Joe Bastianich Lights Money on Fire in MasterChef Season 4 Trailer

MasterChef season four is gearing up for its premiere on May 22 at 8 PM and it looks like this one will be wackier than ever. Check out the ridiculous trailer in the clip above, featuring Joe Bastianich dramatically lighting a wad of cash on fire in a pan with a splash of olive oil, a live ostrich and a breast milk mac 'n cheese challenge. You can't make this stuff up, folks. [via The Braiser]


  1. I'm a contestant on this season of MasterChef.

    I can't even tell you how disgusted I was when Joe lit that stack of "money" (I am assuming it was fake) on fire in front of us. What a ridiculously callous gesture - whether symbolic or not - in a time when so many people are in such dire financial straits.

    Also, destroying money is illegal. Simulate a federal crime for.. what? It didn't make any sort of sense.

    What an idiot.

    Come on, its a tv show.
