In the most recent Hell’s Kitchen Young Guns episode, Gordon Ramsay hit his limit. During dinner service, one chef was told to leave, literally take off his chef’s coat and was eliminated from the competition. What cause this immediate dismissal?

While everyone appreciates that cooking in a Gordon Ramsay is a pressure filled environment, there is a method to the madness. Even though the chefs are learning the paces of working in a kitchen brigade, the reality is that the chefs need to learn, adapt and evolve. No one wants the wrath.

At this point in the competition, the chefs should have found their rhythm. The dishes aren’t new, they understand the stations, and they should be able to finish a dinner service. If that scenario is true, why did the unexpected happen.

In the recent episode of Hell’s Kitchen Young Guns, this chef was eliminated during dinner service.

Periodically, the unexpected happens in Hell’s Kitchen. While the rewards are epic experiences and the punishments can be grueling, the show lives and breathes by dinner service. Anyone who has been privileged to be part of the taping understands that those two hours are a fast, furious and heated experience.

Even though the diners are not guaranteed a dinner, the hope is that everyone will get served something more than wine and bread. As UFC President Dana White said in this episode, you better fill up on bread because the food might not be coming.

Although getting the kitchen shut down might be expected in the first couple of episodes, at this point in the competition the chefs should be able to push out food. In Hell’s Kitchen Season 20 episode 7, one chef didn’t even get a chance to plead his case. He was ejected from dinner service.

In classic Gordon Ramsay banter, the commentary in this ejection was simple. “Every table that you’ve touched, you’ve screwed.” When it takes five tries to get the first table’s appetizer course to the pass, the dinner service is off to a horrible start.

Unfortunately, the Blue Team experienced the big KO in the kitchen. While the UFC fighters were in the house, the big elimination during dinner service was an unexpected twist.

Kevin was on the seafood station. While he was ready for the challenge of working the station on his own, the reality is that he was not ready for the responsibility. After bringing raw lobster to the pass time and time again, it was a sinking ship.


Although the Blue team were able to get to the main courses, the fish station started to sink again. While the meat station was ready, the salmon needed more time. The lack of communication and execution was bad.

When Kevin couldn’t execute the salmon and caused the lamb to be overcooked, Chef Ramsay lost it. After asking the Blue Team to step out of the kitchen, he kicked Kevin out and demanded his jacket. Unlike other competitions, there would be no late round comeback. He was immediately sent packing.

The rest of the Blue Team returned to the kitchen and finished dinner service. Luckily, the Blue side was not forced to just have bread and wine for dinner.

Even though Chef Ramsay said that he is patient, he definitely had no patience for Kevin. But, with this ejection, it seems that the weakest links have been eliminated from Hell’s Kitchen Young Guns. It remains to be seen if the remaining chefs can make a positive impression going forward.
