Meet the Young Chefs (and Grown-Ups) Competing on the First Season of 'Top Chef Family Style'
Every season of Top Chef ends with the same thrilling result: One creative and quick-thinking chef besting their competition and walking away with the title. But if you've ever wondered how chefs would fare in the Top Chef Kitchen with a little help along the way, the newest iteration of the series, Top Chef Family Style, will give you a taste of just that.
Premiering on the Peacock streaming service this September, Top Chef Family Style will see young, up-and-coming culinary superstars (read: kids of varying ages) pair up with a member of their family. And while there have been both Masters and Junior editions of Top Chef, because of the unique duos aspect, this format will feature both the youngest and oldest competitors in the Top Chef history.
Host Meghan Trainor and co-host/head judge Marcus Samuelsson will put 13 teams of two through the paces in the typical Quickfire and Elimination challenges for a shot at the title and a $50,000 prize. Of course, guest judges will pop up to critique the cheftesants' efforts including Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio, Richard Blais, Melissa King, Jojo Siwa, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Elizabeth Berkley, and wrestler The Miz.
Here's a look at everyone competing on the first season of Top Chef Family Style, with profiles provided by the show:
