Dining room! Gordon has apparently done the math as well, because he asks Andrea to name the nominees. First up: Ben, who had the weakest performance of the possible nominees. Second: Paula, because of her lack of communication. With a muttered "This should be quick," Gordon has Ben and Paula step forward.
Ben, why should you stay? "Because I have never given up. I have always moved forward." Hey, Ben liked Meet the Robinsons too! Paula? "I feel like this whole competition, I've been a solid performer --" and that's where she gets cut off and told to get back in line. And Andrea is told to step forward, because Gordon Ramsay doesn't care about rules, even rules he made up.
Chef Ramsay tells Andrea she cooked worse than Ben and somehow caused Ben to cook as bad as he did. "You sunk him!" After an ominous pause, Andrea is still safe, because Gordon Ramsay says he's a man of his word. Now, it's down to Ben. Gordon: "Tomorrow night, I wanna wake up with a clear conscience. And your performance tonight was not as bad as Andrea's. And had she not been safe tonight, she would have gone by now. So Ben, this is your last chance. Back in line." Yeah, it had nothing to do with Robert going home in the middle of the episode.
The chefs are told to shape up. Ben interviews that Andrea is "flying on borrowed wings," which is not actually a saying.
Next week: "The chefs turn on Andrea", but they all already hate her. And we see Chef Ramsay shouting at Paula and Danny just to keep things weird.
