Tonight is the 2018 premiere of Masterchef Junior, which enters its 6th season with a whole new batch of young and talented contestants. Along with judges Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi, former judge Joe Bastianich has also returned to the show, according to Buddy TV. This means that Graham Elliot, who served two seasons on the show, is not a cast member this season. But, you never know if he’ll show up as a guest judge. We’ll just have to see.
Season 6 brings together 40 girls and boys between the ages of 8 and 13, who will be narrowed down to 12 boys and 12 girls to compete. But, there will be only one winner who can take home the trophy, along with $100,000. Buddy TV has reported that some of the challenges this season include a mystery box with 26 ingredients, a test representing individual family heritages, meal preparation for a wedding reception, a Blue Apron mystery box challenge, and a pop-up restaurant challenge.
