There’s no denying the popularity of television cooking shows. Even former First Lady Michelle Obama has her own. The undisputed king of the genre, though, is undoubtedly Gordon Ramsay.

Ramsay’s MasterChef and Hell’s Kitchen have been reality food TV staples for years. Now, Gordon is getting yet another new cooking competition show. Fox recently released a trailer for the Ramsay-led Next Level Chef. The new show will premiere on January 2nd. TV Insider reported all the details.

In the series, 15 aspiring chefs will battle in a three-story setting with an elaborate stage. Each floor contains a different kitchen. Some are high-end and high-tech, while others are grimy and underequipped. It’s a completely new concept that should offer some interesting results.

Each floor also comes with a unique set of ingredients. Some of them will be high-quality. Others will be generic or cheap ingredients. Ramsay’s goal is to test the competitors’ skills in a variety of different environments.

The grand prize winner of Next Level Chef will take home a cool $250,000. Ramsay will be joined by chefs Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais. Each host will then recruit a team of contestants and serve as their mentor.

The show is being produced by Studio Ramsay Global and Fox Alternative Entertainment. Ramsay has had a relationship with Fox for years. Other TV shows produced by or with Ramsay on Fox include Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, MasterChef Junio, Kitchen Nightmares, and Hotel Hell.
