Handicapping ‘Hell’s Kitchen’

Filed under: Television — pauljlane @ 10:50 am

With Louross’ elimination on Tuesday night’s edition of “Hell’s Kitchen,” the reality cooking series is down to the fnial six. Here’s one look at how things might turn out.

Matt: Not sure how this goofball is still hanging around, but he will likely be one of the next two people to go. He is clearly a cut or two below the show’s best, with his non-stop complaining and inability to work with others.

Jen: If Matt doesn’t leave first, she will. She has alienated players on both teams with her bossy attitude, me-first ways and how she’s quick to pass blame but not accept it. She’s the prototypical reality show bad guy.

Bobby: Niagara Falls’ own “Black Gordon Ramsay” has impressed Ramsay andNiagara Falls native Bobby Anderson appears to be one of the favorites to win \"Hell\'s Kitchen.\" fellow players with his quickness and aptitude in the kitchen. After having faced elimination early on, he’s now called by his peers perhaps the strongest competitor on the show. Currently working as an executive chef at Wegmans, it would not be surprising to see him end up with the grand prize of an executive chef job at Ramsay’s new Los Angeles restaurant.

Corey: Perhaps the stiffest competition for Bobby at this point. She’s taken control of every kitchen she’s been in and done a good job almost every time. She clearly knows what she’s doing.

Petrozza: Worthy of an appearance in the final four, but not likely to be included in the final two. He’s competent but still makes too many mistakes to be relied upon. He’s good, but not quite good enough.

Christina: Not a bad cook, but much too dependent upon her alliance with Corey to make it on her own once the teams are disbanded and every player is for himself. Likely to be the first of the final four to crack unless she can grow a bit more backbone.

“Hell’s Kitchen” airs at 9 p.m. Tuesdays on Fox.



  1. Paul,

    I’m loving Hell’s Kitchen. I hadn’t watched it in the past, but I was fold of Gordon Ramsay’s other show … Kitchen Nightmares … and having two WNYers in the mix was reason enough to start watching. Now I’m hooked. And of course, I’m pulling for Bobby.

  2. Paul,

    I’ve watched all Ramsay’s shows (Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares). I really would be surprised if the final 2 aren’t Bobby and Corey.

    When is Kitchen Nightmares starting again….it’s my favorite!
