What Is MasterChef About?

Award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich put a new batch of talented home cooks through a series of challenges and elimination rounds. This season is more exciting than ever with a surprise-filled journey that takes the contestants on the trip of a lifetime. Ramsay and the judges will serve as mentors to these skilled home chefs as they compete to claim the title of MasterChef and the $250,000 grand prize on MasterChef’s milestone 10th season.

FOX has renewed its powerhouse cooking competition series, MASTERCHEF, for a twelfth season, featuring award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich.

“Obviously, Gordon is a good friend and, given the recent launch of Studio Ramsay Global, an important part of FOX’s programming and growth strategy,” said Rob Wade, President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials, FOX Entertainment. “MASTERCHEF, Gordon, Aarón and Joe, and our fantastic partners at ESNA, have been vital to FOX’s DNA. Even in its eleventh season, this show continues to impress by sustaining FOX’s success on Wednesdays this Summer. We anticipate this momentum to continue next year when MASTERCHEF returns for a much deserved Season 12.”

MASTERCHEF currently averages 5.0 million multi-platform viewers. Its telecasts this season, together with CRIME SCENE KITCHEN, have led FOX to rank as the #1 broadcast network on six of this Summer’s eight Wednesdays that the pair aired together.

On the next all-new episode of MASTERCHEF: LEGENDS, airing tonight Wednesday, Aug. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Chef Ramsay challenges the home cooks to create a dish for the most important legend yet – their own personal legends. Their personal legends could be someone they look up to, a personal hero, or even a family member who inspires them. Throughout this season, legendary chefs continue to join as a guest judges, alongside Ramsay, Sánchez and Bastianich. Upcoming legends include Dominique Crenn, Niki Nakayama and more. As the competition advances toward the finale, only one home cook will ultimately claim the MASTERCHEF title, the $250,000 grand prize, a complete VIKING kitchen and kitchen tools and bakeware products from OXO.
