Pencil in the week of May 4th as the likely launch for MasterChef.
While the post-Logies week is no real surprise as the week new shows will roll out, yesterday TEN sent out an amendment in which it withdrew previously scheduled episodes of The Odd Couple, Gold Coast Cops, Bondi Rescue, David Attenborough, Modern Family repeats and even The Living Room (TV Tonight tipped these as possible red herrings).
Monday – Friday at 7:30pm is now officially TBA. It still risks going head to head against either Reno Rumble and / or House Rules. There is also a risk MKR may not hold its Grand Final until Tuesday May 5 after it had a Tuesday, which would match the 2014 final.
MasterChef Australia is set to return to our screens with a fresh group of home cooks eager to tackle challenges that will see one of them take home the title of Australia’s next MasterChef. These are ordinary Australians who can do extraordinary things for the love of food.
As chefs, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris are relishing the chance to mentor these high-calibre cooks, pushing them to better their best dish each time they tie their apron strings.
Renowned food critic and fellow judge Matt Preston will motivate, educate and stimulate the contestants to harness their skill and creativity to continually raise the bar. Celebrated chef Shannon Bennett joins as a guest mentor this series, guiding the home cooks through testing times.
Season seven also boasts some of Australia’s and the world’s best chefs including Maggie Beer, Massimo Bottura, Curtis Stone, Rick Stein, Heston Blumenthal and Marco Pierre White, to name just a few.
With all these ingredients, it is a recipe that will take our contestants closer to achieving their food dreams and changing the course of their lives, as they compete to be the next Australian MasterChef.
