Recap Image

Aired: 6/19/12

After a miserable dinner service, three chefs are currently standing in front of Chef Gordon Ramsay facing elimination: Patrick and Guy from the Blue Team and Danielle from the Red Team. Chef Ramsay asks Danielle to turn in her jacket and leave Hell's Kitchen.

The contestants retreat to the dorms for some rest before the next day's challenge. The Red Team becomes even more divided, breaking into two alliances. One is made up of Kimmie, Tiffany, and Robyn. The other includes Christina, Dana, and Barbie. In the meantime, the Blue Team attacks Patrick for not being a strong enough leader, and Royce tries to unsuccessfully take over at the helm. Both teams are more fractured than ever.

The next morning the teams put aside their differences and meet Chef Ramsay in the dining room. He gives them a lesson food business trends, from '50s Jell-O molds and TV dinners to '70s fondue and '90s Asian fusion.

He tells them that as with food trends, there are trends in clothing design - and he announces that for the first time ever, there's going to be fashion night at Hell's Kitchen. Chef Ramsay introduces them to three acclaimed designers who will be judging their next challenge: David Meister, Amanda Ché, and Ina Soltani.
