“Hell’s Kitchen” Season 14 Premiere “18 Chefs Compete” aired on Tuesday, Mar. 3, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. on FOX. The episode kicks off with a jaw-dropping psychological test for the 18 contestants. Read on to know what it is.
Chef Gordon Ramsay wants to test their determination and courage, so he asks the chefs to jump off a building before going inside Hell’s Kitchen. Only a few people volunteer to jump. It turns out that the challenge and the volunteers are all planned out to scare the real contestants.
The first official challenge happens inside. The Signature Dish Challenge is a classic of the show and helps everybody to identify the strong ones and the weaklings. The stand outs (in an either good or bad way) are Chrissa who uses a cookie for the chicken’s coating and Monique who uses processed or commercialized pasta sauce. Monique argues with Chef Ramsay when her sauce was criticized. As expected, the Red all women team is given the punishment. The testosterone-based Blue team goes to an adventure with William Shatner.
During Red team’s punishment, Monique starts to prove that she can be the season’s black sheep with her outspoken attitude. Chrissa, on the contrary is a very shy girl.
It is time for the dinner service. Chrissa obviously lacks technical knowledge in the kitchen. It takes its toll on the Red team because some of them are busy helping her out. To ease the trouble, Chef Ramsay assigns her on cart duty with T.
The Blue team is also having a hard time with Michael. His scallops are always cooked badly, which gives the Red team full speed ahead to the entrees. However, the Red team’s victory is short-lived because of raw meat. It is a no-brainer that Chef Ramsay gets absolutely mad and throws the whole team out of the kitchen. He completes the dishes himself.
After the service, the Red team argues as if they have known each other for weeks. Monique and Christine are blamed for raw meat. Chrissa is also attacked because of her weak skills. She does not give a damn though because she leaves the group during discussion. She proceeds to wash the dishes.
In the nominations, Chrissa and Monique are chosen for the elimination. Chef Ramsay adds Christine. In the end, Chrissa is eliminated.
