I'm obsessed with this show. Already I happened to skew on the side of "Gordon Ramsay is my idol," so the idea of doing Masterchef with young contestants immediately struck me as a brilliant idea. I did see, however, why some worried about pairing a certain chef, known for yelling "f**k" and making home-cooks cry, with kids aged 8-13. But, I was optimistic. And I think now that the second season has come to a close, any of the initial nay-sayers have been convinced of the genius that is this show, as well!

It really is a superb show. The kids are incredible. They say things like "sriracha foam" (lol, wut?) that put my toast-making skills to shame. And they are incredibly supportive of one another, building each other up, and enjoying the healthy competition. We also get to see another side of the judges - Gordon doling out hugs like they're nothing but a thang, Joe picking up little kids left and right, and Graham giggling at all the crazy things 8-13 year olds are inevitably going to say on tv. Though lets face it, Graham was the nice one to start with…

Anyway, Masterchef Junior has totally hit the nail on the head, and I will certainly be following it for the seasons to come!

Okay but I wish the judges were a little less parental and a little more like real judges! Be MEAN!

I love cooking. Seeing kids make amazing things I couldn't even dream of making might be frustrating, but it also gives hope for future revolutionary food inventions. I like how Ramsay is with the kids and just the show as a whole is fun to watch.

I do not watch the adult American version of Masterchef. (Too much in-fighting). I enjoy watching these youngsters, reaching for their goals. They are entertaining, and respectful to one another. Seems to bring out a softer side of the judges, as well.

Too much cuteness! The kids are so sweet and helpful to one another and I love seeing dad-Gordon instead of yelling-Gordon.

This is totally BS, as a chef I feel completely offended with this show, KIDS??? Never they make those dishes, even thou they have tons of creativity, because they are kids, they never had any real experience in a kitchen, if you guys thing you can chop perfect cubes with plastic knifes, get real. This show is intended for parents that think kids in the kitchen with heat, sharp knifes and hot boiling water is fun. Real complicated to see anything real here. Just entertainment and fiction.
