  • Trivia

    • Ejected During Service: Lacey. She proved completely incapable of performing on the meat station, leading Ramsay to lose patience and tell her to take off her jacket and go home.

      Losing Team: Red Team. Following Lacey's ejection, the Blue Team rallied and completed a full service. The Red Team was shut down before they could finish service.

      Nominees for Elimination: Chef Ramsay asked the Red Team to come to a group decision on two chefs to be nominated for elimination. They were ultimately unable to come to a consensus, with Carol, Andrea and LA all nominated for elimination. Disappointed with their lack of teamwork, Chef Ramsay asked all three to step forward.

      Eliminated: LA, as Chef Ramsay felt that she was lacking in both leadership skills and creativity.
