"It's amazing and refreshing to see how much passion and raw talent there is from amateur home cooks across America," said Ramsay. "It's extraordinary the amount of energy and excitement the show brought in Season One, and I'm thrilled to be back at Fox for a second season."

The Season 1 finale will air Sept. 15, when the remaining four cooks go head-to-head. The winner will earn the title of America's Best Home Cook, $250,000 and a cookbook-publishing deal.
