“Junior Edition: Tag Team” (04/20/17) – “MasterChef” welcomes guest judge Chef Edward Lee…and the contestants’ families! In the season’s first mystery box challenge, the junior home cooks must prepare a delicious dish of their choice, inspired by their families.

Then, in the next challenge, the young cooks team up in pairs to replicate a sushi platter and the judges will decide which two kids will go home in an all-new episode of “MasterChef Junior” airing Thursday, April 20 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

After a nationwide search, 40 of the best junior home cooks in the country will compete in the “MasterChef Junior” kitchen, where they will face exciting challenges, such as a beach club pop-up restaurant, and surprise celebrity guests and diners, including world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck and the return of the Muppets.

One talented kid will be named America’s newest “MasterChef Junior,” and take home the “MasterChef Junior” trophy and $100,000 grand prize.

“MasterChef Junior” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Endemol Shine. Elisabeth Murdoch, Eden Gaha, Robin Ashbrook, Gordon Ramsay, Adeline Ramage Rooney, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler serve as executive producers.
