FOX has ordered a third season of the hit culinary competition series "MasterChef."

Chef Gordon Ramsay will once again give talented amateur cooks the chance to prove to him, and to fellow judges, restaurateur Joe Bastianich (Del Posto, Eataly) and Chef Graham Elliot (Graham Elliot, Grahamwich), that they have what it takes to make their mark on the culinary world. In the series, Ramsay, Bastianich and Elliot coach and critique the amateur cooks in a series of challenges designed to test their palates, knowledge and determination to follow their dreams of making a mark in the culinary world.

"MasterChef" will travel to more cities than ever before to uncover the country's very best amateur cooks. Open casting calls begin Saturday, Oct. 29.

Over the past two seasons, the $250,000 grand prize and title of "MasterChef" have gone to Jennifer Behm, a realtor from Wilmington, Del.; and Whitney Miller, a student from Poplarville, Miss. Since winning the show, Miller released her first cookbook, while Behm is currently writing a cookbook and already has established a successful private catering company.

Additional casting information, including forms and eligibility requirements, are available online at www.masterchefcasting.com.
