14 Chefs Compete
September 22

Last night... Disaster. Tonight... the comeback begins.

But first... a wake-up call... via taiko drums. And Raj's heavy breathing.

CHALLENGE #2: Sushi (attention to detail)

The challenge is to recreate a salmon cucumber avocado roll and tuna nigiri to the standards of a good friend of Chef Ramsay's, someone who has just received his first Michelin star, someone who's been on the pages of GSNN before, an international superstar...

My dear readers... I give you Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto!

Each player is given a Miyabi Morimoto sushi knife. The team that wins the challenge will keep them.

You'll work in teams of 2, with 10 on the clock to make nine pieces of sushi.

Melissa & Gail: 0
Nona & Jillian: 8
Emily & Sabrina: 7

Louis & Rob: 4
Russell & Raj: 4
Vinny & Boris need 7 to tie, 8 to win outright. They get... 8!

The men are going to San Francisco to taste wine at Cellar 360, while the ladies will stay in Hell's Kitchen and prepare sushi.

By the way, the winner will also be the spokesperson Rosemount wines.

Back in Hell, the ladies will dine on... well, whatever it is, Sabrina brought it back.

The next day, it's time for the comeback. Everyone has something to prove. Raj... more so than everyone else.

James' first night in Hell was... well, Hell... So Jillian & Vinny will assist them. OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!


Jillian delivers the first ticket... and tries not to be nervous.

Vinny, though... is lost.

And Raj... is completely blanking.

Gail's risotto... PERFECT. Sabrina's sushi is also perfect. The Red Team is off to a good start. Curtis's sushi... not so much a good start. His poor execution has resulted in one table being served by the blue side. Nona's cooking the fish perfectly, but the beef is raw.

Ninety minutes in, and Vinny has an idea... that James picks up on. James goes to Ramsay and... Vinny gon' git it.

Emily's hoping to bounce back on meat, while Boris thinks he needs to be the top guy. He'll be the first to get lopped off. Nearly two hours into service, the men have not served an app. The entrees are flying out of the Red side, though, except Melissa has a brain fart. She is asked to swap places with Jill. She solves the issues, and the reds are back in the groove.

Back on the Blue sushi counter, Curtis is dragging. Ramsay had enough of that. Curtis... and Raj... are sent to the dorms, while the rest of the blues... are sent to join them. And it gets drag out.

The Reds, though, finish their first service together as a team... Good job. Now shut it off and let's see who the men are going to send to the front of the line.


Boris and Trev calls up Raj (for throwing the team under the bus) and Boris (thinking that he's Superman). Because of his little stunt, Ramsay wants Vinny on the line as well. Entrees on the menu need to go with sides. Vinny says that he learned from that mistake. Raj says that he's being falsely accused. Boris is a team player.

Ramsay sends.... CURTIS home. He completely sunk the kitchen.

"Curtis might have been a good ol' boy, but unfortunately, he wasn't good at cooking."

Next time, the remaining 14 are still looking for a leader.
