With the end of the NBA and NHL seasons, there isn’t much game action to watch on weeknight TV (other than regular season MLB games) for the next few months. That means a lot of shitty reality TV.

MasterChef, the Fox reality show competition featuring Gordon Ramsay and other known foodies pissing on the dreams of aspiring chefs, is a rare exception to the network drivel, maybe because Ramsay always seems like a deranged manager of a soccer team. The 11th episode of Season 4 airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. (ET).

Among the contestants this season is Jessie Lysiak. The model-turned-chef is the daughter of former NHL All-Star Tom Lysiak, who was arguably the best player in the history of Atlanta hockey before being traded to the Chicago Blackhawks during the 1978-79 season. Lysiak was once suspended for 20 games after intentionally upending a linesman after a face-off. That’s pretty bad-ass.

Jessie Lyisak inherited her dad’s toughness; she cut the hell out of her finger on last week’s show and stayed in the competition.

She obviously didn’t get her looks from her dad, though:
