MasterChef has some of the most enticing ingredients on the planet.

...and then there's this thing.

We told the contestants that the sea urchins were deadly dangerous.
They'll believe pretty much anything we tell them.

Gordon's buddy David Beckham showed up one day.

Me 'n' Graham

Guy Savoy catches on to my surreptitious photo-taking.

Now that Season 3 of MasterChef has come to a close, it's time for a photo retrospective.

The set and lighting designers on this show are geniuses. 
You would never know that the Audition Episodes 
are filmed in a warehouse in Lynwood, California. 
And those produce crates are filled with tile. 

"I ain't no bum, Mick! I ain't no bum!"

I know there's a spatula around here somewhere...

The first Team Challenge: cooking at Camp Pendleton.

This is the Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion, the U.S. military's biggest helicopter. 
It blew our crew off its feet (and nearly toppled the jib camera).

Someone tell the talent that this is gonna be louder than the limo they're used to.

Even though I'm Hollywood scum, the colonel was very nice to me. 

We got million-dollar props and hundreds of extremely overqualified extras thanks to you, the U.S. taxpayer!
