If you are a fan of FOX’s ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ series, then you have at least two more years of streaming ahead of you. The network announced today that it has ordered a 17th and 18th season of the Gordon Ramsay culinary competition series.
In the hit cooking series, aspiring restaurateurs are put through an intense culinary academy to prove they have the endurance and skill to compete and win a life-changing grand prize. If you think you have what it takes to tackle Ramsey’s challenge, the show is currently looking for the next batch of talented, passionate and skilled chefs. The bar is being raised and the series is looking for chefs and accomplished line cooks with several years of experience in professional kitchens. Eligible chefs will have the opportunity to audition in cities across the country for the chance to become the next HELL’S KITCHEN winner. The nationwide open casting calls begin Monday, Sept. 12 in Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY; and Atlanta, GA. The search will continue in Chicago, IL; and Dallas, TX, on Friday, Sept. 16.
For additional casting information, including forms and eligibility requirements, you can visit the show’s official site here. Just be prepared to be mocked and screamed at for your duration on the show, until you are booted from the kitchen – or walk away a champion.
Season 16 of HELL’S KITCHEN premieres Friday, Sept. 23 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT), on FOX, when 18 ambitious chefs go head-to-head to impress Ramsay with their skills in hopes of winning a grand prize that includes a Head Chef position at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar at The Venetian Las Vegas.
HELL’S KITCHEN is produced by ITV Entertainment in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers.
