Logan from Fox’s ‘MasterChef Junior’ is a Scout

Something tells me Logan Guleff won’t have any trouble earning the Eagle-required Cooking merit badge.

The 12-year-old from Troop 34 of the Chickasaw Council, headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., has advanced to the Top 12 on Fox’s MasterChef Junior.

MasterChef Junior, a spinoff of the Gordon Ramsay-led MasterChef, is a cooking competition that pits 8- to 13-year-olds against one another with $100,000 going to the winner.

That would buy exactly 1,428 Dutch ovens for Logan and the Scouts of Troop 34.

The show is rated TV-PG, meaning it’s appropriate to watch with your Scout-age kids. Episodes air at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. Central) Tuesdays on Fox.

Episode 1, which had 5.1 million viewers, is online now. Episode 2, which includes a pancake challenge that seems tailor-made for Logan, airs tonight (Nov. 11).

Logan first made headlines in Boys’ Life

This isn’t the first time Boys’ Life readers have heard about Logan. In the October 2013 issue, BL spotlighted Logan for being a winner in the 2012 Epicurious Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. Logan’s recipe earned him a trip to the White House.
