The Bleeping Bleep Report
for Hell's Kitchen - Episode 11
first aired 05/13/2013 at 8:00pm EDT
First, we must correct an error from last week. Cyndi was NOT ELIMINATED at the end of Episode 10. It was Amanda who was let go on that show. Good luck to you Amanda.
Second, Chef Ramsay left us with a cliffhanger ending from last episode. It concluded at the beginning of this episode with the elimination of Barrett from the competition. Farewell Barrett. You did make it into the last half of the season.
And now, for the Bleeping Bleep Count.
Chef Gordon Ramsay: 10
for an average of 1.5 bleeps per minute or one bleep every 40 seconds based on an air time of 42 minutes.
Besides terminating Barrett at the beginning of the episode, there were two other surprises in this episode.
- Ja'nel got bleeped twice. To this point, she had never been bleeped for anything.
- During the dinner service, each of the contestants were given the leadership role of their particular course. This is an important event, since the ultimate winner will be in charge of Ramsay's newest restaurant.
At the Episode's conclusion three chefs were up for elimination: Zach, Ray, and Nedra. For better or worse ... for right or for wrong ... all three of these contestants have been up in front of Gordon Ramsay many times. I'm sure he's getting tired of seeing their faces.
In the end, Chef Gordon Ramsay eliminated Ray. Ta ta for now Ray. If you have been in the food biz this many years, your future looks bright. BTW Ray: Semper Fi!
The rest of you ... bleep off.
P.S. My magic recording device didn't pick up the second hour of this show. It contained Episode 12 (9 Chefs competing). If it is re-aired, I'll create a report for it. Until then, just assume that we'll omit it. After all, I'm doing this for fun, not for posterity. R.B.
