Grubhub Is Bringing The MasterChef Kitchen To Your Door

Have you ever watched MasterChef and wished you could taste the plated food the contestants whip up? According to a press release, food delivery service Grubhub has teamed with MasterChef network FOX to deliver the MasterChef culinary experience straight to your door. Starting today, if you live in one of 20 debut markets — including New York City, Boston, Chicago, and DC — you can Grubhub a MasterChef meal to enjoy at home.

MasterChef, which consistently lands in the number one spot for unscripted TV (via Variety), began as MasterChef USA, a spin-off from the UK's MasterChef, which aired in 2000 as a limited two-season series, according to TV Over Mind. In 2010, MasterChef USA returned but rebranded as MasterChef.

Hosted by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey, home cooks are given four challenges — an elimination test, a team challenge, a pressure test, and the fan-favorite mystery box — across one to two episodes. Contestants are booted off after the elimination and pressure tests. 

MasterChef began with 14 contestants vying for the number one spot. Over the years, the number of contestants increased to between 20 and 24, with season 10 offering an astounding 36 aspiring chefs.

Gordon Ramsey has been the throughline of the show's 12 seasons as host and part of the judging panel, which sees a rotation of other celebrity chefs and restauranteurs. Season 12, which began in May, features Ramsey with restauranteur Joe Bastianich and chef Aarón Sánchez returning as judges (via Parade).
