In the video, the judges critique Alexander's dish -- a pan-seared filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes, a fresh green salad, butter-glazed carrots and a spicy mixed-berry puree.
"You've come up with a very good dish," said Gordon Ramsay, who was particularly blown away by the creamy mashed potatoes. "Great job."
Graham Elliot agreed, even going as far as comparing the 13-year-old chef to his younger self.
"I was nowhere near where you are at your age," Graham gushed. "I'm extremely excited to see what you keep doing as we go along."
