About Hell’s Kitchen:
Format of the show includes two teams of Chefs competing for the position of Head Chef at a top restaurant. Both the teams get to face the similar challenge in every show. The winning team gets a reward that is a “field trip” outside the Hell’s Kitchen, while the losing team is given a “punishment” that involves some kind of grueling task.
The second part is a dinner service, where each team works in its own kitchen, attempting to prepare the complete menu without many errors.
Now, the team losing at the Dinner service would itself name two members from its team for elimination. Ramsay reassembles the teams in the dining hall and hears out the nominations from the losing team. He may also nominate other chefs for elimination if he believes it appropriate. After giving these nominees the chance to defend themselves, Ramsay selects one to hand over their jacket and “leave Hell’s Kitchen.
While leaving the Chefs give their final speech about their experience on the show.
At the end only two finalists are left to compete, they are then given the opportunity to develop their own menu and lead a brigade of former competitors through a full dinner service on their own. Ramsay uses his own observations and those from the diners and other sources to decide who the winning chef is. Now considering all their flaws and qualities, Ramsay announces a winner. The winning chef receives two prizes including the opportunity to work as the head chef at a restaurant of Ramsay’s choosing, as well as a cash prize of $250,000.
