"Hell's Kitchen" 4/16

The remaining five go on a field trip to the place where the eventual winner of this season will work for- the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.

While the contestants are having dinner together, Robert decides to be taken to the hospital because he has chest pains. His future's in doubt...













...AS IT TURNS OUT, HE HAS PERICARDITIS, WHICH CAN LEAD TO HEART DISEASE, SO HE DECIDES TO WITHDRAW. Too bad. God bless him.

Challenge: Back at Hell's Kitchen, the final four now must each make their own signature dish within 45 minutes. I don't know if they've ever offered this before on this show during a challenge- the winner will get immunity!

Danny: Pan-seared sea scallops w/ citrus basil champaigne sauce

Andrea: Green tea-crusted tuna w/ sesame rice cake

Paula: Smoked salmon ceviche

Ben: Pan-roasted tiger prawns w/ mango-scented turnips and crushed Yukon Gold potatoes

The winner, and definitely in the final three, is...












...Andrea!

DINNER SERVICE: Early on, Andrea cooks up raw scallops. She struggles through the entire first half-hour of this Dinner Service. Meanwhile, Ben serves some cold puree. His struggles would continue as he later drops lettuce on a food that it doesn't belong on. Evenutally, he gets benched for a little bit. Andrea later winds up cooking up some raw salmon.

Overall, this Dinner Service was nothing to write home about.

ELIMINATION: Up for elimination are Paula & Ben...













...Paula's quickly declared safe, and Chef Ramsay then grills Andrea...














...in the end, nobody else is eliminated tonight.
