It’s down to three men against three women and the game is on. Chef Ramsay wants them to take their skills to the next level by creating one appetizer and two entrees using only leftovers. Both teams are given the same ingredients to work with and are given thirty minutes. While the men get right to work, the women stall (mostly because of Bonnie) trying to decide what dishes to make. While Bonnie & Brad shine, Josh & Jen fail to impress. It comes down to Julia & Rock to get a win for their team. Rock pulls off a win for his team with a higher quality dish.
The women’s punishment will be dull just like their performance in today’s challenge. They’ll spend the day cleaning the restaurant & unloading the deliveries for the restaurant. The men, on the other hand, get the opportunity to evoke a little revenge on Chef Ramsay by way of paintball. It’ll be the three guys against Chef Ramsay and they’re pretty excited about it. Like Josh said, “Any employee would love to shoot their boss … not real shooting!”
The men go into paintball a cocky trio but Chef Ramsay is a bit of a paintball pro and takes them out one by one. Meanwhile, Bonnie screwed up the entire delivery by not checking it before the trucks left. Tonight’s service must go on, though, and both teams will come up with their own menus: three appetizers, three entrees, and three desserts. The teams only have an hour to prepare their menu and get back for dinner service.
Customers will be able to choose from both the blue and the red menu. Right off the bat, the women have orders pouring in while the men wait around for someone to choose their menu. Thirty minutes into service, the men begin getting orders but appetizers are served and sent back as quickly as they went. The women move ahead, serving their entrees first and despite her team’s resistance to her ideas, Julia’s strip steak is the most popular item ordered.
Chef Ramsay screams in Josh’s ear that he can’t cook & his team leaves him in the weeds while he tries to get some lamb out to his customers. He gets it together & manages to catch up with his entrees. However, dishes continue to get sent back on the blue side while Bonnie tries to cook in the red kitchen without the gas on. Wow.
Not surprisingly, there is no winning team but Julia is called out as the one person who was consistent and impressive. She will be safe tonight and can put up one member of her team for elimination. The men will have to agree on someone to put up. Julia chooses to nominate Bonnie while the men agree to put up Brad and NOT Josh. In the end, Bonnie is asked to stay while Brad leaves Hell’s Kitchen.
Stay tuned as I’ll be talking to Brad this week about his time in Hell.
