While the current FOX culinary competition season has just begun, a few contestants have started to fill a particular role. After another confrontation with Gordon Ramsay, Jason might be separating himself from the Blue Team. Is he Hell’s Kitchen American Dream’s villain?
Throughout the Hell’s Kitchen series, a few chefs have become the people that viewers love to hate. Whether they do not have a great attitude in the kitchen or are slightly more distrustful in their strategy, these chefs add a little extra to each episode. Even if Gordon Ramsay has the most cutting retort, the chefs seem to let the words roll off their back.
Since the beginning of Hell’s Kitchen Season 22, Jason has been more than willing to share his cooking pedigree. While he has cooked under many successful chefs, the reality is that Hell’s Kitchen is not about accolades or reviews. Only one critique truly matters, Gordon Ramsay.
While Jason may not have endeared himself to his teammates, he has equally angered Chef Ramsay. In the most recent episode, Jason decided to cook a steak different from the Hell’s Kitchen way. Although some people might not have fully appreciated the difference, it was not the preferred way. By directly going against Chef Ramsay, it was not necessary a smart choice, but it was bold. Few people defy their Executive Chef. How this decision plays out remains to be seen.
It was interesting that Jason did not get eliminated last week. After boosting about his culinary skills, he has sent out undercooked proteins. Even though there are pressures in Hell’s Kitchen, those simple mistakes are not permissible.
As seen in the first couple of episodes, Jason is becoming Hell’s Kitchen American Dream’s villain. No one knows how long he will survive this cooking competition. For now, he seems to be on the outs with his team, with Chef Ramsay, and with viewers.
What will happen in Hell’s Kitchen Season 22? Watch new episodes Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX. Episodes can be streamed the next day on Hulu.
