Ben Watkins

At the age of 14, former Masterchef Junior contestant Ben Watkins unfortunately passed away after his battle with a rare form of cancer called angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma. He had only been diagnosed with the illness soon after his 13th birthday.

Watkins lost both of his parents back in 2017, but despite that tragedy, is remembered as being strong and resilient in the face of his obstacles, especially for his age. Starring in Masterchef Junior during the show’s sixth season, Watkins was a fan favorite and he made it to the top 18. Main host of the show and famous chef Gordon Ramsay described Watkins as an “incredibly talented home cook and even stronger young man.”
