[via press release from FOX]

TOP FOUR FINALISTS NAMED ON "MASTERCHEF"

Home Cooks Christine Ha, Josh Marks, Frank Mirando and Becky Reams Compete For Spot in Top Three Tuesday, August 28, on FOX

Monti Carlo Eliminated from Competition

Tonight, it was revealed that Christine Ha from Houston, TX; Josh Marks from Jackson, MS; Frank Mirando from Holtsville, NY; and Becky Reams from Stilwell, KS, are the Top Four finalists on MASTERCHEF, after Monti Carlo, from Los Angeles, CA, was eliminated.

In the next all-new episode airing Tuesday, Aug. 28 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top Four home cooks will split into two teams and prepare an exquisite three-course meal for judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot and three world-renowned, Michelin-starred chefs: Daniel Boulud, Alain Ducasse and Guy Savoy.

The following week, in Part One of the two-part season finale airing Tuesday, Sept. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top Three contestants compete head-to-head in the last mystery box challenge, but only two home cooks will advance to the final showdown. Then, on the final showdown airing Monday, Sept. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top Two finalists have one last chance to prove they have the passion, skill and drive to turn their culinary dream into a reality. Only one home cook will be crowned America's next MASTERCHEF and walk away with a book deal and the $250,000 grand prize.
