'Hell's Kitchen' Season 20: Air time, how to live stream, chefs, judge and all you need to know about FOX show
What's on the other side of the finishing line? "A life-changing grand prize, including a Head Chef position at Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas and the title of 'Hell's Kitchen' winner," reads the FOX website.
To have a culinary master like Ramsay guide a group of young and aspiring chefs - what's not to like? And it helps immensely when the production focuses on getting impressive food shots, which immediately lifts the soul of the show.
'Hell's Kitchen' will premiere on FOX on May 31, Monday at 8/7c. For more information, check your local listings. The new installment comes less than six months after Season 19 aired, which means they were shot back to back.
How to live stream
Season 19 episodes can be watched here.
For the first time, the showrunners are welcoming individuals belonging to a younger age bracket. As many as 18 chefs of 23 years of age or less will compete to win the coveted prize and title for the landmark season. "Each week, the competition gets more intense, as these 'Young Guns are put through rigorous culinary challenges, reaping high stakes rewards and punishments, all with a Sin City flare. Only those who possess the right combination of ingredients will continue in the competition until one is named the winner," the site further says.
Since they are new to the business, they will have help from Christina Wilson and Jason Santos. Together, they will serve as mentors to the two teams the 18 chefs have been split into. "They have such a different, fresh perspective on the world, on food — it’s really neat to see," Wilson told TV Insider and added: "And quite honestly, as much as we hold their hands through this competition, they were teaching me, Gordon, and Jason some fun new things too, and that was exciting for us."
Ramsay will resume hosting duties, while Alex Lenik, Antonio Ruiz, Ava Harren, Brynn Gibson, Emily Hersh, Jayaun Smith, Josie Clemens, Keanu Hogan, Kevin Argueta, Kiya Willhelm, Matthew Francis Johnson, Megan Gill, Morgana Vesey, Payton Cooper, Samuel Garman, Steven Glenn, Trenton Garvey, and Victoria Sonora will compete for the big prize.
While Ramsay will be doubling up as judge and executive producer, joining him as EP will be Arthur Smith, Kent Weed, Kenny Rosen, and Bernie Schaeffer.
