There are only two possible reasons for the scene MasterChef finalist Josh Marks made in Chicago this week, when he assaulted cops and said that Gordon Ramsay 'possessed him' and turned him into 'God' — especially when we know that there were NO drugs in his system.
1. Josh has a mental illness.
2. Josh is telling the truth.
Since we're pretty sure Gordon can't possess anyone, or turn them into God, we're going to have to go with #1 — and we're very glad that Josh is currently being evaluated to understand what's happening with his mental state.
Here's what Josh's attorney said:
“We are working closely with medical professionals to determine if Josh's behavior could be related to mental health symptoms. The Josh that you are hearing about in police reports this morning is not the spirited Gentle Giant that we know.”
From what we've seen of Josh on MasterChef, we would have never ever guessed something like this was in him, so it really does sound like some sort of mental breakdown to us. We just hope he can get the kind of care and treatment he needs, because nobody should ever take mental health lightly.
We even hear that multiple sources close to Josh believe he has bipolar disorder, with fellow contestant Tali Clavijo saying this:
"Josh was two different people … He seemed to always be a party guy, but he had this other side trying to be good. He had split personalities."
For his own safety and the safety of others, Josh is still in the hospital on lockdown. With all the charges right now, he could be facing up to 14 years in prison.
We really hope they find out what's going on here!
