Recap Image

Ben tries to understand why Chef Ramsay put him up for elimination. Vanessa tells her team that she will see a plastic surgeon the next day about her severe burn. She is concerned that her burned hand will get her eliminated in the next round.

The chefs meet Ramsay in the kitchen. He challenges them to take an ordinary pizza and turn it into a fine-dining item. He gives them 45 minutes to prepare and cook. At the end of the time limit, they will select one to present.

The women agree on Jen's pizza and work on improving it. The men however, only have two pizzas done. Matt thinks his pizza is the best and Ben disagrees. The team agrees on Ben's pizza before Petrozza can even get his to the table.

Chef Ramsay picks Jen's pizza as the winner. Matt is furious. Jen's pizza will be offered as a special the next night. The women are get the night off to have dinner at a fancy restaurant while the men are sent to prep. Chef pulls the Blue Team aside and tells them that there's no bond among the men, and the lack of teamwork is making them weak.
