Michigan Man Will Be on This Season of “Hell’s Kitchen” [Video]
A Michigan man will have to face the wrath of Gordon Ramsay on this upcoming season of Hell's Kitchen.
24-year-old Aaron Smock, of Frankenmuth, will be appearing on season 16 of the competition cooking show, which airs this Friday. He and 17 other chefs will be competing for $250,000 and a chance to become the next head chef at Ramsay's restaurant, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, in Las Vegas.
MLive says Smock worked at Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's, both in Frankenmuth, and both DELICIOUS restaurants! According to Smock's bio page, his signature dish is a pork schnitzel and blaukraut (German red cabbage)
From the looks of the trailer this season is going to be an intense one as Ramsay will put the chefs through difficult challenges. The description for the first episode on the website says:
Ramsay shocks the 18 chefs with a detour to a U.S. Army training boot camp, before allowing them to enter HELL’S KITCHEN. After proving their commitment and desire to face the tests that lay ahead, they are then split into two teams – men (blue) vs. women (red) – and tasked with their first challenge: to present their signature dishes."
Season 16 of Hell's Kitchen premieres Friday, September 23rd at 8 p.m. on FOX.

Spoiler: Ramsay says the punishments are "10x worse than we've ever punished them before." Yikes.
