Episode description

The Pastabilities Are Endless

Individual challenge: Each team was tasked with making four pasta dishes using five ingredients per dish which are retrieved by balancing themselves on a narrow, curved beam suspended over a pool of marinara sauce (where falling nullifies the attempt entirely). Carmen notably struggled to cross the beam in a reasonable timeframe, while Atoye and Sammi slipped into the sauce; aside from these instances; everyone else crossed the beam without issue. The blue team finished the challenge first, allowing them to start five minutes ahead of the red team. Dahmere and Atoye worked together as the blue team had an extra member. Donya beat Johnathan on tagliatelle as his pasta was noticeably inconsistent in thickness. Ryan scored over Carmen on ravioli, but Leigh defeated Dahmere and Atoye on pappardelle as the latter’s red wine sauce did not complement their dish well. Despite Sammi mistakenly shaping her agnolotti into tortellini, she still beat Jason, whose pasta were severely undercooked, leading the red team to win three-one.

Punishment/reward: The red team got sets of OXO brand cookware and enjoy a session of “goat yoga”, while the blue team was tasked with creating and shaping 200 pounds of pasta for the evening dinner service. Johnathan declined to use his punishment pass. Carmen was noticeably confused by the concept of the reward (as goats were placed on top of their backs while kneeling in an attempt to relieve tension in certain muscle areas); the red team found the experience to be more amusing than relaxing. In the blue kitchen, Johnathan’s pasta was rejected by sous-chef Jason as being too dry, forcing him to restart from the beginning; he was able to redo it on the second try without issue.

Dinner service: Alix Klineman sat at the red team’s chef table, while Kel Mitchell sat at the blue team’s chef table. In the blue kitchen, Dahmere started off extremely vocal for the blue team on appetizers, however, Atoye undercooked lobster twice, forcing him to assist her on the fish station. In the red kitchen, Donya’s scallops stuck to the saute pan forcing Leigh’s risotto to be sent back; she corrected her mistakes on the second try. Atoye’s struggles continued, after failing to communicate proper ticket times to Ramsay, he sent her into the store room and gave her a stern, yet encouraging, talk to compose herself. Carmen’s lamb on the first entrée ticket was raw, leading Ramsay to gather the red team together and regroup. Jason was sternly reprimanded for sending up raw wellingtons for sous-chef Jason’s wife, but rebounded and served the ticket accordingly. Donya also got sent to the store room after serving a raw halibut; unlike Atoye, however, Ramsay took a softer tone with her and had a very brief conversation to rebound, which she did. Though both teams completed service, neither of them were named winners; Dahmere and Leigh were named Best of the Worst.

Elimination: Leigh nominated Donya and Carmen while Dahmere nominated Jason and Atoye. Ramsay eliminated Atoye, feeling she was losing her voice in the kitchen and had gone too far for her own good, before sending the remaining three back in line.

Ramsay’s comment: “Atoye’s passion was admirable, but you need more than just passion to be a great head chef.”

Hell’s Kitchen US Show Summary

The U.S. version of Hell’s Kitchen follows the format of the UK version though the show is recorded and not performed live, nor is there audience participation in the elimination of chefs. Each season brings twelve to twenty aspiring chefs to Hell’s Kitchen, a modified warehouse in Los Angeles that includes the restaurant, dual kitchen facilities, and a dormitory where the chefs reside while on the show. Gordon Ramsay breaks the chefs into two teams most often based on gender, with women on the red team, and men on the blue, and are given a chef’s jacket with labels of that color. The chefs compete in these teams, barring any reassignments by Ramsay, until only five or six chefs are left, which they are brought into a single common team wearing black-labeled jackets, though they now compete individually to be one of the final two. Each episode typically includes one challenge and one dinner service, following which a chef is eliminated from the game.

