7 Chefs Compete
Last week, on the back of the WORST
KITCHEN SERVICE IN HELL'S KITCHEN HISTORY, ALL of the chefs were put on
notice. Except for Nedra. She was put out to pasture, leaving seven
chefs to compete for six black jackets.
The chefs return to the dorm to lick
their wounds. Meanwhile, the Reds are thinking about Nedra and how her
elimination was... a little more than suspect. Zach defends himself
saying that she wasn't really bringing it to the service. Oh, and then
he tells Mary to grow up and grow a pair.
The next day, Cyndi and Anthony volunteer
their services for an experiment that Ramsay is conducting in touch.
They'll have to touch sight unseen an ingredient. This ingredient... Raw
eggs. And Ramsay giggles. Because he can. Both chefs get it, followed by
polenta and oysters. Men win this one, 3-2. That... is not the
#11: The 11th Annual Dreaded Blind Taste Test (palate)
You know how this works. Because of uneven numbers, Zach will go twice.
ZACH: Scallions, Turkey... you jive turkey, Zucchini
Blue leads, 3-1
JA'NEL: Broccoli, Pistachio, Prune
Red leads, 4-3
CYNDI: Cheddar, Parsnip
JON: Cheddar, Duck
Red leads, 6-5
ZACH: Egg white
Red wins: 7-6
Here we go again. Red team wins a
challenge. They get lunch at Nobu Malibu, then go on a horseback ride.
Meanwhile, the guys are getting crapped
on AGAIN. Today is delivery day. Truckloads of supplies are on their way
to the former KCOP Studios Lot to be delivered.
Meanwhile, Anthony seems to be
underperforming on the delivery side, and Zach's done with him. Can he
brush that aside in order to finally get the Blues on the winning track?
The next day, Anthony just wants to get
into the kitchen and work his butt off... BUT Ramsay calls the chefs
down early to the Blue Kitchen. He reminds us that we are getting closer
to the BLACK JACKET phase. All seven want it but only a select few will
be able to wear it. That said... history is about to be made in Hell's
#12: Open Cook (creativity)
This is an individual challenge, even though the chefs are still split
into teams. You have 45 minutes to create whatever you want. The only
rule: make it stunning. The chef that blows Ramsay away the furthest
will be SAFE from the next elimination regardless of what happens to the
Jon processes by talking to himself. Wow,
Fox, you suggest that maybe it's a bad thing.
JA'NEL: Pan-Seared Duck Breast
ANTHONY: Seared Ribeye with Chili Powder
SUSAN: Raw Lamb. So much for third time lucky.
JON: Seared Mahi Mahi with Citrus Quinoa.... TAKEOVER!
MARY: Filet with Red Wine Sauce
ZACH: Surf & Turf
CYNDI: Pan-Seared Halibut with Goof on Succotash....
If Cyndi wins this dish, she's
automatically through to the next round. It's one amazing fish dish
versus the other. 1 vs. 2... Who takes it?
