  • Episode Description
  • Chef Ramsay tests the chefs' teamwork by thrusting them into a challenge requiring them to cook three appetizers in thirty minutes in turns, with only 15 seconds to communicate in-between switching. The winning team is rewarded with a shopping spree at a cooking store, while the losing team is placed on delivery duty. Additionally, one chef suffers a minor burn to their hand during the challenge. That evening, two chefs on the winning team stay up late in the hot tub and get wasted on beer, and they end up feeling the full effects during the next day's service. During the service, one chef gets kicked out and another very much sinks their team. Chef Ramsay decides that there are no winners and has everyone make a nomination, but decides the elimination based on performance during the service. He gives the remaining chefs their black jackets, merging them into one team.moreless

    Trivia (2)

    • Rewards Challenge: Chef Ramsay wanted to test the chefs' communication, so for this challenge, he asked both teams to cook three Hell's Kitchen entrees in thirty minutes. The chefs had to pair off in turns, spending five minutes in the kitchen and then having just 15 seconds to explain to the next chef what they had and hadn't done. Reward / Punishment: The Blue Team won this challenge, due largely to the Red Team having dropped their salmon on the floor. For winning, they got to enjoy a shopping spree at Sur la Table, then ate at Melisse, a restaurant with two Michelin stars. For losing, the Red Team had to do delivery day, picking up deliveries whenever they heard the horn of the delivery truck honking.

    • Nominees for Elimination: Chef Ramsay declared that there was no winning team. He asked each chef to make their own choice for elimination, but didn't really care about the choices, asking Gail and Vinny to step forward, based on their performance during service. Eliminated: Vinny. The remaining chefs were made members of the final six, the merged black team.
