Recap Image

Aired: 3/12/13

As the Hell's Kitchen premiere continues, Gina tells the medic that her mind is wandering and she just needs to relax. Back in the dorms, she focuses on herself while the rest of the Red Team preps for the impending dinner service. Meanwhile, in the Blue Kitchen, the men are working hard, but Jeremy's lack of experience is starting to show.

Before the doors open, Chef Ramsay gives the competitors a pep talk. He explains that he isn't looking for perfection but that he does expect each and every one of them to give their best. With that, he tells them that he is guaranteeing a complete dinner service at which every customer is fed. He also welcomes back Maitre d' Jean-Philippe after a three-year absence.

In addition to the classic menu, Chef Ramsay has added a tableside appetizer of ale-steamed mussels, which will be served by Amanda in the Red Section and Christian in the Blue Section. Back in the kitchen, Gina dives into the appetizers. Even though her teammates are concerned that she is flipping the scallops too many times, Chef Ramsay compliments her on the app.

Despite a strong start, Gina's second batch of scallops is cold and overcooked. Her next attempt comes out hard, and Chef Ramsay throws her out of the kitchen.
