Jason is a bald guy with a chin beard who says that winning would change his life. Women will call him "Jason with a pocketful of money" and he'll have to beat them off with a stick. I don't think that's how you're supposed to do it.
Scott is the men's sous chef and Gloria (replacing Mary-Ann) will be running the girls' team. Girls? Oh well. The Men are Blue and the Women are Red. Oh, and this year each team will have to name a captain. Off to the dorms!
The women vote for Vanessa because she was the only one who did well in the challenge. The men squabble and posture and smoke. The women flip through the three-ring binder that contains this season's menu, which we're told is the most challenging yet. Through the magic of HDTV, I can report that one of the dishes involves lamb, cooked until the middle flanges find the pea and knee to wood. Hmm. That sounds complicated!
All of the soft drinks have red tape partially obscuring the logos, but not very well.
Finally, Bobby stands and shouts, "I vote me for captain!" Everyone else gives up and votes for him and then goes to bed. Meanwhile, the women are staying up studying. Good for them!
Next day: Lots of preparation. Matt admits that Bobby's a good leader, and he does seem to be keeping good communication, asking when certain things are done and generally getting things moving. Meanwhile, the women can't find Vanessa. Sous chef Gloria feels the women are going too slow. Someone falls down, but at this point, I can't tell who it was.
It's time for the Pre-Service Pep Talk, which goes like this:
Ramsay: "Tonight should be the most successful opening ever in Hell's Kitchen."
Bobby Interview: "The Blue Team is ready to go. I'm not letting that team lose tonight."
Ramsay: "Bobby. What are the five entrees on the menu?"
Bobby: "Ummmmm...if...I'm not sure..."
Ramsay: "Matt. What are the five entrees?"
Entire Women's Team: Raises hands, thinks "Pick me! I know!"
