  • Episode Description
  • The remaining aspiring chefs visit a sandwich shop and then are tasked to create their own unique sandwiches. The winning team spends a day in California's wine country, while the losers are forced to grind peanuts for use in a sandwich in the next day's dinner service. Overindulgence during the reward leads to late night shenanigans and sluggishness the next day. The dinner service proves disastrous for both teams, due to a number of mistakes. For the first time in the season, Chef Ramsay kicks out both teams well before service can be completed.moreless

  • Who will get eliminated in this 2 hour episode? My guess will be Salvatore from the Blue Team and Siobahn from the Red Team.

    • Chef Ramsay: Siobhan got pushed around a lot in Hell's Kitchen. So it was up to me to finally push her out.

    • Benjamin: (in an interview segment, regarding the Red Team) They're a bunch of yahoos. It's frustrating.

    • Chef Ramsay: (regarding Fran's risottos) You're about as **** consistent as pigeon **** on Trafalgar Square.

    • Siobhan: (in an interview segment) Oh my God. The quiet, reserved, Ed had turned into, like, a wild animal.

    • (The Blue Team has gotten very drunk during their reward and Ed ends up getting even more drunk)
      Holli: (in an interview segment) I may have encouraged Ed to drink a little bit more. (in the hot tub) Cheers, Ed.
      Ed: Salud, Holli.
      Holli: (in the interview segment) Ed is completely trashed, so it was kinda funny.

    Trivia (2)

    • Rewards Challenge: In this challenge, the chefs were tasked to create gourmet sandwiches. Each chef got to create their own sandwich and the team with the most points would win. Since the Red Team had an extra member, they were told to choose the sandwich that they felt was the worst to sit out from the challenge. Reward / Punishment: The challenge ended in a tie, so Chef Ramsay asked to taste the sandwich that the Red Team had chosen to exclude, which was Siobhan's. He declared it to be better than Fran's and dubbed the Blue Team the winners, as the Red Team made the mistake of excluding Siobhan's sandwich. For winning, the Blue Team got to travel by private jet to the Rosemount Estates, part of California's central wine country, for a wine-tasting. For losing, the Red Team had to shell and grind peanuts to be used in peanut butter, jam and foie gras sandwiches being served as an amuse-bouche appetizer at the next evening's dinner service.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Both teams were kicked out of the kitchen well before service could be completed and neither team was declared the winning team. As such, both were made to a consensus on two chefs to nominate for elimination. The Blue Team nominated Autumn for being late on garnishes and slowing down the team & Ed for trying to send out raw duck. The Red Team nominated Siobhan for not being able to handle any of the dishes and being kicked off her station and Fran for being disorganized, difficult to work with and not communicating. Eliminated: Siobhan.
