After the dinner service, the chefs are lined up in front of Chef Ramsay, who declares that he is not happy. Andrea, Robert, and Giovanni get special abuse. Paula gets praise for being "solid and consistent", so she's to pick out two for elimination. On the way to the dorms, Giovanni apologizes to Robert again. But Robert is still angry about having a "sizzle plate" in the refrigerator. Paula lectures the team about how bad they were.
Back to the dining room. Paula's first nominee is Giovanni for tonight's performance and not being a solid force in challenges. The second nominee is Andrea for struggling with communication. That's fair. Andrea, why should you stay? "I've given everything I've had." Really? Giovanni, how about you? "I'm much better than what I've shown." Well, I hope so.
Chef Ramsay takes a moment to remind Robert that he also did very poorly. And the person who's leaving is... Giovanni. He apologizes again to Robert for burning him, and then voiceovers about his experiences. And then he leaves.
Andrea turns to rejoin the team, but Chef Ramsay stops her. Then he tells her to "[bleep] off back in line," which is what she was doing anyway. So we're down to the top five, and many of them still stink. Ben interviews that he's close to winning.
It's still a crescent moon. And at 2:14 am, Gordon Ramsay calls the dorms and insists that everyone get down to the dining room immediately. Ramsay claims that he's been in his office for the last hour. Sure he has. Anyway, you were saying? "It just doesn't. Make. Sense. How can the final six be so [bleep]?" Well, my theory is that they were chosen on the basis of dysfunctional personality traits and photogenic cheekbones instead of actual cooking skill. But Ramsay is going to do something he's never done before: he's shutting down Hell's Kitchen.
Next week: the doors might open again if the chefs can prove themselves. And there are ambulances! The most unpredictable Hell's Kitchen ever! Which isn't saying much!
