Recap Image

The shock from eliminations was not from Seth leaving, but from Lacey moving to the blue team. The red team couldn't be happier, and they do not hide their joy. The blue team on the other hand, tries to welcome Lacey with open arms, but gives her the warning that they won't carry her to the finish line.

As morning comes, it is the blue team's first chance to see how Lacey is as a teammate. Chef Ramsay meets the teams at a local Asian market, where they are told their challenge is all about fusion cuisine: making one dish from multiple ethnic influences. So, they are to purchase all of the ingredients they will need to make Asian Fusion dishes. Each team is responsible for making 3 dishes, a chicken dish, a meat dish, and a fish dish. During the shopping, Lacey reads loud and clear that the blue team does not respect her, and her role is going to be the same as it was on the red team: low man on the totem pole.

After returning to Hell's Kitchen and cooking in pairs, Chef Ramsay introduces the aspiring chefs to a guest judge: Tanya Steel, the editor and chief for the Epicurious.com website. Together, they will taste the Asian fusion creations.

Robert and Danny's "Fat Man Slim's Asian BBQ Chicken" dish beat out Carol and Coi's Pomegranate Chicken dish. Ben and Lacey's Scallops with Sea Urchin and Caviar lost out to Paula and LA's Tuna Tempura. So now, the score was tied. The beef dishes were going to serve as the tie breaker. J and Giovanni's Dual Beef dish was competition for Andrea and Colleen's Kobe Beef Sashimi, but ultimately lost out. It was a red team victory, and Lacey found herself on the losing team again.
