You know I watched Hell's for years but last year and this the Talent (or lack thereof) has been pitiful, I cannot figure out how they dig up such poorly skilled groups of so-called chefs - after all these years and they can't figure out and practice cooking scallops and Risotto BEFORE they arrive @HK or practice with a Dummies book.
Anyone applying for HK or MC should binge watch past episodes and practice as they repeat much of what they do YTY. Going in without doing so is sort of like a Law student taking the Bar Exam or a CPA without any study - it doesn't work. Preparation meets Opportunity not the other way around. These folks on HK often appear to be Deaf/Dumb/Blind to fundamental cooking skills when they show up at HK.
Most of the Talent on Master Chef simply blows away HK line cooks.
Cutter - Ouch! How bad can this get "Artisan Pizza" atrocious, two weeks in a row he should've been gone and his defensiveness/rudeness amidst the crap he's put on a plate = dismissal he's a one trick pony with something but can't recall what as his platings have become pathetic - me thinks were he armed he'd put one between Joe's eyes.
Leslie? - Talented and hated perhaps because he lives a life of privilege on Malibu but he makes it easy for others to dislike him when he doesn't need to and it makes you wonder if the producers foster that. His primary fault appears to be his inability to manage/lead a Master Chef kitchen and as this winds down this may be his failing rather than his cooking abilities.
There appears to be a lot of talent in this MC pool and very superior to HK. I stopped viewing HK because the talent and the people seemed to be pulled from the gutter and got tired of the arguing/conflicts and ugliness and pathetic cooking skills with little to no preparation compared to Master Chef talent/people.
