The show takes back us to our childhood. The super hit competition gives a platform to kids to showcase their culinary skills. The kids participating in the show should be in the age group of 8 to 13. They present their knowledge and passion for food and cooking by preparing healthy and yummy delicacies on the show on their own.
The Jury of the show names some amazing personalities in the arena. One is renowned Chef Gordon Ramsay and the other is the famous pastry chef Christina Tosi. These two revered personalities judge the kids on the basis of the dishes prepared by them. They give them guidance and supports and help them with hot shot cooking tricks through out the show.
Twenty-four applicants from various regions are chosen to audition. At the auditions, the applicants are split into three groups. Twelve of the applicants become contestants for the next round and all twenty-four receive one of the MasterChef franchise’s signature aprons that they get to keep, regardless of their progress.
After a thorough series of tests the best 40 talents are selected to appear on the Masterchef Junior Kitchen. Here they meet exciting challenges and also get a chance to meet certain elite faces who make surprise visits on the show.
Now these 40 kids contest against each other and on the basis of their performances get points. The judges eliminate 2 contestants in each episode. Towards the end the two finalists compete on one on one basis and the one winning the title receives a prize of $100,000 and the MasterChef Junior trophy.
