Back in front of Ramsay, Joanna tells him that she is the first nominee. But before we get to the rest of this, I just have to say how much I loathe Melissa's hair. If she kept it properly tied back and only wore it loose and flowing at appropriate times, I'd be admiring it. However, every freaking time there's a lineup post- or pre-service, Melissa has combed and draped her red curtains of hair all over her shoulders. It's unprofessional and all it really says is, "I don't actually care about cooking, I just want to look good in case a talent agent might want to sign me for acting or modeling. Yes, cameras, I believe I am that beautiful." I mean, really, act like a freaking chef and tie that shit up -- this is a kitchen no one cares about your Pantene dreams. Whew! Glad to finally get that out.
When Joanna tells Ramsay that "they" (meaning, not her) named the second nominee as Julia, Jen interrupts and says, "I'm the next nominee, Chef." At Ramsay's prompting, Joanna explains that Melissa, Jen, and Bonnie decided on Julia, "solely based on her current knowledge of ingredients and running a fine dining restaurant." Next, Jen explains her trashed and washed spaghetti, which elicits a recoil from Ramsay and a smirk from Vinnie. Faced with his three choices, Ramsay decides Julia should not be one of them and sends Joanna home for the toxic crab. Ramsay sends the rest of the contestants off, ordering Jen, "And you, missy -- stay away from bins!" Hee.
