FOX is taking fans back to hell tonight, culinary hell that is. “Hell’s Kitchen” returns Wednesday, Sep. 10 for Season 13 and host Gordon Ramsay is back to put 18 new aspiring chefs through the ringer to see who comes out on top. The premiere will be a special two-hour, double episode premiere beginning at 8 p.m. EDT (the episodes will be interrupted by President Barrack Obama’s nationally televised remarks at 9 p.m. EDT).
The winner of “Hell’s Kitchen” receives the opportunity to become the Head Chef at one of Gordon Ramsay’s first class restaurants.