In challenges, the teams or individual chefs are tasked with a cooking challenge by Ramsay. The type of challenges are varied, ranging from ingredient preparation, meal preparation, taste tests, and other challenges. The first challenge of each season is a signature dish cookoff, giving the chefs the opportunity to show Ramsay their cooking. Each season typically includes one or more challenges that allows teams to construct several dishes either for a banquet to be held the next dinner service or as part of designing their own menus. Other challenges typically include a “taste it, make it” task where chefs must try to recreate a dish Ramsay has prepared by taste only, and a taste-test challenge where chefs identify ingredients without sight or sound. The winner of the challenge is either determined by a scoring system set for that challenge, or based on Ramsay’s and guest judges’ opinions. The winning team or chef is typically rewarded with an activity away from Hell’s Kitchen and other potential prizes, while the losing team or chefs are forced to do a menial task, such as cleaning the kitchens, preparing a specific ingredient for the dinner’s meal, or having to prepare the food for both kitchens.

For dinner services, the chefs are expected to work their station (such as meat, fish, or garnish) on the kitchen line to prepare food in coordination with their teammates and to Ramsay’s high standards for quality and presentation during a dinner service for about 100 guests (volunteers for the show), with each diner expecting to receive an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert. The chefs are given menus and recipe books by Ramsay to study and memorize, which include some of Ramsay’s more difficult plates including risotto and Beef Wellington, and are given a few hours before each service to prep their ingredients. They are also given silverware sets that they get to keep, regardless of their progress. Ramsay demands that all orders for one course for a table go out together, and will send back entire orders if one item is improperly prepared, such as being over- or undercooked or not seasoned correctly. While the chefs are in two teams, Ramsay is assisted by two of his trusted sous-chefs, each monitoring one of the kitchens who will also demand the same standards. The sous-chefs shift to helping to fill available positions once the chefs are on a single black team. One such service in this time period allows each chef to run the pass as part of a quality-control test (i.e. spotting mistakes that are sent up by either Ramsay or one of his sous-chefs).

Ramsay desires to complete every dinner service, but poor kitchen performance by one or both teams will cause him to close one or both sides of the kitchen early, and send the team(s) back to the dorms. Once the dinner service is complete, Ramsay determines which team (if not both) is the losing team and informs them to come up with chefs to be nominated for elimination. This may be a task assigned to the “best of the worst” on the team, or may be a group consensus. Ramsay regroups the teams and hears out the nominations from the losing team(s). After giving these nominees the chance to defend themselves, Ramsay selects one to hand over their jacket and “leave Hell’s Kitchen”, later symbolically placing that jacket on an empty sharp hook below a picture of that chef, in a row in his office; the hook pokes a hole in the jacket and ignites that chef’s picture signaling their departure. Ramsay is free to ignore these elimination rules if he sees fit. He has frequently eliminated chefs during the middle of the service if their performance is abysmal, or may override the provided nominations with his own selection. If an eliminated chef has performed exceptionally well, he may allow that chef to keep their jacket as a token of their success up to that point, if he sees fit. At the end of each episode, as he is seen heading back to his office to hang up the eliminated chef’s jacket, there is a voice-over of him explaining his reasons for eliminating that chef. Often chefs will be taken out of the competition for medical reasons or they may leave on their own free will; though the latter is not encouraged, their wishes are ultimately honored.

Once two chefs remain, they are each given the opportunity to develop their own menu and lead a brigade of former competitors through a full dinner service on their own. In some seasons, this has included the opportunity to decorate half of the Hell’s Kitchen restaurant to their liking. Ramsay will assure that all menu items meet his standards for high cuisine, and will oversee the service to make sure the high quality standards he expects are retained but otherwise does not get involved, allowing the two remaining chefs to demonstrate their ability to run the line to him. Ramsay will use his observations, those from the diners, and other sources to make a decision on who is the winning chef. This process is announced by having the two chefs stand at two different doors from his office, and telling them to turn the door handle and open it; only the door of the winning chef is unlocked. The winning chef receives numerous prizes including the opportunity to work as the head chef or executive chef at a restaurant of Ramsay’s choosing, as well as a cash prize.
