This week, the chefs get treated to a field trip to a meat processing plant with Sous Chef Scott, after only three hours of sleep. Scott prefaces the trip by asking the contestants if any of them were afraid of heights or had a heart condition and offered them bags to throw up into. Nice way to wake up, right? Well, they signed up for it. The nasty tour of the plant leads into Gordon’s meat challenge, where they have to correctly identify eight different cuts of meat and then where it came from on the cow. Simple? Not for these chefs.
