Hell's Kitchen All Stars
by Chico Alexander

Fox: Friday 8p/7c; also check listings
Host: Gordon Ramsay with Marino Monferrato, James "Jocky" Petrie & Christina Wilson
Official WebsiteFacebookFacebook
bird, new, square, twitter iconInstagramInstagram
  Last week, Milly's French fries dish would go on to immortality on Hell's Kitchen's bar menu. Meanwhile, Manda and Elise escaped elimination when Ben was ruled to be medically unable to continue. Tempers continued to flare between Robyn & Elise over who should eat the loss, but... because this is Hell's Kitchen, nothing ends on an argument, and Manda steps in to quell the flames.

CHALLENGE #2: Speed Stacking. All you have to do is be the fastest in a cup-stack race. Michelle beats Jared. That's the good news for the red team. The bad news... this is NOT the challenge.

CHALLENGE #2B: SEAFOOD Stacking. Create a four-tiered seafood stack in the fastest time. Because the Red Team won the first stack, they get a 30-second head-start.
- REWARD: The Blue Team gets to have a seafood lunch at Ocean Club at Malibu with Jocky & Marino, then spend the day playing footie with two of America's best: Olympian soccer stars Alyssa Naeher & Julie Johnston.
- PUNISHMENT: The Red Team must take delivery for seafood, prep it for service, and then eat a lunch of fish head stew. Elise tries to get out of it, but sous-chef Christina, who knows all too well of what Punishment will do for an ego in Hell's Kitchen, is having none of it. Lying to her... only makes it worse.

DINNER SERVICE #2: It's Seafood Night in Hell's Kitchen. VIPs include Zach Ertz of the Philadelphia Eagles (C-Note: too soon, Fox. #SadPanthersFan), golfer Jon Rahm, and Alyssa & Julie from the Reward. Michelle & Giovanni are given tableside duty.
- The ladies start strong on apps, but began to unravel on entrees. Barbie (perfect meat) and Robyn (raw salmon) can't stop arguing. Ashley can't stop watching her watch (pay attention, this is relevant).
- Josh mucks up an order, Van delays a ticket by being slow on salmon... but aside from that, thanks to Milly's leadership, the Blue Team complete another near-perfect service.
- Ashley was kicked out when she looked at her watch again, and when an overcooked Lobster Wellington comes up to the pass, Ramsay SHUTS IT DOWN and brings in the men to clean up their mess.

NOMINATED: Barbie and Robyn (won't stop arguing)... though Barbie argues that Ashley & Manda are equally at fault for the loss. Ramsay agrees.
RAMSAY NOMINATES: Manda (garnishes) and Ashley (too distracted by shiny things on her arm)

ELIMINATED: Ashley. She had ZERO fight back.
- "Ashley spent more time staring at her watch than paying attention to her station. And so, her time here in Hell's Kitchen is done."

  The only person who has any right to say anything about Austin Rogers' performance outside of those currently under the show's employ is Scarlett. After all, she's the one to top him. She gets another crack at it against...
Scarlett Sims

Oak Ridge, TN
stay-at-home mom
Lt. Manny Abell
Lacey, WA
Naval officer
Michelle Kritselis
Rolling Meadows, IL
managing editor

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Rickenbacker Guitars, Countries' Official Languages, Accessories, Completes the Old Testament Quote, Stocking the Cabinet Department, "Ded" End.

Scarlett starts with $200 Accessories. At the TV timeout, the champ is behind, $1000 to $1200 for Lt. Abell & $2800 for Michelle.

Lt. Abell finds the Daily Double under $1000 Stocking the Cabinet Department. He "bets the farm" on this: Office of the Chief of Protocol. "What is the State Department." That's the farm and then some, $2000! He ends up with $3200. With Scarlett & Michelle in a tie for first with $3400, Lt. Abell closely begins...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Time's 100 Most Influential People 2017, Compound Words, Botany, Recent Nonfiction, October Occurrences, "The" Movie.

