Just Letter Cook 17x04
The remaining chefs must face off in a "game of chance" to divvy up their ingredients and create their own unique dishes. During this challenge, each chef has 45 minutes to create a dish, combining a protein of their choice with all the ingredients selected from the game of chance. After Chef Ramsay judges each dish, the winners are chosen and rewarded with a private jet whisking them away for an exclusive stay at the Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, CA. During dinner service, the contestants are determined to impress Chef Ramsay and the VIP Guests: Mixed martial artist Paige VanZant and actress/model Shannon Tweed. After mistakes are made in the kitchen, Chef Ramsay decides to shake things up.
Tower of Terror 17x03
Chef Ramsay challenges the remaining chefs to complete a four-tiered shellfish tower with "fast hands." Each team is divided into four teams of two, with each pair completing one tier at a time. The first team to finish all four tiers wins and is rewarded with a glamorous day in Malibu. Meanwhile, the losing team must prep for a massive fish delivery. Then, the dinner service begins with a rocky start, as Chef Ramsay sends multiple entrees back to the kitchen and temporarily kicks out one of the All-Stars. In the end, one team manages to improve its performance, while the other fails to impress. During an intense elimination, another contestant is sent home for showing a lack of commitment.

It's down to the Top Two in the Season 16 finale of HELL'S KITCHEN. As both finalists work on their menus for the last dinner service, Chef Ramsay surprises them with a special trip to the luxurious Ken Paves Salon, where they will receive a makeover before heading to the premiere of a new musical. When the two arrive at the theater, they are greeted by actor Rob Morrow and learn they are not actually seeing a musical, but are instead jumping into their final challenge, for which they must create four dishes in the span of an hour, all while in front of a huge audience! Walter Manzke, Michael Cimarusti, Susan Feniger and John Kunel serve as guest judges and help decide the winner of the challenge.

The winner of this challenge is taken on a helicopter tour of Los Angeles with Chef Andi and is treated to a delicious lunch at Firefly with Chef Ramsay. The losing chefs on the other hand, are forced to wrap presents for the Hell's Kitchen staff, steam their clothes and polish their shoes. At the dinner service, actress Tara Reid ("Sharknado"), pro baseball player Adrian Gonzalez, actor Matt Letscher ("Her," "The Carrie Diaries") and TV personality Taylor Ann Hasselhoff join as guest diners, and each chef is given the opportunity to run the pass, while Chef Andi and Chef Aaron surreptitiously try to sabotage them.

The winner receives a special prize - a luxurious overnight trip to Las Vegas, where they will stay in the Presidential Suite at The Venetian Hotel. Meanwhile, the other chefs are left to sort trash for recycling day. During dinner service, the chefs try to keep it together as guest diners TV anchor Neil Everett ("Sportscenter"), comedian Pauly Shore (host of podcast "Interested") and actor Erik Griffin ("Workaholics") watch from the dining room. Find out who will impress.
Black Jacket Lounge 16x13
Chef Ramsay shakes things up and introduces a series of three challenges that will determine the recipients of a black jacket. For the first time, there will be no reward, no punishment and no dinner service. During the first challenge, each chef must create a dish, knowing that surprise ingredients will be introduced to them along the way that they must use. In the second challenge, all chefs will receive the same ingredients to begin with and must create a unique dish based upon them. Finally, the competition heats up in the last challenge as two chefs go head-to-head for the final black jacket.

Later, the chefs learn that the night's dinner service will be a unique one, as they will host a private, invitation only service that honors major contributors to the charity "Stand Up to Cancer." After a few hiccups, one team must chose two people for elimination, which causes an unexpected deliberation. Then, the chefs must pair up for their challenge in which they must try and combine two countries' flavors to impress guest judge, Roy Yamaguchi, owner and executive chef of Roy's. Later during dinner service, the chefs try to impress Chef Ramsay, as well as special guest diners that include actors Kellita Smith ("Z Nation"), Jasika Nicole ("Fringe"), Patrick Renna ("The Sandlot") and Tommy Savas ("State of Affairs").
Dancing in the Grotto 16x10
Following the recent eliminations, the teams must balance out, and a member of one will move to the other. Then, the chefs tackle sliders for their challenge. The chefs are later introduced to three guest judges - Adam Fleischman, the founder of Umami Burger; Sang Yoon, the chef and owner of Father's Office; and Christina Wilson, the executive chef of Gordon Ramsay's BURGR - who will all determine which team gets to party at the Playboy Mansion and which team gets stuck cleaning up the LA River. Later, the teams try to impress celebrity guest diners, including 2009 Playmate of the Month Crystal Hefner, "Fashion Police" executive producer Melissa Rivers, TV hosts and producers Drew and Jonathan Scott and actress Ashley Green. However, a tough dinner service for both teams ultimately leads to a shocking elimination.
