Starkville teen cooking his way to TV glory

When he’s not cooking steak and shrimp on the weekends, young Mark Coblentz is wowing judges and millions of Americans with his kitchen prowess and Mississippi charm on Fox’s MasterChef Junior. He says it’s hard to balance school, television and football practice, but it’s all worth it to act as an ambassador for the Magnolia State. He describes the reactions of people when he tells them where he’s from: He says “their mouths sort of fall open.”

The perfect time to feed them.

You can catch Mark working his way to the final rounds of MasterChef Junior, Thursday nights on Fox.
