Episode Summary


A fantasy birthday celebration is the order of the day for the remaining aspiring chefs. The chefs cook for a sweet 16 party, but the mood in Hell's Kitchen is anything but sweet. Team members on both sides continue to suffer infighting. After a challenge, one Team is rewarded with a day of go-kart racing, while the other spends time decorating with an overly flamboyant party-planner. At dinner service, trouble erupts when food of both the undercooked and overcooked variety is sent out. At the episode's elimination ceremony, one chef breaks ranks in a surprising switch.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Shayna was the first contestant from this season to get a friendly farewell from Chef Ramsay.

    • For a second service this season, Jean Philippe doesn't wear a tie, but unlike on Family Night, Chef Ramsay doesn't have to force him to remove it first.

    • This is the second night in a row that Chef Ramsay decides there is no losing team.

    • Reward Challenge: Both teams had 25 minutes and $100 to shop for items to make 1 appetizer and 2 entrees. Once they returned to the Hell's Kitchen, they had 45 minutes to prepare all 3 dishes and then serve them to Chef Ramsay, Melissa, and her mother. Whichever team had the most winning dishes, wins.

      Reward: The Blue Team is treated to a day of Kart Racing. Later, they go to "Simon LA" and sample American classic sweets like carmel corn and cotton candy transformed into gourmet treats.

      Punishment: The Red Team must decorate Hell's Kitchen for Melissa's 'Sweet 16' party.

    • While on the chopping block, Matt tells Chef Ramsay that he will prove to him he belongs in Hell's Kitchen if he can be sent over to the Red Team. After the elimination, Ramsay informs Matt that beginning tomorrow (the next episode) he will indeed be joining the Red Team.

    • Best of the Worst: None

      Nominees for Elimination: The Blue Team's Matt and the Red Team's Shayna and Rosann.

      Eliminated: Shayna

  • QUOTES (17)

    • Christina: (lampooning the designer's affected speech in an interview) Francisco and I really aren't 'friend-ilicious'.
      Francisco: (enthusiastic) Is this fun to work with?
      Christina: Nope.

    • Chef Ramsay: Shayna has a big heart, but at times I felt her heart wasn't here, it was back home with her newborn baby. She made far too many simple mistakes, and that's why she's going back to something she's good at: changing diapers.

    • Corey: I think Louross is probably attracted to me, which makes him an easy target. I'm gonna do whatever it takes to win Hell's Kitchen.

    • Jen: (seeing Melissa's mother return) Here she comes, the Wicked Witch of the West Coast!

    • Bobby: (in an interview segment) Matt's definitely full of crap. Crapola. Look at his face. Look like he has **** his pants while he was standing there.

    • Chef Ramsay: You can only hide for so long.
      Matt: I'm not hiding, Chef. I'm not hiding at all. I wasn't trying to hide, Chef.
      Chef Ramsay: You're doing a ****ing good job of hiding.

    • Narrator: Thanks to Chef Ramsay, the birthday girl has finally received a properly cooked steak. And thanks to Matt, her mother's fish...
      Bobby: This is raw. This is ****ing raw! Look at this. It's cold.

    • Chef Ramsay: Matt! Look at me-- wake up!
      Matt: I am up.

    • Chef Ramsay: Right, mush! Mush is mush is mush! Halibut's dry!

    • Petrozza: (in an interview segment) Matt's hanging by a thread with the fire of hell, like, looming underneath him and he doesn't even realize it.

    • Bobby: (in an interview segment) I'm not losing another service if I have to singlehandedly cook it myself.

    • Corey: (in an interview segment) Shayna. She was annoying me. She was trying to be like the party planner's assistant. Perhaps she should go back to party planning.

    • Francisco: We're going to make this room 'sparkle-licious.'

    • Ben: (in an interview segment) Matty's in left field. You just gotta light a fire underneath to get him to, you know -- get him to move a little bit.

    • Matt: (regarding the Blue Team) No one gives a ****. I mean, they're a bunch of **** and I'm sick of dealing with 'em.

    • Chef Ramsay: You're cooking for teenagers -- finicky and mummy's little girl.

    • Christina: (in an interview segment) If I've got book smarts and I intimidate you, that's kind of too bad.
