Yachecia Holston is the minister from Detroit competing on MasterChef Season 8. For the season’s first team challenge – making fresh fish and veggie dishes on the beach to 101 hungry lifeguards, Yachecia is teamed up with high school music teacher Jason Wang. Jason makes a big mistake when he sends out soggy eggplant to their guests. You can bet, Gordon Ramsay notices!
Based on Yachecia’s Facebook SheikCooks, Yachecia’s specialty is fried chicken. On Father’s Day weekend, she ran a pop-up chicken shop at Craig Memorial Tabernacle in Puritan, Detroit where she sold bottles of her $10 special dipping sauce, That Sweet Hottness. MasterChef airs Wednesdays at 8pm on FOX.
