Stacey's fish was badly overcooked. Holli's execution of her Indian dish was disasterious, which caused Ramsay to throw the dish out. Jamie's dish had a toothpick in it and was poorly presented.

Thier punishment was too clean the entryway and prep both kitchens for tonights service.
Episode 5 - Pork Dish Challenge
Each chef had to catch a pig in a pen to get an ingredient listed on the pigs collar, totaling 3 pork items and 3 side items. The teams then had to make up 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. The red team got off to a bad start, Ramsay spat out the first dish which was blood sausage and prunes and said it was "disgusting". The red team did earn a point in the next round with their fennel-encrusted pork tenderlion as Ramsay enjoyed it. But on the final round, Maria made a critical error and served up sweet potato soup, only usin ham hock as her garnish, which violated the main rule of the challenge. The red team lost and was forced too go to the pen and give the pigs a bath.
Episode 6 - The Mother Sauces Challenge
The challenge was to make meals out of the five mother sauces (Hollandaise, Bechamel, Demi-glace, Veloute, and Tomato) while also not reusing any of the other twenty ingredients given to them for use.

Holli won a point for the team with her dish. The teams were tied, then Ramsay said Jason's dish was the better one...and the red team lost. The red team had to clean and prep both kitchens for the next service.
Episode 8 - The Gourmet Sandwich Challenge
Each person had to make a gourmet sandwich, with Chef Ramsay checking everybody's ability to be innovative. They had 30 minutes to complete the challenge. Because the red team had one more person than the Blue team, they had to choose the worst sandwich on their team to sit out. The red team chose Siobhan to sit out, much to her dismay. The score ended in a tie, so Ramsay used Siobhan's sandwich to declare a winner.
