|Aftermath of Elimination talk
||As the teams go upstairs to the dorms the Blue team gather each member of the team as they say a good night, we surely showed our potential and let’s keep it that way. Mark then however would go out of his way and say that the service came to be so good because of him. This then caused Sanjay and Mark to mouth of too each other as guys like P.J, Aron, Diego, Nemo and Bruce tried to calm down Sanjay and Mark. Kevin then said a good night just turned into warfare. The Red team who just came back in their dorms gathers on the sofa as Jasmine says that tonight they ****ed up big time. Kristal says that now that Sue has left she feels like the entire Red team is trying to bury her. Jasmine then tells Kristal that she has to stop being such a big crybaby otherwise Chef Ramsey will kick her ass out of Hell’s Kitchen. However then Rina gets in the face of Kristal and says this charade that she is playing by acting all pretty will not work against Chef Ramsay, because Chef Ramsay is here to find out the next Head Chef at Rotisserie Laurier while you Kristal, think this is some kind of joke like America’s Next Top Model. With this said a lot of tension came between the Red team as Kristal packed up her things and slept on the sofa in the dorm. The Blue team went to sleep calmly as they had the best service yet. Meanwhile in the Red team’s room tension started to melt between Daniele and Rina who mouthed off to each other as if they were little children. Daniele told Rina to shut the **** up because Kristal is not who they think she is, she might be all pretty and all that but she can damn sure can cook when push comes to shove. With this said Daniele just goes to sleep by covering her ears with her pillow as both teams finally are asleep around 1 am.
||The chefs were soundly asleep around 5:30am when Chef Ramsay over the audio system shouted “GET THE **** UP” As the chefs still dressed liked they were about to go to a slumber party wake up and first thing head to the kitchen where Chef Ramsay was waiting on them. Ramsay told the teams they look like they did not get enough sleep. Today’s team challenge, he uncovered some French bread from underneath the table and told the contestants that they will need to make a French dish out of this wholesome French bread right now, they have 35 minutes to produce a dish of French style. With this said the teams split off into their kitchens as it looks like the Blue Team’s P.J is making French bread served with a stew. P.J says to that French bread can come as more of a side that anything else really so having the stew and dipping the bread is what the dish is about. Sanjay rolls out the bread and makes a low fat French Indian rotti served with spiced chicken. With 20 minutes gone some amazing dishes are being produced as Chef Ramsay wonders both kitchens. Chef Ramsay counts down the final 5 minutes as the chefs are making any last minute arrangements to their dishes, Time is up. Chef Ramsay says that judging this dish will be Rotisserie Laurier chefs two of them to be exact. As first up Mark from the Blue team goes against Taya of the Red team. Mark’s French burger receives an adequate state as the chef says that his bread seems a bit to moist and also the bottom has been burnt. Taya cooks French fries served with a burger, the other chef from Rotisserie Laurier says that the combination is brilliant and he would have that on the menu at the restaurant with that said one point goes to the Red team. Next up is Diego from the Blue team and Christina from the Red team. Christian presents her French style of noodles served with the bread which Ramsey produced. The Rotisserie chef says it was a decent effort but the noodles are undercooked. Diego received a good reaction with his French bread styled taco as one point went to the Blue team. Throughout the next couple of minutes chefs from both teams would get points as Kristal would score a good reaction on her French toast served with eggs. She got the point against P.J who cooked his stew. It is a tie 7-7 as the last dishes to be judged are Kevin’s Iconic French Risotto and Daniele’s French bread biscuit. With this judging the Rotisserie Laurier chef tastes both but in the end he gives the winning point to Kevin and the Blue team as he says that tasted absolutely delicious while the biscuit was too crunchy. The Blue team wins as the Red team’s Ailyah tells Daniele that she had the effort but it didn’t pay off in the end. Some members of the Red team are disappointed in Daniele (Rina and Jasmine show signs of disappointment towards Daniele)
||Chef Ramsay tells the Blue team that in honor of the French team challenge tomorrow they will be hosting a “French Night” at Hell’s Kitchen, a taste of what running Rotisserie Laurier will be like. Chef Ramsay tells the Blue team that their reward today will be going to the circus with me, to see a famous French act. Meanwhile the red team will have the honor of cleaning up Hell’s Kitchen head to toe enjoy. As the Blue team gets ready to go to the circus with Chef Ramsay the Red team are trapped in Hell’s Kitchen with Sous Chef Andi and James the Maitre d. The Red team is forced to vacuum, wash, scrub and keep Hell’s Kitchen spotless for tomorrow’s service. While cleaning up the kitchen several members of the Red team talk back and argue with each other as these feuds are not going to a rest. Kristal and Rina have a brewing rivalry all of a sudden as Rina tells Kristal, that if she is afraid of getting her hands dirty than she should just leave. Meanwhile the Blue team arrives at the circus as they meet Chef Ramsay inside the tent that will be hosting and showcasing some of the most amazing acts, the performers are all from French/Canadian-French descent and after the act they will teach the contestants a few things about performing. The Blue team witness an amazing 45 minute act as after the act they meet the performers down in the arena as Chef Ramsay tells the performers and the guys involved with the circus if they could teach a few things to the Blue team. The Blue team members then suit up as acrobats and are willing to pull off a team act. With this comes hanging onto pieces of rope 50 foot high from the ground as some of the chefs have a fear of heights. After the acts though the Blue team did have some fun as the day concludes with the Chefs and Chef Ramsay having a lunch and dinner as they prepare a toast to the red team who are draining it out and have been cleaning Hell’s Kitchen for about 4 hours. The Blue team comes back at Hell’s Kitchen around 7pm where they see that the Red teams are still cleaning for tomorrow’s service. The Blue teams then prep a few things as they get ready for sleep. Meanwhile some Red team members are now fed up with looking after Kristal and now Daniele has been the one who backs up Kristal as they are somewhat of friends.
