In an encore screening of Monday night’s episode, award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot return for season three of the culinary smash hit MasterChef USA. Nearly 30,000 hopefuls auditioned at MasterChef’s open casting calls. This new season will feature contestants from all walks of life representing 23 states – including a stock broker, a professional opera singer, an emergency physician, a food photographer, a plastic surgeon, as well as the first blind cook to enter the competition – all with the hopes of turning their culinary dream into a reality.
The hopefuls will prepare their signature dish and present them to the distinguished MasterChef judging panel. The judges will taste for flavor, originality, creativity and presentation. But most importantly, the amateur cooks must demonstrate a genuine passion for food and a drive to win in order to earn a coveted white apron and move on to the next round. Only those who put their best dish forward will move one step closer to becoming a culinary master.
