'MasterChef Junior' winner: Dara or Alexander?

SPOILER ahead. Which! Of these two kind, genuine, well-spoken adolescents — a rarity! on any television program — rose to the top and won the STUNNING! title of first-ever MasterChef Junior? And the winner is….

NYC Marathon: Pamela Anderson, Patrick Wilson, Bill Rancic, more celebs run -- PHOTOS


A record 50,740 runners showed up for Sunday’s NYC Marathon, and among those brave souls was a handful of celebrities, who took to social media to share pictures from the scene and information about the causes they were supporting.

One celeb there as a fan was Sean Penn, who sponsored five Haitian runners through his J/P Haitian Relief Organization to run their first American marathon. Last month, after returning from Port-au-Prince to watch the runners train, Penn told The Associated Press, “I love their great discipline and spirit.” Penn posed for a picture with the runners following the race:

'MasterChef Junior' premiere: A bit too sweet?

Oh no. Very talented children. In a STUNNING! turn for the worse, I feel more creaky and less accomplished than ever before now that I have watched a 9-year-old whip up a molten lava cake with glazed raspberries that Gordon Ramsay awarded “a 10 out of 10.” It’s MasterChef…Junior! READ FULL STORY

'MasterChef' season 4 winner: Natasha or Luca?

“I’m gonna get into the kitchen and kick his ass,” said blue-haired Natasha Crnjac of her MasterChef season 4 finale rival Luca Manfe, a blue-eyed prince from Queens. “I wuhhhhhk. So hahhhd!” yelled Luca re: his journey from the rugged fields of his native Italy to the sparkling counters of the STUNNING! MasterChef kitchen. The two sweated out their final three-course meals for the salivating judges. And the season 4 winner…. is…. coming up! After the break. READ FULL STORY

'MasterChef' react: Three potato, two potato

In another double episode of MasterChef — “The most. Explosive. Episode in HISTORY!” claimed a stunning Gordon Ramsay voiceover — we saw the Top 4 become the Top 3 following a dreaded pressure test that had me digging desperately through my cabinets to find even the oldest, grossest shavings of chocolate to snack on. I shall never learn. I need to just slather cookie butter on top of, like, six Twix and nibble on them gradually throughout the two hours. Boom. MasterChef.

Then, the judges narrowed it down to just two home cooks to compete in next week’s fin-ah-lee. And they are (SPOILERS JUST AHEAD)…. READ FULL STORY

'MasterChef': Meet! Gordon Ramsay's teenage son. A stunning! Lamb.

Disgraced butter-baller Paula Deen has found work again — and on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, no less. AWKWARD. (And especially weird considering Walmart, MasterChef‘s favorite gourmet supermarket, cut its ties with Deen this summer.) Fox did its best to not advertise Deen’s guest judge appearance (filmed before all the scandal) and tuck it into a two-hour episode. And they’re in luck! I have no interest in dwelling on this. Paula Deen came, she screamed her heavily edited sentences, she drove the Top 5 around on a tractor, she advised a contestant to “Turn that sucker on blast,” and that was it. I’m much more intrigued by….

Gordon Ramsay’s absolutely! Stunningly! Cute. And well-mannered! Adorable British son, Jack. Check out their matching belts! And curt. Optimism! READ FULL STORY

'MasterChef': Restaurant Takeover! The Top 5 are...

“Please. Bring! Your calamari. Down to the front bench thank you.” –Unique Gordon Ramsay Cadence of the Week

Three of the Top 6 had to fight for their aprons in a fried calamari pressure test following a relatively smooth Restaurant Takeover at Wolfgang Puck’s downtown L.A. Chinese restaurant, WP24. I say relatively because despite a raw scallop or 22 and some lettuce cups that resembled soggy blankets, the home chefs gamely worked with what they had, which was zero skills in cooking Asian food. Krissi the bully hates Asian food! Not even MasterChef judge Joe Bastianich would have any idea how to cook in a wok! That restaurant was doomed from the start. I’m surprised there weren’t more customer wok-outs. (Sorry.) (SPOILER ahead.) READ FULL STORY

'MasterChef' Top 7 react: The birds are alive

This week the home chefs had to cradle an adorable live bird in their arms, then cook one of its siblings — because apparently my Disgusted Facial Expression hero Bri had not quite suffered enough! SPOILER AHEAD. Which of the Top 7 headed home following this fowl predicament?

“Come on, guys,” pleaded Gordon Ramsay. “The bird. Has to be the hero!” READ FULL STORY

'MasterChef' Top 6 react: What the cluck?

Welcome back to Sweat Rag Lynn, bombastic Bime, and Bri the vegetarian — only one of whom officially returned to the MasterChef competition as of tonight, following a sunny-side-up egg challenge (SO. MANY. BROKEN. PLATES.) and a classic ‘n’ basic salmon dinner competition in the M.C. Restaurant. Spoilers ahead! The returning home cook…. is….. coming up, after a long-ass commercial break!

'MasterChef' Top 7 react: Sushi will shatter your dreams

I still can’t believe MasterChef is only on for one hour now instead of two. I’m sad, but my gut is happy considering I can’t watch this or any cooking show without competing in the Snack Olympics the whole time. Only 60 minutes of mainlining spicy croutons and Haribo raspberries instead of 120? I’m practically wasting away. Email me for more diet tips, I’m the best. So which of the Top 7 headed home tonight after failing to achieve instant prowess in preparing “a stunning! Japanese cuisine”? SPOILERS ahead! READ FULL STORY
