Albert's Alligator Dish Is No Joke on Premiere of 'MasterChef' (VIDEO)

Albert, 'MasterChef' premiereGordon Ramsay returned for a second round of 'MasterChef' (Mon., 8PM ET on FOX) in the first of a two-night premiere. Tonight, the chefs are fighting for a chance to even compete on the show, so think of it like the early rounds of 'American Idol.'

That may be why judge Joe Bastianich thought Albert's presentation was a joke at first. Certainly, the self-proclaimed redneck was a colorful enough character, with his camouflage shirt, wild hair and missing front tooth.

Add to that his colorful tattoos and offer to show one on his butt to Ramsay and you've got a guy tailor-made for entertainment. Even more surprising, Ramsay responded, "Yes, please." He did qualify it, though. "Not too close. Just from a distance."

Albert explained that he can cook basically anything that crawls or walks on the ground. That, apparently, was not a joke.

"This is my first experience eating a reptile," Bastianich admitted. "When I tasted it, it's delicious." He went on to describe it before giving the first of three affirmatives to Albert, which means he gets to officially join the competition.
