From the previews and teases that were dropped on social media it seems Chef Gordon Ramsay becomes more and more comfortable being on camera with the junior chefs. As he does we delight in seeing the fun and silly, as well as, the more serious mentoring side of Chef.
Of course, one of our all time favorite Master Chef Junior winners is Junior Chef Logan from Season Two. Check out our Twitter interview with Logan.
There are twenty-four contestants from 12 states. The young chefs range in age from 8 year old Kya @chefkya from San Marino, CA and Ian Marcel Sander @chefianmarcel to 4 contestants who are 12 years old: Corey @JrChefCorey; JJ @ChefJJ_TX; Tae-Ho and Zac Kara @zac_kara.
