Master Chef is a U.S. competitive cooking reality show, open to amateur and home chefs. Produced by Shine America and One Potato Two Potato, it debuted on July 27, 2010 at 9 pm ET/PT on the Fox Television Network, following one of Ramsay's other series, Hell's Kitchen.

MasterChef is based on the British BBC series MasterChef. Chef, television personality and restaurateur Gordon Ramsay together with restaurateur and vineyard owner Joe Bastianich and chef Graham Elliot are the judges in the US version of MasterChef. The competition takes place in the MasterChef warehouse which includes a large area with several cooking stations which is overlooked by a balcony, a well-stocked pantry, and a fine-dining seating area used for certain challenges.

In the first 4 seasons, Amateur chefs were initially selected through nationwide auditions, selecting a total of one hundred competitors to the start of the televised competition. In the preliminary rounds, each of these had an opportunity to prepare a signature dish for the trio of judges. They were given a limited amount of time to prep their dish, and then given five minutes before the judges to complete the cooking and assembly of the dish, during which the judges ask about their background. The three judges taste the dish, and vote "yes" or "no" to keeping the chef in the competition; two "yes" votes are required for the chef to move on and receive a MasterChef apron, while those that fail to do so leave the competition. This process weans the field to about one-third of the original size.

The show has been first-run as a summer series, with the fourth season concluding in September 2013. On May 10, 2013, Fox renewed MasterChef for an additional two seasons, which will extend the show through at least a sixth season.

If you are a real estate agent, working construction, daycare worker, anchor person, lawyer, janitor or any other industry aside from a chef or line cook, then now is your time to make that switch and prove to America that you are the best cook out there.
