Fox is searching for brave souls for the next season of Hell’s Kitchen at an open casting call 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday.
Kareem Anguin, executive chef at The Oceanaire Seafood Room, is going to see if he has what it takes to withstand Gordon Ramsay’s pressure cooker. A fan of the show since season 1, Anguin says he isn’t nervous at all.
“Bring it on,” says the Jamaican, 32. “They can scream, they can yell, I’m ready. My years of being a sous chef prepared me for anything they want to dish out.”
Anguin will cook producers his Caribbean favorites including a whole fried Key West yellowtail snapper.
The audition takes place at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel, Promenade Room, 4525 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Go to the www.theconlincompany.com or call 310-313-9100 for details. Ramsay won’t be there; he has bigger fish to fry. Namely more legal problems. RadarOnline reports the hothead is facing a class action lawsuit brought by former employees of his Fat Cow in L.A.. Ex staffers allege they were not properly compensated for overtime and were forced to work through meals.
