A cooking competition reality TV show for kids is back on air – and former First Lady Michelle Obama will be one of the rotating guest judges.
The Fox show, “MasterChef Junior” returned to the airwaves Thursday for its fifth season, where children between the ages of 8 and 13 learn to cook.
Unlike adult competitions, the children’s show is reportedly void of drama, rivalry or competition.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the rotation of guest judges include Martha Stewart, Michelle Obama, and the Muppets.
Gordan Ramsay, the series’ host, said of the kids competing on the show, “They enjoy the pressure, and when they show me the commitment, my job is to get them better. They’re resilient, robust, and all I try to tell them is that this journey is a little bit like life: ‘In 10 years’ time you’re going to go up, you’re going to go down, and this is a rehearsal. Get this one right, you’ll be able to overcome a lot of obstacles.’”