... with the first Daily Double under $1200 "The" Movie. He's going for $1200 again on this: turned out Jim Carrey was on the ultimate reality TV series in this pic. "What is 'The Truman Show'?" RIGHT for $4400! Michelle finds the other on the other end of the round, under $2000 Botany. She bets $3000 on this: the 3 main classes of plant pigments are carotenoids, phycobilins & these greenish ones. "What are chlorophylls?" RIGHT for $15,600! She ends with that much to Lt. Abell's $16,000. Scarlett has $7400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Flags of the World": the flag of Laos shows the white circle of the moon over the blue band, representing this river. Correct response: what is the Mekong River?

The good lieutenant was the only one with the correct response to win $17,199. Scarlett leaves with $34,201.

We end the week with a Friday the 13th show which is going to try to turn this unlucky day to a lucky day. Let's start with Pamela the Graduate, Vanessa the Cotton Candy and Hunter the Diver. One superstition you should know is - NEVER OPEN AN UMBRELLA INSIDE. We have three umbrellas - purple, black and pink. Each one contains either real cash ($3,000 which will make it rain), or DONKEY DOLLARS. After distribution, we start with Hunter. He can keep his purple umbrella or take the Big Box. He keeps the umbrellas and passes on a home office with ergonomic office furniture, Imac, Ipad and internet for a year worth $3,377! He wins DONKEY DOLLARS(ZONK)! Vanessa picks the Black umbrella and can keep it or take Curtain 2. She keeps the umbrella and passes on a TON OF DIRTY LAUNDRY(ZONK). Vanessa makes it rain with $3,000! Pamela can keep her pink umbrella or take the small box. She takes the box and passes on DONKEY DOLLARS(ZONK). Pamela is going to BERMUDA for 6N at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort worth $7,173!

Janina the Big Baby is playing for a Ford Focus worth $20,540! Janina is playing the classic 15 cards game. The Focus is on sale for $2,000. 13 of the 15 cards have either $200 or $400 underneath their numbers. 2 have zonks. If Janina can earn $2,000 before hitting a zonk, the Focus is hers. She starts off with 1 and $200. Next is 2 and $400. She has $600 and picks 15. She has $200 and has $800. 6 takes her to $1,000. She goes on with 5 and $200 is hers. She has $1,200. Next is 8 and the ZONK. Consolation pick is 13 is $400 divided by 2 = $200. 10 was the other zonk.

Devin the Banana can take Curtain 2 of Tiffany's Hockey Mask(in honor of Friday the 13th - get it?!?!?) He takes Curtain 2 and passes on $300 under the mask. Devin wins a trip to Vermont for 5N at Topnotch Resort in Stowe worth $6,958! Morgan is the "Money Fairy in Training". She gets Curtain 3 or the Small box from Jonathan. After a song battle, Morgan picks the curtain and passes on CANDY JEWELRY(ZONK). Morgan wins a home theater with a 65" UHD TV with bluetooth speaker with Slingbox worth $4,650!

Jennifer(as Goldilocks and the three bears - triplets in real life). We are playing WISHING WELL. She grabs the Curtain 1 and the Big Box coins. She throws back Curtain 1. Jennifer can keep the Big Box or $1,300. She takes $1,300 and passes on a ZONK MERRY GO ROUND(ZONK)! Next is Michael the Cowboy who has Curtain 1 and the small box coins. He takes Curtain 1 and passes on a small box which was a $5,000 Nordstrom GC! Michael takes $1,300 over Curtain 1 which was a pair of Icebear Power Sports ATVs worth $4,500!

Adrianne as a cheerleader from Wayne's HS(not really though). She is playing THREE CARD TIFFANY. She can win either $500 or a Ferragamo Collection of Accessories worth $2,597 if she matches Tiffany. Adrianne wins $500. Next is FOUR CARD JONATHAN. Two have cash and two have Jonathan. Jonathan will give her a 4N stay in the Hamptons at the Southampton Inn worth $7,054! Adrianne matches Jonathan. She has $7,554 in cash and trip to the Hamptons. There is one more game left to play -- FIVE CARD WAYNE. One card has $500, one card has $2,000 and two have zonks. The other one has Wayne. If Adrianne gives up the cash and trip to try to play the game and picks Wayne, she will drive off in a Kia Forte LX worth $19,395! She keeps her cash/prizes. For fun she would have won $2,000!

