To get into the spirit of Wednesday’s mash-up episode — which no doubt came from Mr. Schue writing a single word on the white board and then circling it for effect — the judges of MasterChef (Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich) got decked out in their finest McKinley High getups and sidled up to Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester in this exclusive photo.
The essential letterman jacket, tracksuit and, of course, a Cheerios uniform look great on these judges, »

Being a veteran in business dominated by scandals and sex tapes deserves kudos on its own. To create more than 10 seasons of family-friendly, Emmy-nominated content? Truly surreal. Representing their genre's best, the six contenders here -- Dancing With the Stars' Tom Bergeron, 58; American Idol's (departed) Randy Jackson, 56; The Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan, 46; Project Runway's Heidi Klum, 40; Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi, 42; and Gordon Ramsay, 46, of Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and MasterChef -- dish freely about the strange and hilarious moments that keep them coming back for more.

Father’s Day is almost here, and the men of MasterChef are celebrating the occasion by recounting their favorite paternal memories — which include anecdotes about dirty diapers, La Boheme and 10-foot Bavarian sausages. But wait, there’s more!
In the following exclusive video, Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot up the cuteness quotient by donning matching outfits with their sons; young Jack Ramsay shows that he, too, can bring the sarcasm; and someone receives a crisp slap! (It’s all in the name of good fun.)
Press play below for the full Father’s Day extravaganza. MasterChef airs Wednesdays »

Joe Bastianich is a restaurateur, winemaker, author and one of the judges of MasterChef. He'll be blogging each week about the show's search for the best home cooks. Follow him on Twitter @Jbastianich or visit joebastianich.com.Down to the final 16, we felt the pressure mounting as our MasterChef home cooks faced their second team challenge and battled it out in Sin City. Although they produced some great plates, ill-conceived and poorly executed strategy was sadly a recurring theme of the evening. Between Bime's failings as a team leader, the entire red team's meltdown during the banquet challenge and Natasha's »

On a warm, sunny February day in front of City Hall in Pasadena, Calif., there's a lot of smoke and some fire, but the fire trucks and firefighters on hand aren't there to douse anything -- unless it's hunger pangs.
On Wednesday's (June 12) episode of Fox's "Masterchef," the amateur cooks vying for the prize are busy whipping up a steak dinner for 101 assembled firefighters. They're eating in a parking lot, but it's at a long table with a proper tablecloth, china, silver and decorations.
"At Sepulveda Boulevard [in Los Angeles], next to the Getty Center, literally 100 meters from my house, I was stranded on that freeway. Fires were spreading rapidly. That's when I saw these guys in proper, true action, just how responsive they »
Tonight's epic MasterChef takes the contestants through a maze of formidable kitchen face-offs, using a whole two hours of airtime to eliminate just one home cook. And in the end, even the eliminated cook is showered with praise for her spirit, endurance and potential -- so much so that Gordon Ramsay even offers to mentor her in the real world of the New York culinary scene. Given the evening's chaotic challenges, someone could easily fall into a lobster tailspin, but the cast rises to the occasion and poaches its way to success. »
As broadcasters ease into summer, Wednesday once again saw a whole lot of cooking on TV. On Gordon Ramsay’s two-hour MasterChef (2.2/7) on Fox, variety seemed to be the spice of the night. In the first hour, the 18 remaining contestants competed as teams cooking a well-balanced meal for 300 picky elementary school students and a cheesecake challenge that saw one hopeful sent home. Then for its second hour MasterChef took the 17 cooks back to the kitchen to work against host Ramsay himself from the ingredients of a mystery box. Of course Ramsay didn’t break a sweat as the cooks went into a frenzy and whipped together his meal in half the allocated time. In the end, it was all about cupcakes and one more cook was sent home. Last summer cycle, MasterChef was the only unscripted show to grow year over year. This season, while down in its debut, the »

Retaining last week's 2.2 rating among adults 18-49, Fox's MasterChef topped Wednesday night in the key demo. The series, which aired a two-hour episode between 8 and 10 p.m., also averaged 5.4 million viewers. The American Baking Competition (1.0 adults) was steady with last week's premiere on CBS, leading into a block of encores. The network averaged a 1.1 adults rating for the night and 5.3 million viewers. Photos: Summer TV Preview ABC saw lows for canceled comedies Family Tools (0.9 adults) and How to Live With Your Parents (1.3

Joe Bastianich is a restaurateur, winemaker, author and one of the judges of MasterChef. He'll be blogging each week about the show's search for the best home cooks. Follow him on Twitter @Jbastianich or visit his joebastianich.com.Faced with their first team challenge of preparing lunch for some very picky elementary school students, both MasterChef teams seemed to emerge relatively unscathed. Initially the red team's choice of chicken teriyaki had us judges on the fence, but in the end it was a very smart move. The kids might have told Gordon they'd never heard of this dish before, but the flavors proved familiar. »

