Recap Image

After eliminations, Vanessa is scared she won't make it another round. Ben thinks Ramsay is singling him out to push him to be a better chef. Before the contestants can relax in their rooms, Chef Ramsay calls to summon them to clean up Hell's Kitchen. Corey, exhausted, tries to get her teammates to speed up, but eventually bails out before the cleaning is done. When the women notice this, they're furious.

The next morning, Chef asks the ladies who their strongest member is. The ladies choose Jen over Corey, which is a surprise to Corey. The men quickly nominate Ben as their strongest contender. Ramsay says he will open Hell's Kitchen that night with a family friendly menu.

The challenge tonight will be to create pasta, and Chef shows them how. The teams will have 20 minutes to make as much pasta that will live up to Ramsay's standards. On the men's side, Craig falls behind and Bobby forces him off the line. Jen screams to the women to get it done. When time is up, Chef applauds both teams for their energy. The team that has the most weight in pasta wins the challenge. The men score 5.48 lbs. and the women weight in with 6.57 lbs. Once again, the women win. The men are sent off to prep for the night's dinner. The ladies get a day of fun. The men are angry with Craig's failed performance.

During prep, Sous Chef Scott asks for a volunteer and Ben steps up. Scott leads Ben outside to an amusement area built for the evening's guests. Ben realizes he has volunteered to clean up after horses who are waiting outside. And if that wasn't bad enough, the women arrive back at the kitchen and see him doing it.
