Here's All the MasterChef Alumni Returning in 2020
MasterChef is back for season 12, boasting new judges, chef Andy Allen, food critic Melissa Leong and restaurateur and chef Jock Zonfrillo, after the departure last year of original judges Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan.
The format of the loved cooking show will also be shaken up, with 24 contestants from previous seasons, at the top of their culinary game, returning to vy for the MasterChef crown (see: chef's hat).
These returnees include Poh Ling Yeow, runner-up on season one, second place for season two, Callum Hann, and last year's number two chef, Tessa Boersma.
Poh explains the opportunity she's been craving since 2009. "I've been waiting for this moment for 10 years and now I'm back. I have a little bit of unfinished business."
Callum added: "Everyone who's here is at the top of their game. This is going to be really, really rough. There's cookbook authors, TV presenters, restaurant owners and those who just missed out."
