We’ll be seeing more of Gordon Ramsay again as Hell’s Kitchen return tonight, June 4, 2012. It’s the season premiere of the Fox’s cooking reality show. Tonight is the first part of the two-part season premiere. Airing from 8pm to 9pm ET, be prepared for some drama again as the chefs deal with the challenges and pressure to win the competition.
There will be 18 chefs who will compete to be the head chef working under Executive Chef Kevin Kee at Gordon Ramsay Steak in Paris, Las Vegas. Like in the previous seasons, the contestants will be split into two teams. It’s men vs women. They will be asked to prepare their signature dishes where the winning team will be treated to a delicious dinner which will be prepared by Dave Levey (season 3 winner) and Rock Harper (season 6 winner). Meanwhile, the losing team will, as usual, scrub down the kitchen to prepare for their first dinner service.
The pressure is on during the dinner service. The teams will begin to fracture and commit mistakes even before the first course is served. Who will make the first mistake?
Again, we are here to provide you with the results every week. Follow us on Twitter, add us on Google Plus or join us on Facebook for updates on Hell’s Kitchen and other reality shows. Find out who will be the first contestant to get eliminated on Hell’s Kitchen tonight. Results will be posted.

Update: Tavon gets eliminated.
Chef Ramsay says this is going to be the most intense season. He pushes this season further than any other.
Sous chef Scott greets the contestants. He will be testing their commitment. He shaved his hair for Chef Ramsay and asks the contestants who is willing to make that commitment. There are a few volunteers until Ramsay stop them and asks them to make their signature dishes. They have 45 minutes to prepare.
The teams are men vs women. The winner of this challenge is the women. Their score is 5 while the men got 3.
As a prize, the women are treated to a steak barbecue prepared by past winners Rock and Dave while the men clean both kitchens.
Chef Ramsay asks Briana about the entrees they are serving. The women will serve scallops and Roshni was thrown out because of that. Meanwhile, the mean will serve raw meat.
It’s the season premiere but no reason for Chef Ramsay not to be pissed off. The scallops are a mess. Royce’s spaghetti is crunchy and the men’s appetizer isn’t ready. As a result, he sends the mean back to the dorm. He also stopped the women from preparing their Wellingtons.
Losing team – Men. They have to choose which two chefs will be eliminated.
Patrick nominates Don and Tavon but Chef Ramsay picks Tavon and Royce.
Royce was asked to get back in line while Tavon is eliminated.
