Gordon Ramsay's Bleep-O-Fucking-Meter: 16
Contestants' Bleep-O-Fucking-Meter: 21
Best Party Planner Quote of the Night: "We're going to make this room sparkle-licious!"
Last week: Vanessa went home. The women won the pizza challenge, which supposedly led to dissention on the men's side (because up until then they'd worked together perfectly and had never gotten angry at each other at all!). Bobby went on about how he's an imaginary Four-Star General again, while Louross lost ground. Both services were completed, so there was no loser, although both teams had to put someone up on the chopping block The women planned to hit Rosann but then turned on Christina while Louross was the men's option. But since Vanessa had already gone home, Chef Ramsay didn't pick either of them. Well, that was productive!
In the opening credits, it's interesting to see Matt try to turn his usual sullen scowl into something approximating a smile.
As the chefs go back to the dorms, Christina and Ben congratulate Louross on sticking around. Corey interviews that she thinks Christina will be put up on the chopping block (is that the official term for that? I think I was confused because there wasn't an enormous literal chopping block for them to stand on. You know if this were a Mark Burnett operation, there would be. And Ramsay would make his decision known by burying a meat cleaver into someone's picture or something) every time from now on. On the one hand, it's good to have a plan. On the other hand, I do not approve of her smug expression.
At the smoking table, Shayne and Corey disagree on whether Christina is condescending (Shayna: "I don't feel that way." Corey: "She's a bitch.") when Christina shows up. Everyone clam up! The bitch is here! In an interview, Christina explains that she is "the total package. I look great in heels, I can read a book, and I can cook. Who knew?" That's the total package? I think I'd need to at least know which book you can read before weighing in. Are we talking about War and Peace or something from the Where's Waldo? series?
Elsewhere, at the couch, Ben an Bobby plan to put the heat on Matt. Ben does one of those aggravating interviews where he claims he and Bobby have "an alliance". Look, we're all smart people here, right? Or at least people who have watched a bunch of television? So there's no need for me to go into the speech about how "alliances" only work on Survivor and maybe people on other shows should spend less energy strategizing and more energy learning to cook risotto, right? Good. I'm glad we're all on the same page here.
