5 Chefs Compete, Pt.3

Recap Image

Aired: 7/11/13

Since Chef Ramsay decided not to eliminate anyone after the last dinner service, all five finalists remain in the competition. Following a late night of open conversation, the contestants get a little rest but then head downstairs the next morning, energetic as ever.

Chef Ramsay presents them with a gourmet burger and explains that they each must create their own version for the next challenge. He brings in Jean-Philippe, who will be the guest judge for the competition along with some of his closest friends from local restaurants. Each contestant will have 30 minutes to prepare ten burgers for the culinary professionals to sample.

Mary chooses to make a short rib burger, while Cyndi opts for a Wagyu beef burger. Susan goes another way and creates a "healthy" selection. Jon decides to make a Vegas-themed Roman burger, and Ja'Nel goes light with a salmon burger. As service begins, the cooks hurry to complete their dishes so they can spend some valuable face time with the judges. Both Susan and Mary try to charm the guests.

When the scores are tallied, Susan is in last place, and Jon wins the challenge with almost 40% of the vote. As his reward, Jon wins a trip to the spa for a green tea facial and hot stone massage. He is allowed to choose one of his fellow competitors to join him, so he invites Cyndi along for the day.
