14 Chefs Compete
July 26

The men couldn't do anything right in the kitchen, but then Natalie came like a miracle and saved their butts from a third-straight disasterpiece theatre. The departure heightened the growing rifts between Carrie & everyone, between Elise & everyone, and between Carrie & Elise. Will something be done about it today?

"She's not going to get better. She sucks. She did nothing and she's still here." Guess not.

The next morning, the fourteen chefs look like really bad Super Mario cosplayers for... chicken deliveries.

CHALLENGE #4: Chicken Run (creativity)

Each team will produce four stunning chicken dish using various ingredients. The ingredients will be chosen after you chase down four chickens and deposit them in their coops. You want as many ingredients as possible within five minutes. Chicken catching is easier for some than others. Jonathon & Natalie, among the best of 'em. After five minutes, the reds get nine, the blues 11.

Now to cook. The cooks will pair up to grill, sauté, fry, or roast their chicken. Oh, did we mention that the team has to share ONE chicken?

First, Gina & Carrie's fried chicken... is raw. Woops.

Judging will be People Magazine's Jenn Garcia and EW's Dave Carter. The chef with the best dish today will be featured with Ramsay in a future edition of People.

- Carrie & Gina: Raw Fried Chicken
- Paul: Roasted Corn Fried Chicken
WINNER: Paul (Blue leads, 1-0)

- Jennifer & Krupa: Chicken Cacciatore
- Jonathon & Will: Lemon Herb Chicken
WINNER: BOTH! (Blues lead, 2-1)

- Jamie: Grilled Chicken Salad
- Monterray & Tommy: Grilled Chicken & Garbanzo Beans with half of it on the floor in the kitchen.
WINNER: Jamie (Tied at 2)

- Elise & Elizabeth: Roasted Chicken with Squash Swiss Chard Saute
- Natalie & Chino: Roasted Chicken Coconut Curry Soup

The Reds will be going go-carting. The best dish... Elise & Elizabeth's roast. As for the Blues, they will be prepping chicken stock.

The reward takes us to K1 Speedway, as the women reenact that one scene in "The Right Stuff". You know which one. We learn that Elizabeth, being from Manhattan, can't drive and never bothered to learn. Jennifer can drive, just slowly. The final race comes down to Jamie, Elise, and Carrie... And it's Mario Kart out there. Winner... JAMIE!

The blues make the most of their time in the kitchen and rehearse a smooth service. Chino... isn't getting with the program.

Next day brings the prep and the service. The blues seem focus and united, while the reds... are talking back to Andi. And by "The Reds", I mean "Elise". Why would you do that. She needs to calm the calm down.



In addition to their standard rota of 50 diners, the chefs will have VIP guests at chef's tables: Olympic volleyballers Misty May Treanor and Jen Kessy will be dining with the Reds, while Olympic swimmers Mark Spitz and Janet Evans will be dining in the Blue Kitchen.

Krupa will host the Chef's Table on the Reds, while the Blues will send Jonathon to see to our VIPs.

Elise is ready with her first app... with no color and all rubber. Second treatment... perfect. Tommy's appetizer's hoping to score with the VIPs. It... doesn't. Carrie is coordinating times for apps... and Elise is ready for plates that aren't ready yet. An hour in, and the Blues are almost done with apps... Although Monterray can't take fish direction on the chin like a man, saying that it's falling apart and there's "nothing he can do about it." Here's an idea. Remember what you were doing? Yeah, don't do that.

Jonathon can't have that. Man up and man your station. And the team is embarrassing themselves in front of the guests.

The Reds are DONE with apps. Now come the entrees. Gina slices the strip prematurely. Now Chino is working the two-top on the chef's tables. He needs more time on the meat. His Wellie is cold and raw. Elise's sea bass... one is dry, one is raw. Time for her to fall on this one. Chino's second entree attempt... No better than the first. And that'll do it for his team, leaving a flabbergasted Ramsay to apologize for their error.

So the Reds are left to serve BOTH VIP tables... and yeah, that doesn't go over as planned either. SHUT IT DOWN. Service ends in a complete and utter CF of a nightmare of a disaster. Scott & Andi are left to tend to the VIPs.

"Pathetic." No winners, both teams will nominate TWO.

The Blues try to discuss the situation, as Chino drove the team downward. Natalie brings to cry as China takes her assistance the wrong way.

As for the Reds... Jamie tries to be fair about who should go up, and Elise... starts running her damn mouth. Simple question: who would make the team stronger by leaving? And they can't even answer that. So the Reds answer it for them.


But first, the Blues nominate Chino (meat blunders) and Monterray (fish blunders). The Reds nominate Carrie (weak link) and Elise (too much drama).

Monterray says that he is a strong cook, but he doesn't believe that he shut down in the face of assistance. Chino says that he's embarrassed and he wishes that he could show what he can do. Carrie says that she's a fighter and she's better than this, saying Elise is NOT a team player. The Reds are split between the two ladies... favoring Elise to go. She says that it's her first time...  And it won't be her last. She is back in line.

Leaving tonight... CHINO. Again, Elise said it, he was up three times. Three strikes and you're out.

"Chino took his time in Hell's Kitchen very seriously. The problem is, he seriously couldn't cook."

Elise has not a single friend in the kitchen. How will that affect her? Stay tuned.
