Last table! Is it good? It is! And as they shove the desserts out, Chef Ramsay pulls Tennille aside to tell her "That's the best I've ever seen anybody cook meat." Daaaaaaamn! She holds herself together and just says "Thank you, chef" to his face, but there's a certain amount of gloating in private. As well there might be!
After the service, Tennille, Dave, and Kevin are lined up in the kitchen. None of them will be going home, and they are told to come up with two names out of the three that were thrown out. Up in the dorms, Tennille and Kevin confront Suzanne with her refusal to plate. And Van had a bad night and Ariel had a problem with lettuce. Dave thinks he should strategically put up Ariel even though he feels that Suzanne and Van are the weakest. Now it becomes a discussion of who Ramsay wants to see. They appear to decide on Suzanne and Ariel.
Down in the dining room, Dave nominates Suzanne for refusing to help push food out and Ariel for The Lettuce-Burning Incident. Chef Ramsay interrogates Tennille about whether those are the weakest two chefs, and she can tell which way the wind is blowing, so she says that Suzanne and Van should be up. So Chef Ramsay has all three of them step forward. Ariel, why should you stay? "I want so badly to stay here." Suzanne? "I have a great palate." Van? "I hate this. I hate it!" Going home? Not Ariel. Van. Go home, Van!
Gordon appears to kind of like Van, although he thinks he's too jumpy. He also praises Tennille for nominating Van, which makes Dave vow to take her out. Next time: we'll see a sight we've never seen before, which is Chef Ramsay in disbelief. Wait, don't we see that every week? Plus on most episodes of Kitchen Nightmares?
