LOS ANGELES, May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Professional chef, culinary artist, and competitive cooking reality TV show MasterChef alum Derrick Fox is launching a new podcast, A Bunch of Losers with Derrick Fox. The exciting new podcast comes with a unique twist. Fox will bring on famous “not winners” from some of the most-watched reality shows, including MasterChef, RuPaul’s Drag Race, American Idol, and The Bachelor to name a few. Audiences will enjoy a new side of Chef Fox and experience untold stories of life after reality TV. The podcast will be available on YouTube and all major podcast platforms starting Thursday, May 26, 2022, with a new episode available weekly.
“Food is such a great connector, and I’ve met so many amazing people through my work as a chef,” said Fox. There are many incredible stories, especially from contestants in other TV competitions and reality shows. They lost, but they are still flourishing, and A Bunch of Losers will allow people to know them and their life before, during, and after not winning.”
The first episode of A Bunch of Losers will feature Fox’s co-finalist and arch-nemesis from season 6 of MasterChef, Stephen Lee. Fox views Lee as one of the most exciting contestants in the show’s history. The two have unfinished business and will share the details of their friendly competition in the podcast’s premiere.
Fox partnered with video production and marketing agency Front Runner Films to co-produce the podcast. “Derrick has a dynamic, rock star personality which transfers into his culinary work. He brings that same flare and attitude to this podcast,” says Front Runner Films’ founder and creative director, Tyler Nimmons.
