  • Episode Description
  • The aspiring chefs teach the art of gourmet meat preparation to housewives, with the winner of the challenge given one-on-one time with chefs Mark Peel and Ben Ford. The losing chefs are made to give Hell's Kitchen a top-to-bottom cleaning. The chefs later struggle to complete their most complicated dinner service yet. With only five left, they face a full restaurant as well as a twelve-top table and an added special. Some chefs thrive, but others crack under the pressure and dinner service on the whole turns out to be well below the expected standards.moreless

  • I hope that someone rises above the rest, but right there is no one I would hire to run a high class establishment, not even close.

  • Alot of clutter and activities going on. Distractions galore! But more beliveable than past.

    • (after Jean-Philippe bangs his head on the glass door) Chef Ramsay: Can we get a sign on here? Open your eyes, you Belgium ****

    • Chef Ramsay: Although Bobby was big in stature, he fell short in a number of areas. I kept on waiting for him to emerge, but he never did. That's why I have to say 'Over and out, General Bobby.'

    • Jen: I'll keep it going, Chef.
      Chef Ramsay: You're too ****ing slow. Get out of the way.

    • Chef Ramsay: (to Jen) I asked you to speed up and put a little energy in your step and it's like clump, clump, clump, clump, clump, clump.

    • Corey: (in an interview segment, as Christina has a reward with Mark Peel and Ben Ford) Christina's reward is not good for ego because she gets more and more cocky about her cooking skills.
