Here is how it worked in case you are not familiar.

Approximately 20 to 25 people were brought on with their families to make a signature dish of their own. Once your dish is complete, you go to face the judges behind closed doors for them to taste test.

Here were the judges for the premiere: Gordon RamseyJoe BastianichAaron Sanchez and guest judge Paula Deen.

Behind those doors, these chefs are brutally honest and if they think you have what it takes, they give you an apron as your ticket to compete for the season.

Congratulations to Michael Newman for not only receiving an apron, but receiving the FINAL apron that was handed out that evening with his vegan crabcakes!

There was a huge premiere party that was held at the Asbury Park Ale House this past Wednesday in honor of the first episode airing and it was a HOOT.

Here is a video that was captured once the big reveal of his apron aired:

Yours truly got to work the red carpet and I even wore real heels for the first time in months. (Um…..OUCH!)

I have to give a shout out to my awesome camera guy & videographer, John Sabia who was amazing to work with because he knew his stuff. Check him out at @Socialitize!

There were A LOT of cool people there that I got to meet and interview.

Before we look at everything from the premiere, just keep in mind to tune in to FOX’s Master Chef: Legends every Wednesday at 8:00 PM to root Michael on!

He is repping the Jersey Shore after all!
