TV show description:      
This non-scripted series gives budding cooks between the ages of eight and 13, the opportunity to showcase their talent, culinary smarts and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges and cook-offs.

Similar to the regular MasterChef series, chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur and winemaker Joe Bastianich, and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot man the judging panel. Together, the food experts 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, two dozen of the best junior home cooks create their best seafood, pasta or dessert dish and present it to the judges in the audition round. Those who impress the judges continue in the competition where they face exciting challenges — including taking over a celebrated fine restaurant.

At the end of the season, one talented kid is named America’s Junior MasterChef.

    Why didn’t they just make andrews dish for him, nothing like getting a last minute advantage no one but him got. Jimmy should be in the finals

    Gordon needs to revamp with more winnings for a 3rd and 2nd place runners up for they receive nothing for being a 3rd or 2nd place runner ups. We are talking about children and not adults and the disappointment can psychology impact these your children with feeling they are not good enough. They should get more than an apron to take home.
    3rd Place winner should get a $25,000 dollar check.
    2nd place winner should get a $50,000 dollar check and a scholarship to a cooking school when he/she is old enough / Gordon Ramsey’s Culinary School.
    1st Place winner should get $100,000 and the trophy.
    The show is great ! I watch it and am amazed how well they cook, I am a bit jealous ! Gordon and the network needs to add something for the 2 runner – ups on this show, Gordon runs from studio to studio and works none stop 365 days a year, producing, hosting, filming , traveling including running his restaurants, he can afford to introduce this change to the program for the 2 runners up due to their age should have to walk away with just a $20.00 Apron. After all these are children and are very sensitive about the competition , if they do not win, which can cause a impact as they become adults.

    Master Chef Junior is education at its best. I taught for 22 years, and kids learn best what they have a passion for. This show needs to be continued!
