‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Episode Guide (April 29): Season 15 Winning Chef Revealed

“Winner Chosen” Season 15 Finale (04/29/16) – After facing a number of grueling challenges and dinner services, this season’s finalists will compete one last time to see who will be victorious and claim the winning prize of $250,000 and a Head Chef position at BLT Steak at Bally’s Las Vegas.

During the finale, the Top Two finalists will create five stunning dishes, cold and hot appetizers and main entrées featuring chicken, beef and fish.

Each dish will be rated by a group of esteemed judges – Clifford Crooks (Executive Chef, Esquared), Chris Macchia (Executive Chef, The Florentine), Manuel Trevino (Executive Chef, Esquared), David Craine (Executive Chef, BLT Bar & Grill, NY) and Keith Treyball (President, Esquared).

The winner of that round will get first pick on which returning contestant they want on their team for the final dinner service. Find out which finalist will successfully execute the most important dinner service of their career and walk away with title of “Hell’s Kitchen” during the season finale episode of “Hell’s Kitchen” airing Friday, April 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Host, executive producer and award-winning chef and Critics’ Choice Awards nominee Gordon Ramsay fires up a brand-new season of “Hell’s Kitchen” when Season 15 premieres Friday, Jan. 15 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. 18 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-favorite 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,” comedian 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 of “Hell’s Kitchen,” 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.

“Hell’s Kitchen” is produced by ITV Entertainment in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers.
