And who goes into one of the most exclusive hotels in the world dressed as a hillbilly, wearing overalls and a bandanna?

The guy who's been told he has to, by production.  I was feeling for him, frankly. And I don't normally have much sympathy for him.

I just noticed that, under Dorian's name, her occupation (?) was "creeler". What the heck is that?

If you can be bothered to look it up, you'll see that a creeler is "A textile worker who tends the creel and other aspects of a yarn tufting or twisting machine or other kind of loom."

What a crock.  Red team does better and better as the service goes on.  Blue team starts out well but falters.  Who loses?  Red team, who ran out of scallops because Shari cooked them every bit as dark as some of the Blue team's plates, and then slightly overcooked a duck breast.  I call shenanigans.  The whole thing, including the high drama, was designed to eliminate two people they didn't want to continue.  Noah did far worse than both of them.

That's exactly what I was going to say.  Also, every single season during the restaurant service, some diner sends something back and Gordon makes a big issue of it - even though he was the one standing there expediting and sent it out.  He does the same thing on Hell's Kitchen.  He even threw food across his gleaming 3-star kitchen.  Ridiculous.  

I hope the contestants had some down time so they could experience London.

Noah should have gone home. I love how he's always bragging about being such a grill & meat expert, and yet tonight he couldn't cook a bloody steak.

And yeah, Gordon was at the pass, so he was the one who sent out the overcooked duck. Such fake drama.

The hypocrisy of this whole show is just so glaring. Totally producer driven with no thought to the actual experiences we see of the cook. Noah was definitely the worst cook of the night!

I think there was a lot more going on behind the scenes concerning Micah than the public has been told. The entire episode, looking at it now with what’s happened in real time, was bizarre.

The episode was shady from start to finish.

This was the most stunning episode of season three, and it was amazing seeing the contestants in Gordon's ten Michelin star restaurant.

There may be one or more inaccuracies in the above sentence due to the amount of alcohol I felt compelled to consume in order to make it through tonight's stunningly amazing episode.

Another epic season 10 masterpiece.  An instant classic.

These team challenges all seem to follow the same script every time, and it always includes Gordon flinging food at the wall in a rage.

Half way watching...I can't believe Noah walked into theSavoy Hotel in his overalls! Disrespectful.

someone from the wardrobe department  coordinated numerous overalls and bandanas so he can always be dressed as a dumb hick.  

I have always thought that GR, on both Master Chef and Hells kitchen, decides early on who he wants as the winner, and the rest of the episodes are set up to lead to that result.

Similar to Untucked after each episode of RuPaul's Drag Race,  Master Chef should have "Master Chef Raw" after each episode to show what really goes down each week.

I'm so happy Nick was saved. I still think Blue Team should have lost against the Red team. I was surprised they won. Noah sucked tonight, he should have gone home.

The two people that actually cooked get eliminated. While Nick doing only plating and quality control before the food gets to Gordan is safe. Sure looks like Nick is the chosen one. If he (Nick) was checking the outgoing dishes, how did the overcooked duck and the raw langoustine get out?

Also, as soon as Noah started bragging about his expertise on steak, I just knew he was going to fuck them up.

Noah was very lucky tonight, he is gone next. Nick has shown a lot of talent, I could see him winning.

Noah bragged and royally fucked-up. Nick did no cooking at all; just plating and "quality-control" which should have caught the errors made by the other two cooks that were eliminated because of those errors (overcooked duck that was sent back & undercooked langoustine).  BTW shouldn't The Amazing Gordan have stopped the "well-done duck" from being served? (IMHO: the duck incident was producer initiated)

I guess I'm only glad that when the ferry (?) appeared, they didn't try to pretend Gordon was in the water, towing it to the dock. They do serve his ego a lot on this show.

I agree with comments I've seen elsewhere that these last two episodes were designed to kick out Subha.  They claim there was a clear winner, but it was clear as mud in the editing.  I'm reluctantly okay with Shari going home for that performance, but Subha didn't do any worse than Dorian.

