Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Ted Allen, CHOPPED JUNIOR: MAKE ME A JUDGE is a four-episode event series that gives young chefs from across the country a chance to compete for a seat behind the judges' table and give the CHOPPED judges a taste of their own medicine. In the three preliminary-themed heats, the 12 junior chefs compete to create unique and delectable dishes over three rounds, judged by a rotating panel of CHOPPED judges. The winner of each episode receives $10,000 and advances to the finale where they take a seat behind the judges' table. The junior judges then decide the fates of CHOPPED stars Amanda Freitag, Alex Guarnaschelli, Marcus Samuelsson and Chris Santos as the chefs serve up their dishes for a chance to earn bragging rights and $25,000 for charity.
On Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered the finale of CHOPPED JUNIOR: MAKE ME A JUDGE, immediately following an encore presentation of all three previous episodes from 5-8pm. In the finale, three Chopped Junior Champions are taking a seat at the Chopping Block, as four regular Chopped judges -- Amanda Freitag, Alex Guarnaschelli, Marcus Samuelsson and Chris Santos -- compete for $25,000 for charity. The chefs are cooking with some of the same ingredients that the kids did, but with a few shocking twists, starting with cured fish roe in the appetizer basket. The entree basket contains some familiar barbecue ingredients, and the chefs must also incorporate an elaborate gelatin creation. The dessert basket turns into an ice cream showdown, and the remaining two chefs must cook with ears!
