The 13th season of Fox's Hell's Kitchen launches at 8 p.m. Sept. 10.

This time, four women from Philadelphia and its environs will be among the cast of 18 competing for big money and glory as they submit to the tender ministrations of Gordon Ramsay.

Fox is a bit skimpy on bios, but I've managed to flesh 'em out a bit.

Sade Dancy, 25, is a line cook at The Treemont in Center City. Signature dish on the show: Pea and Mushroom Risotto with Goat Cheese. See a video clip here.

Denine Giordano, 23, of Philadelphia, attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia; her Facebook bio identifies her as a line cook with OTG Experience, which operates cafes in airports including PHL. Signature dish: Chicken Parmesan. Video clip here.

Jennifer Salhoff, 33, of Philadelphia, is listed as a private chef, though she is, in fact, executive chef at Cuba Libre after stints at Restaurant Cerise and the late Meme. Signature dish: Pan Roasted Striped Bass Succotash of Crab with Wild Mushrooms, Bacon, Fava Beans and Corn in a Spicy Charred Corn and Tomato Saffron Broth. Video clip here.

Ashley Sherman, 29, originally from Bethlehem, lists Starr Restaurant Organization and Aramark on Facebook as previous employers. Signature dish: Chipotle Chicken and Chorizo Deconstructed “Taco." Video clip here.
