Little Chefs with Big Skills Compete on New Series Chopped Junior Premiering on Tuesday, October 27th
October brings two new premieres to Food Network with an impossible stunt and exciting new series hosted by Ted Allen. Former Chopped champions are pushed to their limits when they return to compete in an epic four-part tournament in Chopped: Impossible, premiering on Thursday, October 22nd at 8pm ET/PT. Ted Allen presides over the Chopped: Impossible‘s premiere episode on Thursday, October 22nd at 8pm ET/PT, as competitors are given canned whipped topping to include as an unwelcome appetizer ingredient, the entrees round offers some awfully stinky cookies and when the dessert round arrives, the ingredient has teeth which will force the remaining two competitors to choose whether they will bite back or run scared.
Through three preliminary battles, Restaurant: Impossible’s Robert Irvine will command a seat on the judging panel, as twelve returning champs face some of the most mind-blowing baskets in Chopped history. Three competitors will power on to the Grand Finale, where one will win $15,000 and the chance to throw down in an impossibly daunting wild card round: against Chef Robert. If the last chef standing can beat Robert, they stand to win $25,000 more, for a total of $40,000! But they will have to achieve the impossible to take home the huge prize and be judged along the way by Chopped judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant, Amanda Freitag, Alex Guarnaschelli, Aarón Sánchez, Chris Santos and Geoffrey Zakarian.

Chopped Junior showcases the talents of girls and boys between the ages of 9 and 15 years old seeking to make unforgettable meals from the mystery ingredients under the infamous ticking clock of the Chopped kitchen. They may bring their unbridled energy, big personalities and unstoppable originality to the kitchen, but only one can be crowned Chopped Junior Champion winning the $10,000 prize.
