Shockingly, we're told there was no evidence of drug use.

That is pretty surprising.

And I'm shocked they didn't shoot him.

That sounds like a classic case of schizophrenia.

Even better from wikipedia on schizophrenia: "Schizophrenia can be triggered by a variety of environmental factors, including significant stress, intensely emotional situations, and disturbing or uncomfortable experiences."

Working for Gordon Ramsey would probably do all of that.

He doesn't work for Ramsay though. From what I'm seeing online, he lost the final episode, then went on to do his own thing (started the website iShootOnions.com).

I don't think he's had contact with Ramsay since the show ended. Or if he did, it wouldn't be the type of contact to cause him to freak the fark out like he did.

Maybe he should've had the psychotic break while he was still a contestant. Then the producers could've given him the win as the most interest personality.

I'd rather have Ramsay scream in my face all day long than deal with even 5 seconds of Joe looking at me like I just ate a bunch of puppies and washed them down with tears from an orphan because I didn't make his pasta from scratch like mama used to.

Yeah, a surprising number of his Hell's Kitchen winners still work for him. I can't fault him for not suffering idiots very well. If you are going on Hell's Kitchen, you better damn well know how to prepare scallops or a risotto (in other words, be a decent line cook and be able to follow simple directions), likewise, if you fancy yourself as a master chef, at least be able to handle the fancier stuff chefs are expected to make.

Seriously.... HK contestants are TRAINED to prepare those dishes. Burner/Oven settings, times, how the damn things should look and feel (Meat "temperature"). I realize the show makes the smallest goofs seem monumental, but some of those contestants seem mentally retarded at times.

I graduated from the CIA, the Harvard of cooking schools. I am board certified in the culinary arts, I have been awarded from seven different food critics in New England, and I am never, ever sick at sea. So I ask you; when someone goes into that diner and they fall on their knees and they pray to God that their wife enjoys their quiche or that their daughter doesn't think her steak is overdone or that their mother doesn't suffer acute neural trama from food poisoning, who do you think they're praying to? Now, go ahead and read your menu, Gordon, and you go to your kitchen, and, with any luck, you might win the annual raffle, but if you're looking for God, he was in prep station number two on November 17, and he doesn't like to be second guessed. You ask me if I have a God complex. Let me tell you something: I am God.

I saw an ad for Hell's Kitchen auditions. It said that no cooking was required. I'm sure they deliberately choose people that will cause fights with each other and fark up the food so Ramsey can yell at them.

They have to be screening for stupid contestants at this point: "Welcome, aspiring TV chefs. Those who know what they're doing, see Bob at the MasterChef studio. Those of you who have a restraining order on them against all things hot or sharp, meet Jane at Hell's Kitchen." The show revels in the fact that it's so trashy it makes Maury look like Downton Abbey.

My wife met him twice. Both times he was extremely kind and gracious. One of the times she literally ran into him in a hallway (think stereotypical two people run into each other and papers fly everywhere). She looked up, saw who it was, and thought she was going to die. He helped her pick her stuff up and went on his way.

As far as his TV persona goes, the anger really seems to be for the U.S. market. Kitchen Nightmares on BBC UK is much more toned down and "real" and his other UK-based shows are the same way. I prefer the UK version since it actually deals a lot less with crazy personalities and more with actually turning the restaurant around.

Maybe it's saying the auditions don't require cooking there. The application to be on the show has some pretty long sections about your previous culinary experience/careers and your likes/dislikes/etc. regarding cooking.

I'm guessing that leaving any of those sections blank will really hurt your chances of making it on the show.

I imagine its somewhat similar to the process of auditioning for a game show:  in theory, contestants are not
supposed to be in the entertainment business, but in reality at least half of the people coming out to
audition are doing so for simple exposure.

Meh.  Don't give a rat's ass about any reality show, especially ones that deliberately do things designed to make the "lunatic celebrity" scream at the "contestants".

Although River Monsters is interesting, but it's produced more in the style of a documentary.  And even that has some things that just don't seem to hold up...for instance, the way Jeremy Wade seems to always catch the elusive fish on his last attempt before leaving the area.

Only Masterchef could take painstaking measures to create a forced narrative from a simple cooking competition (Krissi vs. Bri), manipulate the competition to advance the narrative (Krissi serving up shiatty dishes? Meh, eliminate someone else. Bri won a challenge and gets to pick her team? Meh, force her to change teams.), and then provide a resolution that disgusts virtually every viewer.

The only other reality show I want to see Krissi star in is The First 48.

That would be ok. I find it funny that Natasha hates Jessie, and everyone knows it's because Jessie is so much hotter than her.

Rwa2play: Better: STOP WATCHING REALITY TV!


At this point, it's basically the third major category of show after 'scripted' and 'unscripted'. Reality TV can be done well. Treating your cast with actual respect, casting people who won't just turn everything into a shouting match, and talent shows actually finding the talent they set out to find, those things go a long, long way. It's just that very few reality shows even try to do any of those things.

I don't think she plays to win though.. she plays to not lose. She always ends up in the bottom 3, and always cooks just a little bit better than the worst. She never tries anything fancy and sticks to what she knows and cooks safe. It's a good recipe for not getting kicked out.. I'm not sure if it will make her win though.

Just like Jennifer and Christian in season 2. Once it became apparent how much they hated each other, it seemed like they were squaring off almost every single challenge.

I remember hating Christian. He was the guy who felt entitled to the win and had less than little respect for his opponents (though still falling just short of the savage beast in season 4 in the bile factor) while Jennifer was the beauty queen with the nice smile who knew how to bake and came from a town famous for mushrooms.

...My god, the Masterchef people really do think their viewers are just children looking for a live action cartoon.

Christian was the one who thought that the Masterchef title was his by default, and the rest was just a formality. And when something didn't go his way, it was because somebody "threw me under the bus".

I really like "Chopped". I don't how much time they have between opening the baskets and having to start cooking but sometimes the chefs come up with amazing ideas. And generally they do a good job of keeping you guessing about who will win.

Also I wouldn't mind rooting around Amanda Frietag's basket IYKWIM.
