Recap Image

After an intense elimination, the blue team is shocked that Chef Ramsay has chosen Andy to stay in Hell's Kitchen instead of Robert. Meanwhile, the women express their concern that Suzanne's lack of teamwork is starting to disrupt the red team's morale.

The next day, Chef Ramsay surprises the aspiring chefs with a classic culinary challenge: the blind taste test. One member from each team must go head-to-head utilizing only their senses of taste to identify several types of foods. Beleaguered chef Andy feels like this will be his time to prove himself to his team and more importantly, to Chef Ramsay. The women jump to an early lead, but as their lead dissipates, the pressure for Andy to succeed grows. Ultimately, Andy faces off with Amanda but fails to bring victory to the men. The women find out they will be rewarded with a unique culinary experience while the men must make sorbet by hand for dinner service.

As the blue team enters a kitchen filled with boxes of fruit, they start to realize the scope of their punishment: not only must they sort and remove all seeds from the fruits and separate three type of berries by hand, they must also hand polish all the sorbet glasses at the bar for dinner service. For lunch, Chef Scott brings in delicious duck, beef and scallop entrees... and proceeds to pour them in the blender. Despite their disgust, the starving men gamely drink their lunch, which only Van enjoys. Meanwhile, the red team joins Chef Ramsay at a one-of-a-kind restaurant in Los Angeles named Opaque where they will dine in the dark. When the lights go off, everyone has a great dining experience until Suzanne once again starts annoying her team by sucking up to Chef Ramsay.

The following day, Hell's Kitchen prepares for its eighth dinner service. As the blue team works hard prepping their kitchen, the women have chosen to alienate Suzanne. Despite rising tensions within the red team, the women are still hopeful on winning dinner service for the second time in a row.
