Aired: 7/18/13

The final four chefs meet Chef Ramsay in the dining room. The morning's competition involves putting together a puzzle. Cyndi and Ja'Nel are pitted against Mary and Jon, who complete the puzzle first and win - nothing.

But Chef Ramsay tells them the picture in the puzzle is the actual task. The dish is brought out to them, and they must now take part in the "Taste It, Now Make It Challenge" to re-create it in just 30 minutes.

First they must identify the protein. Cyndi and Ja'Nel think the dish uses venison, while Mary chooses bison and Jon goes with beef. They all believe the puree is butternut squash. Ja'Nel and Mary use parsnip for the diced vegetable, while Jon identifies it as celery root, and Cyndi settles on turnip. At the last minute Mary changes her protein to lamb.

When time is up, all of the contestants present their dishes to Chef Ramsay. He reveals that Cyndi and Ja'Nel both correctly chose the venison; however, they thought the puree was squash when it was actually carrot. Since Cyndi names turnip as the diced veggie, she wins the challenge.
