MasterChef Season 9 premiere live stream: Watch online


MasterChef Season 9 has a new twist for food fans. 24 home cooks will get a coveted apron but which judge will win the ultimate battle.

MasterChef Season 9 has a new twist. While 24 home cooks will get an apron to compete in this season, there is another competition this season. The three judges, Gordon Ramsey, Aaron Sanchez and Joe Bastianich will each have eight chefs under their tutelage. Throughout this MasterChef season, the three judges will mentor their own home cooks, but only won will win the title MasterChef.

To kick off Season 9, FOX will be airing a two part episode. The two hour premiere will introduce MasterChef fans to the new contestants. While a favorite won’t necessarily emerge in the first episode, it will be interesting to see these home cooks’ talent.

According to FOX, this season’s batch of contestants include a personal grocery shopper, a firefighter, a pilot, a model and even a bus driver. Still, a person’s occupation doesn’t necessarily gauge their cooking ability. For example, a firefighter might have to cook for the whole fire house and could have more cooking skills than an entry level line cook.

While watching these aspiring chefs hone their craft is entertaining, I prefer to watch the chefs do their demos. Although people can spend hours watching Gordon Ramsay cook eggs, I am a huge Aaron Sanchez fan. His approach to Mexican flavors is humble yet inspired. The contestants are lucky to have him as a mentor.
