The tiny chefs are at it again!

The third season of MasterChef Junior is upon us and PEOPLE has the exclusive first look.

In the clip, the contestants, ages 8 to 13 years old, are sent on a treasure hunt for personalized white aprons they’ll wear throughout the season.

“Were not just going to hand them over to you,” says Gordon Ramsay who is joined by co-judges Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianch. “You’re going to have to go and find them because they’re all hidden in the MasterChef Junior pantry.”

With their oohs and ahhs, you can feel the excitement in the room.

“Is everybody ready to go in the most extraordinary pantry?” asks Ramsay.

And off they go!

Find out who gets their hands on the white aprons first and watch the young home cooks compete for the winning title when the show premieres Tuesday January 6 (8 p.m. ET) on FOX.
