“Obviously, Gordon is a good friend and, given the recent launch of Studio Ramsay Global, an important part of FOX’s programming and growth strategy,” said Rob Wade, President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials, FOX Entertainment.  “MASTERCHEF,” Gordon, Aarón and Joe, and our fantastic partners at ESNA, have been vital to FOX’s DNA.  Even in its eleventh season, this show continues to impress by sustaining FOX’s success on Wednesdays this Summer.  We anticipate this momentum to continue next year when “MASTERCHEF” returns for a much deserved Season 12.”

“MASTERCHEF” currently averages 5.0 million multi-platform viewers.  Its telecasts this season, together with “CRIME SCENE KITCHEN,” have led FOX to rank as the #1 broadcast network on six of this summer’s eight Wednesdays that the pair aired together.

On the next all-new episode of “MASTERCHEF: LEGENDS,” Chef Ramsay challenges the home cooks to create a dish for the most important legend yet – their own personal legends. Their personal legends could be someone they look up to, a personal hero, or even a family member who inspires them. Throughout this season, legendary chefs continue to join as a guest judges, alongside Ramsay, Sánchez and Bastianich. Upcoming legends include Dominique Crenn, Niki Nakayama and more. As the competition advances toward the finale, only one home cook will ultimately claim the MASTERCHEF title, the $250,000 grand prize, a complete VIKING kitchen and kitchen tools and bakeware products from OXO.  

“MASTERCHEF” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam. Elisabeth Murdoch, Natalka Znak, Danny Schrader, Gordon Ramsay, Pat Llewellyn, Ben Adler, Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Shyam Balsé serve as executive producers. Join the conversation on FacebookTwitter and Instagram or by using #MasterChef.

Bravo’s two-time Emmy®-nominated series “Below Deck” returns for season nine on Monday, October 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and streams next day on Peacock. Set on the stunning waters of St. Kitts in the Caribbean, superyacht My Seanna welcomes back veterans Eddie Lucas, in his new role as first officer, alongside chef Rachel Hargrove who is ready to redeem herself after a memorable last charter season. A fresh crop of yachties include new chief stewardess Heather Chase, stews Jessica Albert and Fraser Olender and deckhands Jake Foulger, Rayna Lindsay and Wes O’Dell. When an unexpected delay leaves Captain Lee stranded on land, Captain Sean Meagher steps in to oversee the ship with a “hands-on” management style catching the crew off guard and yearning for the “Stud of the Sea’s” swift return.    

Fresh off his promotion, Eddie’s new role as first officer gets derailed when he quickly realizes he might have to pull double duty on deck if he wants his team to succeed. Chief stew Heather is eager to deliver her guests an unforgettable experience, but when one of her stews becomes severely unmotivated, she must hustle to pick up the slack and maintain her five-star service. In order to move forward, chef Rachel must tend to some unsavory leftover beef with Eddie from last season. As department “boat-mances” blossom, alliances form and bonds are broken, this crew proves the Caribbean seas are as choppy as they are clear.