||As the sun rises and then falls again the next day, Chef Ramsay meets the chefs at the kitchen as he says tonight’s service is an all French night so to fit in with this, he gives the Blue team a brand new outfit for tonight’s service. The uniform consists of a Blue and Black strip chefs jacket as well as a Black chef’s hat. The Red team also get awarded a special outfit as there outfit is Red and Black striped jacket with a black chef hat. The chefs then go back upstairs as they quickly change out of their regular uniforms and place on the special French outfits which are made for this service. Chef Ramsey also gives the Sous chefs their own unique uniforms consisting of White and black strip with a black and white striped hat. Ramsey tells Nikita and P.J that they will be Assistant Maitre d’s here tonight so they get changed into suits. And Chef Ramsay’s uniform consists of all whites with a white jacket and also a white hat. Chef Ramsey tells James to open up Hell’s Kitchen as the customers come into the dining room ready for the French service about to take place. The first order comes out as he reads out “2 wellingtons, 2 French breads, crusted cut and also garnished with tomatoes juice” The chefs get ready in the Red Kitchen. With this service looking to be a good one, the Red team send out their appetizers slowly as Chef Ramsay’s outburst is always a quick one; he tells Christina why the hell she is stacking up so many wellingtons when there was only a two order meal. He tells Christina to start over again on the wellingtons. Meanwhile in the Blue kitchen things aren’t shaping up to be good as Diego blows his first appetizer as Chef Ramsey says “Look at this, he can’t even do anything, wake Up!” With the outburst Diego then goes gives his wellington to Chef Ramsay as he sees that it has been cooked raw. Chef Ramsay tells Diego that he cannot serve Raw meat so he has to start over again. Meanwhile Mark’s talking is making Kevin look really as he screws up on his garnishing over the wellingtons’ as Chef Ramsay tells Mark that he should shut the **** up and just cook. Mark then talks again with his big mouth which results in Chef Ramsay telling Mark “Listen, I know you may be stupid or something but when I tell you something I expect you to LISTEN, SO LISTEN….. LISTEN…. **** FACE!”
With the enragement of Chef Ramsay this keeps Mark quiet but when he gives him a Raw wellington he tells everybody from the Blue team to come and feel it as they all point out that the wellington is Raw. Mark then tries to serve another batch as he gives this batch to Chef Ramsay who tells Mark that he has burnt and over cooked it, the request was at Medium-Rare but he has made it just simply well. Chef Ramsay then tells Mark that if he cannot serve wellington he should **** off back to the dorms so he gives him one more chance to prove himself. Meanwhile in the dining room, P.J is having it at ease being a Maitre d as Nikita is finding it hard to push out tickets. Chef Ramsay from across the room yells out at Nikita who comes back to give him roughly written tickets, Ramsay rips then apart as she tells Nikita to go and write them down again. Meanwhile in the Red kitchen Rina and Sous Chef Andi get into an argument as Andi says that Rina is nothing more than just a person who talks a lot. Andi tells Rina to shut up. Kristal then laughs at Rina because she deserved what she got. When Chef Ramsay comes back into the Red kitchen he finds that Kristal cooked the wrong beef and that Chef Ramsay tells Kristal to do it again. Kristal then cooks her wellington as the main course in which we are up to but Chef Ramsay says there Raw!
