15 Chefs Compete
Let's do a quick review. In TWO
services... the men have yet to serve ONE entree. The ladies, on the
other hand, won the last TWO services easily. Ramsay asked the men to
accept one of the women. The men refused. Unfortunately, it's not their
call... and nor is it the ladies' call, wanting to remain one unit.
... and Carrie volunteers.
The next morning, the chefs are awakened
by... oh, just a bunch of clowns.
The next challenge will involve a lot of
sandwiches. But before we do that, Carrie's choice to join the blues...
is rebuffed. Again, you're fighting for a reputation. Ramsay's GOT one.
He sends Natalie over. Natalie's secret to success... Organization.
CHALLENGE #3: Mommy & Me Lunch (teamwork)
Pasta & quesadillas for 50 kids, naan paninis for the moms. First team
to feed their diners wins the challenge.
Natalie emerges as the leader of the
blues. And so far, Jonathon approves. Teams are virtually deadlocked
heading into the mom's side of the equation. The reds have started to
fall back, while the blues have surged.
Both teams are racing to the finish. It's
a close one... but the BLUES finish! Thank G-d for you, Natalie.
Meanwhile, Carrie & Elise are fighting.
To the matter of rewards and punishments.
The Blues will find their reward in time. The Reds... have to listen to
Elise all day. That's punishment enough. Oh you want more? Okay. Since
I'm a nice guy... the dining room needs to be cleaned while cleaning
Meanwhile, the Blues are off to lunch and
a tournament at Medieval Times. But it's Carrie and Jamie doing most of
Back at HK, we're assembling a playground
for tomorrow night's service. The Blues return and ask for a flog and a
mead. I don't even know what that is.
New day... new service. It's family
night, and the blues are acting like a family for once, while the reds
are acting like a dysfunctional, splintered family. To assist James in
the dining room are Chino and Gina.
James... Chino... Gina.... OPEN HELL'S
DINNER SERVICE #3: Family Night
In addition to the regular menu, HK will offer a welcoming margherita
pizza and a kids' menu. Meanwhile, Gina aces her first order, while
Chino... doesn't. He finally gets the ticket in and we get the
kitchen going. And Amanda starts to smoke sauce. Woops. Tommy's chicken
fingers are burned.
Onto entrees for the reds, and Carrie &
Jennifer are on the meats, something Jennifer's not really looking
forward to. They deliver a burger that no one orders... and a Wellington
that no one orders. Now's the Blues' chance to get ahead. Will leads the
chefs of the blues into serving their first entrees... of the season. It
only took them three shows. Meanwhile, the sea bass on the red side is
swimming away from them. As is the cod that Amanda forgets about.
Natalie's stuck on a group of Wellies that she didn't cook all the way.
Next batch... BETTER. Blues are driving the kitchen. Reds are driving...
each other crazy with raw lamb.
And that's going to do it for Ramsay.
Gina takes the Reds around to their tables to apologize for their crap
performance. The first useful thing they did tonight. And also the LAST.
An opportune time to get rid of Carrie.
As for the Blue side... They finish their
service and start serving the red customers. FOR ONCE. Difference was
night and day.
Elise says that they were unfocused, and Carrie was the takedown from
that. BUT no one stepped up to the plate, calling Elise and Carrie drama
queens. Elise counters that Krupa just stood there, confirming why no
one entree left the Red Kitchen tonight.
Up on the block per Ramsay's nominate...
Jennifer... Carrie... AND Amanda.
Carrie says that cooking is in her heart.
Amanda is not in denial that she had a crap performance. Oh yeah, a
couple of bass, cod, and no fight back... Jennifer says that she should
have taken control.
AMANDA is ejected from Hell's Kitchen
with a message to the rest of the team... NEVER. GIVE. UP.
"Amanda lost the will to cook on the line tonight. I lost the will to
keep her here."
