Episode Summary

HK5: 15 Chefs Compete

Following the disaster of the previous night's dinner service, the aspiring chefs are presented with what they wasted from the night before, but dodge the bullet thanks to the arrival of some fresh scallops. The Blue Team and Red Team compete in a challenge to properly shuck as many scallops as possible. In an extremely close finish, the Blue Team takes the prize. They win a day trip by helicopter to Catalina Island, but one chef is forced to travel by ferry due to his weight and ends up missing out on the reward. The Red Team endures the punishment of spending the day setting up a "raw bar" for dinner service, but one chef irritates the others by sitting out the punishment due to exhaustion. Just before the evening's dinner service, a chef endures a grueling ankle injury, but makes the decision to tough out the service. Despite a number of snags, both kitchens complete a successful service, with the winning team being the one that finished first. Two members of the losing team are nominated for elimination due to their poor attitude and lousy performance, but are given a reprieve due to a surprise announcement.
