The Bleeping Bleep Report
for Hell's Kitchen - Episode 14
first aired on Thursday, May 30, 2013
Right to it!!
Chef Gordon Ramsay: 1
That's about 0.8 bleeps per minute or one bleep every 74.1 seconds given a 42 minute air time.
Amazing! I don't remember the last time - even over all 10 seasons - that there was fewer than one bleep per minute.
The Team competition was "Name that basic food". Contestants are blind-folded and put on ear phones (so they can't here). Then, Chef Ramsay feeds each of them a basic food that they must identify. Each chef tastes four foods (for a total of 16 foods total for each team).
Anthony got skunked (zero for four). But the big surprise is Jon. He identified 3 of four foods despite being a smoker. Statistically speaking, smokers should have a reduced sense of taste. But Jon knows his food.
Back to the Bleep Count. Why was it so low?! Well, this episode did not have a dinner service. And it's the dinner service with accompanying debate about who should be eliminated that creates almost two-thirds of the bleeps. Indeed, if you compensate for the dinner service using the 2/3rd's rule, then you get 102 bleeps for the day (very comparable with last week's 109 bleeps).
Speaking of dinner service, since there wasn't one, no chefs were eliminated today. Yep, another cliffhanger.
However, we did get a quick preview showing us that someone will set the kitchen on fire next week.
Wait, there's more! Next week, after one of the chefs is eliminated, the remaining competitors will receive a Black Jacket.
See you next week.
Until then, bleep off.
