Seven Chefs Compete
July 6

Resolved: Autumn's had her BEST performances in the kitchen on the red side... so now she's cooking there, but she has ONE more chance.

The next day, we're going to have a little Iron Chef competition. The theme ingredient... Live 10-pound lobster. Each chef has 45 minutes to cook a dish, and each team gets one lobster only. Seriously, not even Fox has enough for everyone.

Red decides to sit out Nilka's dish. And by that, Nilka decides to sit out Nilka's dish. Judging the dishes will be Michelin-starred chefs Josiah Citrin (Melisse), Michael Cimarusti (Provence), and David LeFevre (Water Grill).

Holli: Butter Poached Lobster with Fennel Salad
Ed: Lobster Tail Medallions with Ginger Puree
WINNER: ... HOLLI (Red lead, 1-0)

Autumn: Lobster Stir Fry
Jason: Lobster Tail with Saffron Polenta
WINNER: ... JASON (Tie game)

Ben: Poached Lobster with Sherry Vinaigrette
Jay: Lobster Knuckle with Black Truffle Cappuccino

Chef Ramsay will break the tie... in favor of Holli's dish. RED WINS! They're going to live it up with a caviar tasting and $1000 to spend HOWEVER THEY WANT. You don't want to lose a challenge, you didn't want to lose THIS one. The Blue Team will have to clean the dorms and prep both kitchens for service tonight. And they have to start on the Red side.

And at the reward, Autumn, true to form, overdoes it. At the punishment, the men are dressed like Motel 6.

The Blues have finished prepping the Red Kitchen... but they have NOT prepped their own. AT ALL. With 15 minutes to even start. And it gets even better... All of the teams are cooking IN the Red Kitchen (Jay TTBJs) as one team. AND they have 2.5 hours to serve the dinner because there's a show afterwards, and you know theatre... They NEVER let anyone in after the doors shut.

And Holli will serve caviar tableside as the winner of the last challenge.

That said, let's open Hell's Kitchen!


Nilka stats with raw scallops.

Half an hour into service, apps are coming out, and the first entrees are coming out. Nilka's turbot is raw. And the lobsters are taking time... And they're going BACK to the oven. And Nilka's going back into the back with Ramsay.

With 90 minutes inside the service, Nilka reenters the kitchen, hopefully calmed. Meanwhile, Ed's starting to flame out on garnish. Literally. Jason's trying to cook chicken, Wellington, duck, and beef... and they're all going out to the diners perfectly. Nilka's turbot... is giving her fits. That gives Ramsay fits... and when Ramsay gets fits, someone usually goes home.

That would be... Nilka. Ramsay wants her jacket. NOW. Nilka begs to differ. I mean literally. BEGS. Even to the point that she goes back into the kitchen and tries to cook something. Ramsay tells the brigade to follow his lead...

Meanwhile, the kitchen springs back to life with 30 minutes to go. With last tables coming, it looks like the chefs are going to make it.

Afterwards, Nilka finally faces her fate ... and Chef Ramsay with a waiting cab. In the end, cooler heads prevail, Ramsay thanks her for her service... and kindly asks two things: 1) she keep her head high, and 2) she take her jacket off.

Final time... 2:15. By and large, the best service in Hell's Kitchen. But still, someone's gotta go.

Jason wants Ed and Autumn. Ed says he fought back. Jay says bigger picture with Autumn. Ben and Autumn go with Ed and Jason. It's a tough call to make, but it's gotta be made, and it's gotta be made now.


Ed (slowed down service) and Autumn (weakest cook) are nominated. Ed gets called out for his asparagus flambé, while Autumn is called out for taking so darn long to come out of her shell...

Ramsay wants both jackets... so he can hand over the black ones! Welcome to the Final Six!

"Tonight was the best service we've had in Hell's Kitchen, and that's why I rewarded the Final Six. Now only the BEST chefs remain. Nilka was clearly out of her depth."

We have the chosen six. But who will be the chosen one? We're back in two weeks. Enjoy the All-Star Game!
