[S6E11] 6 Chefs Compete
Team challenge: For the first time in the series, the signature dish presentation was performed as the first team challenge, and the chefs were divided into men (blue) and women (red) teams. The team with the most dishes appreciated by Ramsay would win the challenge. Tek's chipotle honey grilled shrimp and Tennille's balsamic-glazed lamb chop gave the women a quick 2-0 lead, but Tony's mussels and chorizo and Jim's seared ahi tuna quickly brought the men back even. Dave's ostrich and Joseph's roasted veal chop earned compliments, but both were disqualified for having undercooked Brussels sprouts; Joseph was also berated for refusing to taste his own dish without a fork. Kevin had cooked his filet steak well, but he was disqualified for seasoning it with coffee sauce. Ariel's duck and Suzanne's risotto were both undercooked, and Andy and Lovely's dishes fell flat. Sabrina's chipotle-wrapped pork tenderloin was too spicy, and Amanda was berated for making a simple French toast dish that would have taken three minutes to make, and seemingly attempting to get Ramsay drunk since the toast was dipped in tequila and she served two glasses of tequila with the dish. Ramsay spat out Louie's biscuits with sausage gravy, comparing it to gunk, and Melinda's poached lobster and portabello mushroom dish was missing its main component: a lobster tail. Van's foie gras with minted caramel, the last dish to be judged, ultimately gave the men the challenge victory, 3-2.
Service: Ramsay had Van and Tennille cook and serve scampi in the dining room. Before service, Tony had a hard time preparing grapefruit to a point where Ramsay threatened to kick him out of the competition. Van earned Jean-Philippe's ire by running in the dining room and accidentally served customers at the other team's table, leading to heated disputes between the two. Ramsay pulled them out of the kitchen to reprimand them on their behavior. Tony cooked scallops too early and brought them up raw, forcing Kevin to take over for him on the fish station. For the red team, Robert burned shallots for a risotto, but he and Suzanne managed to get appetizers out. Tennille fell behind in the dining room which backed up her kitchen, and then faced not only Ramsay's anger, but also her team's, for serving undercooked shrimp to a woman who was pregnant. Lovely repeatedly burned her fish and didn't realize that the gas on the stove was turned off. Kevin again took over the fish station after Tony tried to cook a halibut without seasoning it, but he served it raw as well. Andy then undercooked the chicken and attempted to quickly fry it off after slicing it. Sabrina also served undercooked chicken despite Suzanne's warning, and after she burned the refire, the service was deemed a lost cause. Ramsay ordered the chefs to make shrimp cocktails for the diners (since they don't require any cooking), before shutting down both kitchens. No winner was declared.
Team challenge: The chefs were awakened at 2 A.M. with lights and sirens from fire trucks. There was no fire, but they were told to serve the firefighters a pasta meal consisting of chicken alfredo, meatball marinara, and a garlic bread appetizer; the first to serve all firefighters on its side would win. Andy and Lovely had trouble cooking garlic bread. However, Lovely quickly recovered with Ariel's help but Andy continued to slow down the rest of his team by only using two of the five available ovens. Eventually, Andy's bread made it out to the dining room. The women were far ahead, but the men caught up when Sabrina didn't put enough chicken in the alfredo and Tek had a marinara sent back for an undercooked meatball. Both teams made it to the final ticket simultaneously, but the women narrowly won.
Elimination: Ramsay named Ariel as best of the worst and told her to pick two nominees for elimination. She selected Lovely and Tennille. Ramsay indicated that he expected Amanda to be nominated rather than Lovel
