Fresh out the oven, FOX has just released the contestants for Season 8 of Hell’s Kitchen, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). This season, 16 new hopefuls will battle it out under the supervision of the short-fused Gordon Ramsay with the hopes to come out on top as the main dish.

This season, teams will face a series of new challenges which include baking in the all-new pizza ovens, catering a high school prom, introducing sushi to the HELL’S KITCHEN menu, serving breakfast to hard-working EMTs and celebrating the series’ milestone 100th episode with a black-tie dinner service. As it gets down to the the end, two finalists will compete head-to-head to impress Ramsay and one lucky chef will walk away with a head chef role at LA Market at the prestigious JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE. They’ll also have the opportunity to be the official spokesperson for Rosemount Estate Wines.
