If your kiddo idolizes Giada or wants to be Bobby Flay when he or she grows up, this news is for you: Chopped Junior is casting for Season 4! JS Casting is looking for kids ages 9-14 to compete in the culinary reality series.
Everything you love about Chopped (the mystery baskets, the challenges, the host) is the same for Chopped Junior… just pint-sized. Even the pantry was ‘miniaturized’ so kids could reach things from lower heights and each station has step stool.
It’s definitely for — shall we say — the adventurous future Thomas Keller. In the Season 2 opener, competitors were challenged with cooking rock fish and beef tongue. In a timed setting.
Did we mention the winner walks away with $10,000? In Season 1, Bryce Taylor (12-year-old from Mount Washington) came in second place!
You’ll find the basic application here. It will ask for photos of your child, what makes them one of the most talented mini-culinary masters in the US, provides an option to submit video links, and gives you can option to submit up to three photos of your child’s food.
