FOUR CHEFS REMAIN IN "HELL'S KITCHEN"

Paula DaSilva, Andrea Heinly, Danny Veltri and Ben Walanka Vie for Coveted Position Thursday, April 23, on FOX

HELL'S KITCHEN continues to heat up as the Top 4 chefs move one step closer to a "Head Chef" position at Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, the East Coast's leading resort destination. On Thursday, April 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the chefs remaining in HELL'S KITCHEN � Paula DaSilva of Coconut Creek, FL; Andrea Heinly of Reading, PA; Danny Veltri of Edgewater, FL and Ben Walanka of Chicago, IL - compete head-to-head in a "taste it, now make it" challenge where each participant must recreate the Ramsay-created dish they just tasted. The Top 4 have proved they have the culinary skills to impress Chef Gordon Ramsay, but as the "steaks" are raised and the competition narrows, do they have the chops to stay in the kitchen?
