Selena Gomez shows off her new finds for season four of Selena + Chef.
Gomez, 30, welcomed cameras to his Malibu beach house, which will serve as the backdrop for the next season of his HBO Max cooking show.

Gomez is also sure to show off a very unique feature: her “okey-dokey pot,” which she says is where she has to drop a dollar every time she says the phrase “because it’s bad”.
While pointing to the house’s open kitchen, she explains that since it’s not the kitchen in her main house, it was “interesting to know about it”.
The “Who Says” singer then revealed the cameras that are set up around the room, including a go-pro mounted above the stove to capture whatever she’s cooking. She explains that this camera is useful when the chefs she works with are connected via video call, instead of being present in real space with it, so they can see how everything is going in real time.
The kitchen is also outfitted with plenty of studio lights which Gomez says are great for TikToks and selfies.
