‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Episode Guide (Dec. 8): The Chefs Compete in a Fish Challenge

“Catch Of The Day” (12/08/17) – Special guest judge and fish-cooking expert Chef Michael Cimarusti joins Chef Ramsay, as the remaining contestants compete in a special challenge involving creatures of the sea.

Then, during dinner service, the chefs aim to impress a host of VIP guests, including actor Aleks Paunovic, rapper E-40, professional dancer Cheryl Burke and actor Dan Bucatinsky. With two chefs fighting bitterly for authority and another struggling to communicate, Chef Ramsay is less than pleased. Find out who doesn’t make the cut in an all-new episode of “Hell’s Kitchen” airing Friday, Dec. 8 (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.
