A Kid Contestant Sliced Her Fingers Open On ‘MasterChef Junior’

Little kids + knives + weird, angry British man screaming = what could go wrong? Pretty much what you’d expect: in the season three premiere of MasterChef Junior, which returns to Fox tonight, mini-chef Kayla, 11, sliced two of her fingers while attempting to cut a lime.

“It happened so quick,” Kayla tells me.

“All I remember seeing was, like, part of my nail was gone and there was just blood everywhere. It was horrible. Honestly, I didn’t really know what to do. You want to keep pushing and you want to keep going to cook and finish. I was just really nervous that I wasn’t going to be able to finish the challenge.” (Via)

Host Gordon Ramsay joked to Kayla, “How did you manage to cut two fingers at once?” but internally, he was thinking, “What the sh*t did this f*cking c*nt do to my f*cking set?” He had just finished watching Whiplash, so he was in a particularly inspired mood.
