18 NEW CHEFS
Friday, September 23 on FOX


FRIDAYS HEAT UP WHEN 18 NEW CHEFS ENTER “HELL’S KITCHEN” ON THE SEASON 16 PREMIERE, SEPTEMBER 23, ON FOX.

Winner to Receive Head Chef Position at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar  at The Venetian Las Vegas

Meet the new batch of 18 ambitious chefs willing to face host, executive producer and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay on the Season 16 premiere of HELL’S KITCHEN airing Friday, Sept. 23 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX. These aspiring chefs will leave their pleasantries at the door as they endure Ramsay’s hellishly intense culinary academy, including a series of grueling challenges and dinner services, for a chance to win the coveted HELL’S KITCHEN title.

Throughout the season, tensions will rise and emotions will flare as Ramsay puts on the pressure, demanding absolute perfection. Each week, the hopeful chefs will be put through rigorous culinary challenges, keeping only those who possess the right combination of ingredients to run their own restaurant. The last contestant to withstand the pressure of HELL’S KITCHEN will claim the grand prize – a Head Chef position at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar at The Venetian Las Vegas.

In the premiere episode, Ramsay shocks the 18 chefs with a detour to a U.S. Army training boot camp, before allowing them to enter HELL’S KITCHEN. After proving their commitment and desire to face the tests that lay ahead, they are then split into two teams – men (blue) vs. women (red) – and tasked with their first challenge: to present their signature dishes. Later, during the dinner service, one team will deliver one of the strongest opening night services in HELL’S KITCHEN history, while the other team struggles with finding momentum.
