Hell's Kitchen Recap: The Person Going Home Is...

This week, Vanessa is back, but from last week's injury, she is unable to do much. She says she will need plastic surgery. I have a feeling this will be a problem this episode. Poor girl.

In the morning, Chef Ramsay shows the chefs his white truffle onion pizza - worth $200. The chefs are challenged with providing their very own high end pizza. Man I'm getting hungry.

After all the chefs each make a pizza, they try each other's to pick one to perfect and present to Chef Ramsay. The women choose Jen's pizza rather quickly, while the men have a little more of a problem. They debate between pizzas and Ben calls out Louross' pizza for being similar to a pizza you would get at Pizza Shack. Ouch. Finally the men (well actually just Ben and Bobby) decide to serve Ben's pizza.

 
Ultimately Ramsay chooses Jen's pizza, mainly because Ben's pizza had gritty mushrooms. Guess who was in charge of cleaning the mushrooms? Yeah, Ben is not doing so hot. The girls' prize is a helicopter ride and $90 hamburgers. They also get the privilege of having their pizza appear on the menu for that night's dinner service.

When the women return, Vanessa is worried about her hand and is having a tough time prepping for dinner service. She talks to Ramsay who gives her the choice of staying and working with a hurt hand, or leaving Hell's Kitchen to heal it. Vanessa decides if she can't be there 100%, she can't stay. She says bye to the girls and leaves with her head held high.

Sticking to the pizza theme, Chef Ramsay decides to offer pizza delivery, and since the men lost, they will be delivering the pizzas - in a small red golf-cart size car. At service Ramsay informs Ben he will be delivering the pizzas (of course). There is something hilarious to me about a little southern boy driving around in L.A. in a go-cart that won't go in reverse.

Back in the kitchen, Rosanne has a very tough time with her mashed potatoes and carrot sides. Ramsay decides to send out a entree without the side and tells Vanessa flat out she is not good enough. That Ramsay knows how to cut deep.

After a few mishaps and some stress involving soufflés, both sides finally finish a dinner service. What episode are we on? Ramsay decides not to have a losing team and asks both teams to nominate someone to but up for elimination.

The women elect Rosanne based on her vegetable problem, but at the last minute they decide to put up Christina for her problems with dessert. Really though it's because she's probably the best on the women's team. The men debate between Matt and Louross leaving, but Louross decides he will step up if he is being called out.

At elimination, Ramsay is shocked by Christina being up for elimination and actually asks Rosanne if she actually thinks she is a better cook than Christina (she's not). Ramsay decides that no one will be leaving tonight because Vanessa already left. He tells them to keep working hard and keep completing services diligently.

Until next time, Happy Eating!