Last deal involves Daniel the Tourist. We have a clue to Curtain 3 involving another superstition -- NEVER WALK UNDER A LADDER. Tiffany is positioned under a ladder which is a clue to Curtain 3. He passes on $1,000 for Curtain 3 and wins a set of power tools with telescoping ladder and Viper Power Tools Garage setup including cabinets, peg boards and more with SMEG mini fridge worth $3,849!

Adrianne trades her trip to the Hamptons and her cash for a shot at $24,860!

She picks 2. 1 was new kitchen appliances with fridge, gas range and dishwasher along with Bluetooth enabled pressure cooker and wood kitchen island worth $6,195! 3 was the LMAD Vault with $1,313 in cash! That means Adrianne wins the Big Deal and it's a $24,860 Hyundai Veloster!

First up, a bedroom with sleep set, a trip to Costa Rica (6n @ Gaia Hotel & Resort), and a Toyota Tacoma 4x2. Top winner Natasha passes, and Gary bids $33,000.

It's Day 5 of our "Salute To Texas!" (J-Note: This series of shows were taped before Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas - especially Houston).

The $1,000 Tossup is LIVING THINGS. Parker Santil from Denton, TX solves LONGHORN CATTLE. She is married with 1 son. Nicole Towns from College Station, TX works for a financial company. She has 3 kids and 2 grandkids. David Vaughn is a police officer from Marble Falls, TX. He is married with an 11 yr old son.

The $2,000 Tossup is PROPER NAME. Parker has $3,000 with WOODY HARRELSON. We add this to the wheel - $10,000 cash from Visit Texas! Parker starts our crossword round with the clue of CRITTERS. We have four words that fit that clue. She picks up the $10,000 cash with a $500 M, dominates and solves ARMADILLO DEER BADGER OWL for a total of $14,600 in cash! She has $17,600 in cash!

Nicole gets her shot and starts the Eggland's Best Mystery round which is SONG/ARTIST. She hits 2 Free Play A's but misses on the $3,500 Wedge. David hits a $3,500 B but hits Lose a Turn. Parker solves ALWAYS ON MY MIND BY WILLIE NELSON for $1,400. She has $19,000 in cash!

David starts the Express Wedge/Prize Puzzle round which is PHRASE. He misses. Parker misses a vowel(I). Nicole loses $1,300 on Bankrupt. David picks up the WC with a $500 D. David hits 2 $3,500 R's, hands in the WC and calls a $3,500 M and solves WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR? for $11,900 and a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic at the Iberostar Bavaro worth $6,050! He has $17,950 in cash and prizes!

The $3,000 Tossup is FOOD & DRINK. Nicole has $3,000 with BREAKFAST TACOS. She starts PLACE, dominates and solves INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION for $6,350! She has $9,350 and we have time for...

...THING. We go right into a $1,500 a letter FINAL SPIN. David solves RESEARCH REPORT for $3,000 and comes from behind to beat Parker with a total of $20,950 in cash and prizes including his trip to the DR! Parker was right in it to the end with $19,000 in cash! Nicole came on strong late in the game and leaves with $9,350 in cash!

The pre-bonus round total is $49,300! David chooses PHRASE over ON THE MAP and WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

David lands on the P in SPIN wedge. With the RSTLNE and his choices of B C K U we have:

_ U _ _ L E / U _

David(like me) thought it was BUCKLE UP. Since it was Texas week and FOOTBALL is big in Texas it was HUDDLE UP. He loses $35,000 but leaves with $20,950 in cash and prizes!

  Today, E! News host Jason Kennedy (Fort Lauderdale, FL) is playing on behalf of Charity: Water. As usual, when a celebrity plays for charity, the minimum winnings is $10,000.

He asks the audience at $3,000 and calls on his Plus One, Ryan, at $5,000. He then gets on a roll, eventually getting to this...

The original filling inside Twinkies was replaced by the vanilla flavoring they have today after there was a shortage of what during World War II?
A: Strawberries
B: Peppermint
C: Bananas
D: Chocolate

As it turns out, Jason had recently looked at an ingredient list for Twinkies in a Vegas gift shop. It didn't help, though, since it's the current list he saw. He wants to say A, but he doesn't know. He uses the 50:50, which turns out to be a good move, as it leaves C and D. Now he's thinking C, but he's not certain, so he walks, giving $30,000 to Charity: Water! As for the answer, it's C.
