20 NEW CULINARY COMPETITORS BRAVE
CHEF GORDON RAMSAY’S COMMAND IN “HELL’S KITCHEN”
SEASON 11 FIRES UP TUESDAY, MARCH 12 ON FOX
Winner to Receive a Head Chef Position at
Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas
Award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay welcomes 20 new competitors on the 11th season premiere of HELL’S KITCHEN airing Tuesday, March 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. These aspiring restaurateurs will endure an intense culinary academy, including a series of grueling team challenges and dinner services to prove to Chef Ramsay that they have the perfect blend of skill, poise and determination to win a life-changing grand prize: a head chef position working under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace.
For the first time in HELL’S KITCHEN history, the newest batch of 20 aspiring restaurateurs will head to Las Vegas to present their signature dishes before a live audience. The contestants will split into two teams – the red team (women) and blue team (men) – to show Chef Ramsay and the live audience that they have what it takes to make their mark in the restaurant world. The winning team with the most impressive dishes will earn a VIP night on the town and attend a special concert, while the losing team will take a long, sweltering eight-hour journey back to Los Angeles on a school bus.
This season, the chefs will compete in an obstacle course involving lobsters and prepare a meal for hungry runners and world-renowned athletes as they vie for a chance to win lavish rewards, including a luxury spa day on a yacht and a trip to wine country on a private jet. Meanwhile, the losing teams will scale hundreds of pounds of fish or scrub down HELL’S KITCHEN in preparation for dinner service. Throughout the competition, the teams will be winnowed down until two chefs are left standing to compete for the ultimate prize.
