As for the Blue Team, Ramsay prefaces Royce's comments by telling him that he's gaining a bad reputation. He doesn't think his performance warrants him being the worst chef on the team. Ramsay brilliantly points out that the gentlemen behind him do, though, and that's why he's up there. Chris, meanwhile, says he's a strong cook and a passion to be there. He confesses to being frazzled working on the scallops. "I'm deeply sorry that a non-stick pan and three scallops frazzled your mind," says Ramsay.
Ramsay sends Roshni and Royce back into line, and then tells Barbie and Chris that they should both be going home. But his decision is "Barbie ... back in line." Jesus, he doesn't have to do this EVERY time. Good god, Barbie's smirk the second he sends her back indicates she didn't buy it either. The Red Team's not pleased with seeing Barbie return, needless to say.
Chris steps forward to surrender his jacket to Ramsay, who tells him that if he's frazzled at this stage of the game, there's no way he's going to make it to Vegas. Outside, Chris admits to cracking under pressure. Bet he's wondering if it was such a good idea now to so cheerfully offer his own neck to the guillotine.
Ramsay tells the survivors they're getting a big surprise tomorrow and orders them to piss off, which is practically a term of endearment compared to the verbal abuse they've been getting recently. Robyn calls Barbie the devil and says they're all going to make her life hell. Or maybe you could resolve to work together better to improve your chances at winning? After Don amusingly tells us he's sick of losing and wants to go outside and "see a flower," Barbie warns that at the end of all this, there's only going to be one person standing, and it's going to be her.
"I'm sure that Chris prays that he never sees another scallop, and after tonight, I pray I don't see any more of him," Ramsay tells us. I hope for his sake Chris didn't draw Ramsay's name out of the Season 10 Secret Santa hat.
