12 Chefs Compete
Last night... the men won service, but Raj was completely out of his depth,
resulting in his dismissal.
The Blues are uniting under a new ray of light... a ray without Raj. Meanwhile,
the Reds are a team divided with Sabrina in the way.
CHALLENGE #4: Ravioli (innovation)
Before the challenge, Ramsay challenges
the chefs to go 48 hours without smoking.
The chefs will take something plain like
ravioli and turn it into something creative. They have 30 minutes to do
so, and they will taste each other's dishes and determine which to
Melissa: Chicken with pancetta

Trev: Duck and arugla
Gail: Shortribs and tomato
Winner: by a season... TREV (MEN win, 4-3)
Tomorrow, there will be Italian night,
and Vinny's ravioli will head up the menu. The women will prep pasta and
mozzarella. The men will take a helicopter to lunch.
And the mozzarella is going to be
fresh... as in direct from the udder. And surprise surprise, Sabrina is
not interested in doing... well, anything.
At the reward, the guys try their hand at
golf... and suck at it. Oh well, it's all about the journey after all.
Meanwhile, Trev talks to the team about being "a Debbie Downer". All he
wants is a chance at it, and now he's got trouble enjoying the reward.
Hopefully they'll have a chance to regroup tomorrow.
And so much for the 48-hour challenge, as
a few people, Trev included, indulge in a puffer while getting cozy with
The chefs are prepping a brand new menus,
but not all of the recipes have been mastered.
Tonight is Italian cuisine. We're going
to load it up and fire with both bullets. OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!
DINNER SERVICE #4
Tonight's menu has grilled pork chops,
chicken parmagiana, and shrimp scampi.
Russell puts the blues on a strong start.
Melissa.... ravioli's underdone.
Meanwhile, Table 24 is wondering if
tonight will be the night that he pops the question. And Louie's salmon
is an "I DON'T".
And Melissa can't multiply 3 and 3.
That's 9. Still better than Louis, who can't count to 2. One hour into
service, and nothing's coming out of the kitchen in terms of entrees.
Sabrina hopes to change that... and yet she can't cook a pork chop.
It's 7:45, and the kitchen is at a
standstill. The team rallies behind the station to catch up. Melissa
shepherds that attempt. The Blues are back on track with entrees... but
not all of it is being met with positive reviews. Rob's forced to eat
his mistakes at the bar.
The Reds are trying to get in sync.
Sabrina and Gail are out of sync with each other. Gail's spaghetti is
crunchy. The Blues may break up a marriage before it even begins. And
Louis is getting a little bit sloppy with the pork chop...
Boris finds time to wash the dishes...
and Ramsay makes him wash with the crew. And after a raw parm... Louis
and Boris are tossed. The rest of the team pick it up on Vinny's energy.
And the VIP table... FINALLY gets their plates.
Both sides are close to finish, pulling
it together. The Reds finish... and help the Blues finish. That...
doesn't happen. Ramsay, Scott, and Andi finish the service...
But not everyone is a loser in Hell's
"Crystal.. Will you marry me?" And....
Nominations from both teams.
Sabrina suggests Melissa and Gail after
they save her butt on the station. At the blues, Rob was thrown out
because of food. Boris was washing dishes. And Sabrina... she's dead
weight. Melissa and Gail agree and try to sway the team... which leads
to the mother of all meltdowns right before...
Nona calls Melissa ("Being yelled at a lot")
and... Gail... NO, it's Sabrina (dead weight). Trev calls Louis (sunk on meat)
and Boris (washing dishes).
Louis says that he's a soldier and a team player.
Boris thinks that he's a team player. Melissa said that she carried the team.
Sabrina ... is being Sabrina.
Melissa... Back in line. Boris... back in line.
Leaving Hell's Kitchen tonight is.... LOUIS.
"Louis the camp cook dreamed of fine dining, but
the only thing I would trust him with is toasting a marshmallow. Kumbaya, my
We're looking for a team still... Will we find it
