A lot is going on in and out of the kitchen. Twelve hopefuls compete again for “the coveted title of Head Chef at a new fine Italian restaurant at the luxurious Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa and Casino in Las Vegas” while putting up with an abusive boss. This would never be tolerated in any other workplace, so it seems Fox has come up with something it thinks viewers like to see.
Chef Ramsey makes Simon Cowell look like Mister Rogers! This is a show you either love or hate, depending upon how you feel about people crumbling under pressure and being humiliated on national TV.
Of course it must be said, that these contestants came to the show of their own free will, knowing what lies in store as this is not the first season of Hells' Kitchen.
One thing is certain, a chef's life is definitely not for me!

If it is your dream though, then apply to be on a future season of Hell's Kitchen by sending an e-mail to HK4casting@granadaprod.com. Details at Fox/hellskitchen.
