  • Episode Description
  • The six remaining chefs are unified into a single team. For their first individual challenge, they are told to make a fantastic dish using 14 distinct ingredients. The winning chef and one other spend a day touring San Francisco, while the remaining chefs are put through the punishment of delivery day. For the evening's service, Chef Ramsay sends the chefs in with high expectations, which they utterly fail to live up to. One chef is briefly tossed out of the kitchen, while another back-talks Chef Ramsay and then makes a mistake that causes another to endure a serious burn. Following the evening's elimination, Chef Ramsay does some serious deliberating and then calls the chefs into the kitchen at 2:14 A.M. for a shocking announcement.moreless

  • An eventful episode that was enjoyable to watch, but was tainted with stupid stunts that were rather annoying.

    • Paula: First night with the Black Team: one big cluster****!

    • Giovanni: (after Ben tells all the lovely details of his trip to San Francisco) Shut the **** up, eat your Cheerios, have a cigarette, and go **** yourself!

    • Andrea: (after Ramsay pretends to eliminate her and Ben) My kneecaps were shaking, my pinky toes were shaking! I honestly thought I was going to be one of the first to go out of Hell's Kitchen for doing absolutely nothing!

    • Chef Ramsay: It just doesn't make sense! How can the final six be so ****?! I've called you all back here because on the back of that performance, I'm now gonna do something I've never done before. I'm shutting down Hell's Kitchen.

    • Giovanni: (following his elimination) I wanted a challenge and that's what I got. I got a challenge out of it.

    Trivia (5)

    • Due to Chef Ramsay's startling announcement at the end of the episode, there was no footage of the Chef hanging up Giovanni's coat and burning his picture, as usual.

    • Extra Helping: In a feature shown during a commercial break, Chef Ramsay was asked by a viewer what he would want as his last meal if he were on death row and about to executed. He laughed and said that while he may be angry, he's not about to end up on death row. He then said that if it did happen, he would want mac' and cheese-- his mom's recipe, not just any.

    • Rewards Challenge: For the first individual challenge, Chef Ramsay challenged the remaining chefs to create a dish using 14 ingredients, all of which must be included in the final product. The ingredients included red wine, penne pasta, mushrooms, rosemary and chicken. They all had thirty minutes to prepare their dishes. Reward: Ben won this challenge, complimented in particular for being the only one to use the drum of the chicken. He took Robert along on the reward, which was a tour of San Francisco, followed by a meal in a restaurant that had just recently received its first Michelin star. Punishment: It was delivery day at Hell's Kitchen and the losers had to run outside and pick up deliveries every time they heard the horn of a delivery truck. While not doing that, they were busy prepping for the next service.

    • Best of the Worst: Paula Nominees for Elimination: Chef Ramsay was greatly unimpressed with the dinner service as a whole, but complimented Paula for her performance on appetizers. He asked her to nominate "two idiots" for elimination. Her choices were Giovanni, for his performance in the night's service and general downhill slide, and Andrea, for her struggles with communication. Eliminated: Giovanni
