Hell’s Kitchen Is Casting In Philly Next Week

“Do you think you have what it takes to work side-by-side with world-renowned chef Gordon Ramsay? If so, we want you!”

That’s the headline on the casting announcement for the newest round of human sacrifices contestants for FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen. The team is coming to town on June 24 for an open audition at the Westin–which means that any ambulatory mental patient who can grip a knife in his palsied claw can just walk on in and demand his (or her) 15 minutes of fame. Yes, I suppose it helps if you have some professional cooking experience, but as anyone who has watched any of the past seasons knows, an absolute lack of any culinary knowledge whatsoever is not necessarily a deal breaker. Like, for example, if you’re overweight, untalented, a little dim, possessed of an explosive temper and weep openly at the merest hint of a British accent, you are a reality TV jackpot and the producers will find space for you in the kitchen.

God bless America.
