‘Empire,’ ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Stars to Compete on ‘MasterChef Celebrity Showdown’

Fox competition will be judged by Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi

Fox is serving up a celebrity edition of cooking competitions “MasterChef” and spinoff “MasterChef Junior.”

Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi will judge January competition “MasterChef Celebrity Showdown,” which boasts Gigi Hadid, Devon Windsor, Terry and Rebecca Crews, Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, Katlin Doubleday, and Ta’Rhonda Jones. Plus, “MasterChef” and “MasterChef Junior” winners will battle it out in the kitchen — all in the name of a cash prize for charity.

“MasterChef” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Endemol Shine. Elisabeth Murdoch, Eden Gaha, Robin Ashbrook, Gordon Ramsay, Adeline Ramage Rooney, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler serve as executive producers.

The two-hour special airs Jan. 18, 2016 on Fox.
