It’s a new day in Hell’s Kitchen, and that means it’s time for a new challenge! Chef Ramsay gathers the remaining nine contestants in the dining room and tells them that this week is all about…romance! It’s also going to be the first ever Date Night in Hell’s Kitchen, and to prepare for it, the chefs will be tasked with only one hour to make a romantic and delicious dessert. The reward is a trip to Sin City, where the winning team will spend a night in Las Vega’s luxurious Ceasar’s Palace – complete with butlers and five bedrooms! Then, Date Night in Hell’s Kitchen begins and couples of all ages are in the dining room hoping for a special evening and a tasty meal. The Red Team is off to an icy start as tensions rise between Carrie and Elise, and in the Blue Kitchen, repeated mishaps have Chef Ramsay fuming. The losing team must nominate two members for elimination, and for one chef, the honeymoon is over.

For the first time ever, Hell’s Kitchen is hosting a class reunion and in this week’s challenge, each team must come up with three menu items for the occasion. After meeting with the reunion committee members and deciding on a Hawaiian Luau theme, the teams set to work on discussing dishes and strategy; but a miscommunication threatens to throw the Red Team’s whole menu off course. The winners of this week’s challenge have a lot to cook for: a day spent on a magnificent super yacht with a Jacuzzi and fully-stocked bar. Next, it’s on to the dinner service and while the reunion committee is impressed with the d�cor, dinner leaves something to be desired. As the Blue Team flounders with raw fish, the Red Team falls increasingly behind. In elimination, Chef Ramsay must decide who will continue on to cook another day.

This week, following an explosive elimination, the chefs are presented with their next challenge. Chef Ramsay introduces Chef Homaru Cantu and Chef Ben Roach, known for their unique ability to combine science and food. However, after an exciting demonstration with dry ice and liquid nitrogen, Chef Ramsay throws the teams for a loop – they will be doing just the opposite and going back to basics, using only heat and water to cook their dishes. Up for grabs this week is a relaxing day at the spa for the winning team. During dinner service, the Blue Team starts out strong on appetizers, while in the Red kitchen, Krupa’s repeated mistakes slow the team down. Each team manages to make it through dinner service without being shut down by Chef Ramsay but are told they each must nominate two members for elimination.

Carrie and Elise continue to butt heads and frustrations flare on the Red Team after the loss of their first member. The next morning, the chefs are feeling a little cooped up when they discover they’ll have to chase and catch chickens to determine which ingredients they’ll be able to use for the next challenge – preparing four chicken dishes using a different cooking method for each. The winners will land a coveted feature in People Magazine alongside Chef Ramsay. That night, the chefs prepare to serve some very special guests during dinner service – world champion volleyball players Misty May Treanor and Jen Kessy and Olympic gold-medal swimmers Mark Spitz and Janet Evans. But, once again, things are off to a rough start with rubbery scallops and raw Wellingtons – food not fit for champion athletes.

The lines are blurred this week after the Blue Team loses their second member in a row and Chef Ramsay insists that one of the ladies cross over to join the men. Carrie volunteers but it is Chef Ramsay who has final say. Then, it’s time for each team to get their hands dirty with the “Mommy & Me” challenge – serve lunch to 50 frenzied toddlers and their mothers. The losers are subjected to another night in Hell’s Kitchen while the winning team heads out for some old-fashioned fun on a night out at Medieval Times. Next, the teams are back in full swing for “Family Night” dinner service. While the Red Team is off to a promising start, they quickly lose momentum and tension between the ladies threatens to put them on the chopping block for the first time. Will they be able to keep their winning streak going strong or is it time for one of them to hang up her chef’s hat for good?
