  • Episode Description
  • Chef Ramsay fools the remaining chefs with a frozen dinner, then tests their palates in a blind taste test. Blindfolded and earmuffed, the chefs taste a number of ingredients. Both teams perform poorly, but the winning team gets to enjoy a day at SeaWorld, while the losers are made to unload deliveries of trout. Both teams are given the opportunity to design their own menu, consisting of four appetizers, four entrees and four desserts. At the dinner service, one team receives an overwhelming number of orders, forcing them hustle to keep up. Despite this, both teams end up losing the service, leading to a tough elimination.moreless

    Trivia (3)

    • Rewards Challenge: This challenge was the once-per-season blind taste test. The chefs were blindfolded and earmuffed and went head-to-head to try to identify ingredients. Reward / Punishment: The Blue Team won this challenge, with a total of just four correctly identified ingredients out of sixteen, against the Red Team's three correct identifications. For winning, they were given a V.I.P. pass to SeaWorld where they got to visit Shamu the killer whale and swim with dolphins. For losing, the Red Team was punished with delivery day, unloading trout and other deliveries when they heard the delivery horns honking.

    • Team Change: During the elimination, Chef Ramsay told both of the nominated chefs to take off their jackets. Fran was eliminated, but Autumn was told that she was being transferred back over to the Red Team.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Though both teams successfully completed service, neither was rewarded with the victory. He told them to each come to a consensus on one person to nominate for elimination. The Blue Team nominated Autumn for having a bad night on meats and holding everything back. The Red Team went with Fran for being a mess at dinner service and trying to send out raw chicken. Eliminated: Fran.
