What is a national reality TV show without a Dallas contestant? That is meant to be a rhetorical question, but if you can name one, feel free to comment below. Anywhoo, the casting director for Fox’s Master Chef With Gordon Ramsay just “told” me the show, a “Foodie American Idol,” was coming to Dallas to look for potential contestants. (Here is how the Hollywood Reporter describes the upcoming show. They are looking for “people who are passionate about cooking without having professional experience.” (Boy, I could go a lot of places with that line, but I won’t.) Maybe Mr. Ramsay will listen to my pitch for a food show—Food Bitches—a show that follows female food writers.
UPDATE: They will be here “either January 9 and/or 10th.”
UPDATE: From one of the casting director: “Hi everyone! I am one of the casting directors for the show. Master Chef is a different kind of show than Gordon’s other projects. It is an inspirational show that celebrates passionate people who have a love for cooking! We have been told there is no shouting on this one….more encouragement. Master Chef has been a widely popular show in UK and Australia for years. Please call me if you have any questions we would love to have many come audition. 424-236-7500 Ext 7603. We will have more info shortly regarding when and where we will be. Hope to see you all!”
