In what has probably been the most emotional competition elimination so far, it was Sam's turn to bid adieu to the MasterChef kitchen. A high-pressure challenge — the contestants had to choose between time or ingredients — saw him go head to head with some of his closest friends in the house (we're here for you, little Callan!), and sadly, stumble a little with his technique.

"People see the tears at home and don't understand why. We've been through this incredible experience together . . . It's an environment where everyone loves food and you're bonding over similar things," he told POPSUGAR Australia. "You can't talk to your family, these people become your family and are who you lean on during tough times."

While many are no doubt sad to see him go, let's all commiserate in the fact that he's got big things planned — we're holding you to it, Sam (kind of). Keep reading for what he had to say about post-MasterChef life.
