Last time on Hell's Kitchen: Colleen got on Gordon's last nerve, and he sent her home. And, shockingly, Lacey made herself useful over on the Blue team!
Tonight: The women are sad that they've lost their cheerleader, and being put on the chopping block humbles Andrea. She plans on using it as motivation to do better. After being so close to going home at the elimination ceremony, J thinks about his wife and son and begins crying when he thinks about the important reasons he is there.
The next morning, Ramsay reinforces Lacey's sudden progress, saying that she is now shining. He then makes an announcement: tomorrow night, Hell's Kitchen will be open for a bar mitzvah. Ben is one excited Jew, and Ramsay has him explain that a bar mitzvah signifies a boy entering into manhood. Ramsay then explains the challenge: each team will take the boy's favorite dishes and make them special. The boy's mother and grandmother enter the kitchen and tell the chefs what he likes. His favorite foods are burgers, chicken soup, and brisket, so each team is to create one of each and take them to a new level. They have 45 minutes. Ramsay is testing the chefs' ability to innovate and think on their feet. A variety of ingredients are already in the kitchen for their use. Robert and Carol both call burgers; each saying it's in the bag for their team. Ben believes that he knows upscale Jewish food, and calls it time for him to shine for his people he even breaks into a little Hava Nagila' while he cooks! Andrea worries aloud about Carol's choice of bleu cheese in her burger, and the rest of the team agrees, but Carol is stubborn on the choice, saying that her kids love it. J uses the challenge as a chance to make up for his poor service the week before, and pumps out the soup. Both teams finish their dishes on time.
Ramsay explains that he won't be judging this time; the guest of honor will be. He calls out Max, the bar mitzvah boy with braces! (All together now: Awww!)
