Eight Chefs Compete
July 6

I can't do a quick synop without saying that Siobhan was basically the kitchen wench of the week on BOTH hours. Both teams had their way with her, and in the end, Ramsay had HIS way, sending her and Salvatore out of the door. Now eight remain.

Benjamin swears that Fran is next to go. Pay attention, this is relevant.

The next morning, Ramsay is serving up one of his dishes from one of his restaurants, Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's (C-Note: if you've watched season 3 of "The F Word" all the way through, you know where it is), Chicken Gorgonzola. The chefs shower it with compliments... BUT... it's actually a frozen meal. Which is BAD. Imagine all the crap that comes with processed frozen food. Preservatives. Sodium. Salmonella... Carcinogens, maybe. Point being, it's time for one of Ramsay's favorites... THE PALATE TEST.

First up, Fran (red) & Autumn (blue). Brussels sprouts, pork, and sweet potato... BAD. Autumn nails coconuts, while Fran misses. BLUE leads, 1-nil.

Next, Holli (red) vs. Ed (blue) on ricotta, chick pea, heart of palm, and trout... Holli tied it up with trout at 1.

Benjamin (red) vs. Jason (blue): fennel, kidney beans, butter lettuce, and mussels. All they get are fennels. Tied at 2.

Nilka (red) vs. Jay (blue): Kobe beef... BLANK. Cashews... BLANK... Cilantro... DOUBLE SCORE. Finally, EGGPLANT. Nilka... misses. Jay... NAILS IT! BLUE WINS, 3-2. As a reward, they're going to Sea World! Swim with the dolphins. Slap fives with the whales. Holla at the seals. Thank you, Stuart Scott. The Reds are going to take deliveries.

Ben checks the wine... which was supposed to go to Gordon Ramsay at the London... which is across town. Bad Ben. Special deliveries next... NOT TO BE OPENED until the winners returned. And inside them... a note that says that the next dinner service will be completely theirs. Each diner will choose a menu that each team will create, and they better be good. Apps, entrees, and desserts. Four of each.

While the Blues come together in the task, Nilka on the red looks like she would rather be anywhere else. And Ben... just won't shut the hell up.

Three hours, and Ramsay inspects the menus. Ramsay basically ripped Ben's menu to shreds. Holli's desserts... rock. Over to the Blue Team... TOO EASY.

That's what HE thinks, but what does Los Angeles think? Open Hell's Kitchen: VERSUS MODE!


With diners ordering from both menus, the kitchens must be in sync. That... doesn't happen right away. The Reds aren't even coming together as a team. The diners, though, are keeping the Blue Kitchen busy.

Holli's ahead of the rest of the pack, but if she does it again, she's outta here. Jay, same thing. He's not going to drag the rest of the crew. On the Reds, Fran's chickens suck. Autumn's pork sucks. She's sent to the dining room to apologize to the diners. Up close. Meanwhile, Nilka's asparagus aren't grilled. And Jason... he's just there.  So is the majority of the Red Team, who's not listening to Fran. Autumn's attitude stinks... and she's starting on desserts.

Meanwhile, Fran is about to get her ass handed to her.

Both kitchens are about to round out the night on desserts. And the diners are loving them. Job completed. Switch off... But all in all, not a pretty night. In the battle of Red vs. Blue. The winner... NO DAMN BODY. One person from each team gets nominated. Let's go.

The talk of the Blues: Autumn's pork. The talk of the Reds: Fran's communication. But it's not communication, it's execution.


The Blues put up Autumn, while the Reds put up Fran. Both chefs are a pain in Ramsay's ass and are out of their depth. BOTH chefs are ordered jackets off. Fran is going home. Autumn... is going BACK to the Red Team. One. Last. Chance.

"Fran wanted her team to communicate, but it seemed that the only thing her team agreed on was that they wanted her gone."

The fireworks are not over. Not by a longshot. You'll see why in a second, but first we must pause 10 seconds for station identification. This is "Hell's Kitchen" on Fox.
