Once again, Descriptive Video Works is proud to make MasterChef Canada accessible to the blind and partially sighted audience by providing the audio description for this lively show. Season 2 debuts on February 8th with a new crop of home cooks competing for the grand prize of $100,000, the trophy, and the title of Canada’s next MasterChef.
Season Two promises to be an exciting and entertaining one, featuring home cooks from all across the country, including a single mother of six, a former BC Lion, and a small-town veterinarian. Also returning for Season Two are the three MasterChef Canada judges; professional chefs Michael Bonacini, Claudio Aprile, and Alvin Leung.
In the first 2 episodes, the contestants face the nerve-wracking audition process, where they have to prepare their signature dish and present it to the judges. At least 2 of the judges have to vote “yes” for their dish in order for them to receive the coveted white apron.
Once the finalists are chosen, the home cooks will battle it out to become one of the Top 16. Then, over the course of the season, contestants will do their best (“like their lives depend on it!”, according to judge Alvin) to avoid elimination by winning challenges that will include special guests, mystery boxes, and a restaurant takeover. Descriptive Video Works will be along for the ride too, describing the action (and food!) every step of the way.
Please join us for another unpredictable season of the ultimate Foodie Fight – MasterChef Canada! Who knows what the future holds in store for the winner? Season One winner Eric Chong has already gone from home cook to restaurant chef! In partnership with judge Alvin, Eric will be opening an Asian/Fusion restaurant this year in Toronto.
Now if only someone would invent “Smell-O-Vision”!
MasterChef Canada debuts February 8th at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on CTV. Please check with your cable provider if you need help turning on the described video, this promises to be a Season not to miss!
