Recap Image

The women are ecstatic that Melissa was moved to the Blue Team. Melissa feels the same way, and promises the men that she will never sabotage them. Rock isn't swayed by her niceties. The Red Team calls a meeting. They are convinced that without the "bully" they will do well. While hanging out in the dorms, Jen lets it slip that she has restaurant experience and is not merely a pastry chef. Rock is shocked, but impressed by her gamesmanship.

Chef Ramsay assembles everyone in the kitchen the next morning for a challenge. They will be forced to come up with creative ways to use lobster. Julia is worried because she's never even eaten one. Bonnie is afraid to boil a live lobster. "I hate being responsible for killing something," she explains.

Since Josh couldn't tell the difference between a lobster and a scallop in the taste-off, he will be sitting out the challenge. He can advise his team, but cannot touch the lobster. So it's three against three. Each chef will have to pull a live crustacean from the tank. Then the teams will have one hour to create three dishes. Bonnie overcame her fear and dumped her lobster in the boiling water.

Josh instructs Melissa, as Jen oversees Julia for the Red Team. After the hour, Bonnie presents a grilled lobster salad with baked apples. Chef is impressed because she grilled the lobster well. Melissa has a citrus herb salad with poached lobster. Chef likes the freshness of the fruit, but the lobster isn't cooked properly. Bonnie gets the point.
