Gordon Ramsay returns to Fox tonight at 9 p.m. ET for the first of two seasons of Hell’s Kitchen that were filmed back to back. It was the first reality show to officially change its schedule in response to the writers’ strike, although that ended back in February.
Besides the return of the three previous winners as guest judges of some kind, this season promises the biggest cast yet, with 15 chefs/Gordon Ramsay bait. Sous chef Mary Ann has been replaced by Gloria Felix. The show’s location also apparently changed to Culver City, according to Eater LA.
The prize has also changed, as Ramsay will hire the winner to work at the London West Hollywood, his new restaurant. “I want to put my money where my mouth is and prove to the industry that any winner of ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ is more than qualified and capable of standing alone in my kitchen,” he told reporters.
