This makes sense: TEN has confirmed it is not planning a comeback for Junior MasterChef.
“The speculation about a revival of MasterChef Junior is wrong,” a TEN spokesman says. “We have never contemplated it. It has never been considered. We are not doing it.
“We are delighted with how MasterChef Australia has performed in recent years: its audience increased 31 per cent in 2014 and another 15 per cent this year, and The Winner Announced episode is the most-watched non-sport television show of 2015.”
The reason MasterChef worked so well this year is because there were no more spin-offs and it has returned to its core values.
News Corp also reports TEN is believed to have rejected plans for more Bachelorette spin-offs.
This contradicts an earlier News Corp story reporting TEN was mulling spin-offs Bachelor Pad and Bachelor in Paradise -the latter had been under consideration for more than a year, before the network opted for Bachelorette.
TEN has previously confirmed the return of The Great Australian Spelling Bee.
