The Funniest Thing That's Ever Happened On Masterchef, According To Gordon Ramsay

The U.S. verson of Masterchef has aired on Fox for several years now. While Gordon Ramsay has been a constant on the reality competition series, a lot of the other judges have changed out over time. Christina Tosi joined the show as a judge during Season 6, and recently, Gordon Ramsay revealed that his favorite moment while filming the TV series actually featured the female Masterchef judge. Here's what he had to say:

My favorite moment on Masterchef was when Christina Tosi and I were in the middle of a field and we were about to go head to head with red team versus blue team, and we were doing a coin toss. Christina flicked the coin, and fell flat on her ass. And it was that funny moment, that it was like, oh my god, one of the best pastry chefs in the world can't even flip a coin! And she flipped, and she slipped on her Wellies, and she did the splits, rolled on her back, got covered in mud, and it was all over the flip of a coin. It was so funny.

I can't say that I've seen every episode of Masterchef that has aired, but I have seen quite a few---especially since Tosi joined the series--and I honestly don't remember this ever happening.Gordon Ramsay's comments in his most recent AMA make me wonder whether this was footage that never made the show or whether this is footage we will actually see in an upcoming episode of Masterchef. After all, Masterchef is currently airing its seventh season on Fox. In addition, the show has already been renewed for Season 8, but I'm presuming that set of episodes hasn't started filming, yet, as casting has just commenced.

Still, while we know Christina Tosi rocks out as a pastry chef, I've yet to see evidence of her athletic prowess. In fact, we're more likely to catch moments like this during the Fox series:

Along with certain info about Masterchef, Ramsay also spoke out about the dishes people need to know how to cook, why he does sometimes use the microwave, and why he's incredibly grateful to be able to do all of the wonderful things he gets to do on TV and in the restaurant world.