The first 10 minutes of the episode was "It's great to be Gordo.  He's so awesome."  It follows up from last week's theme of Saint Gordo.

It was all I could do to sit through this episode. The fakery is glaring. And yes, Noah has to wear the overalls every episode due to that being his chosen look by production. He never wears them anywhere else that I’ve seen. 

Remember the woman who had to wear the headband with a big poofy bow all the time? Courtney and her CFM heels?

I always feel so sorry for anyone who is forced to maintain a “look” that isn’t them in real life at all. 

It looked awfully sunny and bright outside for everyone to have been having a STUNNING dinner at a 3-star restaurant. Again .... fake.

I don't think Nick's the chosen one because at this point I think GR knows Subha's track record on team challenges, so why put the chosen one in a position to fail? It just so happens Noah managed to fuck up more than anyone could have predicted. Luckily the judges could just ignore it and pretend using up all of the scallops is the ultimate sin.

Pretty sure the blue team is our Final 3, with Noah sticking around as fodder. I don't think GR envisions Nick on a cookbook cover so he's probably a goner.

...Oh yeah, and the contestants were there, and the two that Gordon planned to axe went home.

I agree. I felt badly for Noah when they made him go to the Savoy in his overalls and bandana and normally he bugs me.

I had to laugh when Gordon shushed Shari with that line about being heard at the palace just before he yelled, cursed and threw food...

I felt sorry for Noah in his yokel outfit at the Savoy too, that was cruel. 

The best line was something about three going home before they leave London and all I could think was, well, technically all six of them are going home...

The kitchen looked fine but did anyone else think that dining room didn’t look like a 3 Michelin Star restaurant?   It looked like a small bland room they put some tables in.  No way that was a fancy Savoy restaurant.

I found it very interesting that Gordo picked the teams and the captains, and made up the rules that barred Noah from being eliminated.

That’s the real Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. Go on Yelp. Lots of pictures. Even a stain was visible on the carpet last night.

And where or when did you ever see an owner/chef dismiss all the diners at the end of a service?

I guess that's the price you pay for dining at a STUNNING, AMAZING, THREE MICHELIN STAR RESTAURANT, owned and founded by Gordo.

The way they splice and edit these shows, he probably had his mouth open a few times and they repeated it over and over... or spliced it up to make more scenes than actually happened. I’m about to the point of just reading here to find out what happened.

Noah, draw bridges open all the time.  It’s not just the Queen that has the Tower Bridge open.  But I just can’t believe he’s such a hick that he doesn’t own anything other than dumpy overalls and a bandanna.  He’d better be careful that the London gangs don’t mistake him for one of their own.  

I hate team challenges as much as I hate restaurant shows.  Shari got screwed and Noah should have been the one to go.

I don't think getting their own cookbook is a prize anymore, is it?

I'm fine with Subha going but it sucks that Shari, who is a legit good home cook (the point of this show), gets kicked off on a restaurant challenge (not the point of this show).

That restaurant looked incredibly dated. I was really surprised by that.

I'm in agreement with everyone here.  As soon as the teams were chosen I already knew who they were intending the winning team to be and which two from the losing team would be sent home.  It's bad when even the editing doesn't convince the audience that the Red Team was the legitimate loser, which is telling right there.  Subha getting sent home when he didn't do anything to deserve it felt unfair.  Meanwhile last week he was saved when he probably should have gone home then....It's very unsatisfying for the audience when they pull crap like this.  It makes us think it doesn't matter what the contestants do and everything is prearranged according to what the producers want.  Now I really don't give two craps who wins thinking it's all predetermined anyway. 

I get the feeling the next to go will be Noah given the editing to make him look like the weakest link on the Blue Team.  When Gordon commented on how he certainly didn't fit in in London dressed the way he was I got the feeling he felt sorry for Noah having to wear that ridiculous Mr. Green Jeans outfit.  His reaction told me he isn't responsible for the wardrobe choices.  Say what you want about Gordon but even he wouldn't want to subject someone to that kind of humiliation.  I've been to London a few times and I can't imagine being forced to walk around there in that outfit.
