Recap Image

Aired: 9/29/10

The guys toast the elimination of their weak link, Raj, and decide their team is now "unbeatable." The ladies aren't quite as united, however, as Sabrina and Jillian talk trash about the rest of their team members.

The next morning, both teams head down to the kitchen, where Chef Ramsay poses a question: "How many of you smoke?" More than half of the remaining dozen contestants raise their hands. He encourages them not to smoke, because it affects their palates and damages the way they cook. He then presents today's challenge. The chefs must create a unique ravioli dish by making their own pasta, coming up with a creative filling and sauce, and then properly cooking the ravioli. After a short lesson from Chef Ramsay, they're given 30 minutes to cook. They'll then taste and rank one another's dishes and present both team's best ravioli first.

Shortly before it's time to present, Gail asks to move her dish's ranking to last place since she's clearly not all that confident about how it turned out.
