  1. Unfortunately I have seen a deterioration in the contestants in recent years. After all, this is a "reality show" competing with other reality shows for ratings. I believe some entries are just there to build up the drama of the show. I'm not going to name names but you can guess who they are

    1. What I want to know, is why does it seem like none of these people have watched Hell's Kitchen before going on the show? I mean, HOW can you be surprised at the last challenge? "Oh, I was NOT expecting to have to do this". What?

    2. As far as I know tv shows are made for rating I know it won't be be a boring tv show on air and no one watch them. Apparently you know about "some entry" just say names instead of talk like a low life coward.

  2. Nedra was only kept for the drama. Should have been gone long ago.

  3. It was quite annoying that Cyndi would always act like as if she was trying to act something but she would over act
