What does this all mean? Well, these are the people who we will see either get a white apron or be shown the door. Getting a white apron basically means the judges say, "Meh. You can obviously boil water. Your presentation dish doesn't make me want to gag." We will meet them all in the first two episodes (the audition episodes), February 8th and 15th.

Originally scheduled to premiere on February 8th, CTV has just announced it will begin Sunday, February 1, immediately following the Superbowl - whenever that will be. Episode 2 will air February 8.
