Meet Season 10 'MasterChef' Finalist Bri Baker, Aka the "Plating Queen"
The MasterChef competition is definitely heating up! Season 10 of the reality series has brought together the fiercest cooks competing to win a cash prize of $250,000, and the chance to apprentice in one of their mentor’s restaurants. “I got doors opened for me at a young age, so that’s my responsibility to continue that,” said acclaimed chef Gordon Ramsay to Variety. Basically, this is every striving cook’s dream.
Hosted by chef Ramsay, chef Aarón Sanchez, and restaurateur Joe Bastianich, these tough food experts will not settle for anything less than perfect. One finalist (out of the 20 home cooks) that caught our eye is 25-year-old cocktail server Bri Baker. The Texas native may be one of the youngest competing on the newest season, but that doesn’t mean she lacks skill. Here’s what to know about MasterChef finalist Brielle Baker.
She calls herself the “plating queen.”
According to Bri’s website, she grew up traveling the world with her family and got inspired to cook from experiencing fine dining restaurants at an early age. "Learning to cook was something I strived for on my own, which makes it that much more special to me," she wrote. As to what fuels her desire to cook, she explained on the site: “It is the excitement of a blank canvas. I love being creative with food because it's extremely multidimensional and the possibilities are endless.”

She continued, “You can experiment with textures, patterns, height, and more, and to me the endless possibilities are what drive me to continue to work with food on a daily basis.” Her website features decadent looking foods, which are unsurprisingly plated with a high-level of skill and finesse.
On Instagram, Bri recently showed off a stunning lamb chop plate, which she recreated in memory of her time on the show. “Tonight’s @masterchefonfox episode was so much fun to watch & reminisce all the fun (and stressful) times! Although it’s scary to wear that black apron, it was so exhilarating to cook in the MasterChef kitchen again!” she captioned the picture.
You should definitely follow Brielle on Instagram.
Besides posting beautifully crafted dishes on social media, the Masterchef contender also does some modeling in her spare time. Scrolling through her page, the Barbie-esque cook has shared many snaps of herself modeling different outfits. We wouldn’t be surprised if her stint on the reality show propels her to social media influencer fame. She certainly has the talent and creativity!
Does Bri Baker have a boyfriend?
While her social media does not state if she’s single or not, it appears she may be dating photographer @b.moore.creative. He is tagged on many of her modeling pictures and food videos as the photographer.
He also posted a solo photo of the blonde beauty on his Instagram two months ago to wish the aspiring cook a happy birthday. He wrote, “Gordon Ramsay told me she’s out of my league. He might be onto something.”
