The teams come back into the kitchen, with Blue serving up Don and Brian as the nominees. As for Red, Roshni is the first nominee, and the second nominee, Christina hems and haws. She probably realizes she's supposed to be waiting for the commercial break anyway.
When we come back, she finally spits out Danielle as the second nominee, and I'm sure she said "um" just twice and they just edited it over and over again.
All four step forward. Ramsay asks Roshni if she's honestly over her head, and a worried-sounding Roshni says she's a fighter and she can't go home yet. Danielle says she should stay because she hasn't had any problems apart from communication. Ramsay reminds her that it's an important part.
Don says he has a lot to offer the team, but Ramsay says his team doesn't believe in him. Brian says he should stay because he's a machine. "You're a WHAT?" says Ramsay, adding that he's not looking for a machine, because machines build cars and chefs are individuals. He says there's someone here whose head isn't in the game, and it's Don. Second night in a row that it's not a fakeout! Don surrenders his jacket and leaves Hell's Kitchen. He says he thought he'd be able to come in and Ramsay would love his food and he thought he was more of a perfectionist than he was.
Meanwhile, Ramsay informs the rest of them that based on tonight's performance, he's not done yet. "I'm not going on like this," he says. He sends Danielle and Brian back in line, and then demands Roshni's jacket.
She looks gutted, and then he tells her something really important: she's now on the Blue team. He hopes that a change in environment will result in a change in performance. Red team claps and wishes her luck and Blue team greets her. Roshni looks like she just escaped death, and is just happy to have a jacket on, so she doesn't care what color it is.
"Everyone in Hell's Kitchen starts at the bottom. Unfortunately, Don stayed there," Ramsay tells us.
