Right on the heels of the conclusion of “MasterChef” Season 6, Fox has announced the premiere of “MasterChef Junior.” The Season 4 of the kiddie spin-off version of the highly popular cooking competition will premiere on Nov. 6.
Fox shared a promo video of the upcoming season. Christina Tosi, who will be judging “MasterChef Junior” for the first time this season, is seen gushing over the cuteness of the contestants.

Meanwhile, judge Gordon Ramsay, who is often highly critical of the contestants in the adult version of the show, is clearly amazed at some of the contestants’ creations. He is seen asking one 9-year-old her age as he tastes her dish.
Season 4 of “MasterChef Junior” will have 24 young home cooks battling it out for the title. Their ages range from 9 to 12 years, and like previous seasons of “MasterChef,” they have been auditioned from all over America.
This week, the adults just concluded Season 6 of “MasterChef.” California mom Claudia Sandoval won the competition over crowd favorite Derrick Peltz. In the two-hour season finale, Peltz edged into the final round first, leaving Sandoval and Stephen Lee to battle it out in the pressure test.
In the final round, Sandoval and Peltz cooked in front of their loved ones and impressed the judges with their three-course meals. In the end, Sandoval took home the trophy, the $250,000 grand prize and a cookbook deal.
“MasterChef Junior” is set to start Nov. 6 at 8:00 p.m. EDT on Fox.
