Ex-finalist on ‘Masterchef’ Josh Marks arrested in Chicago 

Former “Masterchef” finalist and all-around sweetie pie Josh Marks was arrested in Chicago after some seriously bizarre, troubling behavior. You might remember him as the extremely driven, 7-foot-2 contestant who was bested by Christine Ha in the finale.

Marks had to be subdued by two police officers after he allegedly lunged at them, tried to strike one with his fist and attempted to grab his gun, according to TMZ. Stranger still was what he said to them, that “Masterchef” co-host Gordon Ramsay had possessed his body and then transformed him into God.

TMZ says he “remains in the hospital, chained to a bed.” Let’s hope he is offered the same graces that were given to Amanda Bynes, especially since he’s looking at two felonies.
