As a result, the Hell’s Kitchen show will have a special land in the metaverse where players can take the challenge of becoming the head chef by cooking delicious recipes.
Hell’s Kitchen is a popular American cooking competition reality show hosted by Ramsay. The partnership with Hell’s Kitchen aims to create a kitchen-themed experience in The Sandbox metaverse that has never happened before.
About the partnership: Hell’s Kitchen x The Sandbox
Chef Gordon Ramsay stepped into the world of blockchain through the launch of the NFT-focused cooking reality show Hell’s Kitchen on The Sandbox. Ramsay made this announcement on Twitter, featuring a video containing a digital version of himself and a virtual version of Hell’s Kitchen in the metaverse.
Hell’s Kitchen is a TV reality show in which two teams of chefs compete for the job of head chef at a restaurant. The show is hosted by Chef Gordon Ramsay, who was also seen on MasterChef Australia. He is known for his dramatized anger towards the contestants.
The distributor of Hell’s Kitchen, ITV Studios has got its parcel of land in The Sandbox metaverse. The cooking-themed game will allow players to virtually create dishes, collect recipes, win competitions and join the race to become the next head chef. Players can buy limited-edition Gordon Ramsay avatars and other digital assets on the metaverse. They can also add their own experiences to the Hell’s Kitchen-themed assets.
“There’s nothing more exciting to me than chartering new territory, whether that’s creating a signature dish, a new restaurant concept, a new show, or now a virtual experience in The Sandbox. I’ve been fascinated by The Sandbox and its offering in the metaverse. I couldn’t think of a better platform to bring the high energy of my Hell’s Kitchen restaurant and brand.”
