Masterchef Canada

I remember catching one episode of season 1 last year and was surprised to see one of the judges was Asian. I wasn’t surprised at how harsh and critical he could be at times. His name is Alvin Leung who grew up in Scarborough, Ontario but born in London, England. He is impressively a self taught cook who opened two restaurants that gained Michelin stars. The winner of season 1 was Eric Chong in a very tight finale. Season 2 has two Asian Canadian contestants, Christopher Siu and Debra Pangestu. I haven’t caught an episode of season 2 yet so I don’t know how well they’re doing.
