To me, there is a HUGE gap between taking out the trash and serving food.

I'm sorry, but how do you think your CEO would feel if the board told him to go out to the dumpster and recycle everything he could?

Ummmm... so they faked what he had to do? It wasn't reality?

So if your CEO was filmed, you think he would react differently?

LOL, BF, it's a TV show. He can walk off anytime he wants. He wasn't forced to pick up the trash to feed his kids, he chose to.

Did you think Fear Factor was reality too in that they were forced to eat that [censored] to feed their kids or lose their job?

Come on, BF....its a FOX TV show...

One of my coworkers is friends with someone that was on a Food Network show...they said that they were mic'd 24/7 and if the producers picked up on soemthing that they thought would push their buttons, the other contestants were told to fan the flames....As MBguy said, noone is forcing them to stay. Frankly, picking through the trash would be easier to take than Ramsey insulting me all night...

I thought it was a good show and yes the guys should have won.

As for Rock, I kind of got the impression that he thought he was above this. I don't know what his past is, but he acted like someone born with a silver spoon. I'm sure many here have worked in jobs that they did not like or be told to do something that they didn't like. But if they acted like Rock, they would be in the unemployment line. I know for me personally, there isn't too much that could gross me out considering some of the jobs or tasks I have done in the past (loaded cow hides, slaughtered pigs/cows, janitor at a large factory, pitched hay, and even had to get into a sanitary tank on a submarine).

Rock needs to realize that the prize that will be handed over will take someone with the ability and maturity to do what ever is needed to get the job done. Besides being a good chef, you know that Ramsey is looking for other attributes. Time to suck it up and gripe and complain on the inside.

Ok, I am going to have to disagree with you guys on the challenge regarding the creativity. Rock's dish was the only one that was really creative, and he won the round for his team. The other dishes were salads and soups.

He basically threw a tantrum when his team lost, which I'm sure is why Ramsey made him do trash duty. I think that Ramsey sees a lot of potential in Rock and is trying to mold him into the person he is looking for.

Right now I think it's between Jen and Rock.

Sing-I agree that on the creative side, Rocks was better and from what Ramsey said, both sides dishes were tasty. I am sure he picked the gals simply because it was the photo shoot..jmho.

Rock didn't throw a tantrum, he freaked out....buck up and do what you need to do-stop whining...

Seadevil-in the middle of his rant, Rock said something like "we grew up in the ghetto and we never picked through trash"...he was just furious he lost, but it really brought out a bad side of him...I do think he is the best out of who is left.

Sox,
I think he is the best also, but if one of my kids threw a fit like that, I would have planted my foot dead square in their rear end.

I was a little surprised at Brad going home last night. I really thought it would be Bonnie. Another good showing for Julia, but I have to wonder how much longer she can last.

It should be interesting to see the men and women working together next week and to see who emerges as the leader of the combined team--Rock or Jen.

I still think it is between those two for the win, although they both irritated me a bit last night. While I understand that it is a competition, Rock's lack of teamwork and unwillingness to help a teammate bothers me. And I was tired of hearing Jen whine about what was on the menu, etc. after the fact--why not argue a little more strongly for what you thought it should have been in the beginning? It's a little late once you are serving it, for Pete's sake!

I was shocked, I think maybe the guys thought that if they put him up, he would stay against the girls..

Roc's attitude is getting worse and worse. Although Josh was swamped (don't care for him) neither of the guys helped him out - they just watched him suffering! Pretty lame. I thought Josh would be up again against Bonnie and I had no idea between the two of them who would go. I was suprised that the "team" decided on Brad, and that he went home over Bonnie. Maybe Chef likes her around for eye candy.

Bonnie is still there because, as in prior seasons, Ramsey keeps a cutie around for eye candy, and frankly, Bonnie is the only one there this year. She won't last once they all have to work together.

As for Roc, I don't blame him and Brad for letting Josh hang himself. It's a competition, for a huge payout, and you don't win by making someone else look good. Also, in the past, they've tried to help Josh out, and Josh continues to act like he doesn't need help. I bet both guys would have helped if Josh simply said "Please help me guys."

I agree that Ramsey has a thing for Bonnie. She is just getting lost now. Josh did say he needed help and the guys just looked at him. I thought Ramsey was going to make someone trade stations with him though. That's what he would normally do. Guess he wanted them to figure it out on their own.

I was very surprised that Ramsey didn't override the men and send Josh packing. He hasn't done well in a single challenge!

Roc was very cocky last night, and if he's not careful that attitude is going to get him in the end.

Jen has a lot of potential and if she can step forward and be the leader like she's done in the past...I think that she's got a good shot.

I was just at the Green Valley Ranch Casino last week (great movie theater there) and saw a restaurant space that is closed and being remodeled. I'm guessing that is where the new chef's place will be.

So sad to see Julia go last night, although I thought Chef Ramsay was very kind in the way he handled it. She definitely left with her dignity fully intact.

Every week, Josh has been terrible and we were surprised he kept surviving. Do you suppose Ramsay was keeping him around so he could pick just the right dramatic moment to kick him off right in the middle of service?

I think Bonnie is certainly the underdog at this point. But, this is the first season I've watched this show--maybe she stands a better chance than I believe she does.

I only caught the very end where he told Julia to come back after school and win the whole thing, what all did he say to her?

I missed what he said to her, I must be watching too much reality tv, because I am getting sick and tired of watching people cry on TV. Bonnie, Julia, Rock last night. You know this issn't the first season of this show, they knew what they were getting into.

He had to choose between Rock and Julia to send someone home and had a hard time deciding. He told Julia it had to be her, but told her to hold her head high and be proud of herself. That she has a natural ability and has come so far. He also told her that he personally was going to send her to culinary school, and after she attended he wants her to come back on the show and win it outright.

So Gordan has a heart of gold under all that big mean show he puts on.

That's gonna be so great for Julia, I was laughing at her being outclassed at the beginning of the season, but she kept fighting and made it to the final four, along the way she became my favorite person on the show.

He even gave her a big hug. It will be interesting to see if she actually comes back if the show continues.

I absolutely loved seeing Gordan Ramsey's soft side with Julia last night. She will be successful, and how can you beat having a professional like Ramsey who knows how to be successful as a mentor? That's what Ramsey gave her last night. It's not just that he is going to personally pay to send her to culinary school (although in effect she won a special prize on the show with this), it is that he made it pretty clear that he intends to help her become a pro, and prepare her to open her own place.

By the way, has anyone else watched him on Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares on BBC? You definately get to see more of him and less of him as a terror of a boss in it.

I have to say, I used to like Rock but his attitude over the last couple weeks is really pushing my opinions the other way. For him to call Bonnie out after she questioned him and then to turn around and basically throw Jen under the bus! He's not much of a team player. I hope he turns it around. Next week looks like a good episode.

FOX is going to be airing a US version of kitchen nightmares this fall.

I think a lot of what we are seeing with Rock is selective editing too. They do a lot of that on reality shows so they can always have a villian on the show.
