Gordon Ramsay’s search for the best home cook in America will continue.

Fox has ordered a third season of Ramsay’s summer reality series Masterchef. The show has been one of the scant few new unscripted broadcast titles in recent years that have found enough of an audience to earn multiple seasons. Ramsay’s fellow judges Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot are also back on board.

Producers are casting a wider net looking for new contestants for season three, the production is going to 11 cities with more to come. The renewal of MasterChef firms up Ramsay’s empire on Fox, which includes upcoming new show Hotel Hell, where Ramsay gives makeovers to struggling motels, hotels and bed and breakfasts.
