In Hell's Kitchen, a team is a group of contestants forming a side, cooking in the same kitchen during services.

Team Division Edit

Every season starts with two teams, Blue Team and Red Team. Both teams are evenly divided by numbers. In Season 1, both teams were mixed between genders in the two teams. By Season 2,all teams would be divided by gender, male chefs in the blue team, and females in the red team.

Team Switches Edit

Sometimes, Ramsay will switch things up, and mix up team members into different teams. There are two ways on doing it, Leveling the numbers, or reassignment.

Leveling the numbers Edit

The most common way to mix up the teams. If a team is down two members or more, Ramsay would either ask the team with greater members to decide a volunteer to move into the other team, or Ramsay will choose himself based on performances.

The first time it happened was in Season 1 with 10 chefs left (6 on the blue team, and 4 on the red team). After losing two services in a row, along with two members, Ramsay decided that Michael Wray, the strongest of the blue team, will move to the red team to even the numbers 5-5. Michael would stay in the red team until the black jackets.

Season 2 did it with 8 chefs left (5 on the red team, and 3 on the blue team). Heather from the red team was singled out as the strongest of the red team, and was moved to blue team to even the teams out 4-4. Heather would stay in the blue team until the black jackets.

Season 4 did it with 8 chefs as well (5 on the red team, and 3 on the blue team). Jen from the red team volunteered herself to move to the blue team, evening the numbers 4-4. Jen would stay in the blue team until the black jackets.

Season 5 was the first season to do it more than once. The first switch happened immediately after Seth was eliminated, and the red team had 7 chefs compared to the blue teams 5. Lacey, who was nominated by the red team, was moved to the blue team to even the numbers 6-6. Lacey would stay in the blue team until she was eliminated midway in the eighth service. The second time ti happened was when the blue team had 6 chefs compared to the red teams 4. Giovanni was transferred to the red team to even the numbers 5-5. He would stay in the red team until the black jackets.

In Season 6, Robert, after a short stint on the red team, was placed back into the blue team to give them 6 chefs compared to the red teams 7. He stayed with them until he was eliminated after the seventh service.v

Season 7 did it with 10 chefs (6 on the blue team, 4 on the red team). After Scott's elimination, Ramsay moved Benjamin to the red team, as he was impressed with his leadership skills that service, evening the teams 5-5. Benjamin would stay in the red team until the black jackets.

Season 8 did it with 8 chefs (5 on the red team, 3 on the blue team). Trev, who was originally sent to the red team, was placed back into the blue team to even the teams 4-4. He would stay with the blue team until the black jackets.