As if a mystery box challenge wasn't difficult enough, the contestants on "MasterChef" faced an even tougher obstacle this week. Chef Gordon Ramsay temporarily entered the competition to show the other competitors how it's done.
He was, in fact, so confident that he could school all of them that he spent half of his allotted time lounging around before he even started working.
“Everyone starts pulling things out of their box, people are running to the pantry and Gordon ... goes for a stroll," said contestant Beth Kirby.
Judge Graham Elliott told the contestants, "Half of your time has evaporated. 30 minutes gone! And Chef Ramsay has yet to begin cooking.”
But even with only 30 minutes to work, Ramsay delivered a beautiful dish -- black cod with a sesame seed crush and caramelized cauliflower -- that all of the home cooks agreed was delicious. Thankfully, he wasn't in the running. He just »

The contestants on MasterChef are all untrained home cooks, so in this week's episode, they're going to get schooled! On tomorrow night's MasterChef, the top 18 cooks will face some of the most outspoken and pickiest judges yet: elementary-school kids. The challenge? Create a meal for over 300 children that is both delicious and healthy. Daunting task, no? We think James sums it up best when he says after learning about the challenge: "This is my nightmare. This is the day I die." Also, judge Graham Elliot really got into the spirit of the school theme by dressing up as a bus driver and carting the contestants to the scene of the cooking challenge. Bless his heart. Check out his cute driving hat »
Gordon Ramsay's cooking competition "MasterChef" remained on a steady simmer from last week's premiere, giving Fox a ratings win for the night, while ABC's canceled "Family Tools" and "How to Live With Your Parents" couldn't generate heat on Wednesday night. Meanwhile, CBS's "American Baking Competition" led the network to a low in Wednesday premieres, according to preliminary numbers. "MasterChef," which filled Fox's primetime menu on Wednesday, posted a 2.2 rating/7 share in the advertiser-preferred 18-49 demographic -- even with last week's premiere -- and had 5.4 million total viewers, enough to »

Fox led the broadcast networks on Wednesday night with a steady episode of MasterChef. The two-hour competition matched its premiere returns with a 2.2 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.4 million viewers. NBC hit a Wednesday high with Dateline (1.6 adults), up two tenths of a point from last week. At 9 p.m., the special Healing in the Heartland brought in a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 and 8.6 million viewers -- the night's largest audience. Adding an encore of Chicago Fire, the network averaged a 1.5 rating in the key

Fox's "Masterchef" whittled the contestants down to the top 19 finalists this week, and judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot didn't pull any punches during the eliminations -- some chefs got cut before they even finished cooking.
The A.V. Club noted that Joe moved through those contestants “like a shark,” while EW appreciated the judge's "blue steel" stares while he was crushing dreams.
Still, despite the herd being thinned, an early frontrunner emerged: Johnny B., a 28-year-old carpenter, made a splash with an unusual seafood dish -- lobster crackerjack -- featuring lobster, caramel, popcorn and coconut.
As Gordon put it, “That doesn’t read well on the menu [but] I’m forced to say it actually worked ... Absolutely delicious in a very weird, exciting way.”
"Masterchef" airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. Et on Fox.

Joe Bastianich is a restaurateur, winemaker, author and one of the judges of MasterChef. He'll be blogging each week about the show's search for the best home cooks. Follow him on Twitter @Jbastianich or visit his joebastianich.com.This week's episode of MasterChef proves you can't "fake it 'till you make it" on season 4. As a competition show, we've graduated beyond entry-level challenges of chopping onions and peeling apples - and this year's top 40 delivered. I wonder how many of our home cooks thought - even just for a second - we were going to make them slaughter that baby lamb. »

Another year, another season, another new batch of contestants competing for the title of MasterChef. I remember when I was in their very shoes this time last year. I, along with other top home cooks, had just received a white apron from judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot after the most nerve-wracking culinary experience of our lives. But soon, half of us would move on, and half would be going home. Our initial challenge last season was to make our best ground beef dish. I remember hearing the gigantic meat grinding machine emerge from behind and having no idea what was going on. I was bewildered to say the least. I can only imagine how...

I didn’t mean for this to happen, but after salivating (with a full stomach, gross) over contestant Jonny’s “Lobster Crackerjack” within the first few minutes, I found myself watching two full hours of MasterChef. The auditions are over and the finalists have been revealed. What else have you been missing? Spoiler ahead…
Complete Outrage At Eliminated Contestant The judges kept military man Howard, who sprinkled poached langoustine onto a Salad, over finely tuned reality TV character Sasha, the sassy black woman who mixed the expensive shellfish into cheesy grits. Joe Bastianich threw Howard’s salad into the trash! »

MasterChef contenders return this week with aprons in hand, ready to dazzle America with their latest culinary designs. The group's been cut down to size, and only the best home cooks are left to contend with this week's main ingredients: lamb and langoustine. The chefs impress this recapper, personally, even if a few of them leave Gordon Ramsay spitting seafood and grits into the nearest trash can. I guess that's why they pay Gordon the big bucks. He never fails to leave a lasting impression. »
