THE CHEFS MUST FACE THEIR FAILURES
ON A SPECIAL TWO-HOUR ENCORE OF "HELL'S KITCHEN"
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 29, ON FOX
The remaining contestants prepare for their next challenge - a blind taste test during which each team must determine the taste of pureed baby foods. During service, both teams start off strong, as they try to impress guest celebrity diners - actor Josh McDermitt ("The Walking Dead") and TV host Jeannie Mai ("The Real") - but excuses and miscommunication ultimately lead both teams to failure. Then, the chefs are introduced to three guest judges - Adam Fleischman, founder of Umami Burger; Sang Yoon, chef and owner of Father's Office; and Christina Wilson, executive chef of Gordon Ramsay's BURGR - who will all determine which team gets to party at the Playboy Mansion and which team gets stuck cleaning up the LA River. Later, the teams try to impress celebrity guest diners, including 2009 Playmate of the Month Crystal Hefner, "Fashion Police" executive producer Melissa Rivers, TV hosts and producers Drew and Jonathan Scott and actress Ashley Green in the "Spoon Fed/Dancing in the Grotto" special two-hour encore of HELL'S KITCHEN airing Thursday, Dec. 29 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
