Earlier tonight, Fox debuted the fourth season of their show Master Chef. During the season premiere, one hundred different home/amateur chefs attempt to impress Chefs Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich, and Graham Elliot with one signature dish. If two of the three like it, the person gets a white apron and moves on. If not, they leave.

One notable audition during the premiere was former Miami Dolphins cornerback Eddie Jackson. Jackson made a jerk meatloaf for the three chefs to try.

Jackson played for the Dolphins in 2005 and 2006. He initially entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2004 with the Carolina Panthers. With Miami, he appeared in 29 games, starting three, and recorded two passes defensed and 25 tackles. Near the end of the 2006 season, Jackson tore his ACL and was placed on injured reserve. The Dolphins did not tender him as a restricted free agent after the season.

After his time with Miami, Jackson was signed by the New England Patriots for the 2007 season, but broke his wrist three games into the season and was released. He attempted a come back the next season with the Washington Redskins, but did not make it out of training camp.

As he was being introduced on the show, the network displayed an image of Jackson from the 2005 season in his Dolphins uniform.

In case you don't want to know the results of Jackson's audition, stop reading here (aka Spoiler Alert). If you don't really care, read on.

Jackson received yes votes from two of the three judges, and will be a member of the competition show.
