New MasterChef Season A Generational Battle

The big change this season is that MasterChef US is a battle between the generations. The first episode saw contestants qualifying as millennials (1980-1994). The next episodes will bring in the boomers (1946-1964), Gen X (1965-1979), and Gen Z (1995-2009) competitors

The guest judges will know the gaps between the generations as the home chefs will compete for the title of MasterChef champion and the $250,000 prize. As for the differences between the three groups, each of the guest judges had something to say about their generation.

Priya Krishna said millennials were ruining everything, but she said they were the one generation that actually defied stereotypes and created something different. The boomers are all about tradition, according to Lidia Bastianich. Lidia said they are all about doing things right and not experimenting as much as millennials.

As for Gen X, the latchkey generation, Christina Ha said they had to survive by learning how to do things themselves at a young age. They didn’t have cheats like TikTok and YouTube and they had to figure out things out on their own.

For Gen Z, Nick DiGiovanni said that his generation had everything they needed to learn how to be the best at things thanks to things like TikTok and YouTube.
