Last night was the season finale of “Hell’s Kitchen” and that meant that either Scott or Jason would win the grand prize. This season was the oddest of all so far, those who at first were at the top, suddenly began to fall from grace, and those who did not show much promise started to slowly, yet steadily move up and surprise everyone.
Jason was the most consistent of all, but he seems to lack sophistication and coolness. This was clear upon them preparing five dishes that would be judged by five different chefs, this was to be their last challenge and decide who would have the first pick for those who would cook for them in their final dinner service. Scott won and after picking his team went ahead and in great detail explained his dish, whereas Jason, seemed in a daze not sure of what he was saying, rather mumbling and at times as though asking for reassurance.
Then it was time for dinner service and Scott, or Blue Team began sending out appetizers without any problems. Jason, or Red Team from the get go had problems and he rather than take charge, instead appeared amused at the laziness that Sandra displayed and her lack of respect for him. Scott had many issues with Jessica and wound up kicking her out of the kitchen, because she was not going to ruin his chance of a lifetime.
Chef Ramsay then had to decided who would win, could it be Jason who was consistent throughout the season, however, was not really able to control his kitchen that night, or Scott, who had been in the bottom more times than any other chef in the previous 11 seasons of “Hell’s Kitchen”, well at the end of the night it was Scott who won the grand prize because he had displayed much passion, had learned and consistently rose above the others with creativity.
