Before we get into the preparation of food, we're going to go with the wacky music to watch the misadventures of Carol and Giovanni the Waiters. Giovanni can't explain what polenta is! Jean-Philippe gives him a pep talk while Carol brings the first order to the red team. The menu appears to include spaghetti and lobster, John Dory, scallops, and salmon. No risotto? You gotta have risotto! When Chef Ramsay calls out the order, there is no reply. Here's a tip for people who have apparently never seen the show before: Gordon Ramsay likes a loud kitchen. He likes communication. And he especially likes a nice, loud "YES, CHEF!" when he calls out the order.
Twenty minutes in, Giovanni gets his first order in. It does include risotto. And Beef Wellington, which makes me think this is just the same menu as last season. When Chef Ramsay calls out the order to the men, Robert is talking over him. This, naturally, angers Chef Ramsay, who makes Robert call out the order. Robert interviews gleefully, "Yeah, gimme the reins, man. Lemme drive this bitch!" I think I like him. At least he called out the order right!
On the red team, Lacey's scallops are waiting at the pass. They put her on scallops? That's crazy! I told you, hide her in desserts! Chef Ramsay calls her out on her raw scallops and sends her back to do it again. She interviews that there must be something wrong with the oven or something. Yes, I'm sure that is the problem. On the men's side, Ben and Robert (that's the intense guy and the fat guy, if you're having trouble keeping track of sixteen people) have undercooked their pasta. Fools!
Back to the women. Colleen has put Mascarpone cheese in the spaghetti, and is yelled at by Chef Ramsay. If you're curious, I think "mascarpone" gets pronounced three or four different ways here. And then suddenly! The lights go out! But the ovens are still going, and Chef Ramsay can still yell at Danny for his scallops. And Danny starts making excuses and talking back, which is exactly the wrong tactic. But with the lights out, Gordon sends Jean-Philippe around to apologize to all the customers, because they obviously can't cook in the dark.
