Last time on Hell's Kitchen: the Red team put weakest links Colleen and Lacey up for elimination, but both survived the chopping block when the injured Ji voluntarily rolled out of the kitchen with her chef's jacket, and Gordon Ramsay's respect. Now we're back with Episode Three, "14 Chefs Compete," and the "steaks" are high as Ramsay takes both teams on a beef challenge crazier than Mad Cow.
Andrea laments the loss of Ji and tells Lacey that it's time for her to prove herself. Everyone leaves the smoking porch because Lacey won't stop yelling at them. The chef's went to bed at 3am and they were woken at 6am. No one will be in a good mood today.
They're whisked away to an undisclosed location and Scott asks them if they have a heart condition or if they're afraid of heights. They're then told to suit up and grab a barf bag. Enter the meat house. Chef Scott gives them a rundown of the cow.
Chef Ramsay tells them they need to know their meat. Ben claims he knows cow, which isn't a surprise. They must run up one at a time, identify eight cuts of meat laying on the table. Once they get every cut correct, they must then identify where each cut comes from on the model cows next to the table. The men finish the first round after two contestants (Ben and Giovanni) go through the cuts but the women are soon to follow.
Colleen has no idea which pieces go where, but manages to only get three wrong. Each team has three incorrect whe Seth claims he knows everything about meat. Really, he doesn't because he winds up screwing up the entire cow except for one label. Lacey's working with the 3 wrong. Robert only improves one placement. Each team has 6 wrong. Ben and Paula go head to head. Ben rings the bell first and wins for the men.
