Aired: 8/15/11

Chef Ramsay greets the nine remaining contestants in "Hell's Kitchen" and asks, "Who's married here?" Elise and Will raise their hands. The chef begins to talk about seducing the opposite sex with food, and Jennifer offers, "I know what takes the boxers off."

The chefs learn that their challenge is to create a sexy and delicious dessert in one hour. Will isn't comfortable with making sweets, but he still is going to play to win, even as he struggles to find inspiration. Over in the Red Kitchen, Jamie is having a hard time as well, as she feels pushed out of her comfort zone.

With one extra contestant on the Red Team, the ladies are forced to choose one dessert to drop. They decide to eliminate Elise's treat. Chef Ramsay welcomes two guest judges: Jordan Kahn from Red Medicine and Waylynn Lucas of fonuts.

The desserts will be rated on a star system, with each of the guests giving a dish between one and three stars. The team with the most stars wins.
