CHEF GORDON RAMSAY OPENS THE DOORS OF "HELL'S KITCHEN" ON THE TWO-HOUR SEASON 13 PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, ON FOX

18 Aspiring Chefs Vie For a Head Chef Position at a Gordon Ramsay Restaurant

Host, executive producer and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay fires up a brand-new season of HELL'S KITCHEN with a special, two-hour Season 13 premiere airing Wednesday, Sept. 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Once again, 18 new chefs from all walks of life will be tested like never before as Chef Ramsay puts them through a series of grueling team challenges and dinner services to prove they possess the passion, culinary ability and determination to win a life-changing grand prize: a Head Chef position at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, a total prize value of $250,000. Season 13 also will feature the milestone 200th episode of HELL'S KITCHEN.

Click below to watch/share the opening to HELL'S KITCHEN's most explosive season yet:

In the first hour of the premiere episode (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Chef Ramsay extends star treatment to the newest batch of contestants when they arrive in Hollywood for a silver screen experience. But the Hollywood ending is cut short when Ramsay splits the chefs into two teams - men (Blue) vs. women (Red) - and asks them to present their signature dishes in front of a live audience. Later, the chefs struggle to work together during their first dinner service, and one team's performance is so disappointing that Chef Ramsay forces them to leave the kitchen.

In the second hour (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Red and Blue teams will go head-to-head and dig as many Geoduck clams out of intricate sand sculptures and then recreate Ramsay's Geoduck sashimi. The team that creates 15 perfect dishes will soak up the sun on a luxury yacht with Chef Ramsay, while the losing team will clean up the sand and prepare the Geoduck nigiri and chowder for dinner service. At the end of another fiery dinner service, one more chef will be sent home.

Throughout the season, the contestants will face grueling challenges, including serving a speed brunch for a culinary graduation, impressing an ultra-exclusive club with special guest judges and preparing delicious dishes for "glampers" at a nearby campsite. Also, the dinner services will be more star-studded than ever with celebrities dining at HELL'S KITCHEN, including legendary rock musician Steven Tyler of Aerosmith; talk show host Wendy Williams; NBA Champion Chris Bosh; Olympic gold medalist sprinter Allyson Felix; comedian Penn Jillette, actor Lou Diamond-Phillips and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE judges Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe. As the competition progresses, the number of contestants will be narrowed down until only two chefs are left to compete for the HELL'S KITCHEN title.
