Gordon Ramsay's Bleep-O-Fucking-Meter: 17
Contestants' Bleep-O-Fucking-Meter: 44!
Unnecessary shots of Robert's butt: Only one, but that's still more than I really needed.
Hey! You got your American Idol in my Hell's Kitchen! So we're starting five minutes late, which means we're ending five minutes late. I hope my Tivo holds together!
Previously: Teamwork was tested by cooking breakfast. Colleen flashed back to being a cheerleader. Danny and Ben both thought they were great and both got shouted at by Chef Ramsay. So did J and Seth. Chef Ramsay continued to hate Colleen and neither team won. Ben continued to think highly of himself. Seth got sent home. Then Lacey got switched to the men's team.
The chefs go back to the dorms as the remaining members of the red team openly celebrate the loss of Lacey. Andrea is positively squealing with joy. Lacey asks the blue team if they hate her already. Ben tells her to her face that they don't want another Seth and are hoping she won't just be more dead weight. Robert tells her that he'll help her out, but he interviews that she's a cancer. Lacey says she was only crying so much because of "all the drama on the red team." Well, all that drama largely consisted of people telling Lacey how awful she was, and I can see how that could wear on a person.
Hey! It's another full moon tonight! I'm working on a joke about a werewolf on a reality show. You know, because the moon is apparently always full on reality shows. I don't think the joke is quite ready yet, so I'll work on it for a couple of weeks. I'm sure I'll be given another full moon to comment on. So watch for that!
The next morning, the chefs are loaded into cars (without the usual wake-up noise) and taken to "Marukai", an Asian market. We see mysterious treats from the east, like "Candy Snacks" and "Shrimp Chips". Chef Ramsay explains the challenge: Asian-fusion. Robert alleges that he is all about fusion. Each team will make one poultry, one meat, and one seafood dish, all with "a strong Asian influence". They'll have 25 minutes and $100 to run around Marukai.
It seems like it would be difficult to plan a menu and also wrangle a six person team through a market. The men race off. The women stop and plan, led by Andrea who interviews that she has "a loud voice and loud thoughts". Carol is dubious. Meanwhile, the men just grab stuff at random. At the beef section, Lacey has trouble getting anyone to listen to her ideas. And those ideas aren't even very complicated: she just wants to make sure they grab some sort of beef.
