Show Summary

Aspiring young chefs are put to the ultimate challenge in Hell's Kitchen, a reality television competition starring world renowned chef Gordon Ramsay. Each of these chefs dreams of fame and fortune, but many soon find their dreams becoming nightmares. Chef Ramsay demands quality and the intensity of the challenges is beyond anything the contestants can ever imagine. Split into two teams, they must compete against each other to provide their very best in the kitchen. If they do, they are lavishly rewarded with everything from extravagant trips to a ride on Ramsay's personal yacht. Those that fail are forced to suffer humiliating punishment. At the end of each episode, the chef who provided the best performance in Ramsay's opinion on the losing team is chosen to select two chefs from their own team for elimination. They must then give their reasons for their selection. Though one of these two chefs may be eliminated, Ramsay is under no obligation to choose either, and the final decision as to who is sent home is made solely by him. From Waffle House chefs to executive chefs, the competitors are tested in every way possible, from leadership skills to culinary skills. Traditional challenges include a taste-test of everyone's palette and special events such as birthdays and weddings. The chefs, however, must always be on their toes, as they never know when surprises may be coming. Previous season - Hell's Kitchen aired the fifth season at 9 P.M. on Thursdays In this, the fifth season, contestants competed for the position of head chef at a restaurant in the Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa-- one being built specifically for the winner. This season's crop featured what executive producer Kent Weed promised to be "the best chefs we've ever assembled," with everything from a cooking-school instructor to a food-court chicken fryer. There were many contenders, but many dramatic twists as well. You can catch repeats of various seasons of the program on FOX Reality, which has the rights to repeats of the show.

      I watch the show for the cooking and competition. Why does Hell's Kitchen feel the need to show the women in different states of undress while in their dorm rooms. I'm a woman watching what's supposed to be a cooking show and I don't need or want to see that kind of crap. Why does TV constantly exploit woman? What does that say about men? Not every man in existence needs to see T & A to watch a show and the ones that do are young in mind and shallow. Filming Holly talking about her huge porn collection and saying she filmed herself with partners is just unnecessary. It seems you can't watch anything these days without having titts and ass thrown in your face.moreless
    • Out goes the Marine!!!!

      Finally the lying coward US marine is out of the show. I can't believe how he lies to put others down for his own gain. Guess that is how those marines just murders women and children in other countries for their own gain. Reflects in his attitude in the show.

      Whats with this slob wanna-be Jackie. What a piece of filthy trash, just plain garbage.

      Uneducated Bully Bitch who needs a check-up from the neck-up.

      Look in any dictionary under the words Cun_t with ears, and that Bitches face will appear.

      The cigarette lighter showdown showed that Jackie is the saddest shovel full of dog excrement that has ever graced Hell's Kitchen !
