"Hell's Kitchen"- 10TH SEASON PREMIERE

To find out about the cast, click this link.

Andi has just gone bald and one man & one woman get their heads shaved (there was about to be a third in Dana before Chef Ramsay stopped everything); the other two who did get their heads shaved were Scott's friends. As it turns out...it was all a hoax.

Signature Dishes:

R1:
Robyn: Sea striped bass
Don: Southwestern Saltibocca
LADIES LEAD, 1-0

R2:
Tiffany: Lamb Schnitzel w/ a rosemary maple-infused lamb gloss
Guy: Pan-seared striped bass w/ BURNED chocolate miso sauce
NO SCORE

R3:
Roshni: Coriander-crusted rack of lamb
Royce: Pan-seared grouper
LADIES LEAD, 2-1

R4: Daniella vs. Justin
2-2 TIE

R5:
Kimmie: Fishermen's Trio
Brian: Unknown dessert
NO SCORE

R6:
Barbie: Some kind of soggy potato dish
Chris: N/A
NO SCORE

R7:
Briana: Duck
Patrick: N/A
3-3 TIE

R8:
Dana: Pan-seared scallops
Tavon: Seafood Alfredo including shrimp, scallops & crab, and it's infused by whiskey
LADIES LEAD, 4-3

FR:
Christina: Molasses-glazed pork chop
Clemenza: Stuffed veal chop w/ truffle infusion
LADIES WIN, 5-3

W/ that, the Men must clean up both kitchens, but the Ladies are getting a special steak BBQ cooked by Rock (S3 winner) & Dave (S6 winner).

FIRST DINNER SERVICE PROBLEM REPORT OF THE SEASON (& this is the 125th overall in the U.S.):

RT:
Briana: Hesitating to recall the names the entrees on their menu just before the start of the DS
Roshni (fish): Raw sauteed scallops- BENCHED (& replaced by Barbie)
Christina (meat): Undercooked Beef Wellingtons

BT:
Royce (in the appetizers station w/ Guy): Initially not able to find anchovies for the salad; also, he undercooked spaghetti- BENCHED
Tavon: Raw squab- BENCHED FOR POTENTIAL SABOTAGE
Justin (fish w/ Tavon): Undercooked sliced scallops

I think this is a first- the BT WIPED OUT in a DS (they also got thrown out of their kitchen towards the end of the DS). The RT WINS, but Tavon's ELIMINATED over Royce to end this SP.

(Final note: Don was actually the other nominee, but Chef Ramsay replaced him on the block w/ Royce.)
