Get to know one of the top contestants from MASTERCHEF

If you are a fan of Aaron Sanchez, Joe Bastianich, or even the little-known Gordon Ramsay, you've likely been watching this season—the tenth!—of MasterChef. Stakes have never been higher: In addition to the requisite cash prize ($250,000, to be exact), the winner will have the opportunity to actually apprentice in their mentor's restaurants. As such, the judges have never expected more, and the contestants have never been stronger.
