Aired: 5/13/13

Chef Ramsay has just sent Amanda home, but he's not done yet. Cyndi, Zach and Barret are still on the chopping block. He decides Barret is in over his head and eliminates him. Now just ten chefs remain.

The next day Chef Ramsay asks one player from each team to enter a glass booth containing hundreds of pieces of paper blowing around inside. Each slip contains an ingredient, and the contestants have 45 seconds to gather as many as possible for their team.

Susan gets in the booth to gather ingredients for the women, and Anthony represents the men. Now each player must create one delicious and visually stunning dish using at least five ingredients from the papers that Susan and Anthony have grabbed for their teams.

Chef Ramsay's guest judge is Jennifer Garcia, senior writer for People magazine. After looking at all five dishes from both groups, they will choose the three best-looking plates from each team and taste only those selections. The chef on the winning team with the best dish will be featured in People magazine. They pick Ja'Nel, Cyndi and Mary for the Red Team and Anthony, Zach and John for the Blue.
