Graham Elliot Announces He’s Leaving ‘MasterChef’ and ‘MasterChef Junior’

TV personality and chef Graham Elliot announced on Twitter that he'll leave MasterChef and MasterChef Junior next year to move on to other ventures. Elliot has been a part of MasterChef since 2010, and MasterChef Junior since its inception in 2013. He follows in the footsteps of former host Joe Bastianich who left MasterChef last year. Fox has yet to announce a replacement for Elliot, but will likely do so in early 2016.

Trader Joe’s Introduces Artisan Bread Pretzel Croissants

Just in time for Christmas, leaders with Trader Joe’s introduce Artisan Bread Pretzel Croissants.

Netflix Has Devised Special Socks That Pause Your Show When You Fall Asleep

Leaders with Netflix introduce Netflix Socks, the perfect addition to your next Netflix marathon. Netflix Socks is another DIY project devised by Netflix, which automatically pauses the show when the user falls asleep. So now, spoilers and trying to remember where you dozed off will be a thing of the past. For this DIY project, you will need some knitting skills and technology skills. You can get around the knitting component by using a pair of socks you already own, however Netflix offers a variety of sock patterns inspired by popular shows. They include a pair featuring a glass of pinot noir for fans of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (or fans of sipping this wine during Netflix marathons), a sushi roll for fans of Chef’s Table, and a slice of pie for Orange Is the New Black fans.
