Arthur Smith, chairman of A. Smith & Co. Productions and Hell’s Kitchen executive producer, talks to TV Real about season 19 of the hit culinary competition series starring Gordon Ramsay.
A new season of Hell’s Kitchen kicked off on FOX earlier this month, marking season 19 of the hit culinary competition series starring Gordon Ramsay.
In this season, Ramsay takes the show to Las Vegas, the city that’s home to the world’s first Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen restaurant at Caesars Palace. A life-changing grand prize is at stake, including a position as head chef at the all-new Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen Lake Tahoe at Harveys Hotel and Casino and the title of Hell’s Kitchen winner.
“This season of Hell’s Kitchen is unlike any other because, for the first time in the series’ history, we headed outside of Los Angeles to film in the culinary capital of the world, Las Vegas,” says executive producer Arthur Smith, chairman of A. Smith & Co. Productions. “When you combine the high energy of Hell’s Kitchen with everything that Vegas has to offer, it truly made for an incredible season.”
Sin City was chosen as the new setting for a multitude of reasons, Smith explains.
