Here's an idea: Let's look at a few of the 15 masochists talented chefs chosen for the new season of Hell's Kitchen and make some wildly unfair - and presumably inaccurate - assumptions about them based on their occupations and hometowns. Are you with me?

Ben, 29, an electrician and former chef from Charlotte, N.C.
Prediction: An electrician? Mark my words: There's a reason why his profile contains the word "former."

Christina, 25, a culinary student from Niagara Falls, N.Y.
Prediction: All sizzle, no steak!

Dominic, 43, a stay-at-home dad from Catawba, S.C.
Prediction: Cheerios and apple juice are not haute cuisine.

Louross, 24, a hotel cook from Las Vegas, Nev.
Prediction: Sin City is the new culinary-talent incubator (see: Top Chef's Marcel and Hung). He'll win.

Vanessa, 31, a line cook from Bozeman, Mont.
Prediction: Good with game meats.

Hell's Kitchen premieres on April 1 on Fox. Visit TVGuide.com on April 2 to see how wrong I really was, reinforcing the lesson that when you assume, it just makes an "ass" out of "u" and "me." - Mickey O'Connor
