First, the good news: Sel De La Terre fans, Benjamin Knack isn’t going anywhere. The sad flip side, of course, is that means he was eliminated from Hell’s Kitchen last night. But first, he caused so. much. drama.
It all started when the losers of the first challenge (replicating a dish from the Savoy) had to clean the dorms. Benjamin threw his back out and decided he couldn’t work prep for that night’s service. Instead, he took the time to sleep, jacuzzi, and, eventually see a chiropractor. When he didn’t feel better post-alignment, he decided to bow out of the competition and say goodbye to Jay, Holly, and Autumn.
When Benjamin tried to give notice to Gordon Ramsay, however, Ramsay’s inspirational words changed his mind. His competitors were emphatically not pleased, especially when Ben killed it at service.
All that was not enough to save Benjamin, however, and he, along with Autumn (who, side note, was totally inappropriately shown in her underwear as the contestants got ready for a challenge) was sent home.
Next week: lovers Jay and Holly face off!
