August 8

Last week, Hell's Kitchen hosted a high school reunion, but it was anything but musical for the Reds on the Team Challenge and the Blues on the Service. Elise took the reigns and had her best service yet. The Blues, on the other hand... sent Monterray home on the back of his poor fish performance.

The Blues are tired of losing, and they're not going to do it anymore. Meanwhile, Krupa gets a little bit... relaxed. And by relaxed, we mean pissy ass drunk. And she's feeling it the next morning.

CHALLENGE #7: My Big Fat Drunk Challenge (creativity)

A lot of ingredients. A lot of possibilities. But mixing  these up for our chefs are Hallie & Christina, who would make... beer out of these ingredients. That's because they're beer sommeliers. And today, so are you! Each will create a dish based on beer in 45 minutes. Then rank your dishes, and have'em go head to head. Best of five wins.

Krupa is still.... asleep. Pay attention, kids. This is relevant.

Krupa's dish is dropped.

PAUL: Hefeweizen Salmon
CARRIE: Filet in Stout with Raspberry Stout
WINNER: Carrie (Red up, 1-0)

JONATHON: Punch-Drunk Chicken... 2.0
ELISE: Belgian White Salmon
WINNER: Elise (Red up, 2-0)

NATALIE: Chocolate Stout Filet
JENNIFER: Hefeweizen Sausage & Chicken Stew
WINNER: Natalie (Red up, 2-1)

ELIZABETH: Amber Mussels & Clams
WILL: Lambic-Infused Venison Loin
WINNER: Will (Tied at 2)

JAMIE: Belgian White Duck
TOMMY: Raspberry Lambic Duck

Once again, the Blues are going to enjoy the fruits of their labor (no, not that, Jonathon) with a trip to the Long Beach Grand Prix. The Reds... are taking delivery.

And Elise is... just... standing there... again. Really, come on, Elise. Your own team can't stand you. And they're not about to let her go off the hook about it. And reality cliche #15: Elise is not here to make friends. Well, that would help a lot.

At the tracks, Paul is like Ralph Wiggum to a female driver saying... "So... you like... stuff?"

Next day, and Elise seems to have turned a new leaf. Apparently all she needs is to not be punished. Meanwhile the Blues are looking at today as a redemption. Do what you know. Know what you do. That's all we ask.

Fast-forward to... "James! OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN, PLEASE!"


There are football players in presence, like Andre Carter and Matt Leinart. They're all waiting for the now-ratified CBA, while Ramsay has added beer towers to every table and Belgian Ale-steamed mussels and stout-spiced venison to the menu. Want to cook them at home? I hope fox.com is putting the recipe up.

The Reds are starting strong where they finished. The Blues are looking to start strong as well. But Natalie puts a stop to the good times. Great risotto, crap scallops. Elise... has a drippy salad. That's not good. They recover quickly, while Natalie is looking to impress with the second attempt... Nope. Sorry. Can't do it. She cooked 30 scallops at least. And NONE of them are right. Thanks to Will, she actually gets a batch right.

The Reds now onto entrees, and Jamie on fish and Krupa on meat need to keep the momentum going. They're... not in sync. At all. They're also raw, both of them. Elise decides to put her foot up someone's ass, while Jonathon is looking to impress on the blue side of the world.. but thanks to Tommy, the wellies are screwed.

Ninety minutes into service, and the Blues are logjammed, while the Reds are pushing entrees... and Elise is pushing buttons by yelling every ticket at once. Krupa sinks the ship on meat... while Jonathon and Natalie are trying to get the Blues back on track. But Tommy's wellies are all over under over under... and Ramsay's about to have at him. He sends him and Natalie back, and Jonathon's ready to clock out in some edited sound-byte madness. Not to tell Art and Kent how to do their job but... that's just unnecessary. Ultimately, he does take responsibility for the meats.

A few tickets remain, but will the teams finish on a high? We do... but like last week this time, there's no real winner here. Ramsay's looking for greatness and he didn't find it.

While the Blues find two easy marks, Jamie and Elise are about to tear each others' heads off.


The Blues nominate Natalie (weak fish) and Jonathon (weak meat). The Reds nominate Krupa (weak meat) and Jamie (one weak fish). She also brings up Elise being... well, Elise.

Ramsay wants to hear from the nominated four. Jamie has a lot of fight in her. Krupa still has a lot to give. Jonathon wasn't ready to walk out on someone else's mistake. Natalie knows that she's better than that.

Ramsay then asks for... KRUPA'S jacket. BUT... he's not done yet. What does Ramsay have in store? Find out in 23 hours.
