Based on her resumé alone, it’s clear that Tilly Ramsay is a great choice for the judging spot on “MasterChef Junior” Season 9. And she’s in good company: Chefs Aarón Sánchez and Daphne Oz will be returning to judge this season.
In a press release, President of Unscripted Programming at FOX Entertainment, Allison Wallach, said, “Blending fun, fast-paced competition with Gordon’s undeniable soft spot for kids, ‘MasterChef Junior’ returns with a terrific new crop of young chefs ready to thrive under his invaluable mentorship.” Fans who’ve seen Tilly on the series in the past know she shares her dad’s talent for working with kids. And while she wasn’t allowed in Gordon’s Michelin-starred restaurants growing up to ensure she didn’t get spoiled, she clearly picked up plenty of culinary skills that will help her to mentor the new “MasterChef Junior” hopefuls.
According to Wallach, “Everyone at FOX and our terrific partners at Endemol Shine North America are delighted to welcome Tilly to the ‘MasterChef Junior, family!” Though Season 9’s release date hasn’t yet been announced, the series’ loyal fans are certainly excited to watch.
