Aired: 9/29/10

With the latest elimination behind them, the contestants head back to the dorms where the guys express their surprise about Curtis being kicked out of the competition. But what's more shocking, they agree, is that Raj is still here. They decide that Trev should be the one to try to "handle" him. On the ladies' side, Jillian expresses her concerns about having Emily on the team.

Well, before it's time to get up, the contestants are awakened by a team of paramedics who give each chef a quick health exam. After they get dressed and head down to the dining room, Chef Ramsay reveals that he's asked the paramedics here because he felt, based on the last service, that the chefs lack energy. But after their medical tests, it's clear that they're all fit and healthy, which means it's a mental issue. Chef Ramsay says that he needs the next winner to be mentally strong.

For the upcoming challenge, each kitchen will have to make breakfast for 50 paramedics. The menu choices will include two options: an egg-white omelet with turkey bacon, roasted tomatoes, and toast or scrambled eggs with French toast, bacon, and sausage. The team that serves its side of the dining room fastest will win.
