HELLS Kitchen?

Recommended Posts

OMG - I've been wondering when his restaurant opened _ I look at Borgata stuff all the time. I'm going to have to get to AC soon and take a look. That's too bad that they don't really get to run their own place. They really do lead you to believe that.

Scott does seem like an a$$hole, but I guess you'd have to be when you work for Gordan!

It's called Forelletto, in the Borgata basement. Just a hint, eat a snack first and bring $$$$. It is expensive as heck, and the menu is small and a little confusing. We saw a lot of people ordering just drinks and desert (which we wish we could have done). The head chef is Steven Kalt, who I guess has been on lots of cooking shows.

I always wondered what exactly their part was in actually running the resturant. It's kind of like the positions on the Apprentice. It sounds all awesome, but really they aren't in charge.

 

If you think about it though, I'm not surprised. Ramsey isn't going to hand a resturant to these contestants who don't have the same level of experience as someone else he could get to run his resturant. The prizes on these reality shows sound a lot better than they are.

Actually, the restaurants aren't owned by Gordon Ramsay. The restaurant offers a 1 year contract to the HK winners as a kitchen employee, after the year is up they do not need to keep the winner. From what I know, there is only one HK winner who was offered a full time position in the restaurant after the year was up. I don't know who it was though. I don't know why they lead the viewers to believe the finalist will "win" their own fancy place. Oh, and they also get 250k.

It does make sense and I can understand them not wanting to turn the kitchen of a very fancy/expensive restaurant to a novice chef, but they really make it seem like he will be the head chef.

 

This year they are all kind of awful, with I think Ariel Dave and Kevin never being brought up for elimination. I think they will be in the final 3. Van has too much of a Temper and Tenille doesn't know when to shut up. I wish they would get rid of Suzanne but I think they keep her to make the show more interesting. Dave is rocking with only one arm/hand - I'm kind of rooting for him.
