Hells Kitchen - S16 E03

Reality-TV . Game-Show . Reality

With tensions running high in the house, the chefs must set aside their feelings and prepare for their next challenge. This week, Gordon greets the chefs with a surprising selection of meat as each team will need to prepare eight unique dishes using a selection of ostrich cuts. The rest of their ingredients will be selected as the contestants take turns breaking through giant ostrich eggs to collect as many ingredients as they can in just four minutes. Gordon has recruited special guest judges, David McMillan and Frederic Morin, the chefs/owners of Joe Beef, to help critique this week's challenge. The winning team will be jetted off to Big Bear for a zip lining excursion in the mountains. Meanwhile, the losing team has no choice but to face the tedious job of plucking pine nuts out of pinecones and cleaning the kitchen. Later during the dinner service, find out which chefs can't handle the pressure.

    Hell's Kitchen is a cut above the rest of the current crop of reality shows because of its unique approach and, of course, the bombastic host. [30 Jul 2005]

  • Maureen Ryan

    And therein lies the main flaw of this otherwise entertaining show. Not much time is devoted to actually teaching the novices the top-notch technique that they'd need to make it in one of Ramsay's successful London establishments, let alone the restaurant that gives the program its name.

  • Tim Goodman

    It's painfully derivative on so many fronts that it sometimes seems you're watching five reality shows at once.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • John Maynard

    Ramsay is mean to the point of being unlikable. ... But viewers who like their reality shows with a dash of nastiness may revel in just how cruel he can be. [29 May 2005]

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Not surprisingly, watching a functional maniac pitching fits gets old pretty quickly. It's like listening to "You are the weakest link" on a loop for an hour straight. [30 May 2005]

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Terry Kelleher

    Though [Ramsay's] bleep-filled rants are supposed to bring out the best in his staff, they seem like blatant workplace harassment. When he turns his ire on the customers, it's even harder to stomach.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    "Hell's Kitchen" cribs both the format of "The Apprentice" and that show's major problems. As with the two "Apprentice" sequels, the cast is filled with people who appear to have no clue what they're doing - or, at least, are placed in positions in which they'll inevitably fail so Ramsay can cuss them out. [30 Sep 2005]

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    I suppose sadomasochists or anyone craving abuse will enjoy "Hell's Kitchen," but I won't be tuning in again. [29 May 2005]

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Some will doubtless embrace the show's camp qualities, but I simply kept thinking "Check, please" through the first two episodes. [27 May 2005]
