6 Chefs Compete
June 13

Last week, Jon found himself one step closer to the Black Jacket when he won a snap challenge. But VIP night was anything but a star-studded affair for the Blues, as they lose. AGAIN. Anthony, having peaked early, ends up turning in his jacket, and we're down to half a dozen in the house that Ramsay built. Meanwhile, Ja'Nel has elected to switch jackets and cook in the Blue Kitchen. Could this be of ANY help? ANY HELP? The Blues seem to think so.

The next day...

SKILL DRILL #13: Final Team Challenge (Communication Relay)

Ramsay introduces his friends, Chef Jon & Chef Owen. Not only are they chefs, they're also jugglers. The point: be in sync. And don't get your hair cut... Gordon.

It's truth time. Owen & Jon are not chefs. They are... THE PASSING ZONE from "America's Got Talent" season 1!

As a team, you'll have to cook three entrees from the menu, BUT you will only have one person in the kitchen at a time. You have 30 minutes to cook a roasted chicken, rack of lamb, and halibut. It's a relay race!

During the course of the challenge, Ramsay ends up putting out Ja'Nel's fire. Literally. Almost gets splashed with.... water. You done did it to me again, Fox! Meanwhile, Jon's dropping chickens. Oops. And Zach... likes to talk over other people. Meanwhile, Cyndi's halibut is... burned. Susan forgets to sear chicken, and Mary and Jon are batting cleanup.

And the Reds lost one plate already. There's nothing there. Meanwhile, the Blues' lamb.. is raw.

RED: Messy lamb, bitter kale
BLUE: Raw lamb, Perfect garnish

RED: Bits of chicken.
BLUE: Perfect chicken.
WINNER: BLUE (Blue leads, 1-0)

RED: Burned fish
BLUE: Perfect fish
WINNER: BLUE (Blue wins, 2-0)

FINALLY. The reward, a tour of LA via helicopter. After that, a trip to the Gillette Ranch to down some $20,000 caviar. The Reds, though... are prepping potatoes and onions for the LA Rescue Mission. Meanwhile, they'll also prep for tonight's service.

Damn that's a lot of potatoes!

At HK, Cyndi has to have a sitdown... and she falls short of breath. MEDIC! We have a tightened chest on that front. We'll check in later.

Meanwhile, let's go have some caviar.

Back to Cyndi... it was diagnosed as an asthma attack. Well it's better than the alternative.

Everyone's back in chef's whites, and Ja'Nel is getting briefed on how people tend to shut down on station. This is the most important service up to this point. Survive tonight, and Ramsay's got a black jacket waiting for you. With your name on it!

"Open Hell's Kitchen, please."

DINNER SERVICE #14: Fully Booked

HK is fully booked. Over 500 guests were turned away tonight. THANKS.

First tickets are in. And over the course of apps, Zach looks like he's about to be flustered. Luckily he has the right amounts of Wellies in the oven this time. Their apps are out in the dining room to raves. Meanwhile on the Reds... it's game on. The apps are jetting out to diners there as well. We're pushing forward on both ends. That's what we like to see.

... and then Zach's lamb catches fire. Eep. Jon and Ja'Nel, on the other hand, out like gangbusters. Meanwhile, Cyndi is too early with fish.

Final apps are leaving the Blue Kitchen, and it's time to move to entrees. Zach, please don't screw up. Reds... same thing, pushing out a final app. And Cyndi's lobster tail is flying out of the kitchen... hitting a wall and bouncing off of it. Let's hope Cyndi does the game thing. Second tail.. is RAW. Time for a group conference/ass-whuppin'/come to Jesus meeting.

Back in the Blues... the first entrees once Zach decides to get his head out of his ass. He's either focused, or he's in space. Zach tries to get in sync with his team, while the Reds deliver more entrees. Zach may have finally found his groove... until Zach messes up an order of lamb, and true to his word, Ramsay comes down on him like a ton of bricks. Next try... FINALLY. Geez, took you so long.

FINAL TICKET, BLUE! FINAL TICKET RED... and RED finishes first. BLUE... finishes. Let's call that a victory in and of itself. EVERYONE fights back, and that's what Ramsay wants.

And in the end, he rewards BOTH teams with wins, BUT on the back of that, Ramsay will only be giving out FOUR black jackets. Each team will have to pick one person to eliminate. Everyone cooked hard, now everyone will have to argue even harder.


Ja'Nel nominates Zach (breakdown in communications). Cyndi nominates... herself (should know better from experience), but SHE thinks Mary should go up. Mary thinks... that SUSAN is the weakest. Susan thinks that Cyndi is the weakest. And such is the circle of suck.

Ja'Nel nominates for the Reds.... SUSAN.

Zach says he is a team player and is the whole package. He thinks he deserves a second chance. Susan says she knows how to fight.

Leaving tonight...

... is ...

... "Sorry, ZACH. Give me your jacket."

As for Susan... She's not done tonight.

Tomorrow, there is one more task before Ramsay hands out black jackets. As for Zach...

"There once was a chef named Zach.
The words he didn't lack.
But in the kitchen,
He was no magician,
And he won't be coming back."

And then... there were five.
