“Mental Samurai,” a new competition series that pushes every aspect of human intelligence and mental agility, debuts Tuesday, March 5 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on FOX. Hosted and produced by Rob Lowe, from A. Smith & Co. Productions, Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television and Apploff Entertainment, the show is the first-ever obstacle course ... for the mind.

Each episode of “Mental Samurai” is an epic television event, as contestants battle the boundaries of their minds to answer questions accurately with speed and precision. Not only does the course test their acumen in categories of knowledge, memory, puzzles and sequencing, but players will also have to contend with being physically transported around the set at high speeds in a specially designed capsule capable of rotating 360 degrees. In “Mental Samurai,” people from all walks of life will compete, and underdogs will triumph, in the game that anyone can play, and almost no one can win.

“Mental Samurai” follows the return of hit culinary competition series “MasterChef Junior” (8 p.m. ET/PT). Entering its seventh season, the series gives talented kids between the ages of 8 and 13 the chance to showcase their culinary abilities and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges. Award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay and renowned pastry chef Christina Tosi will be joined by celebrated chef and restaurateur Aarón Sánchez on the judges’ panel.

Season Seven will showcase a mystery box challenge focusing on the most important meal of the day: breakfast. Additionally, the young chef-testants will attend and prepare a meal for 51 circus performers, create a restaurant-quality fish dish, compete to see which team can first roll out a perfect sheet of pasta to 24 feet, and power through the fan-favorite restaurant takeover challenge, until one talented kid is named America’s newest “MasterChef Junior” winner, taking home the “MasterChef Junior” trophy and $100,000 grand prize.
