12 Chefs Compete
June 22

Last time in the house that Ramsay built, it was all Blue Team, all the time, as they win both services (the Red Team also won the second), sending Jamie home. Then after the best service in the seventh series, Autumn and Scott, both nominated for elimination, were switched to their opposing teams.

The next day, the chefs are outfitted to catch their next assignment... literally. Welcome to the pig pen.

And Chef Ramsay's brought his favorite set of butchering knives. He's not going to use them, though. I betcha the pigs are breathing a sigh of relief. But here's the deal. On each pig there is a collar with an ingredient or a pork cut. They'll have to figure out some way to match the pigs that they end up catching. Pork is one of the most versatile ingredients out there, and Chef Ramsay is using the versatility to test the chefs' adaptability and creativity.

The end result is basically "Deliverance" in about five minutes. With pigs.

And now let's talk menus...

Nilka/Fran: Blood Sausage with Prune Puree. Scott's idea. A really bad one.
Benjamin/Ed: Pork Loin with Bok Choy
WINNER: BLUE (Blue lead, 1-0)

Holli/Siobhan: Fennel-Crusted Tenderloin with Apple Puree.
Jason/Autumn: Honey-Glazed Bacon with Honey Slaw... Honey overkill.
WINNER: RED (Tie game)

Salvatore/Jay: Latin-Rubbed Pork Chop with Pinto Beans.
Maria/Scott: Ham-Hock with Sweet Potato Soup.... The Ham-hock was supposed to be the main ingredient, not the garnish, so...

The Red Team is going to clean the pigs they just caught. The Blue Team are going to get dirty like pigs... at Glen Ivey Hot Spring Spa. And Autumn? Yeah, she'll fit in.

Back at the dorms, the chefs enjoy some down time as Salvatore gets his competitors to say things that would make anyone else blush. Welcome to American television.

A new day brings a new service, but first, a new test... Hell's Kitchen is going barbecue. That's a new menu to memorize. Baked beans, pulled pork, collard greens, and fried chicken... which is being fried FOUR HOURS EARLY. Nilka, what the hoo-hah?

An hour before dinner, we have a problem... a double seating. While one team cooks, the other will serve. Each teams has two hours. Got it? Good. Open Hell's Kitchen, barbecue flavor!


Smoked ribs, a Kobe beef burger, and crab hushpuppies are on the menu, as the Red Team takes to the kitchen first. And Maria's crab puppies start out raw. And a secret comes out... Salvatore can't write because he never went to school. Meanwhile, the Red Team is starting to crumble over the crab. That's basically the story of the night. That, and Fran scoring on apps. Entrees... well, they're getting HELPED back into the kitchen thanks to Autumn. Scott overfries chicken... and boom goes the dynamite. Last minute... and the burgers are the straw that broke the camel's back. SHUT IT DOWN!

Next up, the Blues take to the grills, while the Reds take orders. And they can't even do THAT right. The tickets are coming in slowly, but the chefs are moving quickly. Salvatore... needs to wake up. Maria... ALSO needs to wake up. She double-took one of Holli's tables. Autumn's ribs... Cold. All of the diners are receiving their apps... just not the ones they asked for. And... Maria's gon' git it. With 25 minutes left on the board, the team's moving quickly, but not carefully. Jason messes up at the fryolator... And now he's all head-scrambled and stuff. Meanwhile, one minute to go, and the entree Jason is frying takes three. That's TIME.

Now the question... Who had the better service? Did it even matter? No. But Ramsay sends the Reds up to nominate anyway... courtesy of Fran, the best of the worst tonight. Never mind picking, she just can't believe that the Reds lost AGAIN. Scott says that he put in an honest day's work... Maria didn't. Fran doesn't know about the guy, though, as he seems to not be the god of cooking he thinks he is.


Fran nominates Maria (unstable) and, in a shock, Nilka. Why not Scott? Well, he's a team player. Too bad. Ramsay wants his ass up on the block PRONTO, refuting Nilka's nomination. Maria says that she can do better. Scott says he has great leadership qualities and that he can learn technique.

Ramsay sends MARIA packing with a quite curt, "Now (^_^) off." Bad judgment call, Fran.

"Maria was in over her head. On garnish, she was lost, and her team paid the cost. That's why her life in Hell's Kitchen is dead."

A new day is coming, but first we must pause 10 seconds for station identification. This is "Hell's Kitchen" on Fox.
