MasterChef Junior Casting Season 2

Hey kids!  Always dreamed of being on a Gordon Ramsay reality cooking show?  Do you have no formal restaurant experience and can you barely reach the counters of your home kitchen?  Good news: MasterChef Junior is casting for its second season and you (or your 8-13 year old child) could be on it.

On Saturday, January 18, open calls will be held in New York and Chicago, and on Saturday, January 25, they'll be held in Los Angeles and Dallas.  Callbacks will be scheduled 1-3 days after the open call.

Adults must fill out this application before the audition and children must have an apron. Or in the words of the official casting website: 'PLEASE JUST BRING AN APRON.'  (Air mattresses, animals, fireworks, hair dryers, illegal drugs, and weapons are all forbidden at the site, so don't bring those).

If you can't make the call times, there's also the option to send in a 5-10 minute home video by January 24. Potential contestants will introduce judges to their home, family, and lifestyle as well as include a kitchen tour and cooking demonstration, complete with the plating of a signature dish.

The show will film from March 10 – May 2, which is even better news for those who have been deprived of cute and quirky kitchen antics since MasterChef Junior's first season's finale last month.

Good luck to the new potential cast, and don't forget your apron!
