Running the pass and the ultimate decider on each contestant’s fate in Hell’s Kitchen is host Marco

These celebrity hopefuls will face skill based and location challenges culminating in the immense
pressure of delivering a complete dinner service at the exclusive Hell’s Kitchen restaurant for over 70
diners. It promises to be a thrilling and fiery ride as they face the toughest challenge within the hottest
and toughest kitchen in the world.
HELL’S KITCHEN AUSTRALIA is produced by ITV Studios Australia and is coming soon to
Former Bachelorette Sam Frost, who also appears on Hell's Kitchen revealed details about the tension between two.
"David and Pettifleur are at each other's throats all the time, she told News Corp Australia. "He's got a comeback for everything, he always has to have the last say. I said to him the other day, 'Oh man, imagine what it would be like to be one of your kids."
Candice Warner has also taken a swipe at Oldfield, saying:
"There's a few people on this show who are in it for the wrong reason and it’s very, very obvious. People who are there for fame and who want to ram their intelligence and opinion down people's throats by trying to belittle them."
Oldfield fired back by saying: "Well, to Candice I would say: 'My Wikipedia entry reads a lot nicer than hers does.'"
The One Nation founder has been fairly dismissive of his fellow cast-members in general, saying:
"They're not the sort of people that I expect I would see socially after the program is filmed. That's nothing against them but they have a different circle that they run in to the circle I usually run in."
Hell's Kitchen Australia is set to premiere later this year on Channel 7.
