Like the original celebrity edition of the United Kingdom series, Hell's Kitchen will be hosted by Gordon Ramsay. a former soccer-player-turned-celebrity-chef. A combination of NBC's The Restaurant and The Apprentice, Hell's Kitchen will feature twelve wannabe restaurateurs competing to win ownership of a new Los Angeles restaurant that the group will be assisting Ramsay in opening.
In addition to working together, Hell's Kitchen's chef-wannabes will also live together in a house that will keep the contestants under cameras 24/7. Each week, the perfectionist Ramsay will slice and dice the contestants, sending home those who he thinks "can't stand the heat."
