MasterChef Junior is back for its ninth season with 12 young contestants, aged 8 to 11, competing for the title, a trophy, and $100,000. Gordon Ramsay returns as host and judge, joined by chef Aarón Sánchez and author Daphne Oz. New this season is Gordon’s daughter, Tilly Ramsay, who previously appeared in Season 8 for a donut challenge, now stepping in as the fourth judge and mentor.

Despite their small size, these junior home cooks will face the same challenges as the adults on MasterChef, including Mystery Box challenges, restaurant takeovers, and barbecues. The show, known for blending fun, fast-paced competition with Gordon’s soft spot for kids, will air soon on FOX following its renewal. MasterChef Junior promises a terrific new crop of young chefs ready to thrive under Gordon's invaluable mentorship.

L-R: Host/judge Gordon Ramsay, and mentor/judge Tilly Ramsey.
