Chef Ramsay handpicks fresh crop of aspiring chefs for eighth season of 'Hell's Kitchen'by jmaloni
Two-hour season premiere airs Wednesday, Sept. 22, on Fox
Each week, Ramsay puts the contestants through a series of grueling challenges, including baking in the all-new pizza ovens, catering a high school prom, introducing sushi to the "Hell's Kitchen" menu, serving breakfast to hard-working EMTs and celebrating the series' milestone 100th episode with a black-tie dinner service.
As the chefs are winnowed down, only those who catch Ramsay's eye will get to advance to the next round. Hoping for the coveted black chef jacket, the chefs will compete against one another, striving to survive another week. Eventually two finalists will compete head-to-head to impress Ramsay and one lucky chef will walk away with a head chef position at LA Market at the JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE and the opportunity to be the official spokesperson for Rosemount Estate Wines.
