Williams will appear on Season 7 of MasterChef hosted by Gordon Ramsay on the FOX network. Williams has nearly $8.5 million in live winnings and even won a WSOP bracelet in 2006, but he’s most known for his runner-up finish at the 2004 WSOP Main Event.
Poker pro David Williams will be among 40 competitors in the season premier June 1 on FOX, which will air at 8 p.m. EST. On MasterChef, hosted and judged by famed TV chef Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi, amateur cooks compete with each other in cooking challenges and are eliminated across a season’s worth of episodes until just one winner remains.
MasterChef is one of the most popular cooking-themed reality shows on American television along with Top Chef. MasterChef auditions amateur cooks, or home chefs, in a nationwide search and then picks the top 40 to compete on the show for $250,000 and other cool stuff like a cookbook deal.
