Masterchef Junior has become a success and now we’re in the third season of the reality competition show, with the premiere airing on FOX, January 6, 2015. Before we meet all the contestants below, here’s some info on what to expect in the premiere and with the judges.
The premiere episode is titled “Mystery Box Challenge” and the synopsis of it reads:
The season starts off with the judges welcoming season two winner Logan back and having him meet the new contestants. Logan shows the new kids 11 dishes he made from the mystery box ingredents, because he won the show when he was 11. The kids were given one hour to make a restaurant quality dish. One contestant (who is unable to taste) is eliminated from MasterChef Junior.
The second episode is titled “Easy as Pie” and the challenge is this:
Three of the junior cooks race to be the first to top their pies with whipped meringue; the cooks pair up to create sausage dishes.
