The King of The Hill Challenge is a recurring challenge that has the chefs compete with their own dishes. The person with the best dish would be placed in the winners chair, though he or she could be removed from the chair if the following person's dish was better. The person left of the chair at the end is named the winner. If used as a team challenge, the person on the chair wins it for their team.
Season 11 Edit
Season 11 was the first time the challenge was used, and when there were 7 chefs left (4 on the red team, 3 on the blue team). However, Ramsay made it an individual challenge. The chefs had 45 minutes to create a dish of their choice, with Ramsasy being the judge. Ja'Nel got the chair first and beat out Mary and Zack, but was dethroned by Jon with his dish. Jon would later beat out Susan, Zack, and Cyndi earning him the win. His reward was immunity for the next service.
Season 12 Edit
Season 12 had it when there were 10 chefs (5 on both teams) and used the team variant. The chefs had to gather 5 ingredients from a dark grocery store, and use it in their dish. Rochelle won it for the blue team after winning against her former teammates. The blue team's reward was a a day at Le Spa while the red team took in deliveries.
Season 14 Edit
Season 14 had it when there were 7 chefs (4 on the red team, 3 on the blue team), and used the team variant. This time, Ramsay had each chef cook a cut of steak. T was the first one up on the chair and beat out Milly and Josh, but Meghan dethroned her out and beat out Allison and Nick. However, Michelle was able to dethrone Meghan at the last minute and win it for the red team. The red team went to Catalina Island with a submarine ride, a three course dinner and received Vitamix blenders. The blue team had to break down 250 pounds of beef for next service.
