"We're excited to be back for another season of Masterchef," Ramsay said in a statement.  "I am continually amazed by the raw talent, passion and creativity of home cooks across America. The contestants raise the bar every season, and it's an inspiration and exciting challenge for us."  

"Gordon and the producers really took Masterchef to a whole new level this year. The talent is absolutely fantastic, the competition is unbelievably intense, and it's become one of the most compelling, heart-stopping hours on television," Fox's President of Alternative Entertainment, Mike Darnell, said. "Over the course of three seasons, Masterchef has inspired millions of home cooks around the country to pursue their dreams in the kitchen, and I can't wait for the show to inspire even more people with another season on Fox."

Masterchef airs this week on Monday and Tuesday at 9/8c on Fox.
