It's easy to understand why Gordon Ramsay wants to stay on television and out of the live-action version of Ratatouille being produced at his U.K. restaurant Maze Grill. It's harder to digest why so many toques line up to be on his T.V. shows, certain to be dressed-down by the raging, red-faced Brit and called a "poseur" by Joe Bastianich. Yes, Ramsay's U.S. version of MasterChef is coming back for a second season on Fox and plans upcoming open casting calls in nine U.S. cities for all chefs who desire short-lived fame through the trials of verbal abuse. All hopeful chef-testants must bring one prepared dish with them, though they need not worry about it being thrown at their "stupid, bloody" heads, as one casting agent assures us that Ramsay probably won't be attending any of the sessions. The selection process begins on November 6th in L.A. before spreading to Boston, New York, Chicago, and points in between. See the full line-up of times, dates, and locations below.
