MasterChef Junior has proven itself to be the little show with a big bite – so big, we’ve picked it up for a third season,” said Simon Andreae, Fox’s reality TV boss, in a release. “It’s incredible to see how unbelievably creative and skilled kids can be in the kitchen — some before they’ve even learned how to spell what they’re cooking.”

The spinoff of the network’s MasterChef series focuses on children between the ages of eight and 13 tackling culinary challenges judged by host/executive producer Gordon Ramsay, along with Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot.

MasterChef Junior‘s first season aired last fall.

    Totally turned off by the Master Chef game. The adult version is way too scripted for me. The children’s version hires actors to play the roles of the villains. Master Chef lost me last summer with all its shenanigans.

    That’s great to hear! Absolutely loved watching these kids prepare difficult recipes with success. Very inspiring

  3. Et al says:

    I can’t wait for Fox to announce the air dates! Then pull it without explanation! Then announce a different premiere date a week before it starts!

    I have never heard that they hire actors for the kids version. Did u read this somewhere or are u just guessing

    • Name This Tune says:

      Not a guess. Many were recognized by the viewers of the show who saw them in commercials all over the place. Plus some of the parents can’t keep quiet.

    My children and I enjoy the show whether it’s fake or not. Better than watching teenagers have babies, ppl fight, and theKardashians.

  6. Kathryn says:

    I absolutely loved the show! The kids are amazing and I was so inspired by each and every one of them. I can’t wait for this next season to start!! I hope Fox has lots and lots of seasons for this show! It is a thousand times better than all the other sleepy junk on tv now!

  7. These kids are much better than any of the “adult contestants” on Hell’s Kitchen!
