"Hell's Kitchen": Tennille Flames Out
She made it as far as the final four and had a great start at the beginning of Tuesday night’s show, but at the end she was the target of chef-host Gordon Ramsay’s standard kiss-off: “Take off your jacket and leave Hell’s Kitchen.”
After winning the individual competition at the show’s start, she ran into trouble at dinner, first with rubbery scallops and then with fish that seemed to have just about everything wrong with it.
“Tonight was the worst night I’ve had in Hell’s Kitchen, and I’m devastated,” she told the camera during one of the interview segments.
She rebounded impressively near the end of service, but it was too late. Middleton, 28, the executive chef at Sweetwater Tavern in Falls Church, was sent packing.
Ramsay had kind words for her as she handed over her chef's jacket.
“I am so proud of you,” he said. “You fought back like I’ve never seen anybody in Hell’s Kitchen fight back. The greatest comeback. Never forget that.”
