MasterChef Junior Season 2 Champ Logan Guleff

When I think of the reality TV show MasterChef, I think of Gordon Ramsey who is notorious for his rather blunt and explosive behavior. Many people watch the culinary competition show for Ramsey’s outbursts instead of for the food. However, that’s not all that he’s known for. He’s certainly more kind on his other show MasterChef Junior through which he mentors and fosters talent in kids who show promising culinary talent.

During the second season of the American version of junior show in the international MasterChef franchise, one of the contestants was Logan Guleff, a 11 year old from Memphis, Tennessee. According to Wikipedia, Guleff started cooking young — at two. Later he appeared on The Today Show as part of a contest for creative sandwiches. By standing out in a pool of 20,000 kids vying for the title of MasterChef Junior, Bianca Phillips of the Memphis Flyer reported that after making on to the TV show, “the bow-tied kid-chef made his way to the top by wowing judges with his innovative, gourmet meals” in December 2014. His skills and talent have lead him to do other great things — like hanging out at The White House with President Obama and the First Lady.

I know that this show has inspired many families to cook and eat together. These practices can help unite families, promote health, and instill valuable skills in people starting at a young age.

Not bad for someone who will only know the whole Y2K brouhaha as a silly thing to learn in history class as he wasn’t born until after that craze… Clearly, Guleff has a great future ahead of him.

One thing that I really like about him is that he’s a bow tie devotee. He sported bow ties while competing on MasterChef Junior and has continued to promote this sartorial preference through his social media channels. As an ambassador for this neckwear fellowship, he is proof that those who sport bow ties include accomplished individuals who help improve the world.

Needless to say, we should keep an eye on this guy.
