  • Episode Description
  • The remaining aspiring chefs are presented with their first true individual challenge-- to create entrees that not only taste good but also look good. The dishes are judged by the editorial staff of Bon Appetit Magazine. The two dishes that look best are tasted by Gordon Ramsay and Barbara Fairchild and two chefs get a surprise when the results are declared a tie, making them both winners. The two winners get to enjoy a photo shoot for Bon Appetit, while the losing chefs are made to don prison garb and perform community service. During the punishment, one chef that has been struggling sustains a further injury. The evening's dinner service turns out to be something of a disaster. All seemingly in it for themselves, the aspiring chefs find themselves unable to work as a team and mistakes are made throughout service. Though the service is completed, Gordon Ramsay finds himself appalled. Every chef faces the threat of elimination, but one chef who has been skirting elimination for several weeks finally goes home.moreless

  • It's not so much becoming someone elses to win as much as it's becoming Ariel's to loose.

    Trivia (2)

    • Rewards Challenge: Each chef had to put together a single entree that would be graded not only its taste, but also on its presentation. The dishes were judged by the editorial staff of Bon Appetit Magazine, who picked two dishes that they felt had the best presentation to be graded by Chef Ramsay and Editor-in-Chief Barbara Fairchild. Reward: Ariel and Kevin's dishes were selected as having the best presentation. Upon tasting them, Ramsay and Fairchild chose to call it a tie, making both Ariel and Kevin the winners. For winning, they got to travel for a photo-shoot for Bon Appetit with Ramsay and Fairchild at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica, with their dishes featured. Additionally, their dishes appeared on that evening's menu at dinner service. Punishment: For losing, the remaining chefs had to dress in convict jumpsuits and then do clean-up work on a road adopted by Hell's Kitchen. Once they got back, they then had to clean Hell's Kitchen, including steam-cleaning the red carpet.

    • Nominees for Elimination: There was no best of the worst in this episode. Each chef made their share of mistakes, so Chef Ramsay asked them to all come together to nominate two chefs for elimination. Ariel was nominated for inconsistencies on the meat station, serving raw chicken and lamb. Suzanne was nominated for serving raw fish and overcooked scallops but still believing that she had a good service. Eliminated: Suzanne.
