Hell Freezes Over 18x04
The chefs are surprised with winter jackets and then must compete in a sled race for an advantage in the upcoming challenge, during which the two teams must prepare their best winter soups. The winning team is rewarded with a luxurious day and night in Palm Springs. After a troublesome dinner service, Chef Ramsay makes an extreme change in the teams.
Hell's Riders 18x03
The chefs are tasked with serving lunch to a room full of Marines and prepare dishes that represent the air (chicken parmesan), the land (NY Strip) and the sea (fish and chips). The first team to serve all of the Marines on their side of the dining room wins the challenge and is awarded a day at Paramount Ranch, where they will have the opportunity to star in their own western film. Later, the most dramatic dinner service ever ends with a shocking contestant walk-out.
A Fond Farewell 18x02
When Chef Ramsay announces that he is taking his risotto off of the Hell's Kitchen menu, the contestants are tasked with preparing their own risotto dish in the hopes of replacing the old one for the remainder of the season. Then, in preparation for the first dinner service of the competition, Chef Christina calls both teams down to the kitchen to demonstrate how to make the night's menu. While the veterans are prompt and attentive, the rookies drag their feet, making it clear that they still have a lot to learn. Find out which chefs survive another day.
Rookies vs. Veterans 18x01
For the first time ever on HELL'S KITCHEN, Chef Gordon Ramsay invites eight previous contestants back to the kitchen to battle against eight ambitious rookies for a chance at a life-changing grand prize: an Executive Chef position at the world's first Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen Restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. In the first challenge of the season, the rookie chefs will cook up the best versions of their signature dishes within 45 minutes, while the veterans will attempt to create the same dishes, foregoing the making of their own signatures in the process. The winning team will be rewarded with a first-class meal at restaurant Charcoal and will be joined by Chef Ramsay, while the losers must prep the kitchen for dinner service the next day.
All-Star Finale 17x16
Final Three 17x15
Chef Ramsay informs the remaining three All-Stars that all of them will compete in the finale. As a reward, Ramsay invites the contestants to a pampered retreat at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. However, what the contestants think is a relaxing vacation is soon turned upside-down when Ramsay reveals this will be their last challenge before the finale. The three finalists must cook and perfect their menus and only two will advance. Then, the final two All-Stars pick from the season's past contestants to join them on their team for the final dinner service. With a head chef position at the first ever Hell's Kitchen flagship restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and a salary of a quarter of a million dollars on the line it all comes down to this. Find out who is named the winner.
Families Come to Hell 17x14
When the families come to visit, the four remaining All-Stars are feeling extra-motivated to succeed. For this week's challenge, the chefs must choose a gift, each of which contains a secret ingredient on which they must base their dish. They will then anonymously serve their dishes to each family, and whoever gets the most votes, wins a day in Malibu with Chef Ramsay and his/her family. Then, actresses Gabrielle Dennis ("The Game") and Anna Konkle (NEW GIRL) join dinner service, during which each contestant will have the opportunity to run the kitchen, but will be tested, as certain dishes will have the wrong ingredient. Find out who makes it to the final three.
Stars Heating Up Hell 17x13
The remaining All-Stars must instruct athletes Candice Park (WNBA), Jordan Wieber (2012 Olympic Gold Medalist), Ricky Williams (Heisman Trophy Winner, Univ. Of Texas), Shawne Merriman (NFL football linebacker) and Reggie Miller (NBA Hall of Famer) to cook their signature dishes – using only verbal instructions. Later, for the first time ever, the all-star contestants will be cooking in one kitchen during dinner service, with special guests rapper and musician Wyclef Jean and actor Mathew Moy ("2 Broke Girls"). Find out who makes it to the final four.
Five is the New Black 17x12
Chef Ramsay reveals to the remaining All-Stars that they will be competing for the coveted black jacket by facing a series of three difficult challenges: "Taste It, Now Make It," in which contestants must use their senses to recreate a dish; "Five Domes," in which contestants have 30 minutes to create a cohesive restaurant quality dish using mystery ingredients hidden under domes; and "Free For All," in which the All-Stars must make a dish of their choice using ingredients picked out by Ramsay.
Trying to Pasta Test 17x11
This week, the All-Stars get a late night call from Chef Gordon Ramsay with instructions on their next challenge.

Gordon invites special guest judges, Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson (James Beard Award Winner) and Bruce Kalman (Chef/Owner of Union Restaurant). Find out whose head will be on the chopping block.
It's All Gravy 17x10
The remaining all-stars head to the dining room to be greeted by Gordon and a camel, before diving into the infamous Blind Taste Test Challenge – during which they must decipher spices with the risk of being blasted by mashed potatoes and gravy. Later, during a special dinner service, the restaurant hosts a private charity event for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Shane's Inspiration. Each team must prepare a five-course meal for the guests, including actress Mindy Sterling ("Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery") and actor David Koechner ("The Office," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby").
