I always consider which chefs have an edge in Hell's Kitchen. I believe the answer is simple - it's the Executive Chefs. They don't always win but they have a good record. There are 5 executive chefs in HK10 and they are my initial favorites.

ZBC,

I can't agree. The only way you get to be an executive chef is if you know how to do just about everything. However, being an executive chef does not guarantee success in HK10. That will go to the individual best meeting Gordon Ramsay's concept of who the best chef is, which can only be revealed by the competition itself indicating who has the widest array of skills.

ZBC,

Now I see where you are coming from. Javon, an executive chef although only 22 years old, was eliminated after he mangled the scallops preparation and failed to produce a single plate of scallops as appetizers.

HK10, ep. 2

I have not been impressed by HK10 competitors. The men appear to be incompetent and the women only slightly less so. The women won a challenge to cook perfect scallops by 6 to 2 for the men, giving them an award of that day on Catalina Island with Ramsay. The men got to clean the kitchens, shuck, devein and clean shrimp for tableside preparation.

There were some major problems from Barbie cooking scallops and Chris cooking sea bass. Tiffany's decision to cook 6 sea bass without any orders motivated Ramsay to send the Women's team upstairs. The Men had gotten sent out briefly to eat the scallops they had cooked that did not pass muster. Ramsay sent them out permanently slightly after the Women. Neither kitchen had sent out any appetizers in more than 2 hours.

Neither team won and both teams lost, necessitating nominating 2 members of their team each. Chris self-nominated and Royce had not performed well for the second episode. Barbie was a no-brainer. Roshni was the second nominee because the women felt she had no chance at being eliminated and they badly wanted Barbie to go.

I think we will see Barbie switched to the Men's team. Don was talking like he did not want to continue to be part of that team. We'll see.

HK10, ep. 3 started with a Challenge to cook an all-American menu for newly naturalized United States citizens (or actors impersonating them). The Women's team got together mini-pizza, sliders and Cobb salad faster than the Men did and won. The Men had to saw off all limbs and then pull up a massive tree so it would fit into a dumpster. the women went to a Safari Park in San Diego by private jet. This is another example of Ramsay showing off since it is only 100 miles from Los Angeles to San Diego and not much time could have been saved.

Dinner service revealed a variety of problems, but for the first time the Men finished it and the Women were sent away by Ramsay. The nominees for elimination were Briana and Barbie. Ramsay eliminated Briana

HK10, ep. 4 started in a corral with lambs to be captured for their collars, which had one ingredient on each. the Women caught one more in 5 minutes than the Men. Those ingredients were added to lamb steak, lamb chops, ground lamb or rack of lamb in head-to-head competition. The Men won when Robyn and Barbie faltered with raw ground lamb that Ramsay was unwilling to eat. The Men got to visit Hollywood Park race track with $100 to use for betting. The Women got to clean and eat lamb testicles, who with proper cooking style can be quite delicious but did not look that way under simple boiling.

Dinner service was a nightmare getting worse as it progressed. Brian, Roshni, Don, Danielle, Robyn, Justin and Royce all were banished. However, performance in the kitchen got much better!

Ramsay judged that both teams lost. Brian and Don were nominated for the Men. Roshni and Danielle were nominated by the Women. Don was eliminated and Danielle and Brian were sent back in line. Roshni had to give up her jacket, but it was for moving to the Blue team. She had better perform there, as she already has 3 of 4 episodes as a nominee for elimination.

HK10, Ep. 5

It's Mexican Night in Hell's Kitchen. The challenge started with preparation of 5 Mexican dishes from each team selected out of 7 and made with 25 ingredients on balls that were released from the ceiling to simulate breaking a pinata. The judges were renowned Mexican cuisine experts Thomas Ortega and John Sedlar. The Red team won a close one 2 points to 1. That gave them a fine Mexican meal at Sedlar's restaurant Rivera and salsa dancing lessons. The Blue team had to eat tripe, which is an acquired taste (I would not eat it except in menudo when the cooking process makes it a treat. They also had to prep both kitchens for Mexican Night.

Dinner service was a shambles. Many chefs got themselves banished to upstairs by violating fundamental principles.  At the end there were 4 in the Red kitchen and just Brian and Roshni in the Blue kitchen, but both teams did finish dinner service.  Ramsay stated that both team were losers. That meant nominate 2 from each team. The Blue team nominated Patrick and Guy, who had the first major errors. The Red team nominated Danielle and their favorite whipping girl Barbie.

This episode finished with ToBeContinued, not unprecedented but fairly rare on Hell's Kitchen.

