GORDON RAMSAY NAMES THE TOP FOUR CHEFS IN "HELL'S KITCHEN"

Will Lustberg, Paul Niedermann, Tommy Stevens and Elise Wims To Compete Head-to-Head for Grand Prize Monday, Sept. 19 on FOX

Last night, Chef Gordon Ramsay turned up the heat on HELL'S KITCHEN by announcing the Top 4 chefs: Will Lustberg from Jersey City, NJ; Paul Niedermann from Davie, FL; Tommy Stevens from Brewster, NY; and Elise Wims from Pittsburgh, PA.

In the two-hour finale event on Monday, Sept. 19 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Chef Ramsay will put the final four through one of the toughest challenges ever on HELL'S KITCHEN. But the biggest test comes at dinner service, when Chef Ramsay judges the finalists' leadership skills as each chef demonstrates how they would run a kitchen. The two chefs who survive this dramatic dinner service will lay it all on the line to prove to Chef Ramsay that they deserve the life-changing grand prize - a head chef position at the legendary BLT Steak in New York City.

I was in rare form that night and felt that I finally had the brigade system down. Chef Ramsay let me know how impressed he was with me and it was a great moment for me as a chef."
What Chef Ramsay Taught Me: "Chef Ramsay taught me to never give up and to strive for perfection in everything I do. He taught me discipline and, most importantly, to own up to your mistakes, and learn from them. Chef Ramsay is a great chef, a wonderful person, and he has changed my life forever."
