Six Chefs Compete
July 20

Last time, Nilka was sent packing in the middle of service, leaving only the final six to compete for the head chef position at Chef Ramsay's new spot in the UK. Ed, the teacher, Ben the prodigy, Autumn the unflushable, Holli the hottie, Jason the walking attitude problem, and Jay... the dude with blue hair.

The day after... the first individual challenge. This one is about the five forgotten points on Iron Chef: presentation. All six chefs are charged with making a dish that looks as good as it tastes. Judging will be a class of culinary students and friend of HK Tanya Steel of epicurious.com.

Thirty minutes to do so... Off you go!

The top two.... Ed (Pan-seared Striped Bass) and Benjamin (Pan-seared Halibut). Tanya will get to taste their dishes. And she decides.... BENJAMIN wins. The reward: he is getting a makeover, because his dish (and his mug) are going to be in Epicurious (with the recipe, so you can try it on your own time!). Apparently it's the only thing he WASN'T in. The others are going to learn MORE about presentation, because dinner is tomorrow night, and HK needs to be cooking.

The next day, sous-chef Scott, the one that's been on TV all the time, informs the chefs that the menu has changed. The lobster is gone, and in its place, the halibut that Ben made. Benjamin spends the better part of the day teaching the rest of the chefs how to make that dish.

Fastforward to tonight, where the chef's tables will return with special guest diners. No pressure... OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!


Ed starts out at fish, while Benjamin, who made the fish special, is on meat. Doesn't make sense to me, but oh well. Turns out the halibut is THE dish to have tonight, as everyone is asking for it. Jason is on garnish, making bland pasta. Autumn is trying to help Ben out with his station, but Ben ignores her. Ramsay sees it and tells him to listen to her. He responds as only Benjamin Knack would... by telling Autumn to get out of his way.

Then he drops chicken... and a plate of grilled poultry as well. So for those of you playing the home game, chicken does NOT fly. Needless to say, he needs to slow down and think before doing.

Ed is no better at cooking fish entrees as he was cooking fish starters. Repeated offenses may lead to his ouster back to the dorms, and now Jay is in danger because he has to refire all of the garnishes for every fish dish Ed undercooks. Benjamin decides that now's as good as any a time to get Ed to start cooking the fish properly. And then HOLLI has to come over to help. Three people on apps. Meanwhile, Ben's beef needs to be refired because he's helping ED!

Tonight's scallops are the straw that burned the Scotsman's back. As predicted a couple of paragraphs ago, Ed is getting the rush BACK to the dorms. And he's taking BENJAMIN with him.

The remaining four chefs predictably come together as a unified team when the VIP shows up... It's former Center Square Whoopi Goldberg! Her dinner (and the rest of the diners) proceeds without much incident, and the team goes from the best service in ages to... meh.

Ramsay's decision: group choice, two nominees for elimination.

Jay and Benjamin point out that Ramsay wanted the worst chefs overall, thinking that Autumn clearly fits the bill. Autumn wants to see ... anyone but her.


Autumn nominates herself, due to being on the block five times previous. Her second nomination: Ed. He's been overwhelmed. Ed says he's a great multitasker, while Autumn says that the team is out to get her. She's more consistent than her team leads him to believe.

Autumn... is getting ONE MORE FREAKING CHANCE. Ed turns in his jacket, having been on a downward spiral for too long.

"Ed was one of the favorites because of his strong start. Unfortunately in cooking it's not how you start, it's how you finish."

Ninety seconds, you'll see exactly what a talented chef can do with $10. Ten seconds, you'll see your local Fox station's calls. This is "Hell's Kitchen" on Fox.
