4 Chefs Compete
October 6

Last time, the chefs completed a service, but it didn't matter at all as they broke down and Suzanne ended up paying the ultimate price for it. Now four chefs remain and the competition's about to reach a boiling point.

The final four rest as they struggle to come to terms with their position.

A new day brings their next challenge, but not before Dave gives a motivational pep talk to himself. Next out to give a motivational kick in the rear to the rest of the team... Little Ramsay. No, seriously.

After the genuine article arrives, we get the challenge underway. The chefs are to cook a stunning vegetarian dish... for 80 exacting, difficult, demanding customers.

One dish... 80 portions... one hour... from now.

Kevin: Asian-style mushroom crepe with beet carpaccio
Tennille: Vegetable-stuff eggplant with rice
Ariel: Grilled eggplant lasagna
Dave: polenta tower with roasted vegetables

Dave has a momentary lapse of pain in his arm before returning from the back. As the clock ticks, none of the chefs have plated 80 servings. And the customers? They're already here... eighty kids, none of which like vegetables. They will vote for their favorite dish, but there aren't enough servings to go around. And apparently... they want food.

After Ramsay gives his guests a goodie bag (some of which is unloaded in the dining room), we have the results... and 40% thought that Kevin's dish was the least favorite. The two best: Dave and Tennille. And the winner of this challenge, with 55% of the vote... Tennille. As a prize, Tennille is heading to a day of pampering in LA to prep for a lunch with Ramsay at Nobu Los Angeles.

The losers... prepare to scrub down the dining room. That includes gum from underneath the tables. Dave takes an opportunity to pocket a few treats for later.

At Nobu, Ramsay and Tennille are served sushi from world-famous sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Tennille also gets a set of knives by JA Henckels designed by the man, the myth, the legend... the original Iron Chef Rokusaburo Michiba.

Now that the cleaning's done, we're prepping for the next service. Tennille returns, but she's got to get ready to come back down because we're about to open...

"Jean Philippe... Open Hell's Kitchen, let's go!"

Kevin starts with appetizers, and they're quickly on their way. Each chef is moving at a record pace, and perfection is key, but Tennille starts to falter in scallops. Half an hour into service, all the apps are served. Now to entrees. We start prepped, now it's all about follow-through. But Dave's arm starts to give way. Ramsay tells him to see medical, because Dave was about to faint. After getting cleared to come back, he delivers the first entree. They could set a speed record for completing service if they keep up the pace...

... something Tennille has a problem with on fish. That stalls the entire kitchen. All of the chefs have to start over on their entrees. Tennille tells the chefs two minutes to the window... while Tennille tells Ramsay six minutes... And we're back in the utility room again. She's not giving up. She's a fighter. Let's fight it. She finally cooks a fish that is servable. Now the rest of the chefs have to follow suit. They do so and complete up the service.

Ramsay wastes no time in calling out Dave's pain, wondering if he can indeed continue. Dave says that he feels fine and he doesn't want to go home on the back of his wrist. Then he wastes even less time in telling Tennille to hand in her jacket. He doesn't want to prolong her agony. She's hailed as a comeback kid with a lot of heart and a lot of fight back.

Before the chefs can settle in for the night, though, Dave gets a call from Ramsay telling him to bring the chefs back to the dining room.

First of all, he says that he was not sure that Dave was meant to continue in the competition... but now he's sure that he was. Then he brings forth some loved ones from home.... each of the chefs' families get some quality time before we retire for the evening.

Next time, the final three become two... and those two become one.
