THE MILESTONE 10TH SEASON OF "MASTERCHEF" KICKS OFF WITH ANOTHER CROP OF TALENTED HOME COOKS

Home Cooks from Across the U.S. Battle for a White Apron on the Season Premiere, Airing Wednesday, May 29, on FOX

Celebrating its milestone 10th season, television's No. 1 cooking show, MASTERCHEF, will air two nights per week, kicking off Wednesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and joining the Thursday lineup on Thursday, June 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

This season, the judges - award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich - take the series to new heights, selecting just 20 incredible home cooks from a batch of top-notch culinary talent.

Tough competition, surprise guests and many challenges are in store, with one home cook ultimately claiming the title of MASTERCHEF, the $250,000 grand prize and, for the first time in MASTERCHEF history, an opportunity to learn hands-on in each of the judge's restaurants.

In the premiere episode, "The Epic 10th Season Auditions - Pt. 1," airing Wednesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, dozens of hopefuls enter the MASTERCHEF kitchen for the first time and have one chance to wow the judges and secure a a spot in the Season 10 field of competitors.
