SIXTEEN ASPIRING CHEFS STEP UP TO THE PLATE ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF "HELL'S KITCHEN" THURSDAY, JANUARY 29, ON FOX

Winner Receives a "Head Chef" Position at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ

Thursday nights heat up this winter as a new batch of 16 aspiring chefs step through the doors of HELL'S KITCHEN to face world-renowned chef Gordon Ramsay as he serves up the fifth course of his fiery unscripted series, premiering Thursday, Jan. 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

The chefs have varying degrees of culinary experience, but all are incredibly passionate about food. Demanding absolute perfection, Ramsay puts the chefs through rigorous culinary challenges, testing to see who will boil under the intense pressure. Each week, Ramsay will send one chef home, and the rest are left to saut� their way toward the grand prize of a "Head Chef" position at the East Coast's leading resort destination, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Since opening in 2003, Borgata has raised the culinary bar in Atlantic City introducing world-class dining experiences to the market.

During the season premiere, the 16 chefs enter HELL'S KITCHEN and get to work right away by preparing and presenting their signature dishes to Chef Ramsay. Unlike past seasons, Ramsay is pleasantly surprised by some of the chef's creations. After the taste test, they waste no time breaking up into teams and prepping for that night's dinner service.
