Donkeys!!! That’s right folks. Summer is here and that means the cranky but truly gifted culinary master Gordon Ramsay is back in the kitchen with a new crop of professional food people as Hell’s Kitchen is set to make its sixth season premiere this July.

The series follows two teams of contestants, whose backgrounds are all food/cooking related. These chefs, cooks, caterers and other cooking professionals are split into two teams and made to show off their abilities in the kitchen while Ramsay observes them. Each week someone is eliminated until the grand finale when the final two face off in the hopes of winning a prestigious cooking gig at one of Ramsay’s restaurants. The real entertainment comes from watching Ramsay scream at the cooks as they bustle about the kitchen, trying not to screw anything up. Seriously, if I had a dollar for every time someone was yelled at by Ramsay for overcooking the risotto… I might be able to afford an appetizer at one of Ramsay’s restaurants.

Hell’s Kitchen Season Six premieres with a two-hour season premiere Tuesday, July 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX and makes its time period premiere the following week Tuesday, July 28 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
