If Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich, and Graham Elliot hanging out with a bunch of precocious kids is your idea of a good time, you'll love the upcoming premiere of MasterChef Junior. A preview below shows it's just like regular MasterChef, but with children. There are a lot of comments along the lines of "This is probably the best molten lava cake we've had on MasterChef and you're nine years old" and "There are pastry chefs twice as old as you wishing they could cook as good as you." (There is also a tiny spitfire who's bound for the Young Guns class of 2022 screaming things like "WHIP IT! WHIP IT LIKE A MAN" at her teammates.) According to the AP, what you're really wondering is whether or not Gordon Ramsay swears in front of the kids, and the answer is either no (according to Ramsay) or twice (according to a ten-year-old named Gavin). Below, a preview of the show; MasterChef Junior premieres September 27 on Fox.
