Deadline reported on Friday that Graham Elliot is leaving the MasterChef franchise, which includes both MasterChef and MasterChef Junior.
Elliot spoke about his decision to leave MasterChef. He said:
“It has been an awesome experience to be part of the MasterChef family. I learned so much from the people I got to work with and it has been a true honor to share my love of cooking with the audiences who have allowed me into their homes over the last six years.”
FOX renewed MasterChef for a seventh season back in July. The series will return this summer without Elliot.
