The season four finalists competing for a cookbook deal, $250,000, and the title of Masterchef have been revealed. Masterchef judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot put this season’s aspiring chefs through a ‘lamb challenge’ in order to narrow the field of competitors who would be advancing to compete in individual challenges this season, with a stay-at-home mom, a former NFL player, and a boxing coach among the cooks chosen by the judges to continue on in the competition.
According to Fox, this season’s finalists will cook for American heroes as well as surfers and the cast of Glee. They’ll also travel to Vegas later this season for one challenge while another episode will find those left standing putting together a summer party menu for charity volunteers.
