It was the ultimate snack-down when Michelin Star Chef Gordon Ramsay and renowned pastry chef Christina Tosi invite celebrities into the MASTERCHEF kitchen who showed off their culinary skills on the exciting head-to-head contests for charity on the all-new MASTERCHEF CELEBRITY SHOWDOWN, which aired Monday, Jan. 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
The two-hour special placed each celebrity competitor to the test in the kitchen, and also featured the first-ever battle royale between MASTERCHEF’s own Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi! In each face-off, more than bragging rights are at stake – the winners earn donations to the charity of their choice.
Here was the MASTERCHEF match-up:
