Recap Image

During the nominations which sent LA home, Andrea and Carol vented their frustrations with each other in trying to get the other sent home. Once Chef Ramsay dismisses the aspiring chefs back to their dorms, Andrea and Carol have it out... again. The other 2 remaining members of the red team, Giovanni and Paula, warn them that if they are to stand any chance against the blue team, they need to work through this and come together as a team.

As the new day dawns, Chef Ramsay calls the aspiring chefs downstairs to bring them face to face with their next challenge: King Crab! Each contestant must make one crab dish, and when time is up, they must decide as a team which dish to present to Chef Ramsay for tasting. The blue team picks Ben's dish, King Crab with chili-vanilla sauce and asparagus, and the red team selected Andrea's poached Crab legs with pear infused butter. However, when Chef Ramsay tastes the dishes, he feels incredibly let down by how uninspired these dishes are, especially when dealing with one of the most sought-after ingredients. So, Chef Ramsay calls on Danny and Paula to bring up their dishes instead.

Much happier with these two dishes, Chef Ramsay declares Danny's dish the winner, and the men rejoice. For their reward, Chef Ramsay takes the blue team to the beach, and they ride Segways around the boardwalk, and then enjoy a lobster filled lunch. Meanwhile, as the men enjoy their day out, as a punishment, the red team is stuck at Hell's Kitchen cleaning the kitchens, the dorms, and all of the King Crab that is going to be used in the next dinner service. At the end of the day, both teams reunite and have an early night.

As the teams head down to prep for dinner service, Chef Ramsay is waiting for them with a special announcement. Tonight, they are going to be serving their own menus. It's going to be the red menu versus the blue menu, and the teams set out to create their dishes. 3 appetizers, 3 entrees and 3 desserts. While each member of the red team manages to each get themselves heard and represented on the menu, one member of the blue team is very heavily represented... Ben. Danny and Robert are concerned about a few of the menu items, but, in order to complete their creations within the time limit, they had to concede. And, all in all, despite having unlimited resources in which to create their menus, both the red menu and the blue menu wind up looking surprisingly similar.
