Fox and Gordon Ramsay team for reality series 'Master Chef'

Hk6_gr_0150.r Fox has ordered up "Master Chef," a new reality show that will pit amateur cooks against one another in a battle for culinary supremacy.

Gordon Ramsay, star of the network's other food-centric hours, "Hell's Kitchen" and "Kitchen Nightmares," will co-produce and headline "Master Chef," which is based on a format that originated in the U.K. but more recently shattered ratings records in Australia.

In the Australian version of the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter, contestants -- home cooks, not professional chefs -- audition by creating a dish for a panel of three judges to earn spots as semifinalists. The remaining contestants compete each week by way of team-based and individual cooking challenges until only one remains.

A premiere date has not yet been set. Reveille and Ramsay's One Potato Two Potato will produce.

I am a huge fan of both "Hell's Kitchen", and "Master Chef", but tonight as I watched the Master Chef's compete to be in the final four, something was amiss. It was as if Whitney had an unfair advantage over Sharone with two dessert competitions taking place. One for advantage in the "fish cooking" challenge (which seemed fair) and the other leaving the other contestant going home. My husband and I felt that everyone was well aware that desserts are Whitney's specialties yet this was an illimination competition clearly giving Whitney an unfair advantage over Sharone seeming to be a set up. I am sure other fans have to feel the same way. Sharone is the best chef on the show, yet terminated by a competition that was clearly favoring his opponent. I am extremely disappointed and hope this comment can even be justified, otherwise my fan status will terminate as well.
