15 Chefs Compete

Chef Ramsay wanted a completed dinner service, and he wasn't going to let a little thing like half the cast get in his way. Of the half that was ejected in the first service, Stacey was the first to pack her knives and hit the road. Now 15 chefs remain in the hunt to cook at Ramsay's new London restaurant at the Savoy.

The day begins at 5am. Chef Ramsay sends the players back to basics. He splits the group into pairs, and each pairs will have to cook four egg dishes: poached, boiled, scrambled and sunny side-up.

And you have five minutes. Starting NOW!

Nilka & Maria: PERFECT
Salvatore & Mikey: 2/4
Siobhan: ... after throwing Autumn under the bus and completely screwing the challenge... 1/4
Ed & Jay: 3/4
Fran & Autumn: 1/4
Scott & Andrew: 3/4
Jamie & Holli: PERFECT
Jason & Ben: 2/3 going into the soft-boiled egg... PERFECT soft-boil. MEN win, 11-10.

The men will be going on a helicopter tour of LA. The ladies will be going to prep... tuna. Clean it, gut it, filet it, get it ready for service tomorrow.

Siobhan heads up to the dorms in tears, while her teammates complain that she throws them under the bus. Meanwhile, it's a beautiful day to take a chopper over LA, capping the tour in lunch and champagne on a rooftop. Just don't break into a downfall. One rule outside HK: "(^_^) the "Chef". GORDON."

Now about the tuna... it's big. REALLY big. You need all seven chefs... and maybe Andi... to carry it from the truck outside into the restaurant. Top tip time: the skin comes off first.

And apparently Sal is a man-whore.

The next day, the teams rush to prep for tonight's service. There's one more addition: a tableside tuna tartare. Fran and Scott will handle that station. Salvatore... can't name the desserts on the menu. "If you don't know the menu by now, then you shouldn't be here," Ramsay says, right before tossing Sal out of the kitchen to refresh. Now let's get it started...

... and the water's too salty. It had to be as salty as the sea... not saltier.

"Jean-Philippe... Open Hell's Kitchen. Let's go."


Jay starts by getting Sal from upstairs. And he still can't name one freaking dessert. My mistake. He can name all four after some prodding. Mikey's risotto is undercooked. Autumn and Siobhan's... is having a hard time coming together. And out in the dining room, Fran needs a map of the kitchen to find her way around.

After 43 minutes, Mikey's first risotto makes it out of the kitchen... but then it comes back. Meanwhile, the Red kitchen has moved onto entrees, and Nilka is lost. She's not talking, trying to grasp the garnish.

Salvatore's Wellington comes to the pass... it's perfect, but the chicken is missing for the same table. And it's raw.

Ninety minutes, and Jason's chicken is stalling the kitchen, while the red team is hitting their stride.. Until Jamie's salmon is too crispy. No one is talking in the kitchen. A clear lack of communication. Andrew's communicating... with the garnishes. The mash ends up being... TOO goopy. Andrew tries to fix it... but it ends up with him in Ramsay's face in front of the diners. JP tells him that there are so many people that wishes he could be in his shoes. Andrew takes OFF his shoes, says "Have'em", and leaves in the middle of service. Both teams end up finishing the service without him. Switch everything off, let's clear down.

At the wrap-up, Ramsay calls out Mikey, Nilka, Jamie, and Jason for their many mistakes... NO winner. Consensus from both teams, one from each will go to the pass.

The guys seem like they're intimidated to work with Jason. He says that Salvatore should go home. Mikey... agrees.

The ladies seem fixated on Nilka, having been lost in the garnishes. But then it turns to Autumn, thanks to Maria.


The women nominate Autumn on the back of the salty water, not being a team player, and basically being over everyone. The men choose Jason on the back of the chicken.

Autumn says she has the skills and the talent. She thinks that the team put her up due to personal reasons. Ramsay wants to know who the worst cook on the team is. The ladies... say JAMIE. Jamie says that she has so much heart. Jason says that he keeps pushing.

Ramsay ends up sending... MIKEY home. He backed his team up for TWO services running, and he can't work with that.

"Mikey was all about appearances. Unfortunately for him, it didn't appear he could cook."

The question now... is there a head chef amongst them?
