In addition to Obama, a string of famous chefs and celebrities will also make an appearance on the show, including Martha Stewart and the Muppets.
Obama served as an outspoken advocate for healthy eating throughout her tenure in the White House, namely with her establishment of the Let’s Move! campaign. Her “Turnip for what?” vine became a viral sensation as she urged kids to embrace and enjoy their fruits and veggies. In 2015, she vowed to “fight back” against ads for unhealthy foods, especially in school lunches.
While the former First Lady is used to some spectacular cooking, MasterChef Junior contestants bring it up to a whole new caliber. Ramsay called the newest batch of contestants “bloody good,” so it looks like the young chefs are about to turnip the heat in the kitchen.
Correction: The original version of this story misstated Michelle Obama’s upcoming role on MasterChef Junior. She will be a guest star, not a guest judge.
