MasterChef favourite Callum Hann has been eliminated from the series, just shy of the 2020 semi-final.
Battling Reynold & Laura last night, he cooked up snapper but the judges decided it had a mushy texture.
It was another emotional farewell for the South Australian who was runner-up in 2010 and previously won an All-Stars edition in 2012. Melissa Leong said his name was synonymous with the Masterchef kitchen, paying tribute to his talent and humility.
“I’ve loved coming back,” Callum said. “I’ve loved every part of spending time with these guys, I’ve loved getting to meet and know all three of you (judges) a little bit better and (to) be part of something really special.
“I would have loved to have gone a little bit further, but even without taking away the trophy, I still feel like I’ve come a long way. I feel like I’ve learned a lot and I’m definitely taking that back to Adelaide with me. I just want to say a big thank-you to you guys.”
On Sunday, Reynold Poernomo, Emelia Jackson and Laura Sharrad will battle for the Top 2 places up for grabs in the grand final, set for Monday.
7:30pm Sunday on 10.
