The Competition Goes to the Diner

Rachael and Guy welcome the remaining six celebrities to Mel's Drive-In on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. The next challenge will test their adaptability. Each team must create a full diner experience and put their own spin on one of three classic sandwiches: a tuna melt, cheeseburger or club sandwich. Each team must have one member serving in the front of the house and two members preparing the food in the kitchen.

Doling Out the Dishes

As Guy explains, there's a catch. Since Team Rachael won last week's challenge, they have the advantage. They can assign the sandwiches to the members of Team Guy. Team Rachael decides to assign the tuna melt to Dean, the cheeseburger to Chilli and the club sandwich to Johnny. Of course, no one gets what they would have picked themselves. The celebrities will have 30 minutes to plan their menus and 1 hour to prepare for service.

Chicken Again?

Team Guy will cook and serve first. Johnny gets started on the club sandwiches, but instead of working with the classic ingredient of chicken, which would have been the third time Johnny's dishes featured chicken, he decides to use turkey.

No Luck for Dean

Dean reluctantly must make tuna melts. He has the hardest time getting his tuna flavored the way he wants it. Eventually he gives up and starts assembling the sandwiches on ciabatta rolls and tops the tuna with grated Gruyere but doesn't have enough cheese to make it count as a melt.

Focus, Chilli, Focus

Chilli needs a bit of help figuring out how she's going to make a burger that's juicy but also cooked well, something she has no experience with. Guy gives her the lowdown on how to make diner-style burgers. Using a squeeze bottle of water and a dome will ensure the burgers cook up moist and that the cheese will melt. Chilli's still not convinced she'll be able to pull it off.

Can I Have Your Order?

With Chilli and Dean in the back, Johnny's got the front covered. He takes orders from the customers and keeps them entertained, hopefully distracting them from any orders that might be coming out late.

You Can Do It

Rachael and Guy cheer on Johnny as he rushes to get the orders out in time. But Johnny has a great idea on how to speed up the process.

Speedy Delivery

Johnny puts on his roller skates, which will help him take the orders faster and get the food delivered quickly. He takes the opportunity to put on a show and keep the diners entertained.

Hines Is Forced to Face His Fear

Hines is scared to use the food processor in this challenge. Rachael made him promise he'd work with the machine to create his Double Bacon Burgers, which will have bacon ground into the patty in addition to having crispy bacon on top. Both Carnie and Kathy encourage Hines to face his fear.

That Wasn't So Bad

Hines can't believe how easy it was to use the food processor. He combines the finely chopped bacon with the ground beef to create his dish.

Carnie Is in Her Element

Carnie is having a great time in the kitchen. Her Melt Your Heart Tuna Melts are coming out great and people keep ordering them. She's got a whole bunch of sandwiches toasting on the grill and is on a roll, until she realizes she's forgotten something.

Don't Forget Me!

While Kathy is covering the front of the house, Hines and Carnie were supposed to be making her Vegetarian Grilled Cheese Clubs for everyone, but they completely forgot. She rushes back to help Carnie get some orders out quickly before the diners start complaining.

Sultry Service

Kathy can't help schmoozing with the diner guests. She's doing a great job and everyone is having a good time.

Meet and Greet

After they finish service and everyone's had their meals, Team Rachael visits with the diner guests, asking them what they thought about the food and thanking them for coming out.

Discussing the Dishes

Rachael and Guy talk about the merits of the dishes. They're really impressed with Team Rachael's sandwiches. The one complaint is that Kathy's triple-decker sandwich really didn't need that third slice of bread and Guy thinks it would have been better if it included seitan bacon. Rachael had advised her to use it, but Kathy didn't like the bitter taste.

Two Times the Winner

Team Rachael wins the challenge again. The diners loved their sandwiches, but the two they enjoyed the most were Hines' and Carnie's, making it a tie. Team Guy didn't do so well in this challenge. People found Chilli's burger to be "nothing special" and Dean's tuna melt didn't have enough flavor or cheese. The two must face off in the blind-tasting challenge and create a milkshake in only 5 minutes.

Taking It Over the Top

Dean puts the finishing touches on his Creamsicle-inspired milkshake. It has orange liqueur, orange segments and orange zest. He also sticks a liqueur-soaked snack cake on top for an extra special touch that he hopes will put his creation on top.

Sticking to the Classic

Chilli makes a milkshake that she thinks would please everyone, especially kids, like her own son, Tron. The milkshake includes chocolate, peanut butter and cookies.

The Classic vs. the Twist

Rachael and Guy must decide whether they like the classic milkshake or the boozy one better. Rachael says she loves the classic, but Guy is leaning toward the boozy creation. In the end they choose Dean's Creamsicle milkshake as the winner, which means the journey ends for Chilli.
