  • Episode Description
  • Following the previous day's disastrous first service, Chef Ramsay decides to test the chefs' attention to detail by having them work with shrimp. He pits the two teams in a challenge clean shrimp to exacting standards. The winning team is given a fabulous lunch, while the losing team is made to prepare shrimp cocktail and segment lemons for the next service. At the next service, one chef from each team is asked to serve shrimp cocktail tableside. In the process, one of them gets into a snit with maitre d' Jean Philippe and both are told to cool down by Chef Ramsay. The evening's service goes so badly that Ramsay shuts both kitchens down and has the chefs simply serve shrimp cocktail so that everyone gets something to eat. Chef Ramsay tells both teams to come up with two nominees, but when it comes time to present those nominees, one chef refuses to present them properly. Grilled by Chef Ramsay, this contestant demonstrates anger management issues, throws off his jacket and challenges Ramsay to a throwdown in the parking lot.moreless

  • Quotes (17)

    • Van: (on serving shrimp scampi tableside) Hell yeah, that shrimp was Van-licious tonight! They were lovin' it, they were eatin' it all up. It's all about charisma and finesse. (footage is shown of Van dropping a pan of shrimp on the floor) I wasn't havin' too much finesse when I dropped that pan on the floor, but they still loved it!

    • Jim: (seeing JP posing on the front of Ramsay's yacht) In comes the boat with that crazy Belgian with the sock down his pants and a sweater over his shoulder. It was ridiculous. Tony: (in an interview) I give it up to JP- I wear tight pants! He's just got style!

    • Tek: (segmenting and de-pitting lemons) I'm getting to know these lemons better than some people I've slept with.

    • Tony: (jubilant after winning the shrimp challenge) We are the ****! (looks uncomfortable) For now...

    • Joseph: We could keep talking like this out in the **** parking lot. I don't give a ****. What do you want me to say?
      Chef Ramsay: I ask the questions, you give the **** answers!
      (Joseph throws off his jacket and tells Ramsay to step outside, standing right in Ramsay's face; the episode ends as "to be continued...")

    Trivia (2)

    • Rewards Challenge: The chefs from both teams had just ten minutes to dehead, deshell and devein as many shrimp as possible. Reward: The Blue Team won this challenge with 45 shrimp, beating out the Red Team's 44. For winning, they were sent to Newport Harbor for lunch featuring a lobster seafood platter and raw bar, followed by dessert on a 100-foot megayacht. Punishment: The Red Team was made to create shrimp cocktail for the next dinner service and segment lemons, removing every seed.

    • Nominees for Elimination: No team won this episode's dinner service, as both put in an abysmal performance and were told to select two nominees for elimination. The Red Team nominated Tenille, for serving raw shrimp to a pregnant lady and Lovely, based on overall performance and experience. For the Blue Team, Joseph was asked to name the two nominees and said Tony was being eliminated and "he knows why" and Andy, no reason given. Eliminated: Neither. When Chef Ramsay first asked Joseph for the nominees, he said simply that they knew who they were. Ramsay got annoyed and asked him again for the "first nominee and why," at which point Joseph gave both names. When Ramsay continued to call him out on this, Joseph said he wasn't no ****, threw off his jacket and challenged him to a throwdown in the parking lot. The episode ended as "to be continued..."
