In Hell's Kitchen, aspiring chefs are put through an intense culinary academy to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win a life-changing grand prize.
Chef Ramsay shakes things up and introduces a series of three challenges that will determine the recipients of a black jacket. For the first time, there will be no reward, no punishment and no dinner service. During the first challenge, each chef must create a dish, knowing that surprise ingredients will be introduced to them along the way that they must use. In the second challenge, all chefs will receive the same ingredients to begin with and must create a unique dish based upon them. Finally, the competition heats up in the last challenge as two chefs go head-to-head for the final black jacket.
The remaining chefs go head-to-head in a challenge for which Chef Ramsay provides the first three ingredients, but the chefs must race to hit a buzzer in order to get their final three. Tension is high as the chefs try to impress not only Chef Ramsay, but guest judge, Jenn Louis - chef and owner of Lincoln/Sunshine Tavern. The winner receives a special prize - a luxurious overnight trip to Las Vegas, where they will stay in the Presidential Suite at The Venetian Hotel. Meanwhile, the other chefs are left to sort trash for recycling day. During dinner service, the chefs try to keep it together as guest diners TV anchor Neil Everett ("Sportscenter"), comedian Pauly Shore (host of podcast "Interested") and actor Erik Griffin ("Workaholics") watch from the dining room. Find out who will impress.
After two chefs are eliminated, the remaining contestants must create a unique dining experience for a large group of well-known chefs that include guest judges Bruce Kalman (executive chef and owner of Union), Steve Samson (chef and owner of Sotto), Mette Williams (executive chef of Culina) and Alessio Biagini (chef de cusine at Cecconi's). The winner of this challenge is taken on a helicopter tour of Los Angeles with Chef Andi and is treated to a delicious lunch at Firefly with Chef Ramsay. The losing chefs on the other hand, are forced to wrap presents for the Hell's Kitchen staff, steam their clothes and polish their shoes. At the dinner service, actress Tara Reid ("Sharknado"), pro baseball player Adrian Gonzalez, actor Matt Letscher ("Her," "The Carrie Diaries") and TV personality Taylor Ann Hasselhoff join as guest diners, and each chef is given the opportunity to run the pass, while Chef Andi and Chef Aaron surreptitiously try to sabotage them.
It's down to the Top Two in the Season 16 finale of HELL'S KITCHEN. As both finalists work on their menus for the last dinner service, Chef Ramsay surprises them with a special trip to the luxurious Ken Paves Salon, where they will receive a makeover before heading to the premiere of a new musical. When the two arrive at the theater, they are greeted by actor Rob Morrow and learn they are not actually seeing a musical, but are instead jumping into their final challenge, for which they must create four dishes in the span of an hour, all while in front of a huge audience! Walter Manzke, Michael Cimarusti, Susan Feniger and John Kunel serve as guest judges and help decide the winner of the challenge. As the contestants move into their final dinner service, they are welcomed by celebrity guest diners MLB Player C.J. Wilson, actress Andrea Roth, actor Danny Trejo and actress Naomi Grossman. Find out who is the winner.
It's an all-new season and for the first time ever in HELL'S KITCHEN history, Chef Ramsay invites 16 All-Stars back to the kitchen for a second chance to prove they have what it takes. Old rivalries are renewed and new alliances are formed, but in the end, only one of these all-stars will claim the grand prize – a head chef position at the brand-new Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen Restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas and $250,000. During the premiere episode, Chef Ramsay surprises the 16 former Black Jacket chefs with a twist on the infamous Signature Dish Challenge. The winning team will enjoy the ride of their lives at Skyslide in downtown Los Angeles, followed by a dinner with Chef Ramsay and special guest Wolfgang Puck at his restaurant, WP24. Meanwhile, the losing team will stay behind to clean up and prep both kitchens for the upcoming dinner service. The next day, Ramsay gathers the chefs in the newly redesigned dining room for a huge announcement that will leave them stunned. Find out which all-star makes the biggest first impression.
The 16 chefs are given 40 minutes to execute their first individual challenge – the Bar Menu Challenge. Then, the chefs prep for the season's first dinner service, as they adapt to an all-new menu. For the first time ever, the restaurant will host Chef Tables on opening night with special VIP guests – singer Jordin Sparks, actor Joe Montegna, actor French Stewart, R&B singer Keith Sweat and singer Kirstin Maldonado from Pentatonix. One team struggles to bounce back after a rocky start, while the other team hits its stride and finishes strong. And after a disappointing dinner service, Chef Ramsay makes a shocking decision during elimination.
Chef Ramsay challenges the remaining chefs to complete a four-tiered shellfish tower with "fast hands." Each team is divided into four teams of two, with each pair completing one tier at a time. The first team to finish all four tiers wins and is rewarded with a glamorous day in Malibu. Meanwhile, the losing team must prep for a massive fish delivery. Then, the dinner service begins with a rocky start, as Chef Ramsay sends multiple entrees back to the kitchen and temporarily kicks out one of the All-Stars. In the end, one team manages to improve its performance, while the other fails to impress. During an intense elimination, another contestant is sent home for showing a lack of commitment.
