7 Chefs Compete
November 10

Russell's still steamed about his almost being eliminated, but I betcha if Ramsay had his way... well, he'd be surrounded by a gaggle of beautiful women... and Sabrina.

Trev says that Russ is throwing a tantrum like a kid. The women... are STILL on a high. The men.. "inconceivable!" Not so much. Ramsay is concerned with something on BOTH sides...

CHALLENGE #10: Relay Race (communication/timing)

As a team, they will have 30 minutes to cook three entrees off of the HK. Each teammate will cook five minutes at a time. The dishes:

- Tagliatelle Pasta with Mushroom
- Poached Chicken with Green Beans
- Salmon with Lobster Ragout

With 20 minutes left... Vinny has started plating... and he has not yet started lobster. And neither has Trev. Vinny FINALLY sees the lobster with, what, FIVE minutes left?

Five seconds on the red side... the blue side finally cooks the lobster ragout, while Jillian... drops the salmon. BOOO... That's one to the men.

Tagliatelle.... Blue side is bland. Red is slightly perfect. Tie game.

Chicken and gnocchi cooked properly. Beans, no. Same issue on both sides.

Did we mention HK 9 was casting?

... okay, the winners... THE MEN, 2-1! They're going to Sur La Table, then to Melisse for lunch. The ladies are going to process the deliveries.

At Sur La Table... let's just say it's like letting Edward Cullen into a blood bank filled with angsty hot phlebotomists. At HK, Sabrina and Jillian talk about how Gail screwed the pooch. And while the men experience "The Pursuit of Excellence".

Once the men get back, souschef Scott, aka the right hand of God, receives word from Ramsay that the menu for the next service is now YOURS. It's red menu versus blue menu. Each team will come up with four apps, four mains, and four desserts.

And what the hell is up with Sabrina and lentils?

With the menus finalized, the chefs call it a night... while Vinny and Trev take a drink in the spa... with Russell listening.

The next morning, both brigades are starting from scratch... sober or no. Russell promises to "break somebody off something real proper-like".

Remember... your menu... Ramsay's standards. OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!


The Red Menu features...
- Wild Mushroom Risotto
- Vanilla Poached Lobster
- New York Strip

The Blue Menu features...
- Ricotta Ravioli
- Roasted Sea Bass with Fingerling Potatoes
- Grilled Lamb Chops

Red Team gets started. Blue Team continues to wait. Melisse's Chef Josiah Citrin is the first to order from the Blue Menu... and they better not muck this up. Nona now has the apps under control as the blues finally get an order in.

Next up, entrees... and Vinny's checked out. That's not good. Six minutes for Josiah Citrin's lamb. That's VERY BAD. And after six minutes, it's STILL NOT READY. THAT IS HORRIBLE. And Josiah's watching the ensuing chaos... ensue. Thanks to Russell, Chef Citrin finally gets his lamb. Gail's first lobster capellini... is undercooked... then overcooked... lather rinse repeat.

Red Diners are going hungry. Blue Diners... are happy... well, some of them. Citrin's lamb is "horrible." Sabrina's strip... PERFECT. Two hours into service, and entrees are leaving the red kitchen. Vinny gets another chance on fish.... well, so much for that.

Gail is under pressure to deliver a lobster capellini... and seventh time is NOT a charm. Not even close. Gail's headed to the showers.

Both teams finish service, but damn was it hard. And Ramsay just says it... "I am not happy." Tomorrow, there will be only one team, but one person out of the seven will not join them. They will have the rare opportunity to nominate ANYONE.


The votes...

Russell: VINNY

... and the ladies all gun for TREV. Take off your jacket... Have a black one instead. Joining him... Jillian, Nona, Russell, and Sabrina. That leaves Gail and Vinny...

Vinny is on the decline. Gail is an asset to her team... Who gets the jacket, and who gets the shaft?

GAIL... gets the black jacket! Vinny goes home.

"When the competition first started, I thought Vinny was the one to beat. But after tonight's dismal performance, he's now the one to go home."

Six become one next time... but will they truly be a team?
