One of the most relaxing (until the finale) and adorable reality franchises on TV is losing a judge. TheWrap reports that Graham Elliot is leaving Masterchef and Masterchef Junior at the end of this season. Graham appeared on Masterchef since its debut in 2010 and on the ever-charming Junior since 2013. “I learned so much from the people I got to work with and it has been a true honor to share my love of cooking with the audiences who have allowed me into their homes over the last 6 years,” Elliot said in a statement. “I remain committed to using my passion for cooking as a way to entertain and teach people of all ages, and will be making some exciting announcements about the next steps of that journey in the new year.” Fox will announce a new judge in 2016.
