Wolfgang Puck is the guest judge and introduces the Top 20 contestants to their first Mystery Box Challenge, which involves creating a potato dish in 60 minutes.
Later, the cooks have an hour to tackle one of Gordon Ramsay's signature recipes in the first elimination challenge.
This season, host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot welcomed judge Christina Tosi, owner and founder of New York City’s Milk Bar, and the 2015 James Beard Award winner for Outstanding Pastry Chef, to Season Six of MASTERCHEF. The three celebrated food experts have put the latest group of contestants through a series of challenging elimination rounds, in order to turn one home cook into a culinary master.
After a nationwide search, 40 of the best home cooks were flown to Los Angeles to present their signature dishes to the judges in a head-to-head challenge, with the goal of earning a coveted MASTERCHEF apron.
