The chefs are welcomed to the kitchen with their first Sudden Death Quickfire challenge. Nothing like getting split into teams where your fate hangs in the balance of strangers right out of the gate right?
For the first part of the challenge, the chefs have to work in teams to complete four to complete mise en place tasks with using fresh local seafood. The slowest chef on the losing team will be up for elimination.
The red team loses, and George is deemed to have been the slowest. He chooses Gregory as his opponent, as payback for not letting him butcher the mackerel -- thereby getting him into this mess. But it's a choice he ultimately regrets as Gregory's dish bests him, and he loses the challenge and is forced to pack his knives and go.
