DESCRIPTION: (from FOX's press release, May 2013) Now in its 11th season, unscripted series HELL'S KITCHEN finds its head chef Gordon Ramsay continuing to spice up the program with new challenges and new rewards. Since its season premiere in March, a new batch of aspiring restaurateurs have braved Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he has put the competitors through an intense culinary academy to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win the life-changing grand prize: a head chef position working under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace. Already this season, the chefs have left the pleasantries at the door as the pressure to impress Chef Ramsay has reached a boiling point. With only ten chefs remaining in the competition, the contestants must continue to prove their ability to work in teams before Chef Ramsay determines which chefs are worthy of a black jacket. Rewards for upcoming challenge winners include a glamorous photo shoot, a shopping spree and a luxurious day on a ranch, complete with caviar tasting. The losing teams, however, will be required to clean the HELL'S KITCHEN dorms until they are spic-and-span and peel pounds and pounds of potatoes and onions, as well as iron linens and polish and vacuum the restaurant before dinner service. As the competition progresses, the number of contestants will be whittled down until only two chefs are left to compete for the ultimate prize and fulfill their dreams of working in the culinary industry as the winner of HELL'S KITCHEN. HELL'S KITCHEN is produced by ITV StudiosAmerica in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, KentWeed and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers.
