Time For Black Jackets
Chef Ramsay reveals to the remaining All-Stars that they will be competing for the coveted black jacket by facing a series of three difficult challenges. Hell’s Kitchen, Season 17, Episode 12, Five Is The New Black, Aired 1/12/18
Millie nailed this “taste it then make it” challenge! He was the first one to get a black jacket! Nick gets the next one.
Michelle cannot get any ingredients before everyone else in the second challenge.
Elise says she has to get to black jackets so that she can shine as an individual which is her biggest strength… She does realize that a kitchen is not anything to do with an individual, right? I’ve never worked in a professional kitchen, but it seems like it would be a team effort and having to work together with one leader but that leader is not an individual.
Michelle is the third person to get a black jacket. Benjamin gets the fourth one.
FINALLY Elise is gone… What a humble exit, though… So out of character for her on this show. She does say she was off during the challenges, and I have to say it certainly seemed that way from the first challenge on. She seemed to be sabotaging herself. She couldn’t describe her dish, she was just off her game completely.
So close all the way to the end with Jennifer and Robyn, the thing that sucks though is that Robyn can’t win the whole thing because she’s not a leader, she’s a loose cannon and all over the place. Robyn gets the final black jacket.
I feel like Jennifer could lead a team and she’s more centered and in control. Robyn reminds me of the Michael J Fox’s Chance character in Homeward Bound.
Here we are only 5 left – Elise and Jennifer are gone. I am pretty sure there’s no way Robyn will win, as a I said. I am not super confident Michelle can do it either. I really think my first choice would be Milly, then Nick (he’s really matured), and then Ben.
Who’s your pick to win?
