And the Hell's Kitchen winner is...

Hell's KitchenAfter weeks of swearing and tempers flaring, Hell's Kitchen crowned its winner. Last night's installment of FOX's culinary competition saw finalists Bonnie, a nanny/personal chef, and Rock, an executive chef, run their own kitchen for an entire meal. Both chefs did not only create the menu and decoration of their own side of the Hell's Kitchen restaurant, but they also had to show their leadership skills while managing a team composed of past participants.

Chef Gordon Ramsay claimed that this year's decision was not an easy one. Before announcing the winner, by having the finalists open a door (if your door opens, you win) that leads to the restaurant where family members and past participants await, he told Bonnie that she was the contestant who surprised him the most and told Rock that he was rock-solid.

Hell's KitchenEven if Bonnie did improve a lot throughout the season, Rock was named the winner of this season's Hell's Kitchen. Rock has been performing well from the start and was probably the most consistent contestant. He has shown his leadership qualities as soon as the premiere episode and often was the leader of the men's team (the contestants were split by gender for most of the competition).

Rock will now become the head chef of the fine-dining restaurant at the Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa and Casino in Las Vegas. His salary will be $250,000 per year.

Hell's Kitchen will return for a fourth season in 2008. In the meantime, Gordon Ramsay's fans can watch him this fall in Kitchen Nightmares.

While I enjoy both Hell's Kitchen and Top Chef, they really aren't in competition with each other. You tune in to either for completely different kinds of entertainment. Hell's Kitchen is obviously on the rise as is Gordon Ramsay's celebrity (but don't tell him that!) Comparing Ramsay's UK shows, it is evident that he is better suited for US television, even though here he cannot say f**k without being bleep out as he can in the UK. As good as the UK version of Kitchen Nightmare's is, the preview of the US version just looks like it's going to be so much better and I for one can't wait!

Well I don't agree totally with Cody, but any comparison with "Top Chef" really is apples and oranges - their both fruit but there the similarity ends. "Top Chef" is about finding the best and most innovative cook; "Hell's Kitchen" is about finding someone who can run a kitchen during service and do it up to Ramsay's standards - get the food out in a timely manner but first and foremost make it right from the start because the customers deserve no less. Watching Ramsay yell at people is fun but the underlying fact is that he yells at people (like the utterly incompetent Josh) for good reason.

I cannot believe some of the mistakes some of the contestants made ... especially Jen taking the pasta out of the trash ...


Gordon Ramsey is awesome ... these contestants need to be yelled at ... it is the only way that they can learn to take control of the kitchen

Wait, you folks watch this show despite Ramsey's behavior? As far as I'm concerned, the only reason to watch this show is to see Ramsey screaming at these people!

Every restaurant Ive ever worked in was full of people that yelled. Thats all us cooks do. We yell at each other, joke on each other, insult, threaten, you name it. I've worked in kitchens where much worse happens on a normal basis. Working in a kitchen is a high pressure job, yelling is just part of the game. Its hard to understand until you do it.
