Recap Image

Continued from the previous night's elimination, Chef Ramsay attacks Joseph on his inability to follow simple directions. Joseph doesn't back down, in fact he blows up, tearing off his jacket and charging towards Chef Ramsay. Joseph stands in Chef Ramsay's face, nose to nose, enraged and repeating "I ain't no bitch!". Chef Ramsay stands his ground before telling Joseph to get out, eliminating him from Hell's Kitchen forever.

With Joseph gone, Chef Ramsay isn't through. He turns to Kevin to name two members of the Blue Team for elimination. Andy and Tony are nominated to stand along side Lovely and Tennille, already selected from the Red Team. After each nominee pleads their case, Gordon wastes no time sending Tony home following his unconvincing plea. Tony is eliminated, ending his dream of becoming the Head Chef at Araxi Restaurant and Bar in Whistler, British Columbia. Chef Ramsay throws one last twist on top of an already action packed night by sending Robert back to the Blue Team to even things out.

Both teams try to get some rest after discussing Joseph's blow up, only to be woken up in the middle of the night by a fire alarm. Scott rushes into the dorms and corrals the contestants outside, where a cavalcade of fire trucks and firefighters line the front steps of Hell's Kitchen. Chef Ramsay informs the cast that while this was just a fire drill, a challenge awaits.

Each team must feed all the firefighters on their side of the dining room; the first team to finish will win the Pasta Service Challenge. Both teams get off to a slow start on their garlic bread appetizer. The red team pulls ahead when Lovely slowly but surely brings her garlic bread to the pass before Andy does on the blue side. But when both teams finally move on to the pasta entree, the race is on. Pasta dishes are flying out of both kitchens until the Red Team gets a dish sent back undercooked. The women rush to get their re-fired dish cooked and thanks to great teamwork, the Red Team manages to serves their final table of firefighters to win the Pasta Service Challenge.
