Contestant progress Edit

At the end of each episode, one chef from the losing team is eliminated by Ramsay, after being picked by the "Best of the Worst", determined by Ramsay after the last dinner service. On that season, the first unusual eliminations occurred, with Ramsay overruling formal nominations at one point, making his own nominations after already eliminating someone at another one, and one chef being eliminated during service. That season also featured the first episode ever where no elimination occurred at all.
