[via press release from FOX]

ONLY FOUR CHEFS REMAIN ON "HELL'S KITCHEN"

Mary Poehnelt, Jon Scallion, Cyndi Stanimirov and Ja'Nel Witt Compete on Next All-New Episode of HELL'S KITCHEN Thursday, July 18, on FOX

Susan Heaton Eliminated from Competition

Season 11 Finale Airs Thursday, July 25 on FOX

Tonight, four chefs moved one step closer to becoming the winner of HELL'S KITCHEN when Chef Gordon Ramsay eliminated Susan Heaton, a culinary student from Whittier, CA. The Top Four chefs are Mary Poehnelt, from Belchertown, MA; Jon Scallion, from York, PA; Cyndi Stanimirov, from Queens, NY; and Ja'Nel Witt, from Houston, TX.

In the next all-new episode airing Thursday, July 18 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top Four finalists must rely on their senses of sight, taste and smell to identify the ingredients in Chef Ramsay's dish and recreate it. The chef whose dish comes the closest to Chef Ramsay's, earns a shopping spree, while the losing chefs clear out the dorms on moving day. Later, Chef Ramsay makes one of the season's most difficult decisions and sends two of the four chefs home.

Then, on the special two-hour season finale airing Thursday, July 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top Two chefs compete head-to-head in a cooking challenge, judged by some of the most famous chefs in Los Angeles. Later, the finalists prepare menus for the most important dinner service of their lives. Tune in to see who will be the next HELL'S KITCHEN winner and earn a life-changing grand prize: a Head Chef position working under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace.

The Top Four chefs reveal the most important lesson they have learned on HELL'S KITCHEN:

Mary Poehnelt

Jon Scallion
Age: 27
Hometown: York, PA
Occupation: Chef de Cuisine

Jon's most important lesson learned: "...not to give in. Always push. There is always light at the end of the tunnel and sometimes you have to slow down and pace yourself to get a proper result."

Cyndi Stanimirov
Age: 25
Hometown: Queens, NY
Occupation: Head Chef Cyndi's most important lesson learned: "...have self-confidence. Confidence is the key to being successful in anything that you do. People will trust, follow and learn from a confident person."

Ja'Nel Witt
Age: 31
Hometown: Houston, TX
Occupation: Executive Chef

Ja'Nel's most important lesson learned: "...never compromise your standards - not just in the kitchen, but in life. Don't be happy with just being good. Always aim to be the best! Never stop learning or practicing or striving to achieve a higher goal, because that's how the best become the best."
