GF, I noticed that too. Our DD says that the girl who won is in another restaurant in Red Rock, not exec chef at original place there and wasn't for long at all. She knows a server there.

Are staged and manipulated the same?

I believe the contestants were carefully chosen, profiled and psych evaluated, and the producers got just what they were getting. And I'm sure there was a measure of "Jerry Springer Puppet Mastering ' going on.

I see HK being the audition for a probation period as Exec Chef for Ramsey.

I wanted Petroza to win but agree with Chris getting it.

Bobby, Ben, Lou, Cory seemed to understand the finaly was an opportunity to advance their careers.

Matt still doesn't get it.

I'm sure Jen will never be silenced but will anyone be listening?

Nice guys finish last? This really was a definite 'downer' for me. Really! Petrozza seemed to be just too nice. I could see Christine winning but then I got mad that Petrozza even tried. I just resent someone being disappointed when this guy was so caring for other contestants. He even wanted to put him self up for getting axed as he knew he did not do well that night. I just feel Ramsay worked it so Christine would outshine Petrozza with her knowledge. I think Corey would have been more of a competitor than Pet rozza, she has hair on her teeth. But as Ramsay coordinated the winners and losers, he put Petrozza on the guillotine. Just made Christine look more qualified than someone who had big heart.

As Petrozza said, she was just 'snot nosed kid'. I could not agree more. Christine just seemed to confident for me and the one time she cried and Ramsay fell for it. Well, one thing I know, I will never ever eat at her restaurant. I have too much feeling for eating food that took the prize from Petrozza. Do you agree that nice guys do finish last?

Just think I watched every show that made her the winner. What a waste.If I sound cynical I am. I'll get over it.