Chef Ramsay then tells Kristal to **** off to the dorm. Daniele then screws up on her wellington as she gets a mouthful from Ramsay who says “Listen, I just told Kristal the same thing does not make me do the same thing to you!” Daniele replies by saying “Yes, Chef” As we go 1 hour and 30 minutes into service there have been a lot of mistakes made by three chefs which include Mark, Kristal and Daniele a fourth is added Kevin makes his meat to salty as Chef Ramsay says that the wellington is so salty he could not even touch the sight of that. Kevin then gets his first mistake which makes Chef Ramsay mad. With the service winding down, Christina makes another mistake by putting garlic in the wrong pan and also burning scallops. With this Chef Ramsay’s chances of a perfect service vanquishes.
|| Chef Ramsay meets the contestants back in the kitchen as he says the service we managed to get the dishes out, but the amount of food which was bought back was horrendous. He then says that at the end of the night there was no winning team and that both teams will have to pick 2 people up for nomination tonight. With this the teams head back to the dorms where the Blue team nominated Mark and Kevin because they were the two weak links here tonight, with that said Mark unloads on the Blue team and says that none of them know how to cook except for him, he is the one who carried this team he is the Coach, Captain and the Quarterback that is driving the blue team where it needs to be. Kevin however accepts that he might be going home tonight. Meanwhile in the Red team’s discussion they choose to pick Daniele and Kristal because they seemed to cause the most harm in their kitchen tonight, as the teams break off back to Chef Ramsay, the Red team begins to question the skill of both Kristal and Daniele as Rina starts to argue with Kristal over the fact that they did poorly on the service tonight.
||As the teams make their way back to give the nominations to Chef Ramsay, he is waiting there for the teams as they are in line. Chef Ramsay says to Aron who the Blue team’s two eliminations are. Aron says the first nominee is Mark, because he just couldn’t perform out here tonight and that’s why he is been nominated. Ramsay said to Aron who the second nominee was and he Aron said Kevin because he seemed to make a lot of mistakes even for a man of his experience. Chef Ramsay then turned his attention on the Red team as he told Taya who the first nomination was and why, Taya told Chef Ramsay that the Red teams first nominee was Daniele because she made heaps of mistakes in the kitchen tonight and that she wasn’t suited to running the menus and if you can’t cook French food then how will you run the restaurant. Ramsay tells who the second nominee is and that person is Kristal, which was chosen by the Red team because she got confused tonight and also had no place in the kitchen, she literary didn’t know what she was doing and is failing to make the team a unit. Chef Ramsay then tells Mark, Kevin, Daniele and Kristal to come out and step forward. Chef Ramsay then looked confused as he said that there should be one more person up here and that person is Christina. Chef then told Mark why he should stay in Hell’s Kitchen. Mark told Chef that he has the mental state to be here and that he can improve on himself and not makes as many mistakes as he did tonight. But Ramsay says even for an executive you made some amateur mistakes. Chef tells Daniele why she should stay. Daniele said that she can improve on herself and that Chef Ramsay is looking for a person with excellent food knowledge and that’s why she should stay because she can improve and eventually impress him. Ramsay says but having knowledge won’t just be the factor for you, you need to cook to impress me. Chef Ramsay then told Kevin why he should stay. Kevin said that he has the experience and that this is just one of those nights where a chef makes continuous mistakes. Ramsay says that he should have known better and now his ass might be out of here. Chef tells Kristal why she should stay. Kristal says that she can learn and improve as well and that she has a passion for food like no other chef in the competition does. Chef Ramsay says but you managed to **** up the wellington, does that seem like passion to you? Kristal says with every service she can improve. Ramsey then tells Christina says that she can learn and observe and then learn how to be a cook and a great one and that she is here to win the competition and become the chef at his restaurant. Chef Ramsay is left with a hard decision. Chef Ramsay says after what I saw here tonight… Christina, take your jacket off and leave Hell’s Kitchen. Christina leaves as the four other chefs sigh a relief. Christina then thanks Chef Ramsay for the opportunity as she is sad that she is leaving but at the same time enjoyed the experience. Chef Ramsay then says boy that was hard, but I am not done yet. The chefs then go from relieved to intense as Ramsay says Kristal, Daniele, Mark and Kevin take your ****ing jackets off. With this the other chefs in line think that all four are going home. Chef Ramsay then says Mark and Kevin, give your jackets to Daniele and Kristal, Daniele and Kristal you give your Red jackets to Mark and Kevin, if you guys don’t want to get along with you teams then what a better way than to swap you. Now Daniele and Kristal you’ll be on the Blue team and Mark and Kevin you will be on the Red, goodnight and good luck. The contestants comment on being traded to their news teams as Kristal says she feels relieved and can’t wait to show the Blue team what she is made of. Daniele says now that she is Blue; the red team won’t know what they just gave away. Mark says now it is time to shape up this joint and become a Red team member, the Coach, Captain and Quarterback bleeding the blood for the Red team. Kevin says he thought he would be going home, all four would be going home but he feels relieved that he gets a second chance along with the other three. Kristal and Daniele go back to the dorms happy as they have been traded for Mark and Kevin who plan on re-shaping the Red team.
|Chef Ramsay’s reason
||“When it came to cooking in the Kitchen Christina was good but not good enough, if Christina burnt scallops at her house, she would burn her own house down…”
||Next time on Hell’s Kitchen with new beginnings for four chefs will it come at a cost or will they be partying with their new teams and also four chefs on the Blue team do things that no one else can see. What will happen at service when Chef Ramsay blows up… what will happen on an all new Hell’s Kitchen?
