MasterChef: Gordon Ramsay Weighs In On Arrest of Former Contestant


Gordon Ramsay is finally speaking out about the bizarre incident involving his former MASTERCHEF contestant Josh Marks.

Marks — a 26 year-old former basketball player — was arrested by University of Chicago police on Tuesday, claiming that the “asshole” chef had possessed him and turned him into God.

“I am obviously concerned for him deeply,” Ramsay told me.  “I wish him all the best and more importantly I hope for him and his family’s sake that he is getting help.  I will be monitoring the situation carefully.  We only found out yesterday.”

So far Ramsay says he has not reached out to the trouble reality contestant.

He is busy promoting JUNIOR MASTERCHEF, which will premiere this fall on Fox.
