Prairie Village native Kyle Hopkins will make his debut this week as a contestant on FOX’s “MasterChef: United Tastes of America” this week.

The Shawnee Mission East alum, who now lives across State Line in the Brookside area of Kansas City, Mo., served up “the pork chop of my life” to international chef star and restaurateur Gordon Ramsay in his audition for a top spot in the reality TV cooking competition.

Hopkin’s appearance, which has already been filmed, can be watched during Wednesday night’s MasterChef episode on FOX.
