The contestants on Hell’s Kitchen are certainly no stranger to grueling challenges (namely the challenge of being constant yelled at by Gordon Ramsay), but this time it got a little more interesting.

On Friday night’s episode, the competing chefs go head-to-head in a shrimp dumpling challenge that turns into everyone’s favorite surprise — an elaborate strip show.

First being bombarded by the cacophony of a marching band, they’re then greeted by two dapper men dressed as British royal guards who proceed to rip of their pants to reveal speedos adorned with the U.K. flag (what we like to assume all the Queen’s guards wear under their clothing at all times).

The contestants’ reactions range from shocked to desiring to “get up on that,” and Chef Ramsay seems to truly enjoy making them squirm. Check out the full episode on Friday night on FOX at 9 p.m. ET.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
