    Let's get it started hot, let's get it started in here! This is the Hell's Kitchen 16 Pool, a grand chance to win such fabulous prizes as a winner's avatar, and bragging rights! Anyone can participate, if you're reading this message, then yes you can too! All you have to do is pick a team of the five chefs whom you think will perform the best in Hell's Kitchen.

    Chef 2:
    Chef 3:
    Reserve Chef:
    (This one will join your team after you lose your first team member)



    Below are the contestants you have to choose from. I apologize for the lack of ordering, I could only find one source that listed all their info in text form.

    The deadline to enter is Friday September 30, 7:59 PM EST. This will give you the opportunity to watch Episode 1 and study the contestants before committing. Here's the scoring template to show how the chefs will score:



    A couple explanations of terms:

    Wins Challenge for Team: Any challenge where one individual dish is recognized at the best overall. This does not include simply scoring the highest # of points in a point-based challenge.
    Non-Kitchen Assignment in Dinner Service: A task that doesn't place them in the kitchen, such as tableside service, waiting tables, or assistant maitre'd. I've put this as negative because they're sometimes used as a punishment, and seen as the least-important role. From a meta perspective, it's also impossible to get eliminated no matter how badly you screw it up.
    Chooses Nominees: When one chef on the losing team gets to decide who goes home. This does not include simply getting called on to announce the decision when in the lineup.
    Gets to Keep Jacket: When a contestant leaves, but gets to keep their jacket.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. Good luck, and may your time in Hell's Kitchen be heavenly.

    Re: Hell's Kitchen 16 Pool

    I can't decide! I jotted 9 people that I like down during the first episode for my pool team. Need to choose 4 to kick to the curb! The photos on the FOX website helped me identify them since I didn't catch all their names - one was just "girl with glasses" LOL.
