Any MasterChef Junior fans? A Spoede Elementary student has become a TV star! Fourth grader Juelz Bugg made the top 24 chefs for Season 6! The season premiere of the show aired on Friday, March 2, at 8 p.m. on FOX, during which the top 40 chefs, ages 8 to 12, competed in their first elimination round for the top 24 slots.

In the two-hour premiere, the girls were asked to create a perfect medium-rare filet mignon, while the boys attempted a flawless chicken breast.

After the judging finished, the top 12 in each category were given an apron and the chance to compete for the MasterChef Junior title. Congratulations on earning one of those coveted aprons, Juelz!

The show airs on Friday nights at 8 p.m. on FOX.
