Aired: 12/01/10

With Gail out of the competition, the final four contestants - Nona, Russell, Jillian, and Trev - breathe a sigh of relief as they head back to the dorms to get some sleep.

The next day, Chef Ramsay pairs up Jillian with Trev and Russell with Nona. Each duo must come up with a dish to make in 30 minutes. What they don't know is that this task is just a distraction. Chef Ramsay is using the time to cook up an entrée he'll be serving for today's "Taste It, Now Make It" challenge. Chef Ramsay believes a great chef should be able to identify the key ingredients in any dish simply by tasting it, and he uses the dishes the two teams just cooked up to demonstrate it.

First, he tries Trev and Jillian's dish and quickly picks out lamb, pear, red pepper, and cinnamon. Then he identifies the rib-eye steak, lemon, and mascarpone in Nona and Russell's dish. Next, the four contestants, working individually with 45 minutes on the clock, must look at, smell, and taste the meal that Chef Ramsay has prepared and attempt to recreate it.
