MasterChef Junior is a cooking competition television series that is airing on Fox. It premiered on Friday, September 27, 2013.[2] It is based on the format of the U.K. series Junior MasterChef.[3]

On March 5, 2014, MasterChef Junior was renewed for a third season, before production on season two began.[4] The second season premiered on November 4, 2014.[5] The third season premiered on January 6, 2015.[6]

Format

Children between the ages of 8 and 13 apply to become a contestant on the series. 24 applicants are chosen to audition.[3] At the auditions, the applicants are split into three groups. One group prepares seafood dishes, one prepares pasta dishes and one group prepares dessert dishes to present to the judges.[7] 12 of the applicants become contestants for the next round and all 24 receive one of the MasterChef franchise's signature aprons that they get to keep, regardless of their progress.[7]

After the audition round, two contestants are sent home per episode. The winner receives a prize of $100,000[7] and the MasterChef Junior trophy.

Cast

Like its adult counterpart, MasterChef Junior is judged by Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot.[3] Bastianich will not be returning for the show's fourth season and will be replaced by pastry chef Christina Tosi.[1]

Production

Fox placed casting calls for participants in January 2013.[8] Fox officially ordered the series (then under the name Junior MasterChef) on May 10, 2013.[9] The name was later changed to MasterChef Junior. There were concerns that Ramsay's style of cursing at the contestants on his other competition shows (most notably Hell's Kitchen and the adult MasterChef) would carry over to MasterChef Junior, but one of the contestants (named Gavin) said that Ramsay had only cursed twice during the production of the series and never at the contestants. In the final editing, he cursed once in front of the contestants, but not at them.[7]

Broadcast

The first season of MasterChef Junior premiered on September 27, 2013.[2] The second season premiered on November 4, 2014.[5] The third season premiered on January 6, 2015.[6]

Season 1 (2013)

The winner of MasterChef Junior season 1 was Alexander Weiss, a 13-year-old from New York City.
