Contestant: Zach Womack | Season 11 | HELL’S KITCHEN

Zach feels that, in light of the fact that he didn’t go to culinary school, if he can make it in this competition, anyone can.

Season 17 of HELL’S KITCHEN will welcome the newest batch of determined chefs who will brave Chef Gordon Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he puts them through an intense culinary academy. Throughout the season, the competitors will face a series of Ramsay’s grueling challenges to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win a life-changing grand prize.

The chefs will leave the pleasantries at the door as the pressure to impress Chef Ramsay will reach a boiling point. Before Chef Ramsay determines which individual chefs are worthy of a black jacket, the contestants must prove their ability to work in teams. The rewards for winners of upcoming challenges will be lavish and memorable, while the punishments will be hellish.
