‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Episode Guide (Sept. 29): All-Stars Clash in the Season 17 Premiere

“All-Stars Arrive” Season 17 Premiere (09/29/17) – 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 in the season 17 premiere episode of “Hell’s Kitchen” airing Friday, Sept. 29 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Season 17 of “Hell’s Kitchen” will welcome the newest batch of determined chefs who will brave Chef Gordon Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he puts them through an intense culinary academy. Throughout the season, the competitors will face a series of Ramsay’s grueling challenges to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win a life-changing grand prize.

The chefs will leave the pleasantries at the door as the pressure to impress Chef Ramsay will reach a boiling point. Before Chef Ramsay determines which individual chefs are worthy of a black jacket, the contestants must prove their ability to work in teams. The rewards for winners of upcoming challenges will be lavish and memorable, while the punishments will be hellish.

Over the course of the competition, the number of contestants will be whittled down until only two chefs are left to compete head-to-head for the ultimate prize and fulfill their dreams of working in the culinary industry as the winner of “Hell’s Kitchen”

Ramsay recently announced plans for the first-of-its-kind “Hell’s Kitchen” restaurant to open at Caesars Palace Las Vegas this winter.
