MASTERCHEF Season 2 Premiers June 6th!!

So why should you or I care?  Well, today FOX announced the contestants from around the country that got invited to Los Angeles and cook for Chef Gordon Ramsay, Restaurateur Joe Bastianich, and Chef Graham Elliot.  Out of over 20,000 that auditioned, I was one of the 100 hopeful amateur chefs!!  You can find the complete list on FOX Flash.

It might be a little difficult to tell, but that's me below!






Here is the press release from FOX:


“MASTERCHEF” GETS COOKING MONDAY, JUNE 6, ON FOX

NATIONWIDE SEARCH BRINGS 100 AMATEUR COOKS
TO LOS ANGELES TO VIE FOR COVETED TITLE

Top 18 Revealed Tuesday, June 14

Famed chef Gordon Ramsay is back for Round Two of his culinary smash hit and last summer’s highest-rated new series, MASTERCHEF, Monday, June 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. After conducting a nationwide search, 100 of the best amateur cooks in America, including a police officer, an oil rig engineer, an interior designer, a forklift operator, a professional poker player, a classical pianist and a tattoo shop owner, were flown to Los Angeles in the hopes of becoming the next MASTERCHEF and walking away with the life-changing grand prize.

In the premiere episode, the hopefuls will prepare their signature dishes and present them to the renowned MASTERCHEF judging panel: Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay; restaurateur and wine maker Joe Bastianich; and the youngest four-star chef in America, Graham Elliot. The judges are looking for presentation, flavor, originality and creativity, but most importantly – to have a chance – every contender must possess an immense passion for food. The amateur cooks will be put through the paces, and only the most deserving among them will win the coveted white apron and move on to the next round of the competition. One thing is certain in MASTERCHEF: Winning will be no piece of cake.

On Tuesday, June 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and Monday, June 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the judges will continue to winnow down the Top 100 and ultimately reveal the Top 38. The competition heats up as more hopefuls are eliminated until the Top 18 are announced on Tuesday, June 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

    My purple banana shorts love to drape moss all over the top of a 3 bean sundae. Last year, I had to call the plumber to get a hold on my short sided flange bit that I accidentally cooked into a beef and tuna rose bush. Then I realized I was only smoking the first half of the book in a shredded drape burner. That made me realize they were deadly serious about converting the basement into a putting green. Oh, then gloves came off and my skin was gone revealing nothing but yellowing bone. What, said mister Garflinkter...? Oh no, says I. That is only the first part of everything that equals a whole sum of other things come together into a place. Yay, I know you have potatoes in your shorts.

  6. Okay, first off let me say I love and respect Chef Ramsay and all his shows. I enjoy learning a lot from watching and listening to him. However, I am not a fan of the drama that takes place, but every "show" I guess needs it to keep the less intelligent entertained. Secondly and most importantly the reason why I am posting this comment is because I would like to make light of how arrogant and extremely unprofessional Max Kramer is. I bet my life and ever cent I saved and made from hard work (something he knows nothing about. Hard work is what makes a man or woman a real man or woman)in the hospitality industry that this spoiled rich kid will never win or become successful without his daddies money. It is truly sad how some individuals can be such pathetic jerks thinking they are entitled. He would never last in my kitchen. I look forward to the day he is eliminated. I know I am not the only one who thinks so including all of the contestants. aHahaha, he is such a joke.

  8. OH MY GOD, I can't believe Rachel and Brendon won! It was the best to see them running around like they were on The Amazing Big Brother Kitchen. I can't say that I can tell you how much I know about what I see and say and know and love and like duh dude. Really, who are you and why are you asking me these farking questions. Johnny Dangerously loves you, once... ONCE! Really. I have no idea that you are the french fry of all cheesburger shakes. You really let yourself go to hello.
