MasterChef Australia contestant Brent Draper has been forced to sit out of this week’s reality competition.
“Unfortunately Brent has been exposed to a COVID hot spot and as a result has to quarantine until he returns for Sunday’s elimination,” Melissa Leong told contestants last night.
“That means, he avoids tomorrow’s pressure test.
“To make it fair for everyone, Brent must compete in next week’s pressure test no matter what. And, if he survives that, he will continue on in the competition as usual.
“What strange times we live in…”
It isn’t clear if Draper, a 31 year old boilermaker from Queensland, was caught up in a hotspot in Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane.
10’s series began filming late last year.
