After a few seasons of mixing things up on the judges panel, things seemed to have settled down for the 11th season of the MasterChef TV show on FOX. Does this TV series have all the necessary ingredients in the right amount to satisfy the home audience. Will MasterChef be cancelled or renewed for season 12? Stay tuned.
A FOX cooking competition series, MasterChef features talented home cooks battling for the title and the grand prize of $250,000.00. Chef Aarón Sánchez, Joe Bastianich and host-chef Gordon Ramsay have all returned to the season 10 judging panel. In addition to the usual elimination and tag team challenges, this time out the competing cooks are catering a former MasterChef winner’s wedding reception. For the restaurant takeover they are traveling to England to take over Ramsay’s flagship London restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.
