Plot Synopsis

TOP ELF is a one-hour elimination competition series during which seven kid elf-testants with extraordinary building and design skills compete in festive challenges to become Santa's Top Elf and have their wish lists granted -- not for themselves, but for good causes in their hometowns. Santa and Ms. Jingles invite seven civilian elf-testants to the North Pole to test their skills in a series of holiday-themed challenges, from designing their own life-sized gingerbread clubhouses, to reimagining Santa's sleigh, to creating giant 3-D holiday cards. And of course, building new toys. To help bring their visions to life, each elf-testant is paired with one of Santa's elves: Chip Snuggles, Nog Shimmerhorn, Ginger O'Tingleton, Merry Sparkleberry, Tinsel Turtledove, Zippy Twinkles, and Stretch McDancerpants. At the end of each episode, elf-testants are judged by Santa, Ms. Jingles and a celebrity guest to decide who is on the "nice" or "naughty" list and one step closer to being named Top Elf. Celebrity guest judges helping Santa and Ms. Jingles find the Top Elf are: Frankie Grande, Amirah Kassem, Peyton List, Alex Wassabi and Pete Wentz. The seven elf-testants competing this season are: Aiko from New York; Allison from Walnut, CA; Briana from Los Angeles, CA; Cameron from Georgetown, KY; Hopper from Highland Park, TX; Hud from Oxford, MS; and Justice from Jamaica, NY.
On Saturday, December 21, 2019 at 7pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon premiered the season finale of TOP ELF. The holidays go high-tech as Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy joins Santa and Ms. Jingles to judge the final three elf-testants' last challenge: Santa's Sleigh Makeover.
