Attention NYC and Chicago: MasterChef Junior Season 2 Casting Tomorrow


MasterChef’s precocious, heartwarming little sister MasterChef Junior is currently casting its second season in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Dallas, so if you have a mini-Bocuse with too much energy underfoot in the kitchen, feel free to go make casting deal with them for a Saturday! It’s like free babysitting but with the reward of ending up in years of therapy for early exposure to media and Gordon Ramsay instead! Doesn’t that sound like an awesome thing to do with your kid for a weekend? Press release with more info in its entirety below:


MasterChef is on a nationwide search for the most talented young home cooks in America between the ages of 8-13 as of March 10, 2014. The winner will receive a cash prize and the title of MasterChef Junior.
