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

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.

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.
