Season 2 Contestant
Heather burns her finger and has to go to the hospital. She comes back later and is still eligible to become the winner.
Best of the Worst: Garrett
Nominees for Elimination: The Blue Team's Tom and Giacomo. Chef Ramsay then switches Tom with Gabe.
To show them how much food they wasted, Chef Ramsay makes the contestants dig through a dumpster and makes them look at all the wasted food.
Larry left the competition because his body shut down from stress. This is not the first time anyone on Hell's Kitchen has left for health reasons. In season one, Jeff LaPoff was said in the closing credits of episode 3 that he left because he was experiencing some physical difficulty, no doubt due to the kidney stone he suffered with during his time at Hell's Kitchen.
The Reward Challenge: Both Teams have ten minutes to cut as many 10 ounce steaks as they can. Then the steaks were judged by Chef Ramsay to meet his standards. The women won with 12 steaks, while the men were close with 11 steaks. As a reward, the women go out to dinner at the Saddle Peak Lodge, which specializes in game, while the men cut all the steaks for the next dinner service.
This episode marks the first time Ramsay sent an elimination nominee back to the line and nominate another.
Chef Ramsay: (on why Gabe was eliminated) It's absolutely crucial in Hell's Kitchen to have finesse and passion. It was pretty obvious that Gabe had no passion.
Garrett: (trying to decide who to nominate for elimination) Tonight Gabe, Giacomo and Tom all equally sucked. It's like trying to decide whose **** stinks the worst.
Scott: (as Giacomo toasts nuts over a burner) Come on, Giacomo, I think at the least you know how to toss your nuts.
Garrett: (on the solidarity of the Blue Team) We need to focus on eliminating the women. You can't get to Vegas if you can't get past the women. Then we can worry about cutting each others' throats.
Larry: I didn't quit. My body quit.

Sara was not in the helicopter with the rest of the women, she was in another helicopter with the show's crew who were filming the other helo. She says she quite enjoyed being in their helicopter, since their flight included some more daring maneuvering and stunts.
