    Trivia (3)

    • Rewards Challenge: The remaining chefs were now competing individually, but for this challenge, they were paired off. The pairings were Van & Ariel, Tennille & Kevin and Suzanne & Dave. This challenge was "Taste and Make It." Each pairing had to taste a dish created by Chef Ramsay and then try to match the presentation and ingredients as bst possible. Reward: Dave and Suzanne won this challenge. For winning they received a trip to Gordon Ramsay's L.A. restaurant, the London West Hollywood, where they got to have lunch with Christina Machamer, the winner of the fourth season of Hell's Kitchen. Punishment: The remaining chefs had to remain at Hell's Kitchen and prep for dinner service, which was being held that evening. Additionally, it was couple's night and they had to work with Jean-Philippe to create a romantic setting in the dining room.

    • Merge: At the beginning of the episode, the remaining chefs were each given black jackets and made into a single team.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Chef Ramsay was so frustrated by the performance of Van, Ariel and Suzanne that he tossed them all out of the kitchen. He then asked the remaining three chefs to choose two of them for potential elimination. When it came time to reveal the nominees, they turned out to be Suzanne for refusing to put her name to food that was going out while Chef Ramsay and Scott were out of the kitchen and Ariel for burning lettuce in a pan. Chef Ramsay asked Tennille if she agreed with these nominations and Tennille said that she felt that Van should be up there instead of Ariel. Chef Ramsay had mixed feelings and asked all three chefs that he had tossed out to step forward. Eliminated: Van.
