5 Chefs Compete
September 29

Last time, Christmas came early as the chefs received their black jackets. But teamwork still was a premium that the chefs didn't yet grasp, as Van, Suzanne, and Ariel were ejected from the kitchen after Chef Ramsay and sous-chef Scott, disgusted and appalled, left the restaurant to seemingly falter. That didn't happen, though, as Kevin, Dave, and Tennille finished the service. So who would fall by the wayside? It was Van's turn to say goodbye.

The chefs lick their wounds as Dave wonders about Tennille's nominations and, in his eyes, making him look dumb. Kevin's sitting back and watching people fall apart. Meanwhile, Suzanne is faced with the ever growing reality that the next time on the block might be her last.

The next morning brings on the next challenge... presentation. The task: make a dish that looks as good as it tastes. Judging will be the editorial staff of Bon Appetit Magazine and their editor-in-chief Barbara Fairchild.

Forty-five minutes... starting now!

Kevin: Caribbean Sea Bass with Orange & Papaya
Suzanne: Calamari Salad
Dave: Colorado Rack of Lamb with Fingerling Potato ("A pan-seared... red and yellow...")
Ariel: Prosciutto-Wrapped John Dory
Tennille: Asian-Inspired Red Snapper... which broke.

The judges will begin with the presentation and plating of the dishes. Top two will be tasted by Ramsay and Fairchild. Best tasting dish will win the challenge.

The two dishes that go to the judges are... Kevin's and Ariel's. And the one that tastes the best... is both of them! They can't pick a loser, so they both win! It's hard to split hairs over two dishes like those, so they are going to go to a Bon Appetit photo shoot at Shutters on the Beach. Both dishes will be featured in their next issue. As for the others, Hell's Kitchen has adopted a street. Now they're going to clean it. So while they look like they just spent the night in county, Ariel & Kevin look like a million bucks.

And Tennille? "This just ain't right!" No, it isn't.

And Dave's wrist has started swelling again. Something else has pulled. Kevin suggests that he has to think about himself first. Dave can see right through that mess.

Prep begins for the next service, and all hands are on deck... except for one. Dave's left. Kevin says that it's time to shine. Suzanne sees it as "patronizing."

Ramsay says that it comes down to one thing: determination. Complete service. Get on your section. Get it done perfectly. Can we do it? "Yes we can!" Alright Chef Obama... It's dinner time.

In addition to the usual fare at HK, the two winning dishes: the Prosciutto John Dory and the Caribbean Sea Bass, will be features.

The first ticket's in, and it's up to Dave on cold apps, Tennille on hot apps, and Suzanne on fish to deliver and set the pace. And ... no one's talking to each other. The first order is out, but more guests are pouring in, and with them, more tickets. Ariel tells Tennille that her risotto is mush. Tennille thinks it's okay. Ramsay says... overcooked. Told you. Suzanne on scallops... not any better. Dave's tuna is going out in a timely manner, and Ramsay is forced to send it without the rest of the order. Are they finally caught up? Nope, and it's all on the back of mushy rice prepared by Kevin. So, enough blame to go around here.

Risotto refired.... and Chef refired. That... is how you cook it. Now we're back up to speed. Let's go to entrees. And let's stop there... Pink chicken... it's not fit for human consumption. Next chicken... finally goes out. The fish, now, is raw. Thanks, Suzanne. The girls are just shooting blanks here.

And once again, Chef Ramsay is in a state of disbelief. Half of the diners have not yet been served their entrees. Ariel's killing the lamb, and Ramsay sends her out to the dining room to chide her for it.

In the end, the dinner service is finished, but like Chef Ramsay says... "Big deal." The crux of it is that nothing came together as it should've. No one came together as a team, so they'll have to do it now... and this time someone's going home for it. Suzanne thinks Ariel & Tennille should go up. She said her stuff was beautiful. Kevin begs to differ. Ariel picks him and Tennille.

At elimination, Ariel (inconsistencies) and Suzanne (raw fish) are put on the block. Suzanne thinks that she was focused on standard on food, but she didn't accomplish a thing. Ariel says that she believes that she's a better chef. Ramsay thinks they both should go...

... but Suzanne is told to hand in her whites. She's been given so many chances, and she hasn't lived up to expectations. Tennille dodged a bullet, though.

Here's hoping for a bounceback.

"Suzanne had a red jacket. She had a blue jacket. She had a black jacket. Now she has no jacket."

Next time, the playoffs start, and with it, hopefully the comeback.
