MasterChef Junior

MasterChef Junior goes back for seconds...and thirds! This culinary competition series gives talented kids between the ages of eight and 13 the chance to showcase their culinary abilities and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges.

Host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay is joined by restaurateur and winemaker Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot on the judging panel. Together, the celebrated food experts will coach and encourage the promising hopefuls to cook like a pro and teach them the tricks of the trade along the way.

After a nationwide search, 16 of the best junior home cooks in the country will compete in the kitchen where they will face exciting challenges, including a surprise mystery box, a three-legged race and the fan-favorite restaurant takeover, until one talented kid is named America's newest MasterChef Junior.
