Outside, Jennifer says they're all lucky she's gone, because she would have kicked all their asses. That has to be my favorite sentiment of an eliminated contestant on any reality show. Jennifer: you were there. We saw you emphatically not kick any of their asses. Where would you be doing this promised ass-kicking if not on the show from which you were just eliminated?
Back in Hell's Kitchen, the guys look a little glum at the fact that by eliminating Jennifer, they still have Elise on their team. Paul says if he's being played, it's going to come back to bite her on the ass. Elise actually refers to her scheming as a brilliant moment. "We all have them, just not as good as meeeee!" she sing-songs. Will says he was just being honest and that Elise is a better cook.
Ramsay: "Jennifer finally found her voice in Hell's Kitchen. Unfortunately, it was when she was being eliminated."
Two hours next week, y'all! One way or the other, Elise will be off our screens after that.
