The home cooks will learn how to break down a crab, cook for and serve 25 wildfire heroes who fought to save hundreds of houses in the southern California wildfires, prepare and serve a beer-infused lunch for 101 employees of the Anheuser Busch Brewery and face the show’s classic restaurant takeover challenge. In the end, only one home cook will claim the title of MASTERCHEF and the $250,000 grand prize.
