'Hell's Kitchen' finaleIt was the finale of 'Hell's Kitchen' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX) and just two chefs were left. For their final challenge finalists Will Lustberg and Paul Niedermann needed to develop their own menu for a dinner service. To make things more intense, their staff was made up of eliminated contestants.


It was fun seeing all those familiar faces bustling around the kitchen, but in the end it came down to two men and two doors. One would open and the other would not. In a blast of confetti and profanity, it was Paul who emerged triumphant.

"We didn't do it for me," he told his assembled friends and family. "We did it for my mom."

Gordon Ramsay, 'Hell's Kitchen''Hell's Kitchen' (Mon., 9PM ET on FOX) found its Final Four, and we're sure it's going to come with plenty of controversy. Thanks to some clever bargaining on the part of Elise, we may never know how Will and Paul really feel about the two remaining women on the show.


In the opening challenge, Elise paired salmon with macaroni and cheese, which she did at the worst possible challenge. The criteria for the judges was to rate them on how much you'd pay for the dishes presented, and who would pay a lot for mac 'n' cheese?

'Hell's Kitchen'Now that the red and blue teams are no more, Elise can turn her joy of fighting to a whole new group of people on 'Hell's Kitchen' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX). The one thing the former blue team didn't want to deal with was drama, and here it came in spades!

Their group challenge had them facing off against some former 'HK' contestants. It was the new black team against Season 5's Ben, Season 6's Tennille and Van, and Season 8's Jillian.

Rather than unite against this common enemy, it was fighting over the menu almost immediately, with Elise at the head of the drama class.

'Hell's Kitchen'Six contestants left on two teams, but by the end of the night there would only be one team. It was time for the handing out of the black jackets on 'Hell's Kitchen' (Mon., 9PM ET on FOX), but who was going to still be around to receive one?


For the opening challenge, they had to divide themselves up with one cooking a 30-minute dish, one a 20-minute dish and one a 10-minute dish.

Jennifer scored for the red team in the first round with a lamb dish that was even better than she believed, but the blue team took the next two fairly evenly matched rounds with Paul's sea bass and Will's prawn plate.

Wolfgang Puck Says Jonathan Could Be Arrested for His Pizza on 'Hell's Kitchen' (VIDEO)

Hell's Kitchen Wolfgang PuckMost people would probably be thrilled to be given lessons on pizza by renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, but for the blue team on 'Hell's Kitchen' (Tue., 8PM ET on Fox), he was making some fairly unwelcome observations.

"Where did you see pizza like this?" Puck asked incredulously, while spooning off an unnerving amount of greenish liquid from the middle of the blue team's pizza. "I mean, if you go to Italy, they arrest you for this, you know that?"

Tommy Flirts His Way to a Win on 'Hell's Kitchen' (VIDEO)

Hell's KitchenA little flirting goes a long way on 'Hell's Kitchen' (Mon., 8PM ET on Fox), especially when the judges are faced with near identical dishes.

There was more than a little friendly rivalry brewing between the blue team and the red team over their duck recipes, but contestant Tommy figured out a way to add a little extra spice to his entry, and it had nothing to do with his culinary skills.

Then again, maybe Gordon Ramsay was asking for it when he invited Tommy to "wow the ladies" -- though, to be fair, they seemed just as impressed with his cooking as they were with his baby blues.

A Drunken Yacht Cruise Distracts One Team on 'Hell's Kitchen' (VIDEO)

'Hell's Kitchen'It was a tough week on 'Hell's Kitchen' (Tue., 8PM ET on FOX) for several women. For the next challenge both teams were cooking for a high school reunion. To get some guidance, Paul and Elizabeth were invited to sit in on a committee meeting, but apparently Elizabeth's mind was elsewhere.

Maybe she was wondering if Elise could really improve her attitude in the kitchen and with the other contestants. Or maybe she was concerned about something she saw on the wall. One thing's for certain. She wasn't listening.


Elizabeth completely missed the Hawaiian theme, and served bacon to a non-meat eating committee member. All of this sent the blue team and Natalie to a booze-soaked yacht trip for winning. And Natalie was soaking up more than rays and alcohol; she was loving the attention she got from the guys.

