15 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

Jason and Bobby know they came close to going home after the first elimination. The men don't want to lose again and the women celebrate their victory.

At 5:43am, Sous Chefs Scott and Gloria march into the dorms screaming into megaphones. The chefs jump to their feet and hurry to get dressed. They meet Chef Ramsay behind Hell's Kitchen. He wants them to see the food they wasted from the night before. A garbage truck pulls up and Ramsay orders them to dig through the trash.

The contestants jump in, and shovel waste with their bare hands. Chef Ramsay tells them to stop and orders them back to the stairs. He shows them they wasted thousands of dollars in food, and they need to care about their actions. He sends them off to get showered.

The chefs regroup and Ramsay offers up the first challenge of the day. Chef Ramsay demonstrates how to properly prepare halibut by cutting the fish into perfect 6 ounce portions. Scott and Gloria bring the teams their fish, and Ramsay gives the chefs twenty minutes to cut as many of the six-ounce, Ramsay-approved pieces as they can.

Petrozza takes the lead in cutting. The men finish with an excess of time. The women hope to take it slow and do it right, and utilize the full twenty minutes.
