Overview: At the start of this episode, Chef Ramsay and the contestants introduce themselves to members of the press. In addition, Chef Ramsay promised the media that the first service will be completed. To help meet his goal, Chef Ramsay gives the contestants a series of video demonstrations on how to cook various dishes. However, these tutorials always began with a fire alarm siren, which sounded several times in the early morning hours.
Signature Dishes / Team Challenge: Each team member cooks their signature dish for Chef Ramsay's approval. The team with the most approved dishes wins. The blue team won this challenge.
Service: Beginner screw ups all around with Maria, Jamie, Fran and Stacey kicked out of the Red kitchen while Salvatore, Benjamin and Mikey kicked out of the Blue kitchen.
Nominees for elimination:The red team was told to nominate two contestants for elimination; the team nominated Fran for being the first person to get thrown out of service and Stacey for being confused on Appetizers.
Elimination: Stacey was the first to leave Hell's Kitchen.
Chef Ramsay's Reason:"It's a good thing Stacey is a private chef, because her food isn't good enough for the public."
Next Week:The Red team falls appart while the Blue team fights back against Chef Ramsay.
