Gordon Ramsay, the Michelin-starred chef that contestants love to hate returns for a ninth action-packed season of Hell’s Kitchen. Back behind the hotplate and cooking on gas, Gordon is certain to make temperatures rise as more restaurateur hopefuls pit their wits and cooking skills against each other, under his watchful eye. In the season premiere, eighteen excited new chefs embark on a journey to cook their way to the top and win the grand prize – to become the head chef at BLT Steak in New York City, with a salary of $250,000. It’s a battle of the sexes, as Chef Ramsay divides the group into a red team (women) and a blue team (men) to begin their first challenge – to prepare their signature dishes. Things turn chaotic when the blue team hits a speed bump during the first dinner service and Chef Ramsay loses his cool, shutting down both kitchens. Despite the night’s mishaps, Chef Ramsay must declare one team the winner and decide which chef from the losing team will be the first to burn out
It’s Worth What?: Wednesday, July 20 at 7pm ET/PT (7MT/ 6CT)
What’s worth more: Princess Diana’s one-of-a-kind dress or Elvis’s iconic white suit and cape? Makes you really start to wonder, doesn't it? Hosted by Cedric “The Entertainer” It’s Worth What? is a game show that taps into America’s love for cost and value. In each round, a pair of contestants is taken through a never-ending flow of collectibles, antiques, near-priceless treasures and various objects ranging from a life-size replica of the White House to William Shatner's kidney stone that was auctioned off for charity. Then, they go through a series of challenges that escalate in level of difficulty, tasking the contestants with discerning the price of the items. If they successfully complete the challenges, contestants can win up to $1 million.
