Lexy Rogers Biography – Lexy Rogers Wiki
Lexy Rogers is a stay-at-home mom from Zion, Illinois, and a contestant on the 11th season of “MasterChef: Legends,” on Fox, competing for $250,000 by creating dishes for acclaimed chefs and judges Gordon Ramsey, Aaron Sanchez, and Joe Bastianich.
Lexy Rogers MasterChef: Legends
Kenosha resident Lexy Rogers is competing on the 11th season of Fox’s “MasterChef: Legends.” Rogers told Kenosha News a friend sent the home cook a flyer about a Chicago casting call for “MasterChef,” and she surprised herself by signing up.
On her first episode, Rogers had to prepare a dish for the show’s three resident judges — host Gordon Ramsay, chef Aarón Sánchez and restaurateur Joe Bastianich — with her family standing next to her.
To earn one of the show’s famous white aprons and enter the competition, Rogers prepared a hamburger stuffed with goat cheese, with a side of roasted Brussels sprouts, for the judges, including guest judge Paula Deen.
She was a fan of the show before competing on it. She credits her aunt, Lovie Goshay, for inspiring her to cook.
“My aunt went to culinary school and has a catering business,” Rogers said. “But more than that, she just puts so much love on a plate. Dinnertime for her is when she shows you how she loves you. I took that on, too.”
Before filming the show, Rogers practiced cooking under pressure. “I made sure my family was in the kitchen all the time with me, and I even had my husband film me and ask questions while I was cooking. You have to be able to focus on your dish with everything going on around you.”
Rogers hopes the “MasterChef” experience will help her fulfill her culinary dreams.
“My husband is in the military, and we travel so often, I can’t open a restaurant right now,” she said. “I’m hoping to put this on my resume, that I cooked for these legends and they liked my food. Maybe I can open a food truck or teach some online classes. I’d love to teach people how to love cooking.”
Her advice to aspiring cooks is “to just keep cooking. I used to be afraid to try different things and recipes, but then I just realized I can be bold and creative. Don’t be afraid of your own creativity.”

Lexy Rogers Children
Lexy and her husband, Lewis Rogers, have two children: Lena and Luke. In January 2021, Rogers wrote about her experience being a mom. She wrote in an Instagram post: “It’s a consistent up and down. One day being a mom is the best thing in the world, and the next I’m watching my used-to-be friends live what I imagined would be my life and sit and think have I now wasted my 20’s, my prime?
“It’s constant, the up and downs. So much so that I start to feel guilty, start to question my love for my children, while punishing the image in the mirror for not looking like what she once did. How can I teach my daughters self love when the concept seems so far from me. My jeans don’t fit, my toned abs replaced with more stretch marks than I can count. “You’ll bounce back” “you’ll get your body back” words that should be uplifting tear me down further. The truth is, I won’t get my body back. The best truth is that I shouldn’t feel I’m supposed to. The up and downs are still constant but what I need to tell myself is that my body created life, three times over. My body is still sustaining not only myself but my infants’ as well. The process of giving birth three times changed me. I’ve grown and endured more than I knew I could. And if I have changed, my body should reflect that also.”
