After a terrible performance in the last episode of Hell's Kitchen, Chef Gordon Ramsay gave Amanda a pep talk before letting the contestants go to sleep. She knew she was on the hot seat. Surprisingly, Amanda remained under the radar for the rest of the show. Ramsay had bigger fish to fry.
The contestants went back to their living spaces in different moods. The men were oh-so cocky. They were totally salivating over the possibility of crushing the women's team.
The women were a little defeated. Tennille was extremely angered by her teammate's decision to put her up for elimination in the last episode and had a bit of a chip on her shoulder that became apparent later in the episode.
The next day, Ramsay wanted the chefs to develop a three-course meal not to exceed 700 calories. The teams were given a slew of ingredients.
Sabrina, who works in a health club, took the lead for the women's team. The men's team struggled to meet the calorie count. At first their meal was well over 1,000 calories, but they wound up with 597 calories; the women were just under 700. After a quick taste-test by Ramsay, the women's team won in a landslide.
For punishment, the men's team was charged with prepping for the night's dinner service and buying all the evening's ingredients. The additional catch was that the men had to ride a six-person bicycle to the grocery store.
The women got to go to Venice Beach for a volleyball lesson from Olympian Annett Davis. They came back to their living quarters to discover huge gift bags.
When the men came back from the bicycle ride, Robert complained of being short of breath. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.
Robert is an extremely large man who left the show early last season because of health reasons. The men's team wound up competing without Robert because he was in the hospital.
The men struggled without him. Jim couldn't season risotto properly. (Was it a sign of things to come?)
Meanwhile, Tennille messed up cooking spinach. Ramsay got in her face and started yelling at her. Tennille lost it and told him that he was "crap." He told her to get out of the kitchen. As Tennille left the kitchen, she screamed a curse word at Ramsay, which caught the entire kitchen by surprise. Ramsay followed her out. The two had a screaming match. Tennille eventually backed down and returned to the kitchen.
Upon his return to the kitchen, Ramsay focused in on Jim, who still could not master risotto. It was so bad that Ramsay relieved him of his cooking duties.
The teams then struggled to cook fish and meat. Andy served uncooked halibut. Sabrina undercooked pork. But Andy continually messed up on cooking the halibut. Ramsay was so mad I thought he was going to burst.
Ramsay shut down the dinner service. He said both teams lost the service. As a result, both teams were tasked with offering up one contestant for elimination.
The women offered up Sabrina. The men offered up Andy.
Sabrina touted her ability to be a team player. Andy said that Ramsay made him nervous.
Ramsay ignored both of the teams and sent home Jim.
Ramsay said Jim didn't have any heart. He later said that Jim didn't have any passion.
What do you think about the decision?
