The teams then had to create three dishes, each with pork as the primary ingredient and one further ingredient. The red team got ham hock, tenderloin, blood sausage, apple, prunes and sweet potato, while the blue team got bacon, pork chop, loin chop, cabbage, pinto beans and bok choi.
The blue team's roasted pork loin scored over the red team's blood sausage and prunes, but the red team's fennel-encrusted pork tenderloin scored over the blue team's honey-glazed bacon. Finally, Jay and Salvatore's pork chop with pinto beans scored over Maria and Scott's sweet potato soup as the soup used ham hock as a garnish, when it was supposed to be the main ingredient. The blue team were rewarded with a trip to Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa while the red team had to give the pigs in the pen a bath.
Ramsay announced that tonight's service will be barbecue night with the service having two servings, with the teams taking turns cooking and working in the dining room. In the red kitchen, Fran had a strong performance on appetizers, but Maria served raw crab, Scott burnt chicken and Siobhan undercooked burgers. Scott was even reprimanded by Ramsay for leaving his oven door open, yelling it was a safety hazard.
The blue team did well in the dining room, their only problem being Salvatore's poor handwriting, which Ramsey forgave him for after he revealed he never went to school.
When the teams swapped, Jay was strong on appetizers, but Salvatore struggled to communicate on garnish, and Autumn undercooked ribs. Jason got into a heated confrontation with Ramsey after the latter found him frying chicken and fries in the same basket. In the end, Holli's door opened while Jay took second place. Today, we spoke to Jay in an exclusive interview about being on tv, his showmance with Holli, and what's next for this chef.
