Get ready, people, because Nickelodeon is celebrating the holidays with a brand new competition series called Top Elf, and J-14 has all the exclusive details!

Seven kids with extraordinary building and design skills will have to put their expertise to the test in a series of holiday-themed challenges — from designing their own life-sized gingerbread clubhouses, to reimagining Santa’s sleigh, to creating giant 3-D holiday cards. Across five one-hour episodes, the seven “Elf-testants” will compete to become Santa’s “Top Elf.” The winner will have their wish lists granted — but want to know the best part? All prizes will be donated to charity! The series will be hosted by Tommy Snider (he’ll play Santa) and Samantha Turret (who will star as Ms. Jingles), and fans cannot wait!

Top Elf Santa Ms. Jingles

The seven skillful “Elf-testants” competing this season are: Aiko from New York City, NY, Allison from Walnut, CA, Briana from Los Angeles, CA, Cameron from Georgetown, KY, Hopper from Highland Park, TX, Hud from Oxford, MS and Justice from Jamaica, NY.

Top Elf Contestants

Each “Elf-testant” will be paired with one of Santa’s elves who will help bring their visions to life. The elves include Chip Snuggles (Rudy Martinez), Nog Shimmerhorn (David Magidoff), Ginger O’Tingleton (Jenna Wright), Merry Sparkleberry (Nataliz Jimenez), Tinsel Turtledove (Ashley August), Zippy Twinkles (David Morales) and Stretch McDancerpants (Eric Stretch).

At the end of each episode, the “Elf-testants” will be judged by Santa, Ms. Jingles and a celebrity guest to decide who is on the “nice” or “naughty” list and one step closer to being named the “Top Elf.” Just wait until you uncover the celebrity guest judges! Drum roll please… Frankie Grande, Amirah Kassem, Peyton List, Alex Wassabi and Pete Wentz will all make appearances!

Wow, how epic does that sound? The show will premiere on Friday, November 29, at 8:00 P.M. EST/PST. After that, it will air every Friday on Nickelodeon, with the season finale taking place on Saturday, December 21, at 8:00 P.M. EST/PST.
