7 Chefs Compete
June 6

Last week, the chefs were vying for a guaranteed spot in the final 6. With that would come a coveted black jacket. When we last left you, Jon was in the catbird seat waiting to hear how the challenge would mete out. On deck... Cyndi's Pan-Seared Halibut with Faux Succotash.

.... and it's NOT ENOUGH! JON IS THE WINNER! Props to Cyndi, though. That was an amazing dish.

Back at the dorm, Zach is still going on about that dish of his. Okay, we get it, you can cook. Now you need to ZIP IT.

The women are ready to act as a cohesive unit. Jon, Anthony, and Zach... not so much. Jon's going to work his damnedest to fire everyone up, even if they aren't really feeling it at the moment.

Oh yeah, by the way, Hell's Kitchen is open tonight. Time to bury what pride you have left and just get the food out. That means your dish, Zach. Get it out of your head, pick yourself up, and get to the here and now. The Reds... aren't missing Zach at all. Back in the Blue Kitchen, two people are doing the prepwork of 12. And it looks as if they're going to fall apart before they even start.

And true to the practice of Fox, the fire that was supposed to bring the kitchen to a stand-still during service? Didn't really happen in service. It's happening in prep. Right now. Woops. Oh yeah, and it's not fire. It's smoke. Thanks, Jon. Take a breath, bring it back. Don't suck.

Ramsay has invited special guests. In the Blue Kitchen, the Chefs Table will have Maria Menounos. On the Red Chef's Table... Jeremy Sisto. One "Extra" host. One "L&O" actor. The only way to have a successful service: cook with passion.

"Open Hell's Kitchen, please. Let's go!"


Also in the dining room, "Parks & Recreation's" Jim O'Heir. He dines with the common folk.

First to get plated are the VIP tables. And as soon as Anthony figures out what "out in one" means, we'll have something. He gets his scallops... OUT IN ONE. Thank you. Now for the rest of the diners.

The Reds... have issue with lobster tails. Mary and Cyndi need to speak to each other. They've adjusted and they're back in the groove. Jon... mucks up the seasoning on the risotto. The women want to make an impression on Jeremy and his guest. Instead, they're making a mess. Cyndi is dragging the kitchen on risottos. Meanwhile, Jeremy's table finally gets fed on apps. They're really good. Half of the apps are gone. The men are not far behind on their tables either. Anthony is a lobster tail short. The second tail... is overcooked. It should be like butter. Not like "buttered rope". Second time... lucky.

ENTREES! Zach is ready for meat. Anthony is ready for fish. Seems like he's overready, because he has his meat in the oven, when Anthony's fish is going up! Susan is cooking lamb. The last two times that ever happened ended HORRIBLY. And every time she's on the meat station, now that Fox reminds me. This time... ... IT'S A MIRACLE! Meanwhile, Zach has the same dish AND the same result. Entrees can't be moving quick enough out of the kitchen.

... then Ja'Nel cuts herself. MEDIC!

Blues are pushing entrees... and Anthony's halibut is raw. Anthony needs a Gordon Ramsay patented motivational kick in the ass. And this may be the night that Anthony overuses the phrase "abso(bleeping)lutely."

Ja'Nel is patched and back at her station, picking up where she left off with... whatever it is that was going on. Seems like she's gotten back into the game but her head is somewhere else. She does bounce back for the VIP entrees. Anthony is looking to do the same for his own. BINGO. But then Zach serves raw Wellingtons... and those were the last two "cooked". So he's gotta make more. Which will take 20 minutes, leaving Ramsay to do something he's NEVER done before... Bum off the Red Team. Embarrassing.

The Reds have completed their entrees and are going to desserts, which Susan is more than happy to serve. Way to be a creeper to actor man, Susan.

Now can the Blues complete their final two tables? Not if Zach doesn't fix his order. "I just want this nightmare, this service, to end." Any more antics like that and it will. Did we mention his lamb is overdone? Go home, Zach. You're drunk.

Yeah, Zach isn't going anywhere. Even though he should. Yeah, he should just go. Right now.

Stoves off. Clear down. RED WIN. One of THEM will be going to the Blue Team. One of the Blues... is going home. And it's up to Jon and Jon only to determine who.

Jon asks Zach what happened. Zach never answers the question, but does say he has the heart of a lion. Meanwhile, the Reds are having issue determining who gets to don a blue jacket. No one wants to deal with Zach. Ja'Nel steps up, saying it's going to be a motivator all the way around.

Meanwhile, Anthony gets grilled, saying that he will lead the charge if need be. Zach knows what he is doing, but Anthony has the better attitude. Anthony's willing to adapt. Six of one, Jon's got to make a decision.


Jon decides to put up... ANTHONY. Ramsay also wants to hear from Zach. So let's talk.

Anthony says he has shone and he'll only go higher. His heart separates him from Zach. Zach says he is determined with leadership and creativity. He says he's a fighter who loves people and loves food. But ultimately he can't give a direct response to anything.

Leaving tonight...

... is ...

... ANTHONY. Why? It's not just tonight's service, but he was on a spiral. Ramsay tells him NOT to give up looking for his place in the industry. Which is more than what most people have gotten up to this point.

We're not done yet, though... Have the Reds made a decision? They have... and Ja'Nel is going to the Blues. "I hope you don't follow in Nedra's footsteps."

"Anthony hobbled through Hell's Kitchen. Even though his leg got better, his cooking didn't."

Next week, someone's getting burned in Hell... and it could possibly be the devil himself.
