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.

    • my god this years crop are really bad

      What is up with all these idiot chefs. Where did they find them? I'm amazed at the attitudes an teamwork they all people all need to grow up. ALL THE JUNIOR CHEFS HAVE MORE TALENT. Feel bad for chef Ramsey hope ratings don't suffer too much.


      Can we stop hearing that annoying lady repeat everything that is being done on the show. We can see and hear everything ourselves. Please shut her up. Thank you very for 1/15/2016 show.
    • New season idea

      Have producers ever thought of having a redemption season for the great chefs who came close but were beaten out . Michelle, Dana? I feel like it would intensify everything cause they know the kitchen and shouldn't make rookie mistakes.. It would just change things up for once.
    • Thanks for being judicious Tonight Chef

      Megan you need to take a long hard look at yourself, every episode we hear how you want to get the hell out of "Hell's Kitchen". Please feel free to leave. What you did to Michelle tonight made me Sick. She should be judged on merit and sadly enough was not by her peers. She is a better chef than you Megan which has been born out time and again in the competitions. Grow up, and perhaps one day you will make an adequate chef.moreless
    • RAMSY is a bit of a JERK

      A. I get the hole deal with him being pissed off at his workers but his customers? The guy treats them like crap.

      B. TMZ or another talk show has caught fox digitally adding people to the crowded waving outside of HELLS KITCHEN

      C. The man admitted in one of his episodes that he kept a chief to the very end for RATINGS and had no intention of keeping him.

      D. The guy uses foul language when there are 100 kids around. He has no respected.moreless
