10 Chefs Compete
August 9

Last night, there were tears... and beers, as beer night in Hell's Kitchen produced no drunken masters, as both teams - for lack of leadership - nominated for elimination. Krupa was sent packing, but Ramsay was not yet finished.

Ramsay addresses the leadership issue, asking for one chef from each team to step up in the role. He wants the answer the first thing in the morning. The Reds choose Jennifer. The Blues choose Will. Both are a little dumbfounded. Like... "Me?" It was an easy decision all around... but still, a lot of ... "Me?"

Fast-forward to the AM, when both leaders are tasked with asking for the weakest link goodbye. Jennifer picks Carrie. Will picks Tommy. Why is this relevant? Good question, because it's time for them to prove to their respective teams otherwise.

CHALLENGE #8: Comfort Classics (innovation and leadership)

Each team will take five comfort classics and sex them up for a gourmet setting. The five dishes are burgers, chicken noodle soup, Cobb salad, pizza, and spaghetti & meatballs. They will be judged by Ramsay and ... the biggest name to step foot in Hell's Kitchen to date.

Game show fans of the world... Stop at.... WOLFGANG PUCK.

JAMIE: Lamb sliders
TOMMY: Soy-infused burger
WINNER: Jamie (Reds up, 1-0)

ELIZABETH: Traditional Cobb Salad with Honey Dijon Dressing
NATALIE: Salmon Cobb Remix
WINNER: Natalie (Tied at 1)

ELISE: A mess.
WILL: A hot mess.

JENNIFER: Southwestern CNS
PAUL: Italian CNS
WINNER: Jennifer (Reds up, 2-1)

CARRIE: A raw Shrimp Basil Pesto
JONATHON: A watery Pesto with Truffle Oil that is borderline illegal in Italy.
WINNER: Screw that. Reds win, 2-1.

The Reds will spend the day laughing it up at the Laugh Factory. The Blues will spend the day laughing so as not to cry - cleaning and prepping both kitchens for tonight's service and then cleaning the dorms.

And Jonathon is not taking the punishment well, saying that he has a strange crick in his neck. And since Tommy was the team leader, he is given the bathroom... and toothbrushes to which to clean it. And while the Reds are laughing it up... Jonathon is nowhere to be found.

And the Reds will also be receiving cookware to take home. Very beautiful cookware. Keep that to the side, because in one hour, Hell's Kitchen opens... and Jonathon is still MIA back up in the dorms. Need I remind you of the story of Dave Levey, the one-armed bandit who came with it in season 6 to win the whole spiel. The Reds have just enough time to finish the prep that the Blues started, while Jonathon returns to the kitchen just in time for James to...



In attendance today, members of the US Coast Guard at the VIP tables.

Carrie starts by screwing the pizza. Jonathon starts by screwing the pasta... and Natalie. Carrie continues to sink the Reds... Jamie pitch-hits. The Reds rally back to get apps out. The Blues can only watch and wait. The pasta is overcooked and the mussels need salt. Natalie decides to take control of that station... and it's on Paul to show'em how to do it right. Ramsay pulls Jonathon aside, sensing something amiss. He brings up Dave Levey, who, again, "broke his (^_^)ing arm and went on to win the (^_^)ing competition!" Jonathon rallies back from this, and the Blues finally get the VIP apps out.

The ladies continue to keep the groove together. Interesting how a group of women that hate each other are working as one cohesive unit. They're in harmony, while the blues... are not. They're just all over the damn place. And what the hell is so funny, Tommy?

The meats are overloaded on the red side of the world, but it's nothing Elise can't handle. Eight meat for her, one fish for Jennifer. And each meat is perfect. That's epic. The blues, on the other hand... are on apps STILL. The tickets are backing up. And the difference between red and blue is night and day. Tommy in his own world... He can be in his own world up in the dorms if he doesn't wake up.

The Reds are driving toward their best finish yet. This isn't even CLOSE to a contest. Reds win, and Elise with the stench of meat on her is named Best of the Best. Blues, even though they FINALLY finish service on a high, have to nominate.

Will says that they haven't had a decent service in eight tries. Looking at the leaderboard.. They had ONE, #3. But back to the present. Jonathon is busy blaming everyone not named Jonathon for his shortcomings. No communication all around.


The Blues nominate Jonathon (weak apps) and Natalie (weak apps).

Backed up big time. And now the app section have to answer for it. Jonathon says that he's not a quitter, but he did the best that he could, and that he is not over his head in his mistakes. Natalie felt like that she needed to babysit Jonathon, and that no one had her back.

It's the end of the line for... Natalie... who gets back in line. Game over, JONATHON.

"The only thing worse than the pain of Jonathon's neck was listening to him blame everyone else for all his mistakes. I was glad to put him out of his misery."

Okay, Natalie. This is your last chance!
