Excitement is building for the new Hell’s Kitchen season and there are many reasons why.

After a long hiatus, the new Hell’s Kitchen season 19 is ready to be revealed. Although Gordon Ramsay has been filling social media with his cooking demos and fiery commentary, many people have longed to see him standing at the pass between the red and blue kitchens. The wait is almost over.

On January 7, the first episode Hell’s Kitchen Season 19 will air. Filmed pre-COVID, many people have been counting the days to airing. While many people do not need special reasons to watch, this new Hell’s Kitchen season has a lot of them.

Here are five reasons why the new Hell’s Kitchen Season 19 is must watch food television.

Las Vegas

For the first time ever, Hell’s Kitchen was filmed in Las Vegas. Although the culinary competition is filmed on a set, Las Vegas is big change for the program. It offers the show and the chefs some amazing opportunities. From the special rewards to the excitement that Las Vegas offers, this new season will be the most invigorating yet.

In addition, the episode themes can borrow from the locale. From a little magical spell to a roll of the dice on the craps table, expect to see a lot of Las Vegas throughout the season.

A kinder, gentler Gordon

Based on a few preview videos, there might be a kinder, gentler Gordon. Sure, there will be some plates flying and maybe a kitchen shut down, but Gordon really wants these chefs to succeed. He wouldn’t be so hard on the chefs if he didn’t care.

Sometimes people forget that this competition is a job audition. The prize is a job at his Lake Tahoe Hell’s Kitchen restaurant. If those chefs are successful, so is Gordon and his restaurant.

More special guests

Since the new season was filmed in Las Vegas, fans will see more special guests at the Chef’s Table. Whether it is athletes or well-known personalities, the Chefs table will have some familiar faces.

In addition, fans should expect to see some celebrity chefs in Hell’s Kitchen. One of the staples of recent seasons has been celebrity chefs appearing in the special episode challenges.

Favorite dishes return

For Hell’s Kitchen fans, there are certain dishes that are a staple. Whether it is a Beef Wellington or that truffle risotto, everyone can hear the infamous lines shouted from the kitchen. Those favorites will be back on the menu. Although the chefs should have mastered the classics, the viewers might pick up a few tricks along the way.

A longing for a return to restaurants

After a long year, many people are ready and waiting to return to their favorite restaurants. Seeing these talented chefs prepare amazing dishes and watching diners sit around tables enjoying a meal together, the desire to return to restaurants grows.

Hopefully, people will watch Hell’s Kitchen and be inspired to support that local restaurant or favorite chef. Whether it is placing an order or participating in a cooking class, food brings people together. Even if you cannot sit at a table in Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars, bring some of that heated food passion to a table closer to home.
