Returning: MasterChef Australia

MasterChef Australia has confirmed its return date with 24 contestants and new judges Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen.

It resumes (Easter) Monday, 13 April at 7.30pm with chef Gordon Ramsay (there are no dates yet for its expected competition Lego Masters and House Rules).

On the weekend it was confirmed Ben Ungermann has been dropped from the series, but given he still appears in promos this will probably take effect during the broadcast season.

MasterChef Australia, the highly anticipated cooking show is returning for an incredible 12th season with a tasty new recipe.

Returning to the MasterChef kitchen are 24 much-loved and respected former contestants. Although these familiar faces from the past 11 seasons have forged incredible careers in the food industry, they all have some unfinished business – they are back to win.

    MasterChef would still be filming so it will be interesting to see how it is impacted by the current situation. They usually do their weekly challenge out in the community. In restaurants, outdoor markets & various places which usually attract large crowds. And were they going interstate or overseas?
    Any word on when Bachelor in Paradise is on? It would have to be in between Survivor & MasterChef.

  2. Can not wait! Really excited for this season. I think people will be craving such a positive show. With new judges and fav contestants, I predict best ratings in a couple of years.

  3. Hi David, do you know if filming on this has wrapped? ie. is it worth investing in it if we may not see the whole season play out on screen?
