Aired: 4/30/13

In the dorms after dinner service, Barret is beating himself up for his poor performance. He vows to turn it around. The women are feeling cocky after the men's dismal night, but Nedra warns them to stay humble.

The next morning in the dining room, Chef Ramsay announces the steak challenge. The chefs have 30 minutes to prepare five different cuts of beef by creating a unique sauce or rub. All dishes must be presented to Chef Ramsay medium rare.

Cyndi and Jon are the first to face off with the porterhouse. She presents a wild mushroom-dusted steak. Jon's dish has a blackberry sauce. Both deliver a perfect medium rare, but Chef Ramsay gives the edge to Jon.

Nedra and Susan go head-to-head with Zach on the filet. His dish is cooked to perfection, while Nedra's raspberry chipotle sauce is delectable. They both get a point, but the men are in the lead.
