Recap Image

After Chef Ramsay's rare display of mercy, both Tennille and Lovely have been chosen to remain in Hell's Kitchen. However, after the elimination round, Suzanne expresses her belief that Tennille should have gone home. Meanwhile, Van tells Kevin that Andy's poor performance during service has proven that he is hanging by a thin thread and needs to prove himself or else he will be the next to go. The following morning, it seems the rising tensions on both teams haven't gone unnoticed by Chef Ramsay.

Each of the aspiring chefs is paired with teammates they don't necessarily get along with for the first ever sausage challenge. The challenge's purpose is to teach the chefs that what happens outside of the kitchen shouldn't affect the food. Arch enemies Tennille and Suzanne are assigned to work together, while Van must collaborate with Andy. For the sausage challenge, the first team to bring Chef Ramsay six perfect chains on sausages, each consisting of six links, will be declared the winner. During the challenge, Tennille and Suzanne surprisingly impress Chef Ramsay by producing sausages that meet his standards. But it's the men's lack of teamwork -- especially by Robert and Jim, who fail to score any points -- that loses the challenge for the men.

As a reward, the women get their own private Oktoberfest-style party. As their punishment, the men clean every inch of the filthy dorms. Robert and Kevin lose their tempers in an argument about who is to blame for losing the challenge, getting in each other's faces and screaming. After reconciling, Robert and Kevin point to Jim as the sole cause for them losing the challenge.

Meanwhile, the red team celebrates their victory at Old World Village in Huntington Beach. Jean Philippe, accompanied by German beer wenches, join the party where everyone drinks the finest beers, eats gourmet sausages and dances to the music of a live Oompa band.
