Once again, 18 new chefs from across the country will be tested like never before as Chef Ramsay puts them through a series of grueling challenges and dinner services to prove they have what it takes to win a life-changing grand prize: the HELL'S KITCHEN title and a Head Chef position, a total prize value of $250,000.
Click below to watch/share the opening to HELL'S KITCHEN's most explosive season yet:
Throughout the season, the contestants will face grueling challenges, including fishing for crabs, serving a speed lunch for motorcyclists, preparing delicious dishes for a high school homecoming and a charity night with Fran Drescher ("The Nanny"). Also, the dinner services and challenges will feature celebrities at HELL'S KITCHEN, including actor William Shatner ("Star Trek"), the cast of "Workaholics," actor John Ratzenberger ("Cheers"), actress Tamara Taylor (BONES), actor Jaleel White ("Family Matters"), actress Tatum O'Neal ("Paper Moon), actor Fred Willard ("Modern Family"), musician Taylor Hicks, actor Robert Englund ("A Nightmare On Elm Street"), actress Tiffani-Amber Thiessen ("White Collar"), musician Lisa Loeb and Chef Wolfgang Puck. As the competition progresses, the number of contestants will be narrowed down until only two chefs are left to compete for the HELL'S KITCHEN title.
In the most emotional season yet, the newest batch of contestants will jump right in to the competition as Chef Ramsay introduces them to their first team challenge. Ramsay splits the chefs into two teams - men (Blue) vs. women (Red) - and asks them to present their signature dishes in front of a live audience. Later, during their first dinner service, the contestants struggle to work together, with Chef Ramsay ultimately kicking one team out of the kitchen.
