Recap Image

When the aspiring chefs return to the dorms, Giovanni confronts Seth and states that he has no respect for him outside of the kitchen. Seth dismisses the comments and says that he doesn't care what Giovanni thinks of him. In the end, the two agree that they must work cooperatively inside the kitchen, but will suspend any interaction outside of it.

The following morning, Chef Ramsay greets the two teams in the dining room. He asks one member from each of the teams to name their strongest chef and this brings tension throughout the ranks. Ben, in particular, is upset that Danny doesn't identify him as one of the Blue team's best chefs. Chef Ramsay stresses the importance of teamwork, before he announces that Hell's Kitchen is open for breakfast. A swarm of youth football players and young cheerleaders run through Hell's Kitchen's doors and the teams each race to cook breakfast for 50 hungry kids-the Blue team will cook for the football players, and the Red Team, for the cheerleaders.

The Blue Team takes an early lead until Robert is scolded for bringing up a messy plate. This angers Robert, as he was serving a plate that was assembled by J, and unjustly received the punishment. Meanwhile, Coi sets the Red team behind by failing to correctly cook pancakes. Seth, in the Blue kitchen, receives a thrashing by his teammates, as he fails to make an adequate amount of scrambled eggs, thereby, slowing down the kitchen.

Nevertheless, after serving a number of successful breakfasts, the Red and Blue kitchens are tied at 40 meals each. As they rush to serve the remaining children, the Red team brings their final breakfast to the pass, just prior to the Blue team, securing the Red team's first victory in a challenge.
