12 Chefs Compete
September 29

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 present.

Melissa: Chicken with pancetta
Vinny: Swiss chard, bacon, and mushroom
Winner: MELISSA (Reds lead, 1-0)

Rob: Shrimp mousse
Jillian: Eggplant
Winner: BOTH (Reds lead, 2-1)

Nona: Prosciutto and quail eggs
Russell: Ricotta
Winner: RUSSELL (Tie)

Emily: Duck Confit
Louis: Salmon Mousse Pine Nut
Winner: EMILY (Reds lead, 3-2)

Sabrina: Shrimp & oregano
Boris: Feta spinach
Winner: BORIS (Tie)

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 women.

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!


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 Kitchen tonight...

"Crystal.. Will you marry me?" And.... YES!

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 friend."

We're looking for a team still... Will we find it next time?
