Season 3 Contestant
Dinner Service: The second part of the Blue Team's punishment is that they have to run and get a lobster from the tank every time one of Bonnie's lobster salad specials is ordered for both kitchens.
Winners: Red Team
Losers: Blue Team
Nominees for Elimination: the Blue Team considers either Josh (worst overall) or Brad (worst that night) with Melissa, who is definitely going to be nominated. But once they return, Chef Ramsay doesn't ask them to state their decision, but instead eliminates the person of his own choice.
This episode marks the first time Chef Ramsay has eliminated an aspiring chef prior to nominations for elimination.
Reward Challenge: Prepare three original dishes using as the main ingredient lobster. The winning Team takes part in a photo shoot for In Touch magazine with Chef Ramsay. The losing team must sort out Hell's Kitchen's trash bins for recyclable waste.
Winning Team: Red Team - 2
Losing Team: Blue Team - 1
Josh was asked by Chef Ramsay to sit out on this challenge to even up the Teams.
Chef Ramsay: (when Melissa's scallops are too thin) Pass it back to Chef Melissa, the ****ing gremlin! Everything she touches she screws! There you go.
Melissa: Sorry, guys.
Chef Ramsay: Hey, and madam, this is not our first night.
Melissa: Yes, Chef. No, Chef.
Chef Ramsay: 'Yes Chef, no Chef.' ****ing gremlin.
Josh: (on running to get lobsters for both kitchens) Tonight in Hell's Kitchen I was the lobster bitch.
Bonnie: Whenever you line up in front of Chef Ramsay, there's always nerves, because you never know what's going to happen. He was standing next to something that looked like a piano that was covered up, and I was going, 'What's going on, are we going to have to sing about food?'
Bonnie: (to Jen) Meeting, in your room. Let's go. (to Melissa) Not you, bitch! (Rock laughs)
Chef Ramsay: With Melissa, she's very assertive, and she sounds like a leader, but unfortunately, she doesn't cook like a leader.
Chef Ramsay: (to Bonnie) You look distraught. What's the matter?
Bonnie: Chef, I hate killing lobsters, I cry every time.
Rock: So do the lobsters.
Original International Air Dates:
Czech Republic: October 7, 2009 on Barrandov
Julia: (on the photoshoot) We did, like Charlie's Angels...
The three girls were arranged in sexy poses around Chef Ramsay, which created a look reminiscent of the hit '70s TV show Charlie's Angels.
