Boy Scout advances to finals of ‘MasterChef Junior’

Boy Scout Logan Guleff sure has made the most of his appearance on Fox’s MasterChef Junior, a nationally televised cooking competition for kids.

The 12-year-old from Troop 34 of the Chickasaw Council, headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., has advanced to the finals. That means he’ll appear in every episode of the season.

Logan will compete in the final two against Samuel, with the winner picking up $100,000. Not bad for a 12-year-old!

While watching MasterChef Junior this season, I’ve been impressed by Logan’s willingness to encourage others. He’s always the first to congratulate a competitor on a dish well done, and he’s quick to acknowledge his own mistakes.

Humility and kindness aren’t traits you often see on reality TV, but they are common in Scouting. So it makes sense.

Tune in tonight

Watch the season finale of MasterChef Junior at 8 p.m. (7 Central) tonight (Tuesday, Dec. 16) on Fox. If you’re late to the party, you can catch up on past episodes here.

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.
