In the broadcast, the home cooks will be surprised with a trip to Las Vegas, where they'll be split into two teams to feed 101 performers at Drai's Nightclub. The team to receive the most winning votes from the performers will be safe from the next pressure test, while the losing team must enter a steak contest at Gordon Ramsay Steak.
