Wow. What a season. It was predictable from the beginning that two girls would wind up at the end together. And as it is, it was Avery vs. Addison. The two A girls faced off.
In the end, it was Addison who won by a hair against Avery in perhaps the best ever MasterChef Jr. episode ever.
The chef report card:
Alexander: All I’m going to say is Alexander got screwed. He should not have gone home. His dish was better than Ian’s. His bandanna was fantastic. Also a good character as well. C+
Cade: No doubt the worst dish of the season, deserved to go home first, not a bad character all round. Worst chef of the season. F.
Annabelle: After episode one, people could have seen her as a power player this season and then she flamed out. D
Chad: Who? N/A
Vivian: Not that bad. Underrated. She was good in the first episode. Then she almost goes home episode two and she finally goes home episode three. C+
Kyndall: Great character, but not a good chef. C-
Jaeclyn: That hat is all anyone will remember of her. Somewhat useless. E
Adam: Who? N/A
Derek: Had no shot at all. E-
Nate: The mad scientist himself, good character, had a great shot to win but winds up as an early boot. Would’ve won another season. Still crying he didn’t make top ten, very underrated. B-
Mia: Not too bad, but she was a good chef in the season, in any other season, could have won. C+
Tae-Ho: Great chef, underrated as well. He was a good character. B-
Ian: Not a good chef at all, should have gone home episode one, but he was a fantastic character. C
Jesse: Great character, and he was great with desserts. B
Corey: Was only visible when he was any good or in danger. Not great, somewhat overrated. D+
Kaitlyn: I said most of the chefs before were underrated, but Kaitlyn was the most underrated chef this season. A-
Kamilly: Not a bad chef, but she was not great. C+
Sam: That mohawk! He turned down a job with Christina, the boy has guts. B+
Kya: The best chef who didn’t get to the end of the season. Easily could have won. Maybe the fan favorite. Got screwed in the final six. A
JJ: Who? N/A
Amaya: Somewhat annoying and wasn’t that bad or that good. C+
Zac: Invisible in the middle of the season, but could have won it all. B+
Avery: Laughs galore, great chef, candidate for fan favorite of the season, easily could have, and maybe should have won. A+
Addison: Brilliant character, dare I say it, a predictable winner (I picked her as my winner episode one) https://tvbookfilmreviewers.wordpress.com/2015/11/07/masterchef-junior-season-4-preview-or-premiere-recap/. Massive downfall at final eight, until the finale and she cut her finger and made the huge comeback. A+
My post-episode one predictions:
Also had a good shot: Sam, Avery, Zac, Mia, Jesse.
No Shot: Ian, Adam
Favorites: Avery, Addison, Mia
Mostly right. Mia was boring. Updated: Avery, Addison, Kya.
Final Season Questions:
BEST COOK: Avery or Addison
WORST COOK: Cade
MOST UNDERRATED COOK: Kaitlyn or Kya
FUNNIEST MOMENT: The marshmallow shower
BEST CHARACTER: Avery
MOST SCREWED: Alexander and Kya
BEST EPISODE: Finale
WORST EPISODE: Final Six
WORST PART OF SEASON: Addison was the predictable winner.
BEST CHALLENGE: The croquembouche. I will say, that it should be a challenge in any version, any season. Also the child cookbook challenge.
That’s it. The fourth MasterChef Jr. season is finally over. I will be back for MasterChef Canada 3
