Immunity pin fail makes Masterchef history, Seven wins Thursday.

Ratings: Nine wins primary channels on a night of staggered scheduling.

A MasterChef Australia contestant made history last night, when Loki gambled Survivor-like, on keeping his Immunity pin before a challenge.

But it proved to be his downfall when he was sent packing after failing to defeat 8 other contestants in a Pressure Test. The show pulled 845,000, up on last week’s 781,000, and claiming top entertainment crown. That helped Todd Sampson’s Body Hack 2.0 to debut with 537,000,.

Nine topped primary channels, winning slots with ACA and the NRL / Footy Show combo from 9pm. Seven News and The Chase won for Seven with a Melbourne win for The Front Bar over Footy Show.

Elsewhere, The Handmaid’s Tale pulled in more viewers than the trains on SBS.

  1. Poor Loki. Having George screaming at him not to panic didn’t help. We needed Gordon there to encourage him & give helpful advice. George has been getting nastier every year. What is his problem lately? Everyone’s noticed it on forums & Twitter. He needs to read the feedback & change his attitude.

  2. I went to the good food and wine show in melbourne today and Loki was there. I wanted to ask him if he did get to take the pin home but he was busy talking to people.

    He probably thought he was up against 8 other people and thought he wouldn’t go home as someone would cook worse than him.

  3. MC….don’t forget that they give the eliminated folk a second chance. Don’t be surprised if Loki comes back, wins it with his immunity pin intact….just sayin’

      1. What a great question – one I don’t think I’ve ever seen proposed in a reality show before! I’d prefer it not to be in play. I think it’s like points earned in a video game and you’ve lost all your lives. You go back to zero if you use another credit for another shot.

    1. Yes has been that way for years and for our family the immunity challenges are so boring why don’t they put them up against very experienced chefs instead of junior ones and no help from the Bennett? ??
