CHEF GORDON RAMSAY HAND-PICKS FRESH CROP OF ASPIRING CHEFS FOR EIGHTH SEASON OF "HELL'S KITCHEN"

Two-Hour Season Premiere Airs Wednesday, September 22, on FOX

Winner To Receive Head Chef Position at L.A. Market And Opportunity To Be Official Spokesperson for Rosemount Estate Wines

Sixteen new aspiring restaurateurs step up to the plate on the piping-hot season premiere of HELL'S KITCHEN airing Wednesday, Sept. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. These culinary contenders will brave not only the heat, but also the sharp tongue of superstar chef Gordon Ramsay as they compete to win a life-changing prize.

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.
