Recap Image

Aired: 3/12/13

The newest crop of Hell's Kitchen hopefuls meet the "HK" bus in Los Angeles - but instead of being transported to Hell's Kitchen, they return to the airport to take another plane heading to Las Vegas.

In Sin City the Hell's Kitchen crew arrive at a theater packed with a live audience. Gordon Ramsay enters to cheers from the crowd and welcomes the contestants. He then introduces Chef Andi, who will oversee the women's team, and a new addition to the staff, Chef James, who will work with the men's team.

The winner of this year's competition will be awarded the position of head chef at the brand-new Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grille at Caesars Palace, with a salary of $250,000. And for the first time ever in the history of the show, the signature dish challenge will take place in front of a live audience.

Contestants have 45 minutes to come up with something stunning that represents them on a plate. The cooks retreat to the kitchen to begin their first challenge. Forty-five minutes later, the two teams emerge in the theater to present their dishes to Chef Ramsay and an audience of 2,500.
