On Saturday, November 2, a casting crew from MasterChef, the Fox reality show that gives amateur cooks the opportunity to compete for a huge cash prize, the scintillating MasterChef trophy, and maybe even rainbows and unicorns from chef Gordon Ramsay, who, along with restaurateur Joe Bastianich and chef Graham Elliot, judge and mentor the hopefuls, will grace Denver, where they'll hold open auditions for season five of the award-winning show. "We try to audition a good cross-section of the country, and we were in Denver to audition for season two and had a great turnout, some really great food and great contestants, so we're back here again," says Landin.
The Denver auditions will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 1450 Glenarm Place, and just to make sure you're ready for your cameo (and possible MasterChef title), I chatted with supervising casting producer Erika Landin, who offers the following ten audition tips, which apply to everyone -- those of you willing to risk the humiliation of defeat or celebrate the jubilation of victory.
