Genre: Reality, Cooking
Premise: The seventh season of ``MasterChef'' sees another change in the judging panel, with chefs Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi joined by a different special culinary guest judge -- including Wolfgang Puck, Aarón Sánchez, Edward Lee, Kevin Sbraga and Richard Blais -- each episode. The experts evaluate the skills of amateur cooks from across the country who are faced with mystery-box challenges that require them to work with the same ingredients; team challenges (including restaurant takeovers); and the dreaded pressure tests that determine who is eliminated from the competition. In the end, only one cook wins the title, the trophy -- and a lucrative prize.
The losing contestants from the Sweet 16 Challenge create a three-layer birthday cake; after an elimination, the remaining cooks must prepare and serve dishes to 100 farmers; the top 10 cooks create a Nutella breakfast dish; guest judge Edward Lee.
