It’s an all-new season (incredibly it’s the seventeenth) and for the first time ever in Hell’s Kitchen history, Chef Ramsay invites 16 All-Stars back to the kitchen for a second chance to prove they have what it takes.
Old rivalries are renewed and new alliances are formed, but in the end, only one of these all-stars will claim the grand prize – a head chef position at the brand-new Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen Restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas and $250,000.
During the premiere episode, Chef Ramsay surprises the 16 former Black Jacket chefs with a twist on the infamous Signature Dish Challenge. The winning team will enjoy the ride of their lives at Skyslide in downtown Los Angeles, followed by a dinner with Chef Ramsay and special guest Wolfgang Puck at his restaurant, WP24. Meanwhile, the losing team will stay behind to clean up and prep both kitchens for the upcoming dinner service.
The next day, Ramsay gathers the chefs in the newly redesigned dining room for a huge announcement that will leave them stunned.
