Five Chefs Compete
July 20

Action continues in the house of horrors that Fox built, as the brigade returns for a new challenge...

... and we're going grocery shopping for it. Each chef will be given ten dollars to shop for ingredients to cook an impressive dish. They will then be judged on how much three gourmands would pay for it. Highest total wins.

Thirty minutes later, we have these...

JAY: Pita-encrusted Lamb with Greek Salad
JASON: Pan-seared Tilapia with Lemon Shrimp & Roasted Eggplant Ravioli
BEN: Seared Lamb Chip with Potatoes, Sauteed Spinach & Artichokes
AUTUMN: New England Broil Veal with Potatoes & Corn
HOLLI: Five-Spice Ahi Tuna with Parsnip Puree

The top two in this challenge, as decided by Patina Group owner, Joaquim Splichal, Savour Magazine deputy editor Dana Bowen, and the general manager of Gordon Ramsay At The London, Vern Lakusta.... Jay and Holli. Jay's dish would cost... $28.66. Holli's.. $29.66! Reward for her...  a night at the Peninsula in Beverly Hills and $1000 to spend at a kitchen store. Not only that, she gets to share it with somebody... she chooses ... Jay.

Punishment for the other three chefs... Quoting Jason Mraz... It's LAUNDRY DAY!

That night back in the dorms, Holli and Jay spend a tender moment in the hot tub... which is quickly ruined by Autumn's presence. And the story of Holli's tramp stamp and the fact that she has a child that lives with his father.

The next day, it's time to prep for dinner, but before we open the doors, Chef Ramsay has an announcement to make... tonight, the chefs will be switching stations, handing off communication while doing so.

(C-Note: the folks at my work could stand to learn a thing or three from this show.) OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!


As a reminder, Holli's ahi dish will be on the menu tonight.

Jason starts things off at fish... and he undercooks scallops. SWITCH! Jason tries his hand at meat... and the Beef Wellington is taken out of the oven too early, thinking that Holli didn't really finish the beef beforehand. She did. He didn't tell Ramsay about the delay...

Meanwhile, Ben continues the fish station's downward spiral with overcooked tuna. SWITCH! Jay's fish is refired, adding more insult to injury. Autumn, meanwhile, is climbing back up from the hole she dug herself in last episode. Doesn't help matters that when it comes time to SWITCH!, Jay doesn't make any effort to communicate to her.

Over at fish, Holli is usurped by Ben, while Ramsay tells him to stay at his station. Jason's fish is returned to the kitchen.

Ramsay steps out (which is completely innocuous when compared to the SFNE from last episode) and puts Scott (the guy who's been on all sorts of TV) in charge. Ben, thinking that he's still in charge, decides to take the pass... something Scott has done already, thank you very much. Needless to say... he's not appreciative of the help.


.... okay, maybe we were a little generous.

Ramsay returns and dinner is wrapped easy... BUT Ramsay's not impressed with the problems created by Jason (the fish), Jay (the fish), and Benjamin (taking over Scott's (^_^)ing place. The chefs go back to being just plain line cooks... and go back to decide which two amongst them is going up to the pass.

The group consensus: Autumn is emerging... Ben is crashing. And Jay .. he volunteers himself.


Holli nominates Ben (completely shut down and won't communicate)... and Jason (doesn't have the skills). Jason says his nomination was personal. Ben says he overthinks cooking but thinks that he's had a good service.

Ramsay sends... JASON packing, but with a word of advice to keep at it. "You haven't finished in this industry yet."

"Jason was good enough to make it to the final five, but he just didn't instill the confidence I needed to see to be my head chef."

Tomorrow, the chefs are going to be tested in a completely different way, and the honeymoon may be over for Holli and Jay.
