    The best competition show on television stars 11-year-olds.... Like the Scripps National Spelling Bee, MasterChef Junior is a celebration of talent, precocity, merit, obsession, and, above all, losing.

    The result is a family-friend mixture of competition series suspense and a genuine desire to see the kids succeed. Though there are a few eye roll-worthy moments from some ("I believe I have a very sophisticated palette," one boy says), others are delightfully able to keep up with Ramsay's quips.

    The show’s assemblage of pint-sized personalities demonstrates enough natural charm to sustain a season and potentially give both Fox and Ramsay another reliable reality franchise.

One thing I noticed was that there's no swearing (unlike regular Masterchef and Hell's Kitchen). Also, the "young home cooks" are almost as good (if not better) than their adult counterparts! These are 8-13 year olds we're talking about here! As I predicted, Alexander became America's first Junior Masterchef winner!
