At the beginning of the most recent episode of Hell's Kitchen, the women's team was lamenting over the loss of Ji. The team members basically pounced on lazy Lacey for her performance up to that point.
After receiving about two hours of sleep, the contestants were taken to a meat-packing plant to prepare for their first challenge.
The hopefuls were responsible for identifying cuts of meat. During the contest, Seth did a terrible job identifying the meat. Lacey also struggled. The men's team won the challenge. Chef Gordon Ramsay called the women's performance "pathetic."
As a result of their victory, the men got a reward of wine tasting and dinner. While the men were taking a private jet to their reward, the women were responsible for unloading huge slabs of beef from trucks into the kitchen.
Some selective editing showed the men sipping on wine, while the women were hacking up beef. Next, the men were shown digging into tender cuts of cooked steak. The women were fed cow liver, hearts, and ears. As a result, the women started vomiting. It was totally gross.
When the men returned, the men rubbed their win in the women's faces, but the women got the last laugh. I'll get to that in a little bit.
The next day the teams learned that Hell's Kitchen was turning into a steakhouse. Both teams would each get an opportunity to cook and serve in the restaurant.
The men, who dedicated their effort to Robert because he was supposed to get married on that day, cooked first. The women were responsible for serving.
Charlie screwed up time and time again. He undercooked the shrimp. He also allowed a cloth to catch on fire. Ben starting serving dessert before the main courses was ready. (Heck, the appetizers weren't even done.) Meanwhile, Lacey messed up orders. Giovanni, who cooks in a steakhouse, served raw steaks, and Ramsay screamed at him. The steaks continued to be returned. Ramsay was incensed.
Meanwhile, Lacey began to forget to take orders.
Seth continued to show that he didn't know his way around the kitchen. He didn't know how to fillet beef tenderloin. He completely butchered the expensive piece of meat. (And not in a good way.)
A hypocritical Giovanni remarked that Seth "molested" the meat.
Ramsay threw the wasted meat scraps at Seth and shut down the men, who were not done cooking.
The women then got the opportunity to run the kitchen.
Ramsay's "favorite" Colleen messed up the salads. Ramsay basically called her worthless. He was seriously trying to break her.
Charlie, who was having trouble in the kitchen, didn't fare much better during dinner service.
Coi messed up when she undercooked shrimp. (Insert yelling from Ramsay.)
Charlie began dropping the customer's food on their tables.
Andrea cooked steaks with ease. They were literally flying out of the kitchen. Too bad some of the customers said the steaks weren't fully cooked. Ramsay surprisingly defended her, and accused the men of trying to sabotage the women.
At the end of the night, Ramsay said that Lacey and Charlie were the worst servers. He then declared the women winners of the dinner service.
LA admitted that she wanted her team to lose so that they could get rid of "dead weight." (Insert Lacey and Colleen.)
When the men were tasked with coming up with their "bottom two," they started turning on each other. Giovanni was ticked off at Seth for nominating him.
During the elimination, J said the men nominated Seth and Charlie. Seth objected. He asked Ramsay to poll the men. Ramsay ignored Seth and told the pair to make their case.
Seth – in a seemingly endless speech -- said he wanted to learn more from Ramsay. I guess the neverending speech worked, though: Ramsay kicked out Charlie. He said he didn't "see it, feel it" from Charlie.
