MasterChef Junior Renewed, Adds New Judge for Season 4

MasterChef Junior Season 4 Renewal Fox

Ignoring the tears of kiddie cooks whose soufflés just don’t pass muster, Fox has renewed MasterChef Junior for a fourth season.

Production on the Gordon Ramsay-fronted cooking-competition-for-the-Nickelodeon-set’s Season 4 will begin this spring. Season 3 currently airs Tuesdays at 8/7c.

The network also announced that Christina Tosi, pastry chef and founder of New York City’s Milk Bar, will join Ramsay and Graham Elliot on the MasterChef and MasterChef Junior judging panels.

“Christina is one of the most exciting, dynamic and inspirational people in food today, whose brilliant ideas and incredible work ethic have resulted in a meteoric rise in the culinary world,” Ramsay said in a statement. “I have tremendous respect for her opinions, and she’ll be an incredible judge and phenomenal mentor to the best home cooks in America.”

    Yay!! I love that show! Those kids are great — not only amazing chefs but wonderfully supportive of each other; they cheer when one does well, urges them on from above while they’re working, comforts them when things go wrong and/or they have to leave and the judges are amazingly supportive of the kids; I’ve never watched Hell’s KItchen –only know Gordon Ramsey’s , but pwople who only know him from his show wouldn’t recognize him; apparently he has children (and maybe grandchildren by this time?) of his own, so he’s kind and gentle and supportive and encouraging. The other judges, too, are wonderfully considerate. And sometimes in addition, to the tears, there’s some humor — not only like when they poured syrup and stuff on the judges, but when thw kids say something unexpected, e.g., at one point Gordon said … I can’t remember exactly, but he used an “f”adjective for food, but the girl reprimanded him. “What?” I said F for food — but she knew his reputation for using the other “f” word at times. and called him out. It was funny.

  5. Season 4???
    They’re gonna do 3 seasons in a row???
    Wow how many kids in America know how to cook???

  6. I love this show!!! FOX has a winner with this one. A good future challenge for the kids would be to have each child write down a favorite dish they like to prepare. During a contest each child would draw from all the favorites and prepare that dish. May be their own, may not. :)

    This is a great family show. My kids love it and are inspired by the drive and good attitudes these young competitors have. This show is a keeper
