16 Chefs Compete Part 2
April 9

Palates were tested, and the ladies come up trumps again, but during a breakfast Dinner Service, Jeremy makes the faux pas to end all faux pas... and serves a sample plate that was an hour old. Still, it's enough to win the day for the boys. We continue from that day's elimination, when both nominees Jacqueline & Mary left to ponder whose dream is over after they are made to go back in line.

We continue from that point...

The person leaving Hell's Kitchen today.... ... JEREMY for mentally checking out.

"Men, you won today in SPITE of Jeremy. So your reward is me getting rid of him." The punishment... if one can call it that... is that on the back of today's breakfast, there is still a Dinner Service tonight.

Susan is hoping that the ladies swallow their pride and look forward. Nedra, on the other hand, is keeping her eye on Amanda for throwing her under the bus. Amanda is only friendly with her to the point where it gets the job done.

Now we go to prep for service, and Mary is actually worried about being late. As in... LATE late... She's had sickness. Her woman's period is late. So she took a test... never mind that it's only accurate after two weeks, but it's negative. Over with the Blues, Dan is trying to get his menu sorted, much to the dismay of his teammates.

After the prep, we get a short break, short enough for the guys to a) commend Mary on her fight-back and b) try and backbite the women who put her up in the first place. You know, they have a bit of a point. I mean, they threw you under the bus, and you're going to turn around and defend them? I'm beginning to question your intelligence, Mary. In the meantime, Nedra sticks up for their team... and Zach is ready to throw down. And you know they won't, because they throw to a commercial right beforehand. After 11 seasons, we know all of the production tricks. Time to get some new ones, ITV.

Right before service, Ramsay instructs the teams on the mire of damage control that the HK wait-staff, headed by JP, had to pull on account of the chefs' nonsense. To that end, Barret and Jessica will help them out with waiting table. They open the doors in 30 minutes... which is exactly how long it takes Barret to organize that THING on his head. You know, the Mohawk. Barret has been a waiter for 6 years. He knows how to do this, meaning, of course, he'll find a way to screw it up.



"The amount of mise en place here is extraordinary." That means that everything is in place. Now they're just waiting on orders... and of course, Jessica and Barrett's tickets are... well, they won't win any penmanship prizes. People want to say handwriting is a lost art? Not in Hell's Kitchen. Write that crap legibly.

The women are first out of the gate with their first checks. Susan was too focused on getting risottos out to focus on Amanda's scallops. Both are going up, though. Dan and Ray are on fish, and they get their first order... mixed up. The two can't work together to get a dish out to even start. Ray's first scallops are overcooked. Second batch... perfect. Reds still going at 90 miles an hour, even if the rest of the food isn't ready yet. Amanda's next scallops... are raw. Refire, please. ... and thank you. Service, please.

One hour into service, and the blues are almost finished with apps. Time for entrees. Ray and Dan argue about who gets to cook the fish for that table. The rest of the team just wants them to focus on the food. So does Ramsay. Because they don't... they deliver bass instead of halibut. Barret is TRYING to keep the diners well entertained, while Susan & Amanda's final apps go to the pass... and they're undercooked. Jessica is waiting on the order, and has no problem laughing about it. That's good. Because Ramsay has a problem with it.

Reds move onto entrees (which Nedra has to apologize for after killing the table on it), while Barret is doing some serious damage control. The meat station is on point. Ray on fish is once... twice... three times a loser. And now he's taking his entire team down with him.

Ramsay then goes to the Reds with an ultimatum: one more mistake and it's over.

.... and cue the mistake. Raw pork sends BOTH teams back up to the dorms to nominate while Ramsay and the sous chefs continue to cook.

The Reds make it an easy decision, while the Blues... well, Ray and Dan are calling each other little bitches over the station. Seems easy to me. And again, it looks like they're going to take it outside... but they don't.


Susan nominates Mary (raw pork) and Nedra (raw pork). Anthony nominates Dan (bad fish) and Ray (bad fish).

All four plead their case... Dan, while giving Zach the finger behind his back.....

Ramsay orders ALL FOUR to remove their jackets in something he's NEVER ever done in 150 episodes of Hell's Kitchen...
