Amanda says she's never given up from Day 1. Ramsay asks her what one does when one is "in the weeds" like that. Amanda correctly answers "take control," which Ramsay reminds her she didn't do tonight.
Zach says he should stay because he's passionate, and unsaid goes the assumption that it would be bullshit to be sent home for not cooking enough potatoes each time tonight.
Barret: "This is what I do, I have such passion for it." I'm not quite sure of his math when he says that if you knock him down a hundred times he gets back up a hundred and one, but never mind.
Ramsay unnecessarily says he's not happy, and wants to send all of them home. He selects Amanda, and I was expecting at least one fakeout, but he makes Amanda surrender her jacket. And then Ramsay says again that tonight was an embarrassment, which is why he's not done. But this show is, at least for this week.
