‘Hell’s Kitchen’ four-star general fades away

Filed under: Television — pauljlane @ 9:41 am

Bobby Anderson of Niagara Falls has been cut from \"Hell\'s Kitchen.\"Western New York lost its second and final representative on “Hell’s Kitchen” Tuesday night when Niagara Falls native Bobby Anderson was cut from the final five.

Anderson had a particularly tough time on meat service, as he was unable to properly cut and cook beef wellington on numerous occasions. He didn’t get rattled, but he had a tough time stepping up his game, as well.

Petrozza and Jen (once again) also struggled, with Jen and Bobby being put up for elimination. The rest of the contestants felt it was Jen’s time to leave, but Gordon Ramsay disagreed as he dismissed the self-proclaimed ‘”four-star general” to Ramsay’s commander.

“The person leaving tonight is Gen … ” Ramsay said in teasing fashion, ” … eral Bobby.”

Anderson seems to have a good gig as an executive chef at Wegmans in Amherst, so don’t feel too bad for him – he didn’t.

“I came with my smile, and I’m leaving with my smile,” were his parting words.

Jen has defied death for another week. Does Ramsay feel she’s a better cook than she lets on? Is it luck of the draw? Who should win? Share your thoughts.

  1. Paul,

    Bobby got hosed. He was definately a better chef than Jen … and Petrozza (who seems to be quietly skating by). I was thinking it would be Bobby and Corey in the finals. Now … I’m thinking it’s likely going to be Cory and Christina?

    I was supposed to interview Bobby this morning on WECK, but that fell through. He said tomorrow would work better. We’ll see.
