  • With both teams struggling at working together, Gordon Ramsay thrusts them into a challenge that directly tests their teamwork. He has them serve breakfast to a group of 100 young kids. A close challenge ends with one team suffering the punishment of cleaning the entire kitchen and doing all the day's prep, while the other enjoys a day of pampering. The kitchen opens for service that evening, but both teams put in a disastrous performance. In a first, Chef Ramsay declares both teams to be losers and has them each nominate two chefs for elimination.moreless

    • Paula: (after Colleen spends more time cheering than cooking) These cheerleaders were so cute! You know, it's when they get older and they get more annoying.

    • Chef Ramsay: Seth showed that he had all the passion in the world, but the bottom line is he's a crap cook.

    • Chef Ramsay: I can't go any further with you, big boy. Seth: Yes, Chef. It's been a pleasure. (in an interview segment) My abilities and my skills are definitely was what lagged behind, not my confidence, not my passion, not my love for food.

    • Chef Ramsay: Something's really bugging me. You know that? And I can't stop thinking about it. And here's why. If a customer goes out for dinner and their steak is slightly overcooked or undercooked, it gets redone and they move on and enjoy the evening. But if a customer goes out for dinner and they get served a butt of lettuce, that's how reputations get destroyed in minutes, butthead.

    • Paula: (in an interview segment) Colleen takes a damn hard beating from Chef Ramsay just about every night and she keeps her head up high, but I think her brain, it's just breaking down.

    Trivia (3)

    • Rewards Challenge: Gordon Ramsay told the chefs that this challenge was intended to test their teamwork. With just thirty minutes to prepare, they had to cook breakfast for a hundred hungry children, members of the Pacific Coast Youth Football and Cheer League. The winning team was the one to complete service first. Reward: The Red Team secured their first challenge victory and was told that they were going camping... Beverly Hills style. This meant a day of being pampered poolside at the Beverly Wilshires Four Seasons hotel. Punishment: The Blue Team is made to fully clean both the dining room and the kitchens, then do all of the prep for service, which is held that evening.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Gordon Ramsay told both teams that they lost. Seth & Ben were nominated by the Blue Team and Colleen & Lacey were nominated by the Red Team. Eliminated: Seth

    • With three men down from the Blue Team and only one woman lost from the Red, Chef Ramsay transfers Lacey to the Blue Team for the next episode.
