8 Chefs Compete

Last week, the cooks were charged with cooking out of a Fantasy Fountain-like apparatus. While that worked out well for the Reds, the Blues watched TWO members - Ray and Michael - go away, leaving the Reds with one seemingly simple decision: send someone to the Blues to even the numbers and hopefully light a spark under them. That... doesn't really go as planned. We pick up from that moment.

Ramsay wants the Reds to go back into the kitchen and actually pick one person to go to the Blues. "What do you think this is, a (^_^)ing game show?" Umm... yeah? Two minutes later, they decide... NEDRA will move over. The Blues... they're thinking sabotage. They couldn't get rid of her, so they did the next best thing.

SKILL DRILL #10: International Affair (creativity)

You'll be tested on your flair for the international with this challenge. You'll spin a wheel and choose who to go up against.

MARY vs. JON: Indian
NEDRA vs. JA'NEL: Thai
SUSAN vs. ZACH: Japanese
CINDY vs. ANTHONY: It's all Greek to you.

The proteins are in the kitchen. Your ingredients are on the tables in the dining room. You have 45 minutes to create the most amazing, stunning international dish.

Judging alongside Ramsay will be executive editor of Every Day with Rachael Ray, Dana Bowen.

MARY: Lamb with Garam Masala with Pureed Eggplant
JON: Tandoori Chicken with Honey Raita
WINNER: JON (Blues lead, 1-0)

NEDRA: Curry Broth with Deep Fried Calamari
JA'NEL: Steamed Halibut with Coconut Lemongrass Broth
WINNER: JA'NEL (Tied at 1)

CINDY: Chicken Roulade with Ouzo Salad
ANTHONY: Lamb with Plum Mint Sauce 
WINNER: CINDY (Reds lead, 2-1)

SUSAN: White Miso Dashi with Ahi Tuna
ZACH: Japanese Noodle Pan Seared Chicken
WINNER: SUSAN (Reds win, 3-1). Zach's dish was more Chinese than Japanese.

So the Reds are going shopping at Kitson with $2000 and lunch at Mr. Chow's, PLUS more gifts... All-Clad Cookware! The Blues are going to spend the day prepping, cleaning, cutting, and wine stocking ahead of service. And true to her word, Nedra is not going to "lift no damn wine cases."

Fifteen minutes until Hell's Kitchen opens... and Nedra's station is not done yet. Once she does, she lines up for the pre-game pep talk from the coach. Now that there are four people each, there's no place to hide. Step up and deliver.



In the dinner rush tonight, "Hawaii Five-0's" Kelly Hu. She's a red diner tonight. The Reds start... by mucking up risotto orders. The Blues have their first apps ready to go... and Nedra can't salt risotto for beans. And right now, the Blues don't see Nedra bringing anything to the team. Second time... lucky. Back in the Reds, the women are looking to work smarter and tighter. Scallops are over on one end and under on the other.

Second batch ... is okay for human consumption. Over in the Blues... Nedra isn't letting anyone get to her station. AT ALL. And it's creating a disarray and disorganization. Jon issues an ultimatum: get your crap together or he's taking over. Blues are coming to her aid, and apps are leaving the kitchen. Reds... also hit their stride, and they've moved onto entrees. The Blues... still fumbling over scallops... which are not seared. They can't even get past appetizers tonight, and the BLUES ARE BENCHED.

Over on the Reds, the VIP table... is blocked by Ja'nel's fish. And Ramsay's had it. The REDS are sent back, and it's a premature ending to a less-than-stellar service. Ramsay orders both teams to nominate ONE person to take the fall for the WORST SERVICE EVER.

The Reds are torn between Ja'Nel for tonight's service and Susan overall. The Blues make an easy choice, saying it's Nedra who made a mess of things. Zach? "Nedra... You're going up. Your ass is outta here."


Susan nominates... herself. The Blues (except Nedra) say that they've made a decision. The Blues (except Nedra) all think that Nedra should leave.

... and ultimately Ramsay agrees with them. Nedra, who held up the Blues and refused to admit to any of her mistakes,

Ramsay parts with some words about black jackets. If you want one, next service had better be PERFECT.

"Nedra wore a red jacket and a blue jacket. But after tonight's performance, I know that she wouldn't be wearing a black jacket."
