15 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

With one dinner service under their belts, the remaining 15 contestants head back to the dorms, where Autumn gives her teammates some unwanted advice. Nearby, the Blue Team also has a pow-wow. During confessional, Andrew says he doesn't think the food served in "Hell's Kitchen" is all that good, and Jason says he believes Mikey is the team's weak link. Face to face, however, the guys decide that they've got to communicate better and support one another.

The next morning, sous chefs Scott and Andi blast an alarm clock through the dorm's P.A. system, and the contestants rush into "Hell's Kitchen" (while still in their jammies!), where Chef Ramsay is waiting. Since they made a lot of basic mistakes the previous night, it's time for a back-to-basics challenge. And what's more basic than eggs? Each team is divided into pairs, and each must cook four egg dishes -- poached, soft-boiled, sunny-side-up, and scrambled -- in just five minutes. Each pair has a chance to score up to four points, and the team with the most points at the end wins.

Though Siobhan must work alone since the ladies have an odd number of players, Autumn tells her she'll make the rest of Siobhan's eggs if Siobhan will just handle the poached ones. In the Blue Kitchen, Scott and Mikey end up spending more time coaching Salvatore than they do making their own egg dishes.

Nilka and Maria impress Chef Ramsay right away and score a perfect four. Though he isn't pleased with the scrambled and soft-boiled eggs Salvatore cooked, he likes Mikey's two egg dishes, landing the men two points.
