12 Chefs Compete
May 7

Last week, the women thought they had it all... The skills to pay the bills, and the bills with which to garner the skills... Then dinner came and it all went to, ahem, Hell from there. The men didn't start strong, but they finished strong to give the women the Ramsay mouth beatdown. Jacqueline gets the worst of it before getting the hook.

Now in seasons past, Hell's Kitchen has hosted weddings, anniversaries, homecomings, proms, bar mitzvahs, reunions, and even a fashion show. Tonight, HK will host its very first... quinceañera. Glad you asked. A quinceañera is a young Mexican girl's 15th birthday, in which she celebrates her passage into womanhood. It's like a sweet 16, only twice as spoiled and one year early.

Yes, it's the party challenge week!

But first... embarrassing kiddie photos! Including one of Ramsay. Make that two.

SKILL DRILL #8: Quinceañera (tasting menu)

Meet Breanna... Hi, Breanna! Meet her mum Jennifer & her godmother Josette. They will direct the chefs in creating a tasting menu. She loves cheese, medium to well steak, chicken, fun appetizers, something that's spicy, but not too spicy, and... yeah, a lot of meat. Now you have 45 minutes to cook all of that. Winners go on the menu tonight.

Ja'Nel: Ceviche
Jon: Ceviche
WINNER: Jon (Blues lead, 1-0)

Cyndi: Fried Cheese Ravioli
Barret: Fried Mac & Cheese Balls
WINNER: Cyndi (Tied at 1)

Nedra: Grilled Shrimp Pasta
Ray: Three Cheese Ravioli
WINNER: Ray (Blues lead, 2-1).

Anthony: Grilled chicken with refried beans
Mary: Butterflied chicken with lemon cream sauce
WINNER: Mary (Tied at 2)

Amanda: Grilled Ribeye
Michael: RAW STEAK.
WINNER: Duh, Amanda! (Reds win, 3-2)

The Reds are going on their seventh reward... in America's first theme park, Knott's Berry Farm! Eff yeah! The Blues are going on their seventh punishment... decorating for the quinceañera under the guidance of Josette. And after that raw steak, I bet she has a few words.

Speaking of a few words, I just want to take this time to remind the ladies of an inconvenient truth... You are men and women now, but eventually, you're going to have to work with each other. And should one of you be so fortunate as to make it to the end? They're going to be working UNDER YOU. I'm not saying you should show a modicum of respect, but people tend to remember the crap they are being put through. The people you stepped on to get up you're going to meet on the way down.

Soapbox moment over.

Now that the dining room is decked out, it's time to prep for dinner. On the menu tonight, the five winning dishes from YESTERDAY.


DINNER SERVICE #9: Hell's Quinceañera

Amanda starts by breaking ahi tuna logs. That's the good stuff, this is the lady's 15th. It only happens once! Get it right, get it right, get it tight. Meanwhile, Ray is .. looking for something to do. Now that the top table is served, it's time for the rest of the guests. Nedra keeps the reds on tack, while Jon & Anthony are keeping things going on the blue side. They're done EARLY, believe it or not. With apps, by the way. Amanda's next logs of tuna... are ice cold. Amanda and Nedra are trading barbs as to who actually delivered that crap. And Josette is not happy. They need to waltz before the mains go out. What the hell, Red Team? JP's getting backed up, the diners are getting restless, and the Blue Team is just wondering what the blue hell is going to happen next!

Forget Ramsay, Josette's the acid-tongued firebrand tonight! And speaking of fire...

Now let's take a break from the cluster that is the Red Team to enjoy the quinceañera waltz.  Okay break time over. Time to fire entrees.

Blue Team is looking for potatoes... and linguine... And neither are going up. Second try up... and good. Barret bounces back, and the girl of honor approves. Now can Nedra on meat follow through? That would be a NO. Second try up... Ramsay calls her to the pass... to tell how good it is. He's un diablo.

Both teams are on their final tickets... and screwing them six ways from Sunday. Twice on Sunday. Speaking of twice, the two tables are still waiting on entrees. Blue Team finishes their ticket first...

... followed by two red raw red ribeyes. Slightly more cooked meat heads to the diners. And we're done. Happy bleeping birthday to you.

In the end... BOTH TEAMS lose, and BOTH TEAMS will nominate.

Jon says it should be Zach and Barret on the Red. The Reds nominate Amanda... but who will join them? Cyndi? Nedra?


Ray nominates Barret (performance with pasta) and Zach (held up entrees). Ja'nel nominates Amanda (appetizers) and Cyndi (raw ribeyes).

Cyndi admits to having her worst performance, but she cares. Amanda says she never gives up. Zach is passionate and believes and enjoys what he does. Barret also has passion and fight-back.

Ramsay... is done with AMANDA.

And he's NOT DONE YET. And what's this about a top secret VIP and a dinner service that is important to national security? Come back MONDAY and find out.
