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.
Gordon calls for the ladies first. They end up with forty-one approved portions. Chef Ramsay counts the men's and they also have forty-one. Chef calls for one representative from each team to choose a perfect six-ounce fillet. The closest to six ounces will win the challenge. Corey represents the women, Ben represents the men.
Ben's is 5.9 ounces and Corey's is 4.8 ounces. Corey is disappointed that she let her team down. The woman must prepare for the next night's service. The men are rewarded with a trip on a one-hundred foot super yacht.
The men enjoy a day of drinking, lobster lunches and caviar. The women however, prepare the fish for the night. Jen puts the blame squarely on Corey. On the boat, Gordon gives the men advice about winning the next service.
Sharon seems lost in the kitchen during the night's preparations. Chef Ramsay asks Petrozza the five menu items. When he can't get beyond the first one, Gordon throws him out. Petrozza's station will remain unmanned until Petrozza can prove he knows the menu. In addition, because of the first night's disaster, Chef Ramsay is sending Craig and Rosann into the front to be assistant maître d'.
Ramsay corners Petrozza in the storage room and asks him to first do the desserts. Petrozza immediately fumbles. Chef sends him back upstairs to memorize the list. Bobby comes to Petrozza's aid and tries to support his teammate. Bobby gets Petrozza to the kitchen and Petrozza recites the menu to Chef Ramsay. Petrozza nails it and Ramsay sends him to his station.
Hell's Kitchen opens its doors. Craig gives orders to the Blue Team's kitchen. Rosann however hasn't given any to her team. Chef rejects Blue Team orders, and Bobby and Jason begin to get heated.
Forty-five minutes in and the women get their first order. Around the same time, the men get their orders out. Chef Ramsay rejects one of Jason's scallops, and Ben is becoming frustrated. Petrozza's beef order is cold and the Blue Team starts to fall apart.
An hour in and no entrees have left the Blue kitchen. Craig accidentally hits a patron's head with a leg. Jean-Phillipe can only shake his head.
Chef Ramsay is pressuring the Red Team to get their dishes out properly. Ramsay moves to the Blue Team, and their entrees finally leave the kitchen. The customers seem happy with both team's meals.
Rosann tells Chef Ramsay that she has several tickets that she has been holding on to. She did not want to overload the kitchen. Some tables have been waiting in the Red section for over two hours.
Communication on the Blue team is falling apart and it brings the kitchen to a halt.
The Red Team is having similar problems, and Chef Ramsay takes aim at Sharon. Ramsay becomes fed up with the chefs, and shuts down Hell's Kitchen.
Chef Ramsay tells the women that they are the losers and the men barely made it. Ramsay crowns Corey "Best of the Worst," and sends the women back to the dorms to choose two for elimination.
Later, the Red Team stands before Ramsay. Corey offers Christina up because she feels that Christina doesn't respect her talents. Corey then nominates Jen, saying Jen distracts her from possibly winning the prize. Christina defends that she is intelligent, and just wants a person to be honest with her. Jen rambles on about why she should stay.
Chef Ramsay takes a moment, and tells everyone that there's a chef on the Red Team that he doesn't believe in. He calls up Sharon and sends Jen and Christina back to the line. Chef Ramsay sends Sharon home.
