"Hell's Kitchen" 2017 Cast - Season 16 Remaining Contestants

Hell's Kitchen returns tonight, with a combined episode for it's 11th show of the season. "Aerial Maneuvers" and "Fusion Confusion" will be shown in a two-hour time slow from 8 - 10 p.m. ET/PT on FOX. The plot synopsis of tonight's episode reads: The chefs compete in a taste challenge; dinner service honors major contributors to a charity; the chefs pair up to combine the flavors of two countries; guests include Kellita Smith, Jasika Nicole, Patrick Renna and Tommy Savas. Next week, the show will resume it's one-hour time slot of 8 - 9 p.m. ET/PT. Previously, contestants Shaina and Matt were eliminated from the show. Shaina was sent home for mistakes in the kitchen while Matt was sent home for his bad attitude. Matt pretty much left the show with his middle fingers blazing. This leaves eight people left in the competition - four on the red team and four on the blue. But, only one cast member will become head chef at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar at The Venetian Las Vegas. Get to know each of the eight remaining contestants in our cast gallery.
