Sunday week’s big night of television, the MasterChef finale will decide the winner for the series for 2010.
But it won’t be technically live.
The first 90 minutes “Finale Night” are already in the can.
The final 30 minutes “The Winner Announced” will be filmed on the day and put to air at 9pm. This is to avoid media leaks of the winner ahead of the show.
There had been some speculation the announcement would be live to air, but TV Tonight understands it will now be “As Live.”
TEN’s Guides also give no indication of any “Live” element.
Meanwhile Nine is trying to offer an alternative with a repeat of its CSI crossover event with one storyline spanning across Las Vegas, Miami and New York.
