Will You Watch Top Chef Junior?

This morning Bravo announced its plans for Top Chef Junior. Similar to Top Chef, the eight-episode series will feature teens battling it out in the kitchen and competing in culinary challenges. Frances Berwick, the general manager of Bravo Media, explains the network's decision to expand the Top Chef brand:

With Top Chef as the No. 1 food show on cable comes the natural expansion in our food domain. With Top Chef Junior we're reaching a growing market and are developing a series that will teach and test the skills of younger aspiring chefs and appeal to the whole family.

Bravo is also planning another untitled, food-related reality series highlighting the life of "the world's sexiest chef," Jean-Christophe Novelli.

Knowing Bravo's track record, these shows have the potential to be smashing hits. Will you watch?

Um, isn't Top Chef already filled with high-school style drama? I think I'll pass.

Nope - I'll stick with the grown-up chefs.

I think this is kind of a stupid idea and a weird step for Bravo to take. That being said, I'll probably end up watching it, I'm such a sucker for Bravo...I watch even the worst shows of the bunch.

to be honest, i don't think that i'm going to watch it. i LOVE TC but to think about watching teens battle it out - i don't think so. it's different when it's someone's occupation and their passion etc, and it's another when there's a really talented teen that's doing it for now...

I'm 17, can I sign up?! I do love to cook, but I don't think I could do it under pressure the way the Top Chef challenges demand. I'm still learning.

I'll definitely watch! I love top chef, I think its going to be really interesting to see what these teens can do and how much training they have/don't have.

I think it's going to suck, and I think Bravo's viewers will let them know. Without mercy. Which will likely damage the children psychologically.
