Hell’s Kitchen And Gordon Ramsay Return On March 12 For Season 11

February 28, 2013 04:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Ever since the season 10 finale of  Hell’s Kitchen, fans have been itching for more! Well, guess what? Gordon Ramsay is back next month to put 20 hopefuls through the ultimate cooking competition that can only be Hell’s Kitchen! Details inside…

That’s right folks, our favorite culinary competition is back on FOX next month! Hell’s Kitchen returns for its 11th season on March 12, 2013 – with a new twist!

Check out the news hot from FOX:

For the first time in HELL’S KITCHEN history, the newest batch of 20 aspiring restaurateurs will head to Las Vegas to present their signature dishes before a live audience. The contestants will split into two teams – the red team (women) and blue team (men) – to show Chef Ramsay and the live audience that they have what it takes to make their mark in the restaurant world. The winning team with the most impressive dishes will earn a VIP night on the town and attend a special concert, while the losing team will take a long, sweltering eight-hour journey back to Los Angeles on a school bus.

This season, the chefs will compete in an obstacle course involving lobsters and prepare a meal for hungry runners and world-renowned athletes as they vie for a chance to win lavish rewards, including a luxury spa day on a yacht and a trip to wine country on a private jet. Meanwhile, the losing teams will scale hundreds of pounds of fish or scrub down HELL’S KITCHEN in preparation for dinner service. Throughout the competition, the teams will be winnowed down until two chefs are left standing to compete for the ultimate prize.
