Hell's Kitchen -- Season Premiere -- "16/15 Chefs Compete" -- 09/22/10

Summary:


Chef Ramsay presents the opportunity of a lifetime for 16 new contestants of HELL'S KITCHEN who will battle it out for the grand prize of winning a head chef position at L.A. Market at the JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE and the opportunity to be the official spokesperson for Rosemount Estate Wines. After setting their eyes on the prize, Chef Ramsay challenges the Red and Blue Teams (women vs. men) to prepare their signature dishes. For the next challenge, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto gives the chefs a lesson in sushi preparation, and Chef Ramsay asks the teams to prepare a platter of perfect sushi. The team that collectively impresses Chef Ramsay will embark on a day of pampering, while the losing team is left to clean the kitchen mess. During the dinner service, the contestants feel the heat as service is delayed and guests begin to file out of the restaurant
Here we go again!! More fun with Gordon and company.

2 hour episodes for the 1st 4 weeks until Lie to Me premieres in November.

Here are the Bios for the Season 8 contestants:

I just wish they'd cut it down to 1 hour. Who has two hours to watch the same 16 losers smoking in a room and throwing each other under the bus week after week?

i'm pretty sure this show is shot with the most AMAZING HD cameras, on the most AMAZING set with the most AMAZING TV reality crew ever.

With all the other shows premiering I can't justify watching this time around. It's a great, guilty-pleasure fill-in when nothing else is on but they're really pushing it too hard now.

I feel your pain. I'm still watching, but there is anywhere from 7-10 hours of programming per night with all the new shows and premieres and 2 hours of Hell's Kitchen even for the 1st 4 weeks is going to feel like a chore to get through.

I will watch and enjoy it even though its pretty much the same thing every season, they make the same food every season. They never change it up. Though I still enjoy it but they dont give this show a break, when one ends a few weeks later it seems the new one starts up.

So, what's the over/under on the number of burned scallops and overcooked risottos this season?

So I'm assuming that this and Master Chef are shot on the same set. The question is though is just how many shows is Ramsey shooting at the same time? Is it possible he filmed 2 HK's and MC all at the same time?

"There are the walnuts on one!" *tosses walnuts off plate*..."There are the walnuts on the other" *tosses walnuts off of other plate*

"Get out!"

I have no idea what he was talking about.

This may be the best cast yet, and by best, I mean "most hilariously incompetent." Was Raj stoned throughout the entire episode?

He is the Restaurant Director at Pétrus in London. Maybe he doesn't want to be on the show anymore?

So far I am really enjoying this season. I love how messed up Raj is and the fact that he thinks he's the best and will dominate the competition. I agree that this may be the best (worst/most entertaining) cast they have assembled yet.

I have no idea what he was talking about.
He wasn't throwing the walnuts off the plate. It was a salad with walnuts in it. He was throwing the lettuce off to show how many walnuts were on each plate.

Ramsay was angry because of the inconsistency. One plate had a half a dozen walnuts and the other had a big mound of them.

The dude that kept screwing up the salad was HILARIOUS. And then he was digging on the sushi guy "You don't even have to COOK it! How can you screw it up?!" What a [email protected] Sushi is a lot harder to make than a salad!

What a bunch of fucking douches! Raj is even more crazy than Matt from s4 and Sabrina might be the biggest bitch in history. It's gonna be an epic season

No babes this time though

Definitely one of the dorkiest groups on the show since it began.

I've watched every season of this show and this is BY FAR the worst group of contestants yet. No eye candy but plenty of bitches and iditos. Raj gets on my last nerve and that dorky bitch who wears the glasses on the tip of her nose I want to sock in the mouth.

Loved the scallops and risotto being jacked up, as usual. Good to have it back again.

I dont get putting the guy with the worst sushi of anyone in the earlier contest on the sushi station. Of course he's going to suck! I dont think I can make myself watch it this time. over it

I haven't been able to bring myself to watch this yet ... just sitting on my DVR. I'm not saying the chefs on MasterChef were anything special, but when they were running previews for Hell's Kitchen, it just looked like a show full of actors.
