Gordon Ramsay has tapped restaurateur-winemaker Joe Bastianich and four-star chef Graham Elliot Bowles for MasterChef .

Ramsay's new competition series, which will air on Fox, puts amateur chefs to the test in various challenges as they try to become culinary masters. Ramsay will head up the series, and Bastianich and Bowles will serve as both judges and mentors to the contestants.
