Recap Image

Chef Ramsay "welcomes" the twelve contestants to the newly-redesigned Hell's Kitchen restaurant without any touchy-feely greetings. He immediately orders them to each cook their own signature dishes. The men and women get to work under the gun, frantically putting together the food.

Chef makes fun of Vinnie's snapper and calls it a disappointment. Then he questions whether Joanna can really cook. Joanna sips her bellini cocktail concoction as Chef Ramsay labels her dish dry. Rock introduces his pan-seared scallops with gnocchi, confessing that he used frozen pasta. Chef Ramsay likes the concept of the dish but is disappointed in the execution. Rock is deflated.

Josh wants his food to exude sex, but unfortunately his foie gras is raw and too salty. Does that describe his techniques in bed as well? Bonnie presents an update on a cheese course, and Chef Ramsay limits his complaints because she's new to the kitchen. Bonnie still thinks he's "kinda hot."

Eddie and Brad both feature scallops, so Chef makes them taste each other's dishes. Although Chef Ramsay considers both meals under par, he at least agrees with the way Eddie reviewed Brad's sauce. Jen reluctantly admits that the vanilla crepe with peach schnapps is hers because she knows it will be bad.
