Hell's Kitchen USA

Hell's Kitchen USA S11

Multi-award-winning British chef Gordon Ramsay returns with the eleventh series of his US cooking competition.

This year there are more contestants than ever before as 20 aspiring chefs have signed up to take on the gruelling challenge – but only one of them can go all the way. At stake is the head chef position at Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at the world-famous Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Each week, the no-nonsense chef puts the competing cooks to the test with a host of physical and mental challenges, as well as the regular culinary tasks which lead to an elimination each week. Gordon's high standards and tough talking attitude often lead to high drama and confrontation as the assembled chefs struggle to keep up.

Which of the 20 hopefuls has enough gastronomic flair – along with the ability to work under pressure – to finally impress chef Ramsay and cook their way to the top?
