Next Level Chef season 2 premieres Sunday, Feb. 12 after the Super Bowl. The FOX competition series will see Gordon Ramsay, Nyesha Arrington, and Richard Blais mentoring 18 chefs vying for the 250,000 dollar grand prize and a one year mentorship with all three world renowned experts in the culinary field.

Competition will be stiff as the chefs face off on the iconic stage that’s three stories high and contains a different kitchen on each floor. They’ll be showcasing their work in the best and worst of circumstances, proving their grit and their artistry with each level they reach.

In this series, it’s not just professional chefs going head-to-head, so are home cooks and social media chefs because you don’t just find the next food superstar in the likeliest of places. You find that person in the environment where they thrive and you put them to the test to see if they can overcome the odds when they’re pushed out of their comfort zone.
