Mehreen Karim On Next Level Chef
Fox has resumed airing Next Level Chef season 2, which debuted on February 12, 2023. The program is an epic, one-of-a-kind cooking competition with a distinctive venue for the contestants. The Next Level Chef set is located in a structure with more than three floors and a significantly different kitchen on each floor from the one before.
The chefs, under the direction of well-known chefs Gordon Ramsay, Nyesha Arrington, and Richard Blais, must work to produce culinary magic no matter the conditions in the kitchen, from the difficult bottom of the basement to the opulent top floor. The top home cooks, social media chefs, and professional chefs have joined the cast and been divided into three separate teams after being hand-selected by Ramsay and his co-mentors after scouring the nation.
The stakes are high for the competing cooks with a one-year mentoring and $250,000 on the line.
Mehreen Karim is one of the 18 contestants this season. She is currently working as a home-cook now. But, two episodes in, she is still safe. The contestant to be sent home in episode 2 of season 2 was Alex Morizio of Brooklyn, New York. The first contestant to be eliminated was Kamahlai Stewart.
