Caught the premiere, and seriously, these children make me feel so ashamed at me being such a disastrous cook. I wouldn't even call myself a cook, that's how bad I am. They are so amazingly good at what they do. That Oona girl, her risking elimination, having never made chicken liver pate before in her life, and she just rocks it. So cool.
If there is one child I am not particularly liking right now, it's Samuel, he has kind of an ego and needs to tone it down. I was also very annoyed that we start off with a whopping four eliminations. That is way too much, especially because two out of the four children, Berry and Nasir, barely said a word before their elimination. I understand they are children, but the producers could do a better job regarding allowing the kids more chances to shine rather than eliminate them so fast. The Australian version had four children eliminated at once, but only after a couple of episodes with no eliminations (they eliminated the kids based on points they got in every challenge depending on how they did, so the lowest four totals would be eliminated) so the children had more of a chance to shine and the audience to see their personalities and potential.
And, after the obnoxious, irritating, downright boorish drama fest the adult version has become, it warmed my heart so much seeing the children be so supportive of each other, especially when Isabella couldn't help but cry and every single other contestant gathered around her to give their support. That was just a beautiful moment, and it shows just how much the adult contestants could learn from these children.
