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. Theme Tune - "Fire" by the Ohio Players The first season of Hell's Kitchen is now available in stores across the United States on DVD.

    Hell's Kitchen is one of FOX's most popular Reality competition shows & not just because Gordon Ramsay is in it.



    This show reveals to us among its many competitors who are vying for a chef's position in one of Ramsay's many restaurants in a competition to see just who has what it takes to satisfy Gordon's high standards.



    The contestants have their reasons to win that coveted chef's position, but most fall to the wayside due to their own mounting mistakes. Now i know i have once compared Reality TV competition shows to garish sideshows, but Hell's Kitchen stands out as compelling TV that shows us that behind the glamour of being a chef, there's hardships to be overcome.moreless

    How about a show where Gordon Ramsey surprises average families with a chance to learn how to cook a gourmet meal?
  • Coffee shop dishwashers, or Head Chefs ?

    Mr Ramsey, I noticed you stopped telling the chefs to get out , f__k off after service.

    Get out, clean up, f__k off until they do!

    I have never seen such unprofessional looking chefs as this group.

    The chefs appearance sets the mood for whats to come on the plate.

    Some look like dishwashers at a local coffee shop.

    Someday, my wife and I will get to enjoy dining, at Hells Kitchen.moreless
  • Keisha way overdone.....

    5.5
    Why does everyone allow the Joy/Keisha duo to get by with protecting each other. What they did to Rochelle was really a shit move. They obviously have a pact to keep these 2 black girls in. Keisha should have been gone ages ago. Notice each time Joy finds a reason to send another girl in. It is like reverse discrimination. I am sick of it. It has gotten obvious and I am appalled that Chef Ramsey doesn't call them on it. Keisha is slow, stupid and thinks she is the winner already. Someone stand up against those 2.moreless
  • Take out the trash.

    6.0
    Kiesha is a line cook that has the skills of a dishwasher, you're annoying unorganized and lazy, no one is ever going to respect you enough to work under you. And joy is garbage too, yeah you might be able to cook but your a sneaky ***, I'm all for Rochelle now, as for the blue team, Anton is a joke without a punch line, have you ever actually worked a line before bro? Seriously dump the trash.moreless
