Season 15

Eighteen new chefs from across the country will be tested and challenged as Chef Ramsay puts them through a series of grueling challenges and dinner services to prove they have what it takes to win the Hell's Kitchen title and a Head Chef position at BLT Steak at Bally's Las Vegas.

Throughout the season the contestants will face challenging tasks, including a (rubber) duck hunting competition, preparing dishes for 100 high school students, a catered wedding reception for Hell's Kitchen sous chef Andi and the fan-favourite blind taste test challenge.

Celebrity diners at Hell's Kitchen this season include TV personality Kris Jenner (Keeping Up with the Kardashians franchise), rapper Lil' Jon, musician/producer Steve Aoki, rapper/actor The Game, musician Flo Rida, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, comedian Bill Engvall, Cesar Millan (Cesar 911), dancers from So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars, America's Got Talent winner Terry Fator, burlesque entertainer Dita Von Teese, actor Omar Miller (Ballers), actor Sean Carrigan (The Young and the Restless) and Olympian swimmers Jessica Hardy and Dominik Meichtry.

In the Season 15 premiere, Chef Gordon Ramsay welcomes the newest bunch of contestants into the kitchen.

The steaks are high when the contestants travel to Las Vegas and see the kitchen where this season's winner will work as a Head Chef: BLT Steak at Bally's Las Vegas. And, for the first time in Hell's Kitchen history, they will compete in that kitchen for the signature dish team challenge.

The winning team will earn a ride on the High Roller - the world's tallest Ferris wheel - and VIP service at Drai's Nightclub while the losing team prepares a Vegas buffet service, which includes peeling 50 lbs. of shrimp and 1,000 lbs. of potatoes.

Later during their first dinner service, one of the teams will fail early on in the service, prompting Chef Ramsay to kick them out of the kitchen.
