Master Chef on Fox

Anyone watching the kids on Masterchef Junior?

Love the little dude in the Hawiian shirts. That clip of him chopping like a maniac cracks me up!


I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.

It's on Friday nights, but I'm sure you can find lots of reruns so you can tune in from the getgo.

Yep, Ramsey & Company judging.

One really cute episode had their kids joining in the judging.

I think it's adorable. Really have my favorites. Love the pudgy Asian girl with the big red plastic bow. OMG what a cutie, with such a zest for life. Hope she never loses that. I'm thinking of getting a big red plastic bow for myself.

And Alexander, a chubby big kid that is the clear front-runner. It's certainly possible that with his terrific personality he's one of the most popular students at his school, but I think it's more likely that he's not. And it is so wonderful that he's got this love and appreciation for cooking as his "thing." Like the dweeby violinist in the school band, you know? Somebody that's so very good at something else that you know that no matter what the other schoolkids throw his way, it ain't gonna affect him one bit. Usually, I root for the underdog, and not for the obvious front-runner. But in "Big Al" (his nickname), I'm totally on his side.

Then there's little Sarah, at only nine years old. Everybody keeps expecting her to fail because she's the youngest. But thus far, she's stuck it to 'em every time.

Here's a link to the Fox website. You can see that the judges are covered in something white. It's whipping cream. to determine the final winner from one challenge, the top three finishers had to whip cream by hand. They had to whip it to stiff peaks, stiff enough that it wouldn't fall out of the bowl when they turned it upside down. So to judge, each one of the three kids went up to stand behind one of the judges and turn the bowl over to see if the cream was whipped enough to not fall out.

As you can see, not everybody was so successful!

Thanks! It sounds great and I meant to watch it and forgot all about it. I got soured on kids and cooking by making the mistake of watching Rachael Ray and Spiky Fierri and their kids cooking show.

Those two are cringe-worthy in themselves, but the editing made it totally obvious who was going to win from the git-go.

Can't believe there wasn't more comment regarding Junior Masterchef.

One of my favorite TV bits ever took place during the cream-whipping contest (that I mentioned above).

Little 9-yr-old Sarah had a crush on Gavin, one of the three whipping contestants.

In this clip, with the three finalists whipping furiously, the other kids are rooting them on from the sidelines. You can see Little Sarah down at the end of the line, jumping up and down, and cheering on Gavin: "Come on, Gavin. Whip it! Whip like a man! I don't wanna see that arm stop moving! Whip like a man!"

I'd sure love to have the recipe for those chicken wings about which the judges were waxing so rhapsodic.

And overcooked shrimp dooms another hopeful.

Kind of sad.

But understandable.