Moto Restaurant, 'Hell's Kitchen'The contestants got a fun break from the competition on 'Hell's Kitchen' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX) when Ben Roche and Homaro Cantu came over from Moto Restaurant in Chicago to show them some of their fun fusions of science with the culinary arts.


After the demonstration of liquefying an orange with sound waves and freezing ice cream in 45 seconds with liquid nitrogen, the contestants had to get down to business. Science is fun and Ramsay wanted to see what they could do with the barest of minimums. So prepare a meat dish with water and fire only.

Monterray Goes Toe-to-Toe With Sous-Chef Scott on 'Hell's Kitchen' (VIDEO)

'Hell's Kitchen'After a disappointing dinner service on Monday night's episode of 'Hell's Kitchen' (Tue., 8PM ET on FOX), the teams tried to rebound when cooking for Olympians. Unfortunately, the adage that there's nowhere to go but up didn't apply.


Elise stopped arguing and hating on Carrie when she undercooked the fish herself. At least she had the integrity to take her lumps. Monterray, however, failed to follow directions and wound up with sous-chef Scott Leibfried in his face.

Constant Fighting Leads to a Shocking Elimination on 'Hell's Kitchen' (VIDEO)

'Hell's Kitchen'Gordon Ramsay isn't about making people happy and giving them what they want. And that's exactly what happened in the surprising elimination on this week's 'Hell's Kitchen' (Tue., 8PM ET on FOX).


First, after the red team decided -- and she volunteered -- to send Carrie over to the men's team since she and Elise simply cannot get along, Ramsay came along with an idea of his own. Natalie should join the men instead, and the rest of the women had to get over it and make it work.

Natalie came through as a leader for the blue team during the opening challenge, while the women wouldn't let Carrie take over, despite her repeated efforts. Even after their loss, they continue to pile on while they cleaned up and the blue team went off to relax.

Carrie and Brendan Find Time to Flirt and Even Hook Up on 'Hell's Kitchen' (VIDEO)

Carrie and Brendan, 'Hell's Kitchen'Who says you can't find love in Hell? For a while, we thought we might have stumbled onto the wrong reality show, but it was indeed 'Hell's Kitchen' (Tue., 8PM ET on FOX) we were watching. You wouldn't have thought they were in the midst of one of the most intense culinary reality shows on all of television to watch Carrie and Brendan, though.

While most of the contestants were cramming and preparing for the dinner service the following night, these two were giggling and flirting like they were on a school field trip. This, after a brutal loss to the men led to the women literally drinking meat for lunch and then cut the meat delivery that night into portions.

'Hell's Kitchen' season 9 premiereLeave the kinder, gentler Gordon Ramsay to those wussies on 'MasterChef!' If you're serious about cooking, and you can take the abuse, welcome to the Season 9 premiere of 'Hell's Kitchen' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX).


This must have been the most brutal opening week in 'HK' history, as it was enough to send one contestant to the hospital, and yet still someone was eliminated!

To his credit, Jason Zepaltas certainly had the will to stay in the competition, but his body just wasn't having it. He started feeling dizzy in the kitchen, leaving his teammates concerned. After an hour of struggled breathing, the medics were called in and he wound up getting oxygen.

Fox Makes Changes to its Summer Schedule

Gordon RamsayGordon Ramsay fans will be delighted to know that soon they'll be getting back-to-back doses of the potty-mouthed British chef, Monday nights on Fox. And antiques fans can set a date with the Keno twins for the launch of their new show.

Following disappointing ratings for the Season 2 premiere of 'MasterChef' earlier this week, Fox execs have tweaked the summer schedule to give the cooking show a boost. It will now air before ratings powerhouse 'Hell's Kitchen,' which returns for its ninth season in July.

According to Deadline.com, Fox had originally planned to air 'MasterChef' Mondays and Tuesdays at 8PM ET, an hour earlier than last summer. But, after ratings plummeted a whopping 33 percent on Monday, and went up only 10 percent the following night, Fox is moving the series to the 9PM ET slot, which is where it aired last year behind 'Hell's Kitchen.'

The move on Monday will be made right away, with a 'MasterChef' rerun airing Monday June 13 at 8PM ET, leading into a new episode at 9PM ET. Come July, Fox hopes that 'Hell's Kitchen' viewers will stay with the network for a second helping of Ramsay.
