‘MasterChef’ winners list: All seasons

Gordon Ramsay’s “MasterChef” debuted July 27, 2010 on Fox following an episode of spiritual cousin series “Hell’s Kitchen.” While the latter reality TV show features professionals, “MasterChef” is open to amateurs who have mostly only cooked at home. Each season the judges are tasked with cutting down the number of chef-testants until only one remains. The winner takes home a cash prize of $250,000 and the coveted trophy, plus some champs have even received cookbook deals.

Throughout the years, several co-judges have stood beside Chef Ramsay on the competition series, including Graham Elliot, Joe Bastianich, Christina Tosi and Aaron Sanchez. Scheduling note: the program aired once a year beginning in 2010, but the 11th season was temporarily delayed in 2020 due to Covid-19; it finally aired in 2021.
