6 Chefs Compete
November 17

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 hooked.

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 taste)

Gail: Sesame Chicken Spring Roll. (44/43) 87
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... $250,000!

That's a lot of lettuce. The question now... WHO'S HUNGRY? OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN!


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 kitchen down.

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 nominated today.


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 day.
