‘Hell’s Kitchen’ 2015 Cast: Meet the Season 14 Contestants

Hell's Kitchen 2015 Contestants

There are 18 contestants in the game for Hell's Kitchen 2015. On the premiere episode of the 14th season, the contestants dive right into the first challenge, after Chef Gordon Ramsay splits the chefs into two teams: men (blue) and women (red). Their signature dishes are then presented to him in front of a live audience. The winning team gets a night out with William Shatner, while the losing team prepares the very first dinner service of the season. As the contestants struggle, Ramsay actually kicks one team out of the kitchen, making for an entertaining premiere. Ramsay has of course returned as head chef with Andi van Willigan and James Avery again as sous chefs.
