Hell's Kitchen Full Episode Guide

  • The chefs are surprised with winter jackets and then must compete in a sled race for an advantage in the upcoming challenge, during which the two teams must prepare their best winter soups. The winning team is rewarded with a luxurious day and night in Palm Springs. After a troublesome dinner service, Chef Ramsay makes an extreme change in the teams.

  • The chefs are tasked with serving lunch to a room full of Marines and prepare dishes that represent the air (chicken parmesan), the land (NY Strip) and the sea (fish and chips). The first team to serve all of the Marines on their side of the dining room wins the challenge and is awarded a day at Paramount Ranch, where they will have the opportunity to star in their own western film. Later, the most dramatic dinner service ever ends with a shocking contestant walk-out.

  • For the first time ever on HELL'S KITCHEN, Chef Gordon Ramsay invites eight previous contestants back to the kitchen to battle against eight ambitious rookies for a chance at a life-changing grand prize: an Executive Chef position at the world's first Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen Restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. In the first challenge of the season, the rookie chefs will cook up the best versions of their signature dishes within 45 minutes, while the veterans will attempt to create the same dishes, foregoing the making of their own signatures in the process. The winning team will be rewarded with a first-class meal at restaurant Charcoal and will be joined by Chef Ramsay, while the losers must prep the kitchen for dinner service the next day.

  • The final two All-Stars selected one assistant from the series to help in the finale.

  • Chef Ramsay informs the remaining three All-Stars that all of them will compete in the finale. As a reward, Ramsay invites the contestants to a pampered retreat at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. However, what the contestants think is a relaxing vacation is soon turned upside-down when Ramsay reveals this will be their last challenge before the finale. The three finalists must cook and perfect their menus and only two will advance. Then, the final two All-Stars pick from the season's past contestants to join them on their team for the final dinner service. With a head chef position at the first ever Hell's Kitchen flagship restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and a salary of a quarter of a million dollars on the line it all comes down to this. Find out who is named the winner.

  • When the families come to visit, the four remaining All-Stars are feeling extra-motivated to succeed. For this week's challenge, the chefs must choose a gift, each of which contains a secret ingredient on which they must base their dish. They will then anonymously serve their dishes to each family, and whoever gets the most votes, wins a day in Malibu with Chef Ramsay and his/her family. Then, actresses Gabrielle Dennis ("The Game") and Anna Konkle (NEW GIRL) join dinner service, during which each contestant will have the opportunity to run the kitchen, but will be tested, as certain dishes will have the wrong ingredient. Find out who makes it to the final three.

  • The remaining All-Stars must instruct athletes Candice Park (WNBA), Jordan Wieber (2012 Olympic Gold Medalist), Ricky Williams (Heisman Trophy Winner, Univ. Of Texas), Shawne Merriman (NFL football linebacker) and Reggie Miller (NBA Hall of Famer) to cook their signature dishes

  • Chef Ramsay reveals to the remaining All-Stars that they will be competing for the coveted black jacket by facing a series of three difficult challenges: "Taste It, Now Make It," in which contestants must use their senses to recreate a dish; "Five Domes," in which contestants have 30 minutes to create a cohesive restaurant quality dish using mystery ingredients hidden under domes; and "Free For All," in which the All-Stars must make a dish of their choice using ingredients picked out by Ramsay.

  • The All-Stars must make three restaurant-quality pasta dishes with only $20 to purchase ingredients, which tests their ability to maximize their profits.

  • The remaining chefs face a Blind Taste Test Challenge of figuring out what spices they're sampling.

  • Chef Michael Cimarusti joins Gordon while the remaining contestants are challenged to use creatures from the sea.

  • The contestants are challenged to use exotic meats eaten by early humans, such as boar, venison and elk, to prepare a dish with five other ingredients.

  • The remaining chefs recreate six popular dishes in just 25 minutes, but one chef must be removed from the kitchen every three minutes during the challenge.

  • The chefs must create a pizza inspired by their assigned country; Marino and special guest judge Steve Samson determine the winner; a dinner service and elimination.

  • Tensions in the dorms approach an all-time high in light of an unexpected change; the chefs are put in pairs as they prepare various types of fish.

  • The remaining chefs must prepare a dish featuring their chosen protein and ingredient chosen by a certain game of chance they play beforehand.

  • The remaining chefs are divided into teams of two and must construct a four-tiered tower made with shellfish.

  • The chefs have 40 minutes to participate in the first individual challenge before preparing for a dinner service for celebrity guests.

  • It's an all-new season and for the first time ever in HELL'S KITCHEN history, Chef Ramsay invites 16 All-Stars back to the kitchen for a second chance to prove they have what it takes. Old rivalries are renewed and new alliances are formed, but in the end, only one of these all-stars will claim the grand prize – a head chef position at the brand-new Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen Restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas and $250,000. During the premiere episode, Chef Ramsay surprises the 16 former Black Jacket chefs with a twist on the infamous Signature Dish Challenge. The winning team will enjoy the ride of their lives at Skyslide in downtown Los Angeles, followed by a dinner with Chef Ramsay and special guest Wolfgang Puck at his restaurant, WP24. Meanwhile, the losing team will stay behind to clean up and prep both kitchens for the upcoming dinner service. The next day, Ramsay gathers the chefs in the newly redesigned dining room for a huge announcement that will leave them stunned. Fi
