After 16 seasons, Hell's Kitchen finally brings fans its highly anticipated all-star edition. Old rivalries and new alliances are expected to form as Gordon Ramsay reunites with notable contestants who were banished from his kitchen.



Here are the 16 All-Stars who will compete for a chance to win a head chef position at Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas:

Meanwhile, FOX has also released the first trailer for season 17 in which Ramsay throws the All Stars back to the fire. As we get a glimpse of all the shouting and kitchen chaos, contestant Amanda basically sums up the season by saying, "Hell's Kitchen All Stars is definitely not for the faint of heart."


Who's your bet among the 16 All Stars?

Hell's Kitchen All Stars premieres Friday, September 26 on FOX.
