Judges Chef Gordon Ramsay and Chef Christina Tosi welcomed the latest crop of junior home cooks to the MasterChef Junior kitchen. Shayne Wells, from Klein, was there to compete for the MasterChef Junior trophy and the $100,000 grand prize. After a nationwide search, 40 of the best junior home cooks between the ages of eight and thirteen have been chosen for their final test – a culinary battle in the MasterChef Junior kitchen in front of Chefs Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi. Only the 20 best chef-testants who prove they have the chops to take home the trophy will move forward and earn a MasterChef Junior white apron. This season, the kids will face exciting challenges, including completing a challenge from First Lady Michelle Obama; cooking a meal for more than 50 first responders; MasterChef Junior’s first-ever vegan challenge, from guest judge Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory); and cooking for other VIPs, including Julie Bowen (Modern Family) and Muppets “Miss Piggy” and “Swedish Chef,” until one talented kid is named America’s next MasterChef Junior, taking home the MasterChef Junior trophy and $100,000 grand prize. In the season premiere episode, “The Quest for an Apron Part 1,” 40 junior home cooks, including Shayne Wells, headed to Los Angeles ready to compete for a MasterChef Junior apron. In each culinary showdown, four chefs receive a unique challenge – from steak, to scallops to cupcakes. Two lucky winners from each group earn an apron and a chance to move on, while two head back home. The competition is tougher than ever as Gordon and Christina separate the best junior chefs from all the rest.
