Back from his interview, Matt is just sullenly glaring at the other three chefs in the kitchen. "[bleep] all of you guys," he spits, which mostly just prompts laughter and disbelief. That's our Matt! Bobby is practically delighted, saying "Matty's on the warpath! I'm giving Matty fifty feet for about five, ten minutes!" He may be giving Matt fifty feet, but he's needling him from fifty-one feet away.
In Las Vegas, Jen and Corey meet Rock and Terra Verde, which I guess is the place he won. His jacket says "Head Chef Terra Verde", which is nice. Rock emphasizes that Chef Ramsay is looking for "a future chef", not "the best cook". Interesting spin. I don't fully understand it, but it's interesting.
The next morning, Matt is babbling on about how it's game on and he has confidence in himself and darn it, people like him. Christina rolls her eyes and tells him to knock it off because he's driving everyone crazy. She tells him he should close his mouth sometimes, to which he responds with the Number One Comeback of the fourth grade: "No, you should close your mouth sometimes." Zing!
Corey and Jen return. Christina tells Corey that Matt went [bleep] crazy, so Matt says "You wanna see [bleep] crazy? This is [bleep] crazy!" and kind of vaguely hits his forehead. I'm pretty sure he's trying to imitate Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon, where he was imitating Curly from the Three Stooges. But it doesn't come off at all. Then he fake-cries, leading to Christina commenting that he's kind of getting scary. There are a lot of shots of Matt fondling knives, but all chefs do that.
Chef Ramsay comes in and reminds them that because there's only one kitchen, there will be twice as much for each person to prepare. Then he assigns the stations: Jen and Petrozza are on appetizers, Bobby is on fish, Corey is on vegetables, and Matt and Christina are both on meat. What? The two people who are at each other's throats are on the same station? What are the odds of that? That doesn't feel like contrived drama at all!
Christina straightforwardly interviews that if Matt gets in the way, she won't hesitate to kick him off the station. Matt interviews that Christina needs to grow up, and also that she's "a nasty little bitch with a lot of cellulite on her ass." Way to take the high road there. Also, I don't think Matt's in any position to be pointing fingers at other people's unsightly asses.
We're open! The menu is the usual stuff, plus the rib-eye that Jen made earlier. Within ten seconds of the first order coming in, Matt has set fire to his pan and has been scolded for blowing on it. Apparently, blowing on a burning pan will just feed the fire and also get burning hot oil on your face. Useful tip.
