A new season of “Hell’s Kitchen” is underway with the winner slated to be revealed on February 1 of next year. This edition of the reality competition series hosted by Gordon Ramsay pits eight rookies against eight veterans. Three of those returning contestants came tantalizing close to winning a chance to be a chef at one of Ramsay’s restaurants.
Last season “Hell’s Kitchen” featured only players who had appeared on a previous season. The winner was Michelle Tribble, who had competed on season 14 and came in third behind winner Meghan Gill and runner-up Torrece Gregoire.
