16 Chefs Compete
July 19

It was anything but a smooth opening to the ninth season of HK last night, as the chefs experienced a disastrous service... and a chef who probably would've been a superstar didn't even make it that far due to illness. So now 16 remain in the hunt for the head chef position at BLT Steak in NYC.

The next morning... a rude awakening courtesy a little kid with a big cherry axe.

CHALLENGE #2: Back to Basics (meat temperature)

Teams of two will have to prepare a medium rare New York strip, a medium ribeye, a medium well filet, and a well done burger in 20 minutes. Will will be working on his own.

While Elise & Carrie are getting ready to kill each other, Jonathon and Brendan are getting ready to... crack one open. Men love the open flame, what can I say? And Will... says he's done.

- Amanda & Krupa: SWEEP
- Brendan & Jonathon: 2/4 (Women lead, 4-2)

- Carrie & Elise: 1/4
- Chino & Tommy: 3/4 (Tied at 5)

- Jamie & Natalie: 3/4
- Paul & Monterray: 2/4 (Women lead, 8-7)

- Jennifer, Gina & Elizabeth: 2/4
- Will: 3/3. The burger is... PERFECT (MEN win, 11-10)

The men will spend the day in Palm Springs. The women will spend the day... cleaning grills and delivering meat. Now if you'll excuse us, Chef Ramsay has a plane to catch.

If you've never been to Palm Springs... it's a beautiful place. Unless your name is Brendan and you can't stop talking. If you've never had an offal smoothie... it's not a beautiful place. Unless your name is Carrie. Lady is an animal. And speaking of animals, here's a whole dead one.

The women have also spent the entire day studying the menu. A good move if you want to get food out for the next day. Unless your name is Carrie and you're flirting with Brendan. And that turns into... something unsuitable for 8p ET. Even on Fox.

Next day, the men seem confident. Can they turn that confidence into victory, or will the women divide themselves and conquer the blues?

James... You know what to do.


Will and Carrie will be starting in the dining room making Caesar salad, while Krupa and Monterray will carve prime rib, both tableside.

We start with Jennifer confusing brisket salad with squab. Chino is off in space with the risotto, which he burns... twice. The women are pulling together to get apps out. But there's one problem... and she's in the dining room lost in her Caesar salad bliss. Krupa is pulled to help her. Chino finally nails a risotto and apps are leaving the blue kitchen. Brendan is ready for entrees... even as Ramsay isn't.

An hour into service, and we're ready for entrees... Everybody. Brendan brings up the same bass from earlier and calls it new. His bass... is about to be grass. Rule #1 of any dinner service... DO NOT LIE TO THE CHEF. That pulls the entire kitchen down.

Back in the red, Elise takes the role of leader. And no one is taking her seriously. And for good reasons. Ramsay puts her BACK in her place. The Blues are still struggling for their first entree. Tommy overcooks the duck. And again, not one entree is leaving the blue station. The women on the other hand are halfway through their service. They're driving their tickets and the momentum is beautiful. But then Krupa drops the prime rib - all of it - on the floor.

Brendan's third seabass is the straw that breaks the camel's back, and he sends the entire team (except for Monterray, who is still in the dining room serving Krupa's rib) BACK TO THE DORMS! Or, you know, not... editing and all, you don't know what happened.

Meanwhile, back in the kitchen, four reds have gone to the blue to finish what the men couldn't even start. The women EASILY take their second service in a row.

The Blues are busy thinking who really screwed the pooch.


... and they all come to a consensus... Brendan and Chino.

Brendan says he's got heart and character. Enough to lie to chefs. Chino says that he thought he was good, and that this was humbling. He does say that he is better than Brendan...

An easy elimination, as the bass proves to be BRENDAN's Waterloo.

"The only thing bigger than Brendan's ego are the lies that he tells, and I can't have that in Hell's Kitchen."

Before adjourning for the night, Ramsay asks for one of the women to go over to the blues. Monterray asks for otherwise, taking the six they have. What will become of the blue team? Stay tuned...

Meanwhile, stay tuned for "MasterChef" coming up next over most of these Fox stations.
