Recap Image

Christina and Corey are shocked to have Jen back on the team. They were happy to be rid of her. On the men's team, Petrozza and Bobby can't figure out how Matt has managed to stay in Hell's Kitchen.

A phone call wakes the chefs up early. After getting ready, they are blindfolded and shuttled to a mystery location. When the blindfolds come off, the chefs are standing on the roof of Chef Ramsay's new Los Angeles restaurant. Ramsay gives the teams new, black trimmed jackets. They are all on one team now. Corey doesn't want to deal with Matt and Jen at the same time. Finally, Chef Ramsay gives them a glimpse at the $250,000 cash prize.

The chefs return to Hell's Kitchen for their first individual challenge. Each chef will be given a main ingredient and they are asked to put their own personalized spin on that ingredient. Matt is given veal, Christina is given sea bass, Bobby is given duck, Jen is given beef, Petrozza gets chicken, and Corey gets lobster. The chefs have 45 minutes to create something delicious and innovative. The chefs spring to action.

Matt's order passes. Chef loves Christina's dish and Petrozza's dish earns a "well done." Corey uses too little lobster for Ramsay's liking. Jen is nervous about Chef's comments, but she manages to pull it off. Bobby's duck comes up too tough.
