On tonight's episode of Hell's Kitchen, the chefs are made to create - crepes! The winning team will enjoy an afternoon at a French restaurant, while the losing team has to endure losing one of their members after an injury during preparations for dinner service. For the dinner service, it's French cuisine, and Hell's Kitchen host Gordon Ramsay ends up kicking three chefs out of the kitchen when one disorganized one fails to keep up with the rest of the team. And as with any Hell's Kitchen episode, this one ends with someone packing up his or her knives and saying goodbye.

On the last episode of Hell's Kitchen, the contestants participated in a blind taste test to determine which of the chefs' palates are the most, well, refined. They were paired off and blindfolded, and eventually, the red team won, identifying two more ingredients than the blue team. The red team had a dining in the dark experience with Ramsay at the V Lounge in Santa Monica, while the blue team stayed put to make sorbet for that night's service.

As for that service, the blue team underwent major trouble when Andy ran out of mashed potatoes for the last few remaining orders. Also noteworthy was Dave still being able to cook up a new batch in short order despite one arm being in a cast. The girls didn't have a smooth service, as well. At one point, Ramsay had Sabrina eat her lamb, which he argued was undercooked (no thanks to Suzanne, who had problems of her own because of her sea bass). Eventually, the blue team won, mainly thanks to Dave.

Tennille was voted best of worst for her team, and surprise, surprise, she picked Suzanne and Sabrina for elimination. Fortunately for the lovely pair, Ramsay had different things in mind, and had Amanda leave Hell's Kitchen.

Catch Hell's Kitchen tonight 8pm on Fox.
