9 Chefs Compete
August 15

Last week, Gordon Ramsay was NOT the biggest chef in the building, as Wolfgang Puck sampled some uncomforting comfort food. Service was finished, BUT since there was no leader on the Blue side, they send Jonathon home. Meanwhile, on the Reds, the rivalry between Carrie and Elise is just heating up thanks to her taking a role in the flow of the kitchen.

And the Reds are pretty much over it. They want to split the two up and get one out, if only to restore some order around here.

The next day brings... a question. "Who's married here?" Will and Elise are married. Not to each other. Thank goodness. That would've been weird.

The reason for this question? This round is all about romance.

CHALLENGE #9: Romantic Desserts

Each contestant will have one hour to create a sexy dessert. Because the Reds have one extra dish, they vote (eventually) to ditch Elise's dish.

Judging: chefs Waylynn Lucas (fonuts) and Jordan Kahn (Red Medicine). Each judge will award one, two, or three stars to a dish.

Tommy: Toffee & Macadamia Sticky Bun - 1 + 1 = 2
Paul: Banana Polenta Cake with Lemon Mascarpone Whip - 3 + 3 = 6
Natalie: Chocolate Espresso Bread Pudding - 2 + 1 = 3
Will: Fruit... Foam... thing. 1 + 1 = 2

Jamie: Croissant Fig Bread Pudding - 2 + 1 = 3
Elizabeth: Ricotta Strawberry Napoleon - 1 + 2 = 3
Carrie: Blondie & Butterscotch Chips - 1 + 1 = 2
Jennifer: Chocolate Bananas Foster - 3 + 3 = 6

The Reds are spending the night... at Caesars Palace in VEGAS, BABY! The Blues are spending the night...at Hell's Kitchen in PREP, BABY! And be thorough about it, because it is Date Night tomorrow, and there is a raw bar to be set up. (C-Note: I am single, by the way. Ladies?.... Okay, that was dumb.)

For the record, Elise's fresh berry zabaglione... for 50... that wasn't sexy. At all. Not the portion, not the vinegar, nothing. Babe Ruth can't hit a homer every night.

So the Vegas digs. Not a suite. Not a penthouse.. a VILLA... complete with piano, pool table, pool, chocolate fountain, and a naked chick with food on her. Speaking of, Holly Madison arrives with copies of her new memoir for them to take home. AND each person in the team gets to go back with a loved one for three nights, two days. Theirs to enjoy after the race... I've heard of sick prizes, this is one of the sickest.

Speaking of sick, let's go back to HK, where the Blues are dancing with each other. That's another network.

Back in Vegas, Carrie and Elise... about to ruin the good times.

Morning comes early, and the Blues are using their punishment time to regroup. Ride or die. Sink or swim. Meanwhile, the Reds are back in Hell for the next push.



In attendance today, couples, couples, and more couples. From the married for life... to the just meeting today... to one guy with all the answers looking for the one answer that matters.

(C-Note: No seriously, ladies.... I am single. Heh... Okaythatwasdumb.)

In addition to the regular menu, we also have the raw bar.

Tommy is looking to prove himself tonight... and Carrie is looking to get her first order out. Which doesn't help if you got Elise ignoring you. Back to Tommy, who's screwing scallops... again. Seasoning them too soon. Twice. Back in the red kitchen, Jennifer is dragging her team kicking and screaming ahead. Food's coming out.. and one dish. Well, Jamie contributed an unwanted garnish... Her hair. Ew? And no one is seeing her contest it.  Back with the Blues, and Tommy is started on entrees... and we haven't finished apps. He needs a few moments to himself outside... And by that, we mean talking to the audience.

The Reds head into entrees, and Carrie's burned her bass. Carrie's fighting to stay in the kitchen. But his mind is (^_^)ing made up. He sends Carrie out on her... bass.

Tommy's still working the crowd before returning back after a jolt in the pants (and perhaps in the head). He's back in the game... and so is the Blue Team. Meanwhile in the red kitchen, Jamie is... lost. She's burned her garnish, and she's about to burn her bridges. Ninety minutes into service, diners are now receiving their entrees again. Paul is ready to serve up... raw chicken. Another big time error, another benched chef.

The couples are at least enjoying the time without a kosher meal.

Elise, in the red kitchen, is serving a vegan cappellini.... with lobster. BAD! "A black jacket? You need a straitjacket."

Tommy arrives back in the kitchen to find Ramsay working his station... Tommy forces his way back.. eventually. Meanwhile, Elise undercooks her oysters dish and is forced to eat her mistakes out of the kitchen.

The remnants of both teams pull it together and finish the service. But before we clear down for the night... one special dessert for one special person... Let's just say it has "Will you marry me?" written all over it. Literally. Sweet moment, and of course our lucky lady says yes. It's a rare tender moment in the kitchen.

We go from a proposal to a divorce. The Reds have completely fallen apart. They will nominate. Blues finally get back on the winning side.

Jennifer... is understandably pissed at both Carrie AND Elise, who must learn to pick their battles wisely.


The Reds nominate Carrie (weak fish and disrespect to Ramsay) and Elise (weak apps). Both chefs bring the dynamic down, and the team is tired of it.

Carrie says that Ramsay is wrong about her. She's ready to fight. Elise made mistakes, but she's not in over her head.

Leaving Hell's Kitchen tonight....


NEITHER. It's JAMIE's turn to go. She's gone downhill and Ramsay's done with her. Let her downfall be a lesson to the rest of the team, as you should let this...

"Jamie's lack of fight-back told me she's not ready to be a head chef. The remaining chefs need to know it's not about what they've done in the past. It's what they do here that counts."
