8 Chefs Compete
September 8

Last time, it was all about taste as the women won the palate test on the strength of Andy's failure. It didn't get any better for him as he narrowly cost the men the win. Fortunately Van and Dave were on point and were able to deliver the W, sending the women to the firing line and Amanda out of Hell's Kitchen. Now only eight chefs remain.

Tennille says that Ramsay made a mistake in not sending Suzanne home. She knows she screwed it, and she's humbling himself to them. Ariel says that she has to start looking at the way she interacts with the team.

The next morning brings the next challenge... Crepes. Because Ramsay was trained, amongst many other places, in France, he knows a thing or two about crepes. To that end, we'll test creativity by making four crepes... Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert. Most points wins.

Twenty minutes... allez cuisine!

Suzanne has trouble making friends, while the men are having trouble making... crepes. With five minutes to go, no one has made a crepe that they're comfortable serving in front of Ramsay. But we plate and serve... Judging will be Ramsay and "Whistle Britches'" French palate (JP: "Belgian palate.")

Van: Bacon & Quail Eggs
Ariel: Smoked Salmon with Herbs & Honey.
Winner: ARIEL (Women lead, 1-0)

Tennille: Pepper Jack, Bacon & Shrimp with Black Bean Salsa
Andy: Ham & Cheese
Winner: ANDY (Tied, 1-1)

Kevin: Scallops, Crab & Goat Cheese
Suzanne: Filet & Onions with Quail Eggs
Winner: BOTH (Tied, 2-2)

Sabrina: Poached Pears & Chocolate Ganache
Dave: Cream Cheese & Mixed Berry (looks like a plate of diarrhea)
Winner: SABRINA (Women win, 3-2)

Tonight, we're going French in Hell's Kitchen. The men will be prepping both kitchens, while the ladies are going to one of LA's best French eateries, LA Cachette (under head chef Jean Francois Metegnier... you might remember him from the ill-fated Iron Chef USA in 2001).

While the men count their losses and prep frogs legs, the women get a surprise before lunch... a mime lesson. And while the ladies dine on Metegnier's genius, the men dine on cow tongue, baguettes, and headcheese.

The women hope to ride success into tonight's service, which will feature several new French dishes. Only a couple of hours remain to prep before Ramsay says those magic words, when all of a sudden... Andy has an accident, slicing off the tips of his fingers on a mandolin and having to go to medical to get stitches before service.

Now it's time to turn it up a notch. Ramsay wants success...

"Jean Philippe... Open Hell's Kitchen, please."

And the French makeover begins... while Andy returns for dinner service. The menu is on the fridge. Catch up, and get going. Dave says that he's going to help. And so far, he's not disappointing on apps. Sabrina, on the other hand... has to be compared to Dave. She gets it right eventually. Andy's on crepes... and he's not performing. Andy can't keep up, so Kevin has to come and help out. The ladies are starting on entrees, and Tennille is rarin' to go. Suzanne, on the other hand, is sinking the red team. She needs eight... or six.. or five minutes... or something. Andy needs help again... and Dave's getting pummeled because of it. He's only got one arm, but he's moving like a man with three. Dishes are flying out of the blue kitchen...

... and the red kitchen is suffering on the back of lamb that hasn't been rested before it was cut.

An hour and 40 minutes into service, Suzanne starts over on lamb, while Andy is literally drowning his sorrows in his salad. Andy blames it on his hand. Suzanne is finally ready with lamb on the other size... but she's misfiring on the orders. And Sabrina is sinking on frog's legs.

Diners on both sides are waiting for something to come out of the kitchen, while Andy isn't really doing much of anything. Ramsay ejects him from the kitchen. And as Suzanne overcooks lamb (again), Ramsay ejects both her and Sabrina for inconsistencies. He then reassigns Tennille and Ariel to finish up the service alongside sous-chef Heather. Over on the blues, they're working to pick up the slack left by Andy.

In the end, service is finished, but Ramsay refuses to name a winner, because both teams were incomplete. Service is declared a draw, and Ramsay sends the entire brigade to choose two people for elimination.

Andy says that he's been having dexterity problems all night, while Suzanne cops to lamb problems. Sounds like we have our two.  But does Suzanne really deserve to go home? Suzanne says that she's a team player, though her team begs to differ. She needs to go... but how do you do that? Sabrina refuses to be thrown under the bus for that.

At elimination, Suzanne (bringing the entire kitchen down) and Andy (inconsistencies) are stepping down. Suzanne says that she knows how to cook, but Ariel & Tennille say that they're better off without her. Andy, on the other hand, blames his inconsistencies on his left hand.

In the end, Andy is sent home.

But Ramsay is not finished, sending Sabrina down to join Suzanne. Ramsay wants the old Sabrina back. As for Suzanne... she's switched to the blue team.

"Andy has had good and bad moments in Hell's Kitchen. Unfortunately, most of them were bad."

Next time, Dave has been cooking with one hand, but he might hit a wall.
