Aired: 6/13/13

After trading Ja'Nel to the Blue Team at the last elimination ceremony, the contestants meet Chef Ramsay in the dining room. Some are hoping to stand out, and others are focused on redeeming themselves.

The competitors learn that their next test is a Three Entrée Relay. Each team will have 30 minutes to prepare a trio of dishes from the restaurant's regular menu. But only one cook from each group can be in the kitchen at a time, and they must swap out with a teammate every five minutes - with just 15 seconds to confer.

Chef Ramsay calls Zach and Cyndi to the hot plates and tells them that they will be cooking roasted chicken, rack of lamb and halibut. Cyndi begins by breaking down the chicken and getting the lamb seared and into the oven. Zach gets off to a slow start and barely manages to start cooking before time is up.

During their turns, Susan in the Red Kitchen and Ja'Nel on the Blue Team both make headway. Mary and Jon each try to make sense of the chaos when they take over. Cyndi and Zach complete round four, followed by another five minutes for Susan and Ja'Nel.
