17 Chefs Compete
March 26

Last week, we began with a lady quitting... Gina.... and ended with a guy getting booted... Christian... after the mother of all culinary meltdowns in the Kitchen leaves ZERO entrees served and 17 scared cooks wondering what the heck could be up Ramsay's sleeve next.

We pick up where we left off with Jeremy having a heart-to-heart with Ramsay, wondering if he's lost his fight. He hasn't, so he's going to come back hard the next round. It's a welcome change that the Blues were looking for the LAST TWO SERVICES. The Reds have a similar come-to-Jesus pep talk.

SKILL DRILL #3: The HK 3K (lunch service)

Not many people know this but Gordon Ramsay is an AVID marathon runner, at least 12 in his life. You know, when he's not cooking or screaming at underlings. Today, he's organizing a 3K to raise awareness for childhood obesity. Didn't we do this show before somewhere else? Anyway, we're joined by Olympians, Maurice Greene, Natalie Coughlin, and Danell Leyva.

After everyone gets a run in, we're going to open up for lunch, and the team that completes their service FIRST wins. Mary and Dan will be running with the runners, while everyone else will be prepping for lunch. The menu includes a grilled flank steak wrap, a pan-seared salmon, and an edamame portabello burger, all served with sweet potato fries.

Mary... is slow. Not just on the pass, but... she's just slow. Meanwhile, Dan finally checks into the kitchen... with some of the other finishers. Everyone should get a starter of a smoothie and salad before the entrees are served. Not just an order from Ramsay, but also good life advice. Zach jumps the gun on salmon before the salad is up, but the guys get back on track. Remember this, it's relevant.

Mary returns to the kitchen and gets help catching up to speed. The guys complete the apps, moving onto entrees. We should be killing this... but here come the women.... almost. Entrees on both sides of the kitchen are being served... The guys have three tickets left to the girls' four. But here's where Zach's salmon comes back to bite him. First, premature... then raw... then... back to the premature salmon. The same salmon from earlier refired.

Kids, I'm going to pause here to offer some words of wisdom. In HK, Chef is a lot like your significant other. If he asks you a question, chances are he already knows the answer, so whatever you do... DON'T LIE.

That lie... costs them. REDS COME FROM BEHIND TO WIN... a trip to California wine country. On a private jet. Or as Q calls it.. home. The men, thanks to Zach, are going to ... listen to Michael kvetch, then they're going to head out to clean the route, then prep for the next dinner service.

Before the next service, Danielle has a bit of a downer moment. On the other hand, Dan won't shut up. He doesn't pay attention, he won't look at what he's doing, and he won't shut up about it. And it looks like him and Michael are about to go before someone steps in and puts an end to this nonsense.

Tonight's service will feature a stunning tableside Greek salad. Cindy and Jeremy get the call.



At HK tonight... more athletes (Kristi "I'm Married to a Former Hurricane" Yamaguchi and Ryan "I'm not" Hollins). Per Michael and Ray's request, Ramsay reads the ticket slowly. This is going to be one of those nights.

Ray's first up with the risotto... and boom. Done. Served. Meanwhile, in the dining room, Jeremy... well, he's trying. The Reds are also off and running with salads and appetizers. Back to that risotto, though... It's Ryan Hollins' and it's hard. He'll try again. He undersands... and he's confused. I'm confused for you, Ray. He gets it back out and perfect this time. Good bounce back.

Jessica's looking to keep the train going in the Red kitchen, with a boatload of risotto. For one portion. Why did we have three? Back in the Blues, we're onto entrees. Dan on meat and Michael on garnish have to be in total sync. Of course, lamb is raw. Twice. Third time's the charm, Dan? I don't know. Anyway, Jacqueline and Danielle hope not to make the same mistake on the Reds. They... do worse. Raw chicken. Second attempt... better. Half of the blue diners have received their entrees. The other half... still waiting on lamb. Michael decides to take action on Dan's station... and it looks like they're BOTH going back to talk to Ramsay about ... well, whatever that pushing/shoving/yelling is.

Eventually they get their act together. And it's well worth the wait. Reds, they're still feeling the pressure. The Wellingtons are overcooked... twice. Third time lucky? Third time lucky. 150 minutes into service, and both teams are.... DONE! And no one got shooed out. That's a plus. "But I am NOT celebrating." Never mind.

Meanwhile... the BLUES finally get a win making some forward progress. The Reds deliver their worst service, and as a result, they must come together to nominate two.

Danielle on meat is singled out for her Wellingtons. She immediately comes to her own defense, saying it's a new environment for her. Jessica, on the other hand, has been second-guessing herself on risotto.


Amanda nominates Danielle (doesn't know how to be a leader) and Jessica (in over her head). But there's one more chef Ramsay wants to hear from... Jacqueline. Raw chicken. She could've killed someone.

Jessica says that the team doesn't believe that she's confident. No one is willing to back that claim up. Danielle says that it's taking her a bit longer to grasp how to work the kitchen. Jacqueline says she was born to cook. Ramsay says she was born to cook pink chicken. "I should've thrown you out in the middle of service..."

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


DANIELLE. Three strikes... and she's out.

"Every dinner service, Danielle looked like a deer in headlights. And that's why she ended up as dead meat."
