Petrozza is a good chef and I would have loved to see him win. His menu was very good and risky. He would have easily won had he not lost time with the entrees service and had been quicker in replacing the aps.

Christine is very smart she won the moment that Chef Ramsey said "very LA" concerning her decor and she new that if she wanted to control the kitchen and the service she had to play it safe.

Ramsey needs a spirit he can model (which is normal these are his restaurants)and Christine demonstrated she can follow instruction and learn.

Petrozza did the same. I think he is a good chef and a very human person. If anyone knows where I can write to him please tell me.

If he opens up a restaurant with the knowledge he has acquires from Ramsey and his ideas for menus, he will be a great success.

And he surely can hold his head up high, he did not loose to a kid as he says. He lost to a business plan nothing more and nothing less.....

I really had hoped that Petrozza would win it - he seems like such a gentleman and, though messy - really is quite creative in the kitchen. I really hope that something good comes his way from his exposure on Hell's Kitchen and I wish him all the best.

I was also hoping Petrozza would have won. I feel that he showed his experience in a very professional way.
Ramsey did say he was looking for youth, but I don't think that is very fair. If you are looking for youth, why bring older people on the program to compete for the best Chef.

I told my wife after Christina and Ramsey went shopping together that it was all over. Ramsey is a apron chaser who hurt a very deserving chef and gave $250,000 to a nothing chef.

I could run a kitchen better than Christina with Ramsey screaming his lungs out. You just don't listen to the guy.

I would really like to see the results of the patrons comments. That would probably prove my point.

I think Petrozza should have won based upon his creativity and experience.
Maybe in a perfect world he would have, however it IS Ramsey's place and HE gets to say who is going to run it.
If Christina is smart she should hire Petrozza and between the both of them it will be the BEST restaurant in town!!
