Red team's first dish out to Chef tastes terrible and is sent back. Meanwhile, the Blue team is cranking out the dishes. But Petrozza gets busted for being unorganized and dirty in the kitchen.
Jean-Phillipe is returning dishes to the Red kitchen. The pasta and the sauces are way too salty. Part of the reason may be that Matt is sweating over the food he's cooking. The Red team can't get their service beyond the appetizers. Blue team gets their first main course out, but it's undercooked. Louross is screwing up the meat station and it's taking the Blue team down. Chef Ramsay threatens to shut down the Blue kitchen if one more beef dish is returned.

Petrozza, while sloppy, is the best of the worst. He must nominate his peers for elimination. Petrozza puts Louross up because he lacks the skills to compete. Then he names Jen, because of her attitude. Chef asks Petrozza who should be sent home and it will be Petrozza's call. Shockingly, Petrozza says Louross. Chef Ramsay agrees, and Louross turns in his jacket.
However, Chef isn't done. He calls Matt forward.
Chef Ramsay tells them to take off their jackets. He sends Jen back to the Red team, and sends Matt back to the Blue team. Everyone is shocked.
