Time and time again on this season of "MasterChef," chef Gordon Ramsay asked sight-impaired competitor Christine Ha: Am I being pranked? Are you really blind? True, it's an un-P.C. question. But it's the question that everyone has been thinking as Christine continued to cook her way ahead of her fellow competitors on Season 3 of "MasterChef," the search to find the best home cooks in America. Under most circumstances, the compelling story line going into next week's finale would be Josh Marks.

Gordon Ramsay's reign of kitchen terror continues on Fox, with "Masterchef" returning for a fourth season. "We're excited to be back for another season of 'Masterchef," Ramsay, who serves as executive producer and a judge on the series, said in a statement. "I am continually amazed by the raw talent, passion and creativity of home cooks across America. The contestants raise the bar every season, and it's an inspiration and exciting challenge for us. " The third season of the culinary competition series, which pits home cooks against each other, is currently airing on the network.

The finale of "Hell's Kitchen" came down to a Passion vs. Palate Play.  And passion ruled the day as Chef Gordon Ramsay crowned Christina Wilson the Season 10 winner of "Hell's Kitchen. " Her punishment -- er, make that her reward! -- is to become Ramsay's full-time employee at his new steakhouse, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas. There, she'll continue to toil under "Hell's Kitchen"-like conditions under Ramsay's rule -- but she will at least get paid to do it. And a princely sum at that: $250,000 a year.

"Tabatha's Salon Takeover," which premieres tonight at 10, is Bravo's contribution to the growing sub-genre of "whip it" television, in which self-anointed experts, preferably with non-American accents, parachute into crisis situations -- a floundering restaurant, a discipline-challenged family -- and whip everyone into shape. As the title might indicate, "Tabatha's Salon Takeover" provides this service for struggling hair salons. A "Kitchen Nightmares" setup, only with hair instead of food and stylist/salon owner Tabatha Coffey instead of Gordon Ramsay.

Gordon Ramsay has won a libel action against a British newspaper that accused the celebrity chef of faking scenes on a reality TV show. The Evening Standard claimed in November that parts of "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" -- in which Ramsay helps save failing restaurants -- had been exaggerated. It also claimed the program had put an incompetent chef into place at a struggling bistro featured in one episode.

CELEBRITY chef Gordon Ramsay has made his reputation on his outsize personality as much, it seems, as his food. On his numerous television shows, he is loud, profane, in control -- and very much in-your-face. So when the volatile host of "Hell's Kitchen," "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" and, most recently, "The F-Word" opened his first Los Angeles restaurant, Gordon Ramsay at the London West Hollywood, last Tuesday night, was Ramsay screaming at his staff in the kitchen?

Ah, the "MasterChef" leg pull. That's the fake-out kitchen maneuver perfected by judges Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich. It was meticulously served up when Joel, wearing his U.S. Army camouflage, came before the judges with his hearty, homey Jamaican chicken and rice and peas. His cordial demeanor crumbled when Ramsay pressed him on his ultimate goals. A restaurant. Named after his son. Who drowned five years ago when Joel was in military school. Trembling, holding back tears, Joel went on to give the judges, and America, a tiny glimpse of a soldier's life.

Outstanding happy hour deals at top L.A. bars and clubs. Gordon Ramsay may be best known for screaming at petulant underlings on his reality TV ventures, but he makes a much softer sell at the London, his upscale-approachable WeHo venture. From 5 to 7 p.m. on weekdays in September, the London will abrasively belittle its prices on select drinks, appetizers and even valet parking down to $5. That five-spot will get you a refreshing-sounding Summer in London (London Dry Gin, grapefruit juice and champagne floater, hopefully not with a side of rioting)

IT'S ANOTHER British invasion for import-cookbook lovers. The latest wave of impressive cookbooks published in the UK -- written by prominent chefs and food writers (and a novelist too) -- is picking up steam. Although some are available only as imports, more are spinning off into American editions. For Anglophiles, the last year's publications are the next best thing to actually having breakfast at the Wolseley or dinner at Maze, or cooking with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall or Fergus Henderson.
