Filming for MasterChef Australia 2021 has commenced in Melbourne, making it the third series in twelve months for new judges Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen.
“There’s some tremendous talent, and it sets us up for a brilliant year,” said Leong.
Andy Allen agreed the talent is outstanding once again.
“The Back to Win guys were amazing, and we’re not going to take anything away from them. But they’d kind of built their style and the way that they cooked. But these guys are bright eyed and bushy tailed.
“It’s going to be good to see them grow, on a personal level.”
Jock Zonfrillo also didn’t hold back.
“All I’m going to say is, I thought we had some beautiful humans last year. But 2021 is unbelievable.
“Two seasons of MasterChef with no COVID cases -a total of 8 months filming- says a lot about production and the crew.
Leong added, “We feel very grateful that we had the opportunity to continue, and in many ways we didn’t really stop. What a year!”
