When will Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ start cooking again? You might not be served anytime soon!

Are you hungry to witness a rage-filled chef throw platters of undercooked filet mignons and raw scallops against the wall to express his anger at cowering inept cooks? Yeah, me too. With September just around the corner, it got me thinking about when the premiere of the 19th season of Fox’s “Hell’s Kitchen” might commence.

Last year, the 18th season kicked off on Sept. 28 and ended on Feb. 8 this year. The theme was “Rookies vs. Veterans,” and the winner was Ariel Fox, who found redemption after coming in third place on Season 6. Fox turned down the job of being executive chef of Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen restaurant at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Instead, she went back to her job as concept executive chef for Dos Caminos, which has five restaurants in and around Manhattan.

There's nothing sweeter than holding the title of ABC's first-ever DWTS champion! Since winning the mirrorball, Monaco continued to portray the role of Samantha McCall on the network's daytime drama, General Hospital.

The 98 Degrees singer had so much fun learning how to dance on the show, that he joined the pros and troupe dancers on their DWTS tour after winning the title. At the time, he had no idea that his brother, Nick Lachey, would later compete on season 25 of the show with Peta Murgatroyd.
