The red team is very pleased with themselves, especially Sabrina. As well she should be! Jim has some kind of pig-in-a-prom-dress metaphor he'd like to share with us, which I think means he doesn't like the looks of some of the women. Noted. The women get into convertible Minis, go through the usual "I've never been in a convertible!" gushing, and are whisked off to Venice, where they are met by Annett Davis, Olympic Volleyballer. Balls are volleyed.
The men are interrupted during their prep to get on this really goofy-looking eight-way bicycle deal that I think I saw on The Amazing Race a few years ago. Robert and his 450 pounds are right next to Dave and his broken thumb. You know, considering these guys got two pretty serious injuries just washing a fire truck, I'm not sure it's a good idea to strap them into an experimental torture device like this. Sous chef Scott tells them to follow him, and zooms off on a scooter of some sort. It's a Piaggio MP3, which has two wheels on the front and one on the back. It's weird. I prefer my regular Vespa. Anyway, the guys start whining when they have to get up a hill. Hey, is it a good idea to put this much stress on the guy that had a heart attack last season just walking from room to room? Meanwhile, the women are on a suspiciously empty beach. And when they get back to the dorm, they get gift baskets with fancy blenders in them.
When the men return to the kitchen, Robert sits down for a while. Well, sure. He says he's short of breath and feels dizzy, so he gets sent off to the hospital. This is not a surprise, nor is it a dramatic twist.
Gordon gathers the two teams in the kitchen to tell them that Robert will not be back for dinner service tonight. So it's five on five. Okay, break!
Waiting for the orders to come in, the various chefs assure each other that they will show intensity. The first order for the blue team has two scallops, which Andy confidently assures Chef Ramsay is only one scallop. Andy tells us that the problem is that Gordon talks too fast and has an accent. Well, it's a good thing that everybody who works in a kitchen always speaks perfect, unaccented English then, isn't it? Chef Ramsay gets in Andy's face and shouts at him a little. As he does.
On the red side, Ariel's first scallops aren't seared enough for Chef Ramsay's liking. Do it again! Shout shout shout. Blue side! Jim's risotto is too peppery. Shout shout shout. Chef Ramsay gives him an order: "Show some emotion, will you? Or piss off." On the red side, Ariel has solved her scallop problem. But Tennille provides too much spinach, since she was just doing a big batch to provide spinach for all the orders at once. Chef Ramsay shouts at her to wake up, finishing with "Do the spinach to order, you lazy cow!"
