Budding Young Chefs Compete in First-Ever Chopped Teen Tournament

by in Shows, June 5th, 2014

Chopped Teen TournamentFor the very first time on Chopped, 16 teens will enter the kitchen in the Chopped Teen Tournament, premiering Tuesday, July 15 at 10|9c. These talented youngsters bring energy and ambition to the table, to compete for $25,000 in prize money and a coveted culinary school scholarship. They’ll face appetizer, entree and dessert basket ingredients that could stump even the most-experienced adult chef. And just because they’re kids doesn’t mean they’ll be judged any differently.

A rotating panel of judges — Amanda Freitag, Alex Guarnaschelli, Marc Murphy, Chris Santos, Geoffrey Zakarian and special guest judge Alex Stupak — will determine who gets chopped. The winner from each of the four preliminary rounds will go on to the finale on Tuesday, August 12. In the finale, the fifth and final round, only one competitor will be named the first-ever Chopped Teen Grand Champion.

And after the premiere episode, on July 15, watch an all-new episode of the exclusive Web series Chopped After Hours. Judges Amanda Freitag, Aarón Sánchez and Scott Conant will tackle the appetizer basket ingredients from the first round of the tournament.

Watch an Exclusive Preview Below:


Tune in Tuesday, July 15 at 10|9c for the premiere of the Chopped Teen Tournament, and continue watching Chopped After Hours online.

    CONGRATULATIONS TOMMI RAE! I wished for you to win from the beginning and my three children did too. My oldest daughter who is 8.5 said to me "Mom, I really hope she wins, she's nice" Go get 'em girl. The future is yours, shine!
