  • Episode Description
  • The final four chefs compete in the third-to-last episode of the season for a shot at becoming the next winner of Hell's Kitchen. Chef Ramsay challenges the remaining chefs with the "taste it then make it" challenge in which they have to taste a dish that he created and then try to recreate that dish as close as possible to the original, based only on taste. The winning chef is treated to a spa day, while the losers are placed on laundry duty. That evening, during dinner service, the chefs turn in the best performance yet, despite some initial hangups. Chef Ramsay is so pleased that he gives everyone a delightful surprise following the service.moreless

    • Russell: (in an interview segment) It's hilarious. I'm being put for elimination, but the weakest link is Trevor.

    Trivia (3)

    • Family Meeting: For their strong performance at service, the remaining aspiring chefs got to see members of their family. Russell got to see his girlfriend Megan and his parents. Trev's family members were his sister Annie and best friend Josh. Jillian's were her boyfriend Christopher and her sons Dylan and Colin. Finally, Nona got to see her husband Curtis and baby boy Jackson.

    • Rewards Challenge: This was the "taste it, then make it" challenge, in which the remaining chefs had to taste a dish created by Gordon Ramsay and then attempt to duplicate it as closely as possible. Reward / Punishment: Nona won this challenge. She, along with Russell, correctly identified that the protein in Ramsay's dish was veal. Her reward for winning was a spa day, along with a set of cookware and one of Chef Ramsay's cookbooks. She also got to pick someone to come with her on her spa day, and chose Russell. For punishment, Jillian and Trev had to remain behind at Hell's Kitchen and do laundry duty - prep, iron and starch all the tablecloths and also do Chef Ramsay's jackets.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Even though he was delighted with the evening's performance, Chef Ramsay asked everyone to come a consensus on two chefs to nominate for elimination. Trev and Russell were both nominated based on their performances on their respective stations and also communication issues. Eliminated: Nobody. Chef Ramsay said that he couldn't do it because the performance had been so strong. He instead surprised all of the remaining chefs by treating them to a visit from their family members.
