Episode Summary


The four remaining chefs are given a taste of the Savoy Grill, then told to recreate one of the dishes that they just tasted. A chef makes a bold move that doesn't pay off, while the winner of the challenge spends time with their family on a yacht. The losers are forced to clean the dorms of the detritus of past contestants. The next day, one of the losers awakes with heavy back pain that threatens to take them out of the competition. Following a near-quit, this contestant vows to push through. During the evening's dinner service, Chef Ramsay tests each chef by having them run the pass. Each of them face sabotage during their turn at the hot plate, but not all catch it. Following the service, Chef Ramsay eliminates two chefs, revealing the final two that will compete in the grand finale.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Holli and Jay become the fourth and fifth people to have never been nominated for an elimination. Jay is the first non-winner to not be nominated.

    • Rewards Challenge: In this challenge, Chef Ramsay gave the aspiring chefs a taste of the Savoy Grill by bringing some dishes that will be served there to them. They were then given 45 minutes to recreate one of those dishes by taste.

      Reward / Punishment: Holli won this challenge, just beating out Benjamin. Both made the same choices in ingredients, but Chef Ramsay felt that Holli's dish was cooked just a bit better. For winning, she got to have a day on a yacht with her son and his father. The losing chefs were made to clean up the dorms inside and out.

    • Elimination and Final Two: Since there were only four chefs left and he was cutting two, Chef Ramsay stated that he didn't want to hear any nominations, but instead asked each chef to give their reasons why they should stay. Benjamin stated that he was good technically, he bounced back during the evening's dinner service after nearly quitting, and he felt he was the best cook there. Jay stated that he'd never had a bad service, that he was consistent, super-passionate and the best choice for Chef Ramsay. Autumn noted that she had been put up numerous times for elimination, but that she had never quit and she was very resilient. Finally, Holli noted her consistency and that she had never been kicked out of service, that she'd never been nominated for elimination and she felt she was strong enough. Chef Ramsay began by eliminating Autumn. He then selected Jay as the first finalist and Holli as the second, making Benjamin the other elimination.
