  • Episode Description
  • Hoping to find leadership and stoke passion, Chef Ramsay swaps the teams of two of the aspiring chefs. For the day's challenge, each chef is asked to create a unique salad and the team with the most favored salads wins. The challenge ends in a tie, so the victory is determined by the single best salad. The winning team enjoys lunch at the Getty Villa, with the creator of the best salad getting his work featured on Bon Appetit. The losing team is made to clean, prep and set up both kitchens ahead of service, which is being held that evening. During the evening's dinner service, the aspiring chefs face the added pressure of serving celebrities at chef's tables. Some rise to the challenge, while others find themselves on fire or kicked out. Though service is completed, Chef Ramsay finds it to be filled with speed bumps and decides that there is no winning team. He then goes on his own to determine the evening's elimination.moreless

    Trivia (3)

    • Team Switch: At the beginning of the episode, Melissa was swapped to the Blue Team and Trev was swapped to the Red Team.

    • Rewards Challenge: For this episode's challenge, Chef Ramsay asked each team to create five unique salads in 30 minutes. Reward / Punishment: The challenge was tied up at 2-2. As such, the best salad was the tie-breaker and that turned out to be Rob's for the Blue Team. For winning, the Blue Team got to enjoy lunch at Getty Villa. Additionally, Rob's salad was featured in Bon Appetit, as well as on the menu at Hell's Kitchen, plus he got to attend a Bon Appetit photo shoot. For losing, the Red Team had clean, prep and set up both kitchens ahead of service, which was being held that evening.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Though both teams completed service, Chef Ramsay was disappointed in both and asked them to each nominate one chef for elimination. The Red Team nominated Sabrina for freaking out on the garnish station and Boris for having done pitifully on three stations so far. Chef Ramsay, though pleased with the nominations, decided that he also wanted to hear from Nona and Melissa. Eliminated: Melissa
