You don't have to be a fan of MasterChef to know and understand who Gordon Ramsay is. He's a no-nonsense type of chef who rarely gives grace to chef contestants on reality TV. And for the most part, these chefs tend to shrink back from him. But in an exclusive clip ahead of the June 5 episode of MasterChef: Generations one of the "boomer" chefs says that Gordon Ramsay isn't intimidating at all.

According to her, she isn't afraid of anyone, including the celebrity chef. And on a show where the stakes are high and there are only a limited number of spots per group of boomers, gen z contestants, and millennials, that's important. Now, if only that would ensure her a spot for the duration of the season.

Apparently, Gordon Ramsay isn't intimidating to everyone on 'MasterChef: Generations.'

In the clip, the contestant, who is part of the Baby Boomer group, faces Gordon with judge Aarón Sánchez, who warns her about what happens when Gordon takes out his infamous pencil that gets tucked behind his ear when he gives chefs a piece of his mind. But it doesn't seem to faze the contestant in the clip, and that kind of tenacity is what she needs in this competition.

"I'm not afraid of anybody," she says. "I got no fear. I'm gonna have some fun." She later adds that she is "ready" for Gordon's tough side. "He has not seen a mother with a wooden spoon." She then yells at Gordon to "f--k off" with a smile, to which he laughs as he walks away. He might have very well met his match with this one.

Season 14 of 'MasterChef' features a theme of different generations competing.

Each season of MasterChef features a different theme, even if the general format remains the same. Season 13 was MasterChef: United Tastes of America. It featured groups of contestants who each focused on one different region of food in the U.S. Before that, in Season 12, we had MasterChef: Back to Win. It featured — you guessed it — all returning players. And for the fourteenth season, there's another clever twist on the competition.

Subtitled Generations, Season 14 of MasterChef features people whose ages land them in the categories of Baby Boomer, Millennial, or Gen Z. Each group is given a limited number of spots in the finals to compete on the show. And they're all here to prove something, whether it be that young go-hards should be taken seriously as chefs or older cooks should still be revered in the kitchen.

Watch MasterChef: Generations on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox and the next day on Hulu.