HK10 Ep. 6

At the start, Barbie and Patrick easily argued their case for not being eliminated. Danielle was properly eliminated and Guy was safe. A Fashion Night Challenge involved creating three dishes (one appetizer and two entrees) inspired by fashionistas and present them to fashion world notables David Meister, Amanda Che, and Ina Soltani.  These judges clarified that they are looking for healthy and spicy. They rated the dishes 2-1 for the Blue team due primarily to Tiffany’s fried eggplant, which made the Blue team eligible for the reward. They got to spend the day shopping for new clothes with thousands of dollars at a fancy Malibu boutique and got their dishes on the menu for that evening.  After shopping, they went wine tasting in Malibu. The Red team had to carry in from a truck heavy low-rise panels to form a runway.

Ramsay pulls one person from each team to help him plate, Kimmie for Red and Royce for Blue. Clemenza started some scallops without any order to match them against. It’s another ToBeContinued. Why was this such a content-free episode?

As the song goes from one of my favorite musicals, "1776", John Adams laments "Is anybody there? Does anybody care?" I am feeling that way about this thread since there is no dialogue except that which I put here.

Hi Apskip!! thank you for the recaps which I enjoyed so much now that I don't have much time watching so that I have to cut some tv shows and series. 24 hours is surely not enough to catch up every episodes of my favorite shows. 

After 6 episodes, this season is starting to get my ire especially after the super boring episode 6. almost 20 minutes of reward challenge?????? Ramsay sure knows how to make me cut his shows (I've dropped Masterchef)...should I drop this one too?? hehehe.

Well, consider my reply as a subscription to your recap  :)

That was the usual misleading advertising from FOX, as nobody from the RED team dared to steal meat from the BLUE team.

I can't say this happened in other seasons, but I've noticed quite a few deceptions in the previews. It rather irks me to say the least. Which reminds me the finger cut off didn't happen either.

HK10, Ep. 7

The Fashion Night dinner service continued. Clemenza was given a severe verbal whipping by Ramsay for cooking scallops ahead. Clemenza argued that he essentially had to do so because he was incapable of cooking enough to order. As if to underscore his point, the orders came in for 16 plates of appetizer scallops and he had to ask Brian to assist. The Red kitchen was in chaos too. Barbie was helping Tiffany and Dana on scallops but the first plate to be sent to the pass was judged undercooked by Kimmie. As was frequently the case, nobody wanted to own up to it. Robyn was also trying to help out and not finding any appreciation for that from her teammates, who jealously guarded their turf.

Each course had to be carefully synchronized with the fashion show. The dishes were supposed to be ready to serve when it each of the 3 parts of the show was completed.  The corollary was that no dish could be served until that part of the show was over.

Guy sent cold beef to the pass, but Royce sent it right back. Clemenza during the challenge had earned the right for his swordfish dish to be featured on the Fashion Night menu. However, there were a lot of orders (17 or 18 depending on who you talked to) and he had to make them simultaneously. There was only fish for 11 orders. The Blue team was chaotic throughout. The Red team finished about 10 minutes sooner. They won and Kimmie’s excellence was noted by Ramsay.

The Blue team had to nominate 2. Clemenza had a bad night and was an easy nominee. The other nominee was difficult and Guy got the nod finally. Ramsay gave it the maximum suspense and sent Clemenza back into line to live another day in Hell's Kitchen. Guy was sent packing, with Ramsay’s statement that he proved he was not the guy.

HK10, Ep. 8

The challenge is for the chefs to create dishes, from ingredients revealed in five-minute intervals, including from the beginning. Platters are lit from underneath. Every five minutes, the next platter lights up and the chefs are racing for the best ingredients.

Anita Lo, executive chef of Annisa, Douglas Keanne, executive chef of Cyrus, and Michael Cimarusti, executive chef of Providence, judged the teams. Each chef will award the chefs with a number of stars. The most stars will win. Red won.

Christina's winning lobster dish was on the menu for that night's dinner service. The winning team received a day of pampering at the spa. As an added bonus, each of the winning women received a set of cookware. The Blue Team had to clean the dormitories before prepping for the dinner service.

Ramsay invited special guests to sit at his Chef's Tables. Justin of the Blue Team served UFC fighter Tito Ortiz while Robyn of the Red Team served World Champion Sugar Ray Leonard.

Clemenza's demonstrated a disconnect cooking pasta. Christina was going well with risotto, but she and Brian both needed two tries with their VIP risottos.

Robyn screwed up the Wellingtons. Tiffany finally got the Wellingtons done right, but the  Blue kitchen failed to send out a single entree. The entire team is asked to leave the kitchen. The Red team finished their dishes.

Brian explained that he has been nominated for the first ticket slowing them down and Clemenza was the second nominee. Ramsay found this ridiculous, saying, "neither one of you deserve to be nominated." He had his own nominees, Patrick and Roshni. Roshni bit the dust.
