6 Chefs Compete
Dropping the salmon in the kitchen
is usually a bad idea. Especially if there is a challenge to be won. That's what
gets the guys their first reward in a while. If only dinner service was that
rewarding. The remaining chefs get the black jacket, but Vinny's jacket gets
But back to the Final Six. Trev says
that he's going to sleep with one eye open. But first, a little to celebrate.
... except for Trev, who's looking
to try and rub out the four chicks in black before they can do a number on him.
CHALLENGE #11: Amuse Bouche (presentation/taste)
Each chef will create a unique amuse
bouche, to be judged by chefs Ludo Lefebvre, Quinn & Karen Hatfield,
Suzanne Tracht, and Michael Cimarusti, a lot of Michelin stars amongst
them. They'll be judging on presentation and taste.
They have 30 minutes to create FIVE
imaginative portions. Let your mind run wild.
Maximum score is 100 (50 presentation/50
Gail: Sesame Chicken Spring Roll. (44/43)
Sabrina: French Bread with Salmon. (35/35) 70
Jillian: Grilled Pita with Lemon-Dill Sauce and Vegetables. (32/33) 65
Nona: Shrimp & Grits. (34/33) 67
Russell: Hamachi Crudo. (50/50) PERFECT 100!
Should we even bother with Trev's?
Trev: Parboiled Frog's Legs (31/31) 62
And Russell wins in a WALK. He's going to
LA Market for a tour. The tour is led by your possible boss, Chef Kerry
Simon. And there's lunch for four. You, Ramsay, Simon... and Gail,
because Russell thinks that coming in second is honorable.
The others are going to clean the
quarters AND prep the kitchen.
But first, Gail and Russell get a sneak
peek at what life after Hell may be like. The rest of the chefs are
getting a taste of what life... IN Hell is like. Trev... is still
swallowing a bitter pill. Russell and Gail return to complete the prep
and get the briefing. One of them will also be doing a Steak Diane
tableside. That person is.. NONA.
But first, here's a look at what you're
playing for aside from the market. This is your salary for the year...
That's a lot of lettuce. The question
now... WHO'S HUNGRY? OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!
DINNER SERVICE #11
Tonight there will be a tableside Steak
Diane. And the entire dining room will be fed by one kitchen.
And we start off with flaky risotto. Undercooked
scallops.. Fire... Overcooked lobster spaghetti... One hot headed Trev... And
that's on the first table. Once they get it out to the diner, though, they hope
momentum continues. All you need is Sabrina and Trev to start talking to each
other so they can move the apps section. Ramsay can't get the apps out, so he's
moving onto entrees.
And it's starting again with the entrees. All it
takes is one televised (and burned) fish for Ramsay to flippin' lose it.
Seventy five minutes into service and very little
is leaving the kitchen. Ramsay sends Nona to start on steaks. Diners are finally
enjoying the fruits of the team's labors. Now back to the apps, as Sabrina...
loses it. Again. Trev backs her up and we're back on track. Entrees are pushing
out... except for salty mash. Gail's salmon grill is watery. It's swimming.
Russell's wellies are still raw.
The team vows not to give up... but the next
mistake that comes to the pass will shut down the kitchen. That lights a fire.
But for Russell's ribeye... Ramsay follows up on his threat and shuts the
Nona was the only one safe tonight, because she's
the only one who wasn't in the kitchen when the (^_^) went down.
And it seems like the team is in accordance as to
who should go home.... except for the two who are in question. One of them is
going to Jillian to see if she can't get off the block and put Gail up. Jillian
wants to vote for Gail instead of Sabrina. So it's all on Nona as to who will be
Sure enough... TREV and SABRINA get the
nod for screwing the pooch at apps and for not communicating.
Ramsay's patience is running out on both of them.
Trev says that he didn't give up on the station. Sabrina said that she never
made the same mistake twice. And she threw Gail under the bus.
But her impassioned plea fell on deaf ears, as
she was sent packing.
"Sabrina was quite dramatic in her final plea,
but I'm not looking for a drama queen. I'm looking for a head chef."
Far from a good night, but tomorrow is another
