Superstar chef Gordon Ramsay returns this fall with the eighth season of the scalding-hot unscripted series “Hell’s Kitchen”. The show puts aspiring restaurateurs through an intense culinary academy as Ramsay seeks out the one chef who possesses the right combination of ingredients to win the life-changing grand prize.
The competing chefs have varying degrees of experience, but all have the dream and passion to excel in the culinary industry.
Throughout a series of grueling challenges including baking pizzas and flatbreads in the all-new pizza ovens, catering a high school prom, introducing sushi to the “Hell’s Kitchen” menu, serving breakfast to hard-working EMTs and celebrating the show’s milestone 100th episode with a black-tie dinner service, Ramsay aims to instill perfection and passion in each of the chefs.
While the challenges are grueling, the rewards are sweet. Some winning teams get to enjoy helicopter rides, lavish dinners, trapeze lessons and trips to amusement parks. The losers, on the other hand, are left behind to perform the mundane tasks of cleaning the dining room, prepping a truckload of potatoes, sorting through trash for a recycling program and packing up “Hell’s Kitchen” on move-out day.
As the chefs are winnowed down, only those who meet Ramsay’s strict standards will get to advance to the next round. Hoping for the coveted black chef jacket, the chefs will compete against each another while striving to survive another week. Eventually two finalists will compete head to head to impress Ramsay with five-star dishes, but only the one who possesses the right combination of passion, skill and drive will become the winner of “Hell’s Kitchen”.
“Hell’s Kitchen” is produced by ITV Studios America in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith and Kent Weed serve as executive producers.
