As Season 17 of Hell’s Kitchen continues, Michelle and Nick find themselves in hot water when their dinner service hits a major setback!

“Nick and I are strong competitors and now we’re in black jackets; this is what we’ve been working for since we got here. You know I think we really need to give Chef Ramsey a really good service,” Season 14 All-Star Michelle Tribble begins in the opening moments of our exclusive sneak peek from tonight’s new episode of Hell’s Kitchen.

After working to instruct star athletes Candice Park, Jordan Wieber, Ricky Williams, Shawne Merriman and Reggie Miller on how to prepare their signature dishes using only their verbal instructions, the heat is cranked up as the remaining All-Stars come together to cook in one kitchen for the first time this season during the dinner service.

With Michelle and fellow Season 14 All-Star Nick Peters running the show, things seem to be going better than expected. When Michelle fails to quickly produce the halibut sauce needed for one of the night’s key dishes, though, their luck begins to take a turn for the worse.

“Michelle, I love you. You and I are holding it down right now, but as our buddy Wyclef Jean at our chef table would tell you, ‘You’re killing us softly with this sauce’,” Nick comments when Michelle begins to crack under the pressure. However, as we see in the closing moments of the clip, it might be Nick who should be concerned with failing to secure a place in the final four after Chef Ramsey sends back his course.
