Four Chefs Compete
July 2

Last week, Ben didn't get eliminated, but the way sous-chef Scott handed his butt to him, he might as well have. Meanwhile, a budding romance continued to blossom between Holli and Jay, Jason was eliminated on the back of a bad performance, and Autumn... well she's still here. But no one star is emerging as of yet. Will that change tonight?

Back at the dorm... it's the men versus the women in a supposed battle of the machismo...

That doesn't spill over to the next morning, as Chef Ramsay roasts a beautiful monkfish with roasted potatoes. Hope you're enjoying that. More importantly, we hope you're paying attention, because guess what, you're about to teach four bachelors with ZERO cooking experience how to make that same dish.

And you can only use verbal cues. And you have 30 minutes. Let's see what kind of damage you eight can do. And after watching the first five minutes of the challenge... I wish I didn't use the word "damage". Holli tries to reach her student by... being a bit of a tart. Jay... isn't that worried. Autumn says she's very verbal and that she can communicate well. Ben loves teaching new people, but the thing he has problems with is breaking it down into terms that a six-year-old can understand.

First: Autumn & her student Neil. They had a hard time butchering the monkfish. The taste is nice, but it's missing a great deal of the monkfish. Next, Jay & Rick. Presentation is superb. The fish is cooked perfectly. So far, they're the leaders. What about Benjamin & Steve? Peppers are almost raw, while the pancetta's burnt. Finally, Chris & Holli. Chris' fish is "made with love". Very much delicious. So it's Jay versus Holli. Who takes it? The winner... JAY & RICK!

The reward for Jay... he's going to have to wait for that. But he has a choice in the matter in who to take with him. And it's Holli.

The punishment for the others: sprucing up the place. It's maintenance day after all. And after that, prep because Hell's Kitchen is opening tonight.

The bachelors, meanwhile, get a copy of Ramsay's new book. 

Jay feels bad for Ben for having to leave him with Autumn for the day.

So where are Jay and Holli going for the day? How about a trip in the Goodyear blimp? Just for funsies, they take a ride over the studios that house Hell's Kitchen.

Half an hour before opening, Jay & Holli finally get ready to work, but they're not exactly welcomed as heroes. Ramsay's expecting everything to go as smooth as possible. He's still looking for his diamond in the rough. Meanwhile, he's going to do something he's NEVER done in Hell's Kitchen. He's going to allow the four chefs to determine their own destiny as to who works where. Apps, fish, garnish, meat. Play to your strengths. Holli takes fish. Autumn takes garnish. Ben takes meat, while Jay goes with apps.



And we start with zero gusto. Come on, people. Autumn starts by prematurely taking Holli's fish. Jay's ready with his first risotto. First it was underseasoned... now it's overseasoned. Holli's sauteed scallops... perfectly. Thanks to those two, diners are enjoying apps. A wave has started... But it can't last forever.

Jay's having no trouble getting food up... whether it's needed or not.

Forty five minutes in, and the dining room is moving smoothly. Benjamin ... is in his own little world. As usual. Ramsay is losing his patience with his silence. Autumn is ready with her garnish... but Ramsay's not ready to serve it. Twice.

Ninety minutes in, and Holli's problems in fish is slowing the kitchen. Autumn is having trouble holding it together. Ben's wellington is falling apart at the station... and so is he. Jay is stepping up his role as a leader. On the back of that, the kitchen starts coming together and acting like a team now. Food is flying out and staying out for the first time.

LAST TICKET! MAKE IT HAPPEN! And... DONE! Exactly what we're looking for. Clear down... get desserts ready.

And the check... and the reality check: someone still has to go home. Jay has the responsibility for making that happen. Ramsay warns that it's not going to be easy. He has to choose among his best friend, his girlfriend, and Autumn.

Autumn was easy. Ben says that he had perfect services, while Jay says that he doesn't respect Holli as a cook.


Jay nominates Autumn for having rough services and Ben for being "the greater of two evils." Benjamin says that he has experience and passion. He wants to pass that communication hurdle. Autumn fought through all of her obstacles, and she's capable of running the grill at the Savoy.

Ramsay says... AUTUMN ... is going back in line. Benjamin... is also going back to the line. He can't cut EITHER of them. Instead, he brings out a group of loved ones for each chef to spend some quality.

So on the back of the best performance this year, all four chefs will return next week. But that doesn't change the fact that Chef Ramsay can only and ultimately choose ONE.

"I decided to let all the chefs enjoy tonight's successful dinner service, but what they don't know is after the next dinner service, I'll be cutting the field in half."

Next week, it's the return of a Hell's Kitchen classic...
