In fact, all three judges – Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot – will taste prepared dishes by amateur chefs at an open casting call for the next season of MasterChef right here in Orlando.
If you think you've got the culinary chops to compete in the grueling kitchen showdown, make your way to the Holiday Inn & Suites (5905 S. Kirkman Road) on Saturday, Oct. 12, and be sure to bring a dish you've cooked because the judges will taste and, of course, judge your food on location.
The casting call will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. that Saturday, and we'll give you fair warning: You'll have a few minutes to plate your dish, but you will NOT have a kitchen or the chance to re-heat your dish. You'll also want to bring your own plates and utensils.
Those interested in auditioning for the show need to pre-register and fill out some other paperwork, which you can find on the MasterChef casting website.
Just do yourself a favor and cook up something delicious. Otherwise, you'll face the wrath of the Satan chef himself. And we'd rather you make it to the actual show so we can share in your misery. Remember, we're laughing with you, not at you. Good luck!
