3 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

The final 3 chefs remain. Chef Ramsay informs them that they are about to see some familiar faces. In walk their families! Andrea admits that she has really come to realize how important family is now that she has been without them during the competition. Paula tells her sister that participating in Hell's Kitchen is the toughest thing she has ever done. And Danny receives words that every son longs to hear, that his father is proud of him. Once the reunions are over, Chef sends the final 3 upstairs to get ready for their next big day.

Bright and early, Chef calls the aspiring chefs downstairs for their challenge. He informs them that they are to prepare 100 portions of an upscale lunch dish within 90 minutes for a group of mystery guests. As they get to work, Danny and Paula feel cool under the pressure, while Andrea struggles to get organized, and runs the risk of not completing all of her portions in the allotted time. Luckily, she puts the finishing touches on her plates as the mystery guests arrive: 100 of Los Angeles' more renowned Chefs.

While the Chefs taste all 3 of the dishes, they seem to agree that Paula's and Andrea's dishes are quite good, while Danny's is not even in the same league. When the results are announced, Paula is the clear winner... and Danny is the clear loser. 76% of the chefs found Danny's dish the worst.

While licking his wounds, Danny realizes that he has to find a way to pick himself back up. This is not the time for him to rollover, he has come too far to let Chef Ramsay think he is in over his head. And, as Danny and Andrea get to work cleaning the dining room after the 100 Chef lunch, and iron each of the table linens, Paula heads out for the first part of her two-part reward: a Hollywood make-over.
