8 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

Aired: 5/24/13

When dinner service last ended, Chef Ramsay had asked for a volunteer from the women's team to join the men's side. They all want to switch over and pull a name from a hat, but that solution is unacceptable to Chef Ramsay, who demands they put some thought into picking a chef to trade teams.

Nedra once again volunteers, but the Blue Team is less than thrilled to have her as their new teammate. They consider it sabotage.

The next morning, Chef Ramsay meets the contestants in the dining room for the International Challenge. He introduces models representing eight countries, and they each stand by a gift box wrapped in that nation's colors.

The players spin a wheel to determine which country's cuisine they will prepare. Mary and Jon go first, and the pointer shows Indian. The model opens the gift box to reveal the ingredients they will cook with, including chickpeas, basmati rice and lentils.
