I'm watching the current episode (I think from last night) and the final person given an apron, and entered into the next round turns out to be a hombrewer. His name's Ben Starr,(Facebook page) and although he seems a little geeky (like most of us) the chef judges seem blown away by him.

You can see his segment in the last block of masterchef on hulu here. (Skip to 34:49)

He also has evidently some youtube videos where you can see his somewhat exuberant demeanor-


He made a fish taco which incorporated roasted pumpkin, and his PUMPKIN IPA (I want the recipe!!!!!)

(I wonder if he's one of us here?!?)

Here's wishing him well!!!!!!!

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

Indeed I am! Not nearly the masters that most of you are, still learning, but I've been brewing for 4 years and I'm a full fledged addict. Just upgraded to kegging last year and built a nice 4-tap kegerator in my garage. Thanks for watching, everyone! It will be a wild season.

Ben, I really enjoyed your segment on the show. I think I would be supporting even without the brewing connection! You come across with brilliant enthusiasm and zeal, and immensely likable. Best of luck in the show. I guess I'll have to start following it now!!

Ben,
I'll be rooting for you. My SWMBO said that your forgetting the secret ingredient then laughing about it would be something I would do. Hilarious! good luck.

Good Luck! We'll be watching and we'll be respectful of your Non-Disclosure agreements.

Which, hopefully does not apply to the Pumpkin IPA.
