Gordon Ramsay’s Next Level Chef is the newest FOX series that will premiere next year. The cooking competition series will bring 15 home cooks, chef influencers, and private chefs to the show to overcome difficult challenges.
The winner will be titled season one’s Next Level Chef and awarded a $250,000 cash prize. With Ramsay as the judge, the cooking show is not for faint-hearted participants.
One such tough competitor is Roice Bethel. The 29-year-old is a home cook who got famous with his TikTok cooking videos. He describes himself as a food and cooking content creator.
His bio on collabstr (a website for influencers) reads:
“I create videos about food and cooking on my platform. I am a home cook who loves to grill and barbecue and cook just about anything that tastes amazing.”
Roice Bethel is a photographer
Born in Brazil, Bethel grew up and stayed in Corona, California. The 29-year-old is an incredible cook, but he is a photographer by profession.
His Instagram is filled with postcard-perfect pictures, which are just breathtaking. Most of the photos are of underwater, beaches, and his wife.
Bethel married Miriam last year, and they are currently living a happily married life. She, too, seems adventurous, like the Next Level Chef contestant.
Going by his social media profile, Bethel has traveled to a range of places, from Hawaii to Santa Barbara and Kulaniapia Falls. It looks like he has to travel because of his profession as a photographer.
