Nine Chefs Compete
June 29

The brigade had a good service albeit for the ineptitude of three chefs, one of them a non-issue now. The other two, though, are having it out in the dorms, as Siobhan strives to prove herself to Benjamin. Or, to use her words, "cook his ass under the table."

The next day, the chefs get ready to go French... dip, that is. The brigade head to Philippe's in Los Angeles, one of the city's oldest restaurants, over 100 years young. If you know what a French dip is, basically, it's a hard roll dipped in the jus of beef. Kinda started by accident, but in the end, it's really good.

Now the chefs have to improve upon it by making their OWN gourmet sandwich in 30 minutes. The Reds will have to sit out the "worst" sandwiches... Siobhan begrudgingly accepts it.

Ed: Grilled Ahi Openface
Ben: Ahi with Watercress on Ciabatta

Jason: Lobster coleslaw sloppy joe
Holli: Smoked duck on pumpernickel
WINNER: ... TIE! (2-2)

Jay: Country pork pate with Vietnamese slaw and romaine hearts.
Fran: Balsamic chicken... on soggy bread.
WINNER: JAY (Blue lead, 3-2)

Autumn: Roasted pork loin with balsamic reduction
Nilka: Roasted pork with Arugula and truffle mayonnaise
WINNER: NILKA (Tied at 3)

The tiebreaker... is Siobhan's sandwich. Ahi tuna on "challah" with San Andreas cheese. Chef Ramsay notes that Siobhan's sandwich should've gone up against Jay's. Winner... BLUE! The Reds are going to make homemade peanut butter and jam sandwiches for an amuse-bouche. The Blues... are going to California wine country. The bad news: it's a four hour drive. The good news, we've got a private jet.

And apparently the entire team is up against that one.

On the reward, the Blue Team really don't get the concept of a wine tasting. It's a "tasting". You don't drink it like it's Kool-Aid. Autumn learns that the hard way and gets herself and the team a little ... I believe the phrase is "tore up." And Holli... gets Ed a little MORE tore up. Goodbye quiet reserved Ed.. Hello ... Little Ed.

The next day, the Reds are ready to go. The Blues... are a little over hung. And Scott is a little pissed... and not in the good way. The Blues are lagging on prep because the team "overindulged". They seared the halibut immediately... though halibut is not on the menu. For better or worse... it's dinner time. OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!


First order comes in, Fran's first risotto.... ever. And it's good. The Blues' first starters are slow-going and less in sync than in previous service. Ramsay sends forth the motivational rear-end. Perhaps he should send one over to Fran as well as she goes back to a crap risotto. The blue apps are going out, while Ramsay wants to push out entrees. Which means that Autumn needs to pick it up. Over in the Reds, Siobhan's scallops are not even CLOSE to fine... And now, she's gone to EAT her mistakes.

She reenters the kitchen as Ben takes over for fish. And pushes Siobhan to the wayside. Meanwhile, one customer decides to take matters into his own hands and go have a word with Ramsay. BIG MISTAKE.

Nilka's chicken is raw... Autumn's still working at a snail's pace against the rest of the grain. Jay's duck is raw... And the whole of the Blue Team is sent to the showers.

... and so is the Red Team. No winners tonight, folks. At least everyone cops to their mistakes. But two of each are going to take it on the chin for them.

Blues begrudgingly decide on Autumn and Ed. Reds are a little more... "I pick Siobhan." Okay, never mind. Nilka wants Fran gone. Fran wants Nilka gone. Ben wants Siobhan gone. Siobhan... doesn't really know what she wants.


Autumn (garnishes were late), Ed (raw duck), Siobhan (out of her depth), and... Fran (disorganized) are all sent to face the devil. Ed was rushing things. Autumn was the weakest... but she can come back. Fran has spent more time at elimination than in the kitchen. Siobhan allowed to get herself kicked off the section.

That ultimately costs her. She's got far too little experience to roll with the pack.

"Siobhan got pushed around a lot in Hell's Kitchen. So it was up to me to finally push her out."

We're down to the top half of this year in Hell's Kitchen. Which means that it's time to start the final push toward greatness.
