    Re: Hell's Kitchen

    Aaron reminded me of the Cowardly Lion. He should have been cut last week, which exposes the weakness of Hell's Kitchen in relation to Top Chef and Next Food Network Star: having the contestants nominate who gets cut. This adds an element of "strategery", like Rock putting up Josh instead of Aaron, which has nothing to do with who is the best chef.

    BTW, Rock putting up Josh KILLED the blue team, dividing them and leaving the hapless Aaron (poor guy, had no business being there. Almost felt like he was used by the producers) to distract them again. Bad move.

    And pulling the pasta from the trash- reminded of the Seinfeld episode when George eats the eclair from the trash.

    Jerry, "Was it in the trash?"
    George, "Yes."
    Jerry, "Then it was trash."

    But at least she did the right thing and put herself up to be cut. Have to respect that.

    From watching last nights episode it looks like Julia is the one to watch. She showed great leadership for her team and she cooked up a breakfast storm making a win for the red team. Go Julia

    Did anyone get grossed out when Jen pulled out the spaghetti from the trash can and tried to rinse it and cook it over again? Jen does not see the other side of the coin unless she likes to eat food from a trashcan.

    And bye Aaron, sorry you got sick but I don't think you belonged in Hell's Kitchen.

    But ALSO the team that loses is the team that loses a team member, so you're more likely to end up on the chopping block if your team loses, thus the reason you'd want to win.

    I think at first, you don't want to get rid of competent cooks because you are competing against the other team, so if you only have lame cooks, more and more of YOUR team gets eliminated while the other side gets a pass.

    I see what you're saying, but as long as YOU have great skills, who cares about your team? So they had to do some more prep work as punishment. boo hoo. That punishment is what many people do for a career, so it's not that big of a deal.

    I don't get it either but my guess is the guys are keeping Aaron in so everyone looks and cooks better than him.

    And how much sweat do you think Aaron got on the fish as he muddled through the deboning? It was like watching a monkey F a football.

    Aaron is hamming it up. Either he is trying to manipulate everyone, or the producers have gotten a hold of him and told him to just milk it, it's good for the show. It makes sense that they didn't want to vote him off. If Rock were really smart, he would pick the two best cooks to be eliminated, and reduce his competition.

    Aaron needs to be tased in the nuts. Also, he is crying about his multiple medical conditions, but I didn't see him have any problems puffing away on his cigarettes. What a tool.

    I still think overall the show is weak, but when I look at it as you guys recommended, it helps. As long as I don't view it as a culinary show, it's ok, but thank God Top Chef is back, where we can see some real chefs in action.

    I was joking with my husband about Aaron. Could you imagine if he won, and was working at the resteraunt and you returned your food because something was wrong. He would be crying and appologizing right there at your table!

    I was sad to see Eddie go, the little guy. He tried his best and we wasn't crying like a baby like Aaron.

    Poor Aaron needs to either gain some confidence or just leave. Honestly, I'm not sure if he is acting or just reacts to those situations that way. If it's the latter then how in the WORLD did he make it on this show?
