Fox has announced a casting call for Season 8 of MasterChef Junior leading to intense speculation that they’ve quietly renewed Gordon Ramsay and crew before Season 7 has even aired on your television set. Season 7 is scheduled to premiere sometime in February 2019.
Previous seasons are available on the streaming service FOXNOW and HULU.
Stay tuned to RenewCancelTV.com for the latest updates on Season 7, 8, and could there possibly be a season 9??
Any child or teenager between ages eight and thirteen can apply to become a contestant on the series by applying online or by going to an open casting call. Twenty-four applicants are chosen to audition. At the auditions, the applicants are split into three groups. Twelve of the applicants become contestants for the next round and all twenty-four receive one of the MasterChef franchise’s signature aprons that they get to keep, regardless of their progress.
After the audition round, two contestants are sent home per episode. The winner receives a prize of $100,000 and the MasterChef Junior trophy.
In seasons 2–4, the contestants get their apron and the competition begins; starting from season 5, the cooks compete making dishes to get a spot in the competition and a white apron.
