Thursday, Nov. 22, on FOX
Celebrity Competitors Include Terrence Howard, Eric Stonestreet, Lil Rel Howery, Alyson Hannigan, Jerry Rice & Emmitt Smith; winner of each battle earns a $25,000 donation to charity of choice
This Thanksgiving, "MasterChef Junior" gives fans something to be thankful for, when multi-Michelin star Chef Gordon Ramsay and award-winning chef Aarón Sánchez invite celebrities, their kids and some fan-favorite alumni into the "MasterChef Junior" kitchen, where they'll show off their culinary skills in exciting contests for charity on the all-new "MasterChef Junior: Celebrity Showdown." The special airs Thanksgiving night, Thursday, Nov. 22 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on FOX, immediately following "NFL on FOX," in which the Dallas Cowboys face the Washington Redskins.
In between these epic battles in the "MasterChef Junior" kitchen, host Ramsay will chat with lifestyle expert, businesswoman and TV personality Martha Stewart to swap holiday-themed recipes for the whole family to enjoy.
The two-hour special features three unique battles, putting each celebrity competitor to the test - with more than bragging rights at stake - the winners earn donations to the charities of their choice. Additionally, the contestants will face their challenges with a sous chef by their sides, whether it be one of their own children or former "MasterChef Junior" contestants.
Here are the "MasterChef Junior" match-ups:
•Eric Stonestreet and "MasterChef Junior" season five contestant Shayne vs. Terrence Howard and "MCJ" season six finalist Avery.
In a holiday-themed "Mystery Box Challenge," these two TV dads will battle it out with help from some "MCJ" kids. "Empire" star Howard (@terrencehoward) pairs up with Avery while "Modern Family's" Stonestreet teams with Shayne to cook.
•Alyson Hannigan and her daughter, Saty, vs. Lil Rel Howery and his daughter, Brittni.
It's a parent-child tag-team challenge! TV star Hannigan (@alydenisof), of "How I Met Your Mother," cooks with her 9-year-old daughter, Saty, while star of FOX's "Rel," Lil Rel Howery, partners up with his daughter, Brittni (age 9).
•NFL Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith and "MCJ" season six winner Beni vs. NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice and "MCJ" season four winner Addison.
From going head-to-head on the field to making plays in the kitchen, two NFL legends see who will come out on top in this cooking matchup. Smith (@EmmittSmith22), formerly of the Dallas Cowboys, gets an assist from the most recent winner of "MCJ," 11-year-old Beni. Rice (@JerryRice), who played for the San Francisco 49ers, will be teamed up with "MCJ" season four winner, 13-year-old Addison.
