‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Episode Guide (Nov. 17): The Weakest Link Chef Revealed

“Trimming Fat” (11/17/17) – Chef Ramsay decides to give the 12 remaining contestants a tutorial on how to best prepare six of the most popular HELL’S KITCHEN dishes. Following the lesson, Ramsay informs them of their next challenge – each team will have 25 minutes to recreate all six dishes.

But what the contestants don’t know is that every three minutes, each team will have to select one chef to kick out of the kitchen, thus leaving more work for the remaining chefs and intensifying the “Last Man Standing” challenge.

Later, the contestants receive a big surprise when they find out that in lieu of a Dinner Service, they will compete in this week’s “Fight For Your Life” Challenge — during which the three weakest chefs from each team will be tasked to recreate Gordon’s signature dish, Tagliatelle with Oysters.

The chef with the worst dish will be immediately eliminated in an all-new episode of “Hell’s Kitchen” airing Friday, Nov. 17 (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.
