The four chefs who make the semi-finals will cook for their judges and past champions and contestants of the show.

The competition will culminate in a 90-minute finale where the three best celebrity cooks will prepare dishes facing the daunting Chef’s Table. Finally, they will impress their judges with their best three-course meals to grab the winning trophy.

A multifaceted woman

Joining Celebrity MasterChef is a big divergence for Stella Parton who lists singer, songwriter, actress, author, and producer as parts of her achievements. 

In addition to her numerous projects, she is also an advocate against domestic violence.

Whether or not she wins the cooking competition, Stella is a champion. May the best chef win.
