19 Chefs Compete
March 19

Last week, chefs arrived in Vegas. Chefs cooked in Vegas. Chefs competed FOR Vegas. Before we get to the end, though, we have to get to the beginning. And that entailed Zach completing dinner service... but the Reds winning on sheer numbers. Sebastian paid dearly for his "Zachy Wacky" comment and was bounced early. Now... only 19 remain.

No teamwork whatsoever, and even then, it spilled over into the dorms, resulting in a shout-fest between Gina and Nedra, a shoutfest that resulted in at least one piece of ceiling (remember, this is a sound stage) hanging from the rafters. You know if you damage the set, you're going to have to pay for that. SEND IN THE TROOPS!

The next morning, a troop of Marines go all Zero-Dark-Thirty onto the dorms and get the chefs out to compete in the next Skill Drill... well, it takes Gina some doing. This is relevant. Before we get to the challenge, Gina has something to say...

.... She's done. Or, as Zach put it at the top of the show, "Adios, sara-nara." Umm... caption guy?

"Sara-nara = Sayonara = Goodbye". Actually, Sayonara means "since it must be so." In any event, Ramsay sends her back to pack her worldly goods and leave Hell's Kitchen. Now... only 18 remain.

SKILL DRILL #2.1: Lobster Cage (team building)

Each team will have five minutes to climb over a commando wall and get into a giant lobster cage and collect lobsters. Team with most lobsters wins.

The ladies collect 31. The men collect.... 37! They win... SWEET NOTHING! CREDIBILITY!

The second part of the challenge involves getting into your whites, which Anthony is having trouble doing on account of a rolled ankle suffered from the first part of the challenge. But he decides to buck up and soldier on. But he's going to need that leg looked at eventually.

SKILL DRILL #2.2: Lobster Clean (basics)

In pairs, you are to clean and prepare a lobster. Most lobster plates (claws, shell, arms, and tail) after 10 minutes wins.

Men have eight. Women... 11. So the women are going to have a sushi lunch by Master Katsuya with Ramsay on a luxury yacht. The men are going to get up close and personal with branzino and halibut.  Finned. Scaled. Portioned. And for lunch... you will have fish head stew.

FUN FACT: Nedra names her boobs. "Sushi. Annie. Meet Chef."

Back in the kitchen, we're prepping for the next service. Nedra notices that Danielle has (^_^)ed up three racks of lamb. In the blues... Jeremy.... is lost. Somebody pray for this man, he is lost. Actually, if you believe Jeremy, he's waiting for Chef to show up to work on mushrooms... Yeah, you might want to start on those.

Okay, let's see teamwork.



At HK tonight... Jalen Rose. He may be young, but he's ready-ay..... to eat.

Lobster will be served tableside by Nedra on the red and Jeremy on the blue.

Mary starts by crapping wine on the risotto. "Do you have a drinking problem?" Before we continue, we should probably note that the opinion of Gordon Ramsay do not reflect those of ITV Studios America, Fox Broadcasting, GSNN, and if my sister is reading this... it's a joke. The blues aren't faring any better. At all. Specials are on order, so the lobster chefs are choosing their critters. Jeremy... very carefully. Back in the kitchens, Christian jumps the gun on scallops. Then tries a new batch... and can't really seem to get the hang of them.

One hour later, no food has left the kitchen. All the blues need to complete their first order... Scallops. And there's the first apps right now. And the guests are impressed. Danielle is drowning her risotto in wine. Ja'nel schools the ladies in the art, while the men are looking for Christian to do what he did beforehand. He... can't. Christian and floater Jeremy are made to eat their mistakes. Mary FINALLY delivers a palatable batch of risotto. Ninety minutes into service, and food is finally leaving the kitchen at a steady pace, but the Blues are struggling. Bad fish. Bad lamb. And a bad team. Ramsay orders all the Blues back to the dorm.

So all the women really need to do is finish. They... can't even finish a lamb. And that's all she wrote for dinner service. BOTH teams fail, BOTH teams nominate two.

Once again, the guys single out Jeremy for not having enough hustle. The ladies... single out appetizers - Mary and Danielle. Meanwhile, Susan doesn't... really feel like talking about that lamb of hers.


Jon nominates Jeremy (too slow) and Christian (no sense of urgency). Ja'nel nominates Danielle (no fight) and Mary (also struggling).

Mary says she made a lot of mistake, but she fought back. Danielle still lacks confidence. Jeremy knows he stations, but he hasn't had a chance to cook yet. Christian says he has a lot of heart.

Danielle... Jeremy... back in line.

The person leaving Hell's Kitchen tonight....



One more thing... Jeremy is asked to stay in the dining room for one more motivational ass-kicking...
