Three celebrated food experts put the latest group of contestants through a series of challenging elimination rounds and turn one home cook into a culinary master.
In the Season Eight premiere episode, 40 of America's best home cooks travel to Los Angeles to compete in the Masterchef Battle for a White Apron challenge, during which they will face off against each other to try to earn a place in the Top 20. Judging the battle rounds will be Gordon Ramsay, Christina Tosi, and new judge and award-winning chef Aarón Sánchez, who will taste for flavor, creativity and presentation. After each battle, the judges will decide whom they think deserves to make it to the next round and a chance to compete for the coveted title
The remaining nine chefs compete for a spot in the Top 20.
In their first mystery box challenge of the season, the Top 20 will have to take 12 of the most popular ingredients found on any American home cook's shopping list and make the judges a MASTERCHEF-worthy dish. Whoever wins the challenge will have a huge advantage moving forward in the competition.
The Top 19 take it to the sandy shore, where they will compete in their first team challenge of the season. The chefs will have to prepare and cook fresh fish for 101 lifeguards who will then vote on their favorite dish. The losing team will have to compete in a pressure test before the judges send one chef home.
The Top 18 face a mystery box challenge that includes cooking some of the finest shellfish in the world. The winner will receive a huge advantage moving forward, leaving the rest of the home cooks to compete in an elimination challenge, during which they must create a Gordon Ramsay classic. Then, it is up to the judges to decide who will leave the kitchen.
