By | November 11, 2011

Tryout for MasterChef 2012!

Open Calls are scheduled for the Gordon Ramsay cooking competition this fall. Masterchef is the FOX Network show that puts non-professional cooks through the wringer to see if they will come out a Master Chef at the end.

  • Are you a home cook with passion?
  • A self proclaimed ‘Foodie’
  • Can you make just about any dish taste fantastic?
  • Is cooking one of your fave hobbies?
  • Would you LOVE to win $250,000? and who wouldn’t

If so, come tryout for the 2012 season of MasterChef!

The series will be running a nationwide search for 18 contestants that will move onto the MasterChef show and MasterChef Kitchen to join the show. They will be holding open casting calls from D.C. to San Francisco and many places in between.

Famed chef Gordon Ramsay is back for Round three!

The FOX culinary smash hit, MASTERCHEF will feature Gordon Ramsay and returning judges Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot. The three judges put the reality TV cooking contestants through a series of exciting elimination rounds. At the end of the season, the one amateur cook left standing should be a culinary master and MasterChef!

BTW, did I mention the show’s winner will win $250,000.00!!

So far the above are the only open calls announced – however, there is also a Food Truck version of this casting – where it seems you go to a casting call for MasterChef at a Food Truck that goes to other cities and parks – Contestants then bring their dishes up to the truck.

The Food Truck MasterChef casting dates and times have not yet been announced, but some of the the cities have. So far we know the food truck will be in Arizona, Utah and Colorado – dates and times will be announced soon.

So if the above MC tryouts aren’t in your area, maybe the Food Truck will be.
