Fans of “MasterChef” are ready for another season of amazing food, intense competitions and even a few tears. However, nobody will be prepared for Graham Elliot’s amazing weight loss. One of three judges on the competition, the man looks amazing after shedding serious weight since last season. According to Broadway World on Monday, chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot return for season five to find the best home cook.
So how much weight has Graham Elliot lost? As fans will notice it is more than 150 pounds and it makes him look significantly difference. According to the Huffington Post, since undergoing weight loss surgery in July 2013, Elliot has been keeping his fans updated on his progress. He keeps losing weight and offers up images on his Instagram account to share the difference in his size.
While the fans of Graham Elliot knew that he has changed his lifestyle, most of the fans of “MasterChef” weren't aware of his weight loss. Being that the show was taped earlier in the year, this is the first time the chef has been introduced to the fans of the show. And everyone couldn't be happier for the reality star as he looks good!
The show will feature 30 contestants coming from all walks of life. There is an advertising executive, an oilman, a stay-at-home-dad, an admissions counselor, a high school student and even a church music director. Each individual has the hopes of turning their culinary dreams into reality. However, before they even get to be considered for “MasterChef” they need to pass some grueling tests from the three tough judges. With each new challenge, the pressure will mount as the Top Finalists compete for the title of “MasterChef,” a cookbook deal and the $250,000 grand prize.
“MasterChef” season five kicks off Monday night at 8 p.m. on FOX.
