Celebrity Competitors Include EMPIRE's Terrence Howard; Eric Stonestreet of "Modern Family"; REL's Lil Rel Howery; Alyson Hannigan from "How I Met Your Mother"; And NFL Legends Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith

Winner of Each Battle Earns a $25,000 Donation to Charity of His or Her Choice

This Thanksgiving, MASTERCHEF JUNIOR gives fans something to be thankful for, when multi-Michelin star Chef Gordon Ramsay and award-winning chef Aarón Sánchez invite celebrities, their kids and some fan-favorite alumni into the MASTERCHEFJUNIOR kitchen, where they'll show off their culinary skills in exciting contests for charity on the all-new MASTERCHEF JUNIOR: CELEBRITY SHOWDOWN, airing Thanksgiving night, Thursday, Nov. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, immediately following NFL ON FOX, in which the Dallas Cowboys face the Washington Redskins.

In between these epic battles in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen, host Gordon Ramsay will chat with lifestyle expert, businesswoman and TV personality Martha Stewart to swap holiday-themed recipes for the whole family to enjoy.

The two-hour special features three unique battles, putting each celebrity competitor to the test- with more than bragging rights at stake - the winners earn donations to the charities of their choice. Additionally, the contestants will face their challenges with a sous chef by their sides, whether it be one of their own children or former MASTERCHEF JUNIOR contestants.

Here are the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR match-ups:

Eric Stonestreet and MCJ Season Five Contestant Shayne vs. Terrence Howard and MCJ Season Six Finalist Avery

In a holiday-themed Mystery Box Challenge, these two TV dads will battle it out with help from some MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kids. EMPIRE's Terrence Howard (@terrencehoward) pairs up with Season Six finalist Avery while "Modern Family's" Eric Stonestreet teams with MASTERCHEF JUNIOR Season Five favorite Shayne to cook.
