Sure, you like other cooking competitions enough, but this one’s right in the sweet spot. It’s ambitious — there’s inevitably one souffle challenge per season that has you wringing your hands with stress — but features average Americans just like you that have a flair for the culinary arts. Lucky you, another season is right around the corner. So when does MasterChef season 9 episode 1, the season 9 premiere, kick things off?
It’s fun to watch the professionals do what they do best, but there’s something even more gratifying about watching a person who could be your next door neighbor wow the likes of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, Food Network regular Aarón Sanchez and pastry queen Christina Tosi.
What can you expect from the MasterChef season 9 premiere?
In case you haven’t yet caught the premiere episode of a past season, expect to see average chefs from across the country battle for a spot in the actual show. In groups ranging from two to four, the cooks will be challenged to all create the same dish in an amount of time that will make your palms sweat. The judges will then weigh in and decide which of the cooks has earned an apron, securing them a spot in the actual MasterChef season 9 competition.
You might want to pop some popcorn for this one, too, because the opening episode, MasterChef season 9 episode 1, is a generous two hours long to account for all these head-to-head battles. You’ll also see brief interviews with some of the contenders, and a favorite for you might even arise by the end of the episode.
What time does MasterChef season 9 episode 1 start?
Tune into FOX by 8:00 p.m. EST sharp tonight, Wednesday, May 30 for MasterChef season 9 episode 1, or the MasterChef season 9 premiere. The episode will wrap up — and the final roster of chefs heading into the season to battle for the ultimate title will be set — by 10:00 p.m. EST.

You can expect another two-hour-long episode next week from the culinary competition before the series settles into its season slot of 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, June 13. But you might want to set aside the two hours anyway, since the show will be followed by Gordon Ramsay’s new series as soon as it starts its one-hour-long episodes.
