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.

  • He tells it like it is!

    I love the show and Chef Ramsey. I think some of the contestants think they are way more talented than they are and he puts them in their place so they can get better.
  • Favoritism

    It was quite obvious that Chef Ramsey has chosen Bryant as the winner. When he told Bryant to come up with two names for elimination, I knew it was over. Ramsey's choice for Bryant to choose the two people to be eliminated gave Bryant the competitive edge.

    Not too sure why he eliminated Roe instead of Jennifer. Roe had won a lot of challenges as opposed to the others. She is even on the Omaha Steaks Billboard. It also appeared that the others were ganging up

    on Roe to make her look bad. Maybe Ramsey likes Bullies, since those have remained as contestants.moreless
  • racist

    O don't think ramsy is fear I think he may be racists be caught Fernando never had gone to the chopping block and the one time he goes he gets cut , I've been watching the show from the first season and I've never seen a Hispanic make it no matter how good they are
  • Gourmet, or go home

    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
