FOR FIRST TIME EVER, ROOKIES TAKE ON VETERANS IN THE ALL-NEW SEASON OF "HELL'S KITCHEN," PREMIERING FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, ON FOX

Winner to Receive Position at Gordon Ramsay HELL'S KITCHEN Restaurant at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas

For the 18th season of HELL'S KITCHEN, premiering Friday, Sept. 28 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Gordon Ramsay's hit cooking competition series returns with a twist: pitting veteran contestants against rookies. For the first time in the show's history, eight accomplished chefs who have competed in previous seasons - and lost - will be brought back for a shot at redemption and tested like never before, as they go up against eight ambitious rookies.

Each week, the chefs will be put through a series of grueling culinary challenges and dinner services to prove to Chef Ramsay they have what it takes to win a life-changing grand prize: a position at the world's first Gordon Ramsay HELL'S KITCHEN Restaurant at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and $250,000.

In the premiere episode, the rookie chefs will cook up the best versions of their signature dishes and the veterans will attempt to create those same dishes, foregoing the making of their own signature dishes, in the process. The winning team will be rewarded with a first-class meal at restaurant Charcoal and will be joined by Ramsay.
