Hell's Kitchen (or Hell's Kitchen Australia) is a short-lived Australian adaptation of the British reality cooking competition series of the same name which puts Australian chef celebrities through rigorous cooking challenges and dinner services at a restaurant in Sydney.

Premise[]

Ten Australian celebrities have to compete to win AU$50,000 for their chosen charity.

Critical Reception[]

Colin Vickery, television writer for the Herald Sun was critical of the show, describing Marco Pierre White as a "cartoon version of himself". Vickery also criticized the low-grade nature of the celebrities and the paltry prize on offer. Denise Eriksen, journalist for The New Daily said the show "was a shocker" and that "Seven's execs should have pulled the plug on the show because it doesn't have huge celebrities, it's not that funny and Marco Pierre White is no Gordon Ramsay". David Knox of TV Tonight gave the series a rating of 2 out of 5 stars, criticizing the show on its low-grade celebrities and that it "lacks the authenticity required of committing to a stripped primetime format in what is already an over-crowded genre".
