Aired: 11/24/10

With Sabrina out, the remaining five finalists relax in the dorms, where Jillian, Trev, and Nona predict that they'll be the ones to make it to the final three. But only time will tell . . .

The next morning, Chef Ramsay explains their next challenge: Each of them will prepare a signature dish fit for the high-powered lunch crowd at LA Market restaurant. When they arrive at the restaurant, they're shocked to discover that they won't be cooking inside, but will instead be preparing their dishes in food trucks! Customers will try each chef's item and rank them. The chef who ends up with the most votes for best lunch will win the challenge. With just one hour to prepare 80 portions of their signature lunches, the contestants hop on the trucks and get cooking.

An hour later, 80 members of the downtown lunch crowd line up for Nona's chicken salad and bacon sandwich; Jillian's herb chicken with mixed vegetables; Trev's penne pasta with grilled sausage; and Gail's grilled skirt steak salad with mangoes. Unfortunately for Russell, he has a hard time persuading the hungry public that they should try his octopus with aioli.
