Starting Wednesday night, 40 home cooks will compete to see who will become the next “MasterChef.”

This season’s lineup includes two people from Hawaii.

Paige Jimenez is a swimsuit model from Honolulu, and Tom Ward is a draftsman from Pahoa.

Contestants will be put through a series of challenges and elimination rounds in order to turn one home cook into a culinary master. The winner receives a cookbook deal and $250,000.

The judges’ panel features award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, pastry chef Christina Tosi, and chef and restaurateur Aarón Sánchez.

Season 8 premieres Wednesday, May 31, at 7 p.m. right here on KHON2.
