‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Season 18 Cast: Rookies Vs. Veterans

For the 18th season of “Hell’s Kitchen,” which premieres Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, the reality TV show is changing up its usual recipe, as a Blue Team of eight contestants who previously lost in earlier seasons — dubbed the veterans — goes up against a Red Team of eight untested rookie chefs. An added twist: For the first time since Season 1, the groups will consist of cooks of both genders. Meet the players, both old and new, before they are stressed out by the ever-demanding overseer of “Hell’s Kitchen,” Gordon Ramsay.
