* DarkAndTroubledPast: Plenty of contestants have mentioned that they have had very unpleasant life experiences and are using the competition as an opportunity to propel themselves into success. Notable examples include Garrett from Season 2 ([[spoiler: Former prisoner]]), Salvatore from Season 7 ([[spoiler: Skipped his education to work and make money for his family]]), Jessica and Joy from Season 12 ([[spoiler: formerly homeless]]), JR from Season 13 ([[spoiler: Formerly homeless]]), Milly from Season 14 ([[spoiler: Formerly homeless on multiple occasions]]), and Kristin from Season 15([[spoiler: Kicked out of two high schools and formerly under house arrest]]).

** This is the reaction Chef Ramsay gives to any chef who is stupid enough to use a canned/frozen/prepackaged ingredient in their opening signature dish. If they're not named Rock, they won't be around Hell's Kitchen for long.

** Physical injury or a fire in the kitchen that causes chaos are often teased. While it isn't uncommon for chefs to be injured, usually a check-in with the medic and a trip to the hospital has them back on their feet in time for service. Fires are likewise not uncommon, but are universally easily contained and tend to just panic the chefs for a moment before it is put out.

* NeverTrustATrailer: Like every other reality show before it, Hell's Kitchen follows up the end of an episode with a brief footage of next week's episode, which is just a bunch of short clips that will generate hype to get people pumped up for the next episode. Most of the time, the next episode isn't as dramatic as the trailer makes it seem to be. Many times the previews flat lie, clipping together footage with a voice-over that makes it seem like something huge and dramatic is going to happen, and something rarely does.
** Common teasers are that two chefs will get into a physical conflict, a romance begins, someone begins plotting to sabotage another chef, or someone will get seriously injured. A physical fight has ''never'' happened on the show (though they have come close at times), romance between contestants has almost never happened, ditto on (deliberate) sabotage, and serious injuries are very rare.

** Common teasers are A common teaser is that two chefs will get into a physical conflict, a romance begins, someone begins plotting to sabotage another chef, or someone will get seriously injured. A physical fight fight. This has ''never'' happened on the show (though they have happened; they've come close at times), a couple of times, but usually the confrontations are limited to shouting.
** Another common one is that two chefs will begin a
romance that will somehow jeopardize their standing, or that Ramsay would have to separate them or force them to choose between contestants a relationship and the competition. Romance between chefs happens very rarely and Ramsay has almost never happened, ditto on (deliberate) sabotage, and serious injuries are gotten involved when they do.
** The trailers ''very'' often hint that a chef will sabotage another chef or do something to get them into trouble. HanlonsRazor aside (since ''accidental'' sabotage is fairly common), it is very,
very rare. rare for a chef to sabotage another.

** In Season 11, the preview for the episode where Ja'Nel joined the blue team made it look like she was going to sabotage the blue team so only the girls would be around when the black jackets were given out in the next episode. Nothing like this ever happened in the actual episode, at all.



** Season 12 features possibly the worst instance of this in the history of the show. The preview for the penultimate episode showed a limousine with a police escort pulling up to Hell's Kitchen, the chefs being patted down by security, and narration that implies a '''very''' important guest will be arriving to dine that night. [[spoiler:It turned out to be the traditional visit from the families before service]]. Particularly blatant is that this show was obviously just put on to make the trailer that way.

*** Season 3: The elimination of Josh which marked the first time Chef Ramsay eliminated someone ''in the middle of service'' and Ramsay sending Julia off to culinary school, as well as the first time two contestants would be eliminated in the same episode. The first (and so far, the only) time that the final service featured teams with the chefs who were originally on those teams before being eliminated, as Bonnie picked all the returning women and Rock picked all the returning men.

Notably, Josh is the only black jacket chef to have been eliminated mid-service.



*** Season 6: The first time the signature dishes actually became a team challenge. The first time a previous winner of Hell's Kitchen became a Sous Chef (Heather from Season 2). Also the first time Ramsay kicked chefs out of the kitchen to sit out the rest of service in the dorms (as opposed to eliminating them upon doing so, but nowadays though, it's rare when that DOESN'T happen). On the first black jacket night, Chef Ramsay walked out of the ''restaurant in the middle of service'' for the first time, leaving the contestants to fend for themselves. It was also the first time the final 2 did not design their sides of the restaurant.

** In the season 5 finale, Lacey ended up on Paula's team when Danny picked Carol, not wanting to deal with Lacey again even though he had never worked with Carol yet knew she was subpar, but interestingly enough, Paula's FIRST pick, Andrea, made the most mistakes in the service, and [[spoiler: Danny won.]]

** Tavon from Season 10. Despite being an executive chef, he butchered the signature dish challenge, then indirectly sabotaged his team's dinner service by not slicing the scallops properly during prep.
* InformedFlaw: Elsie from Season 1, Bonnie from Season 3, and Christina from Season 4 all had little to no professional cooking experience entering the competition, and yet all of them were competent enough to [[spoiler: make it into the Final 4.]]
** Michelle from Season 14 was the most glaring example of this, especially after the show required all contestants to have at least some professional cooking experience on hand as a prerequisite for entering the competition. She was the youngest and least experienced, which lead to frequent episodes of belittling by her competitors. However, she rarely made mistakes and was the best chef of the season discounting Meaghan and T.

** The lack of cooperation among chefs in the same team combined with individual incompetence can sometimes cause a humiliation conga of its own for dinner services. It was the case for [[spoiler: Season 6 and Season 15's Red Teams, who managed to rack up 6 consecutive dinner service losses]]
