To celebrate their victory, the Blue Team was treated to some tasty shellfish and a game of soccer on the beach, while the Red Team was forced to eat some nasty fish stew. Always the troublemaker, Elise Harris refused to take a bite, and lied about it to Chef Christina Wilson. Not to be played the fool, Chef Christina smelled everyone’s breath, and watched as Elise took a bite of the vile concoction.

Next up was dinner service, and once again the Red Team struggled while the Blue Team triumphed. Ashley Nickell was sent out of the kitchen for checking her watch, while Barbie Marshall and Robyn Almodovar continued their longstanding feud while serving up cold lamb chops and fish respectively. The three of them, along with Manda Palomino, where all nominated for elimination after being banished once again. In the end, Chef Ramsay chose to send Ashley home, sparing the others for one more week in “Hell’s Kitchen.”
