13 Chefs Compete
September 29

Last week, on the crux of the worst opening service EVER at Hell's Kitchen, the chefs started the comeback trail with sushi from Iron Chef Morimoto. The road would end in a completed service for the Red Kitchen, sending Curtis back to the farm. Now 13 chefs remain.

And Vinny and Raj are having it out on the back his "suggestion" not to order sides because Raj's slow as all get out.

Meanwhile, Raj is still keeping a sunny disposition... whether the rest of the team like it or not.

Sleep arrives at 3 in the morning... but that's about to change thanks to a few of LA's finest paramedics checking them out. Why? To see if they are in any shape to cook.

CHALLENGE #3: Breakfast for Paramedics (Teamwork)

The teams must work together to serve 50 EMTs each, either an eggwhite omelette with wheat toast and turkey bacon or scrambled eggs with French toast and sausages. First team to serve their orders wins.

No one can be served unless they get the fruit salad out first. That means ... working together to put together a fruit salad. They have a bit of issue with that.

The women are hoping to build off of a successful dinner last night. The men... just want to get an order right. Thanks to Sabrina and Melissa, the red side has something to cheer about. The blue side... completely different story. And Raj DARES to talk to Ramsay about unseasoned eggs. Raj clears his head... in the fridge.

Needless to say the blue team is in complete freefall. The red team... is racing to the finish and an EASY win. It's so bad that they have to help the Blues finish.

Women get a lunch at Santa Monica... and a surprise. The men... are doomed to scrub.

The surprise.. the ladies are swinging on Trapeze School. While the women are hanging around, Raj is just... hanging. Much to the chagrin of his teammates. It comes to a head with Raj and Trev in the middle of punishment, that Boris has to come cool someone's jets.

The next day brings the next service. Time to prep. The men are looking to turn things around, while the women are looking for... Sabrina, who doesn't want to be a prep cook in HK, Girl, everyone has to start somewhere.

Gentlemen are 0-for-2. It's comeback night. Hopefully Raj can stay out of the fridge.

One person from each kitchen - Sabrina and Trev - will be making a palate-cleansing cocktail to serve with all dinners. James... OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!


Raj is on fish. He says that he's an excellent poissonier (fish cook). And yet he screws the first table. Jillian and Emily work together on the Red Side to get the apps first out... but they don't stay out in the dining room for long. Let this be a lesson... TASTE.

Sabrina and Trev are working their tails off getting cocktails out.

BOTH teams finally please Ramsay, and the Blues are moving onto entrees. Raj wants to finish a grilled salmon with sauce. a) The sauce sucks, and 2) grill means grilled.

Guests on both sides of the diner are getting antsy. Raj's second attempt at salmon... is raw. Some poissonier. Vinny is called in to sub out. One hour and 45 minutes into service, and both teams are on track to finish.

Nona has to double time it on garnish because of Emily. Boris is trying to save himself on Wellingtons... and yet because of him, the kitchen's held back. But because of Raj, none of it's going to waste.

Gail... is on fire. And asleep.

Two hours, and Gail's back in the game. Raj, on the other hand, is a little too eager. And because of that, they run out of Dover sole for the special. Raj.. begrudgingly goes into the dining room and tells the customers that they run out of the special. With him out of the way, the Blue Team picks it up.

Meanwhile, the Red Team finishes their second straight service. The Blues as well, but damn was that a shock. This is going to the customer cards.

And the Blues win it on that, 54% to 50% above average.

The women want to put Emily and ... Melissa? Afraid, but strong in prep. Sabrina? Weak in prep... and a bit of a brat.


The ladies nominate Emily (weak) and Sabrina (does jack during prep). Ramsay doesn't think Emily has the stamina, while Sabrina... basically throws the REST of her team under the bus, saying that she's here to learn and grow.

Leaving Hell's Kitchen tonight is.... RAJ!

"When the going gets tough in the kitchen, a chef puts his head down and cooks. All Raj wanted to do was put his head in the freezer, and that's why his stay in Hell's Kitchen was a short one."

The ladies get a gift, but all of the chefs aren't anywhere NEAR ready for LA Market. Will that change tomorrow? Find out in a moment, but first, we must pause 10 seconds for station identification... This is "Hell's Kitchen" on Fox.
