All about MasterChef Season 12 Episode 2

Episode 12 of MasterChef Season 12 will air on Wednesday. The official description of the episode titled Back to Win – Audition Battles reads:

"The audition battles continue this week on the most competitive season of MASTERCHEF yet. For those who fell short in past seasons, these auditions are a chance to fulfill their culinary dreams. This week, three chefs who competed on MASTERCHEF JUNIOR enter the kitchen for the first time as adults."

MasterChef Junior contestants Dara Yu and Shayne Wells competed in seasons 1 and 5 of the show, respectively. Yu reached the final, while Wells ranked in third place, making it to the semi-finals.

Wells was 13-years-old while Yu was 12-years-old when they participated in MasterChef Junior. The chefs are now all grown up and much more skilled.

Yu has “graduated with High Honors from the Baking and Pastry Arts Associates program” from Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, in 2019. Wells got a job at a restaurant called Fu Muchang in Texas.

Speaking about the junior chefs returning to MasterChef Season 12 for a second chance, judge Gordon Ramsay once said:

"The big shock for me was witnessing two of the incredible MasterChef Juniors, now adults, competing in Back to Win. Boy are they good, and when I say good I mean good like there is no tomorrow."

In a preview of the show, judge Gordon Ramsay is seen reconnecting with Wells. The third chef from MasterChef Junior competing on the show is unknown.

Will the contestants be able to impress the judges for the second time? All will be revealed in episode 2 of MasterChef.
