10 Best Kitchen Projects - Hell's Kitchen (U.S. TV series) - Netflix

Hell's Kitchen is an American reality competition television series based on the British series of the same name. Broadcast on Fox, it is hosted by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. Two teams of chefs compete for a job as head chef at a restaurant. A typical episode begins with a challenge between the teams; the winning team gets some sort of a reward that usually involves some sort of recreational activity outside the Hell's Kitchen, while the losers are given “punishment” that usually involves some sort of menial task. The second part is a dinner service, where each team works in their own kitchen, attempting, under close and hypercritical supervision from Chef Ramsay, to complete the service without getting kicked out before finishing for too many errors. The usual wrap-up involves whichever team is declared the loser of the dinner service choosing two of their own to be up for elimination. There are many possible variations; both teams being kicked out before the end of dinner service is an example that has occurred on several occasions. At the end of the 13th season, it was announced that it was renewed for two more seasons through season 16. On September 9, 2016, Fox renewed Hell's Kitchen for seasons 17 and 18. The seventeenth season premiered on September 29, 2017. The eighteenth season will premiere on September 28, 2018.

10 Best Kitchen Projects - Format - Netflix

Hell's Kitchen is a reality television show that uses a progressive elimination format to narrow down a field of 12 to 20 aspiring chefs to a single winner over the course of one season. The U.S. version of Hell's Kitchen follows the format of the UK version though the show is recorded and not performed live, nor is there audience participation in the elimination of chefs. The show is produced at Hell's Kitchen, a modified warehouse in Los Angeles that includes the restaurant, dual kitchen facilities and a dormitory where the chefs reside while on the show. They are also given knife sets that they get to keep, regardless of their progress. At the start of each season, Gordon Ramsay breaks the chefs into two teams. Most often this puts women on the red team and men on the blue; each is given a chef's jacket with panels of that color on the shoulders. The chefs remain on these teams throughout most of the competition; Ramsay may reassign a chef to the other team if the team numbers are uneven or if he feels the chef will perform better on the other team. Each episode typically includes a challenge and a dinner service, followed by the elimination of a chef. When only five or six chefs remain, they are brought into a single common team wearing black-panelled jackets. From this point onward, they compete individually to be one of the final two.
