MasterChef Junior crowned a new champion Thursday night, and she’s a 12-year-old student at Atlanta’s renowned Ron Clark Academy. Jasmine Stewart, a sixth-grader, took home the MasterChef trophy as well as a $100,000 grand prize after being sent home and brought back. “This is the biggest moment of my entire life. Who would ever think a little girl from Milton, Ga., would ever win MasterChef Junior?” Jasmine said.
“Some of the highlights of the show was winning, of course,” Jasmine told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “But I did love it when I got an apron. I never thought I would even make it on the show, let alone be getting an apron and get to wear it.”
