  • Episode Description
  • The remaining six chefs compete in the twelve episode of the eighth season of Hell's Kitchen. The chefs are challenged to each serve a signature lunch out of a food truck for a group of businesspeople. The winning chef receives a makeover from two top celebrities, while the losers are made to fix up the outside of Hell's Kitchen and then clean up the food trucks. Dinner service turns out to be something of a disaster. Chef Ramsay becomes so infuriated that he says he's going to damage if he stays, so he leaves Hell's Kitchen. He eventually returns, but kicks out anyone who messes up. When it comes time for the elimination, one chef makes a passionate plea that fails to have any effect.moreless

    • Chef Ramsay: Gail's performance at Hell's Kitchen was up and down, up and down and up and down. Roller coasters are great for amusement parks, not kitchens.

    • Gail: (in her exit interview) I leave here with great memories, new friends, fantastic clothes and a great haircut.

    • Chef Ramsay: Maybe black's not your color. Maybe you shouldn't be here.

    • Chef Ramsay: Tonight was the most frustrating time I've ever had in the history of Hell's Kitchen and I feel really let down.

    • Russell: (in an interview segment) Trevor, I got two words for you: go home. I don't think Trevor could cook toast, let alone a steak.

    Trivia (2)

    • Rewards Challenge: For this challenge, Chef Ramsay assigned each of the five aspiring chefs their own food truck and asked them to each create a power lunch for a group of eighty high-class businesspeople. They had one hour to get ready and the winner would be one whose dish was the most well-rated. Nona made a chicken salad and bacon sandwich, Jillian created a herb chicken with mixed vegetables, Trev went for penne pasta with sausage, Russell served a grilled octopus and saffron aiole sandwich and Gail made a skirt steak salad with mangoes and candied pecans. Reward / Punishment: Gail one the challenge with 40% of the businesspeople preferring her dish over all others. Nona came in second place with 38% rating her dish as their favorite. 60% said that Russell's octopus was the worst dish. For winning, Gail got to travel to Beverly Hills for a makeover by Jose Eber, then back to Hollywood where the stylist Cojo created a new look for her. For losing, the remaining aspiring chefs had to clean and fix up the outside of Hell's Kitchen, and also clean the food trucks.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Chef Ramsay was very disappointed with the service, walking out at one point and kicking out two chefs towards the end of service. He asked the final five to nominate two chefs for elimination. Gail was nominated for not communicating and being in her own bubble. Trev was nominated for being an absolute disaster on the meat station. Eliminated: Gail.
