Milwaukee firefighter competes for coveted white apron on FOX’s MasterChef

MILWAUKEE -- Things are heating up in the kitchen as season 7 of MasterChef on FOX kicks of Wednesday night, June 1st. A Milwaukee firefighter is among those competing for one of the coveted white aprons -- he joins FOX6 WakeUp to tell us about this season.

Frederick Coleman is going head to head against three other firefighters — two from New York City and the third from Orlando, Florida.

If Coleman’s name sounds familiar to you, that might be because FOX6 News profiled him back in July 2015. This, after he suffered a bullet graze wound to the head while responding to a medical call. Coleman didn’t even realize he had been injured until after he took care of his patient.

Watch for Coleman as he competes on MasterChef only on FOX6, Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
