Look for the two-part season finale on Tuesday, September 4 and Monday, September 10.

[via press release from FOX]

CHRISTINE HA, JOSH MARKS AND BECKY REAMS NAMED TOP THREE SEMIFINALISTS ON "MASTERCHEF"

Frank Mirando Eliminated from Competition

Two-Night Season Finale Airs Tuesday, September 4 and Monday, September 10, on FOX

Season Four Open Casting Calls to be Held in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Minneapolis, Miami, Cleveland, Portland, San Diego and Nashville

Tonight, judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot announced the Top Three semifinalists on MASTERCHEF: Christine Ha, a blind graduate student from Houston, TX; Josh Marks, a U.S. Army Contract Specialist from Jackson, MS; and Becky Reams, a food photographer from Stilwell, KS. Frank Mirando, a stockbroker from Holbrook, NY, was eliminated after an intense pressure test featuring three types of soufflé.

The two-part season finale starts next Tuesday, Sept. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) with Christine, Josh and Becky battling it out in the semifinals. During the penultimate episode, the judges challenge the three semifinalists to reflect on their culinary journeys to create outstanding dishes that best embody their personalities and passion for food. In the elimination challenge, each contestant will prepare a dish featuring a pair of legs - chicken, lamb, or frog - that is worthy of a spot in the Top Two, but one hopeful's MASTERCHEF journey will come to an end.

In the concluding episode of the nail-biting season finale airing Monday, Sept. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the remaining two cooks will compete one last time in the kitchen, and the judges will reveal America's next MASTERCHEF who will walk away with a book deal and the $250,000 grand prize.

MASTERCHEF will once again travel across the country and give talented home cooks the chance to prove they have what it takes to make their mark on the culinary world. Open casting calls for Season Four of MASTERCHEF will take place this fall in New York, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Chicago, IL; Boston, MA; Dallas, TX; Minneapolis, MN; Miami, FL; Cleveland, OH, Portland, OR; San Diego, CA; and Nashville, TN. Additional details including dates, venues and times will be announced soon. Visit www.masterchefcasting.com for the most up-to-date audition information.
