If you think you've got what it takes to become the next MasterChef, here's you chance!

I just recently got on the MasterChef train, but I'm already hooked. I'm a huge cooking show fan, but Chef Gordon Ramsay always kind of scared me. After watching a season with kids competing and seeing how patient he was with them, I was sold. I now pretty much watch anything with Gordon on it.

What captures your heart with MasterChef is that these are home cooks. These contestants are not chefs in restaurants, they are bus drivers, educators, stay at home moms, etc. One contestant this season is an optometrist. They are all competing for the title of MasterChef and the grand prize of $250,000.

That could be you!

MasterChef will be holding an open casting call for season 10 in Dallas on September 29. Although a time and location have yet to be determined, this could be your chance to shine. Pre-registration is open now. You will need to fill out the application and bring it with you to the open call along with your dish.

If this sounds like something you're into, the DO IT! Don't be shy and don't let fear get in your way. Get out there and have an adventure. Who knows, it could end with $250K in your bank account.

Oh, and save me some leftovers.
