12 Chefs Compete
Season 1 - Episode 1
HELL'S KITCHEN is a culinary boot camp that features a group of aspiring restaurateurs opening a top-class restaurant, overseen by world-renowned but terrifying chef GORDON RAMSAY. A former pro-soccer-player-turned-Michelin-starred-chef, Ramsay has conquered London's haute cuisine scene. Now he's crossing the Pond to Los Angeles, to open the city's newest restaurant and discover - or create - the country's next culinary star. HELL'S KITCHEN will follow 12 competing chefs 24/7, capturing the fiery drama, intrigue and high emotion as the restaurant's opening night approaches. These ambitious hopefuls believe they have the drive, talent and desire to run their own restaurant, and they will be tossed into the cauldron, working under Ramsay and fighting for survival. So for the trainees, this means one thing: if they can't stand the heat, they'll have to get out of HELL'S KITCHEN.
