This fall the competition heats up with an Impossible tournament and kids competing in the series spinoff Chopped Junior. In Chopped: Impossible, premiering Thursday, Oct. 22 at 8|7c, 12 returning champions are pushed to the limits with mind-blowingly impossible baskets in a four-part tournament. Restaurant: Impossible's Robert Irvine will serve as judge in the first three preliminary rounds, but he'll get the chance to face off against the final competitor in a wild-card round. The winner will earn $15,000 just for getting to the final round, but if the final competitor wins against Robert, he or she will pocket an additional $25,000 for a total of $40,000.

The stakes will be big, but the competitors small as junior chefs ages 10 to 14 compete for a chance to earn the title of Chopped Junior Champion on the new series Chopped Junior, premiering Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8|7c. They bring their unbridled energy, limitless talent and big personalities to the Chopped kitchen. Like in regular Chopped, $10,000 is on the line, but only one kid can win the monetary prize. In addition to the regular judges, renowned chefs and celebrities will take seats behind the judges' table, including Sam Kass, Sam Talbot, Michelle Bernstein, Martha Stewart, Laila Ali, Valerie Bertinelli, Mila Kunis and Hayden Panettiere.

Are you a restaurant chef who can accomplish the impossible in a kitchen? Starting on October 15, fill your basket with a list of assigned ingredients, create a dish and share it on FoodNetwork.com/restaurantchallenge for your chance to compete in a Chopped-style battle and win $10,000.
