MasterChef Australia is making its 2024 season a saga to remember. Not only are they giving the winner a life-changing amount of money, $250,000, they are also offering the winner a mystery prize. According to MasterChef Australia, this mystery prize will be something that “money can’t buy” and the “opportunity of a lifetime.” Every contestant wants these two prizes, which means that a lot of people will be crushed when they’re sent home.

For Jean-Christophe Novelli, a new judge in the MasterChef Australia kitchen, deciding who to send home was a decision he took very seriously. In an interview with The Latch, he emphasised the severity of these calls. 

“We have to find a winner,” Jean-Christophe said. “It’s very important. It’s a big prize to win. These people also have given up a lot to be on the show. They cannot work. They were chosen from a selection of 50,000 applicants. Our decisions were vital and very, very important.”

But choosing who to send home each week wasn’t easy. According to Jean-Christophe, the calibre of each contestant’s cooking was unbelievable.

“You forget they’re not chefs,” Jean-Christophe said. “They are amateur cooks. I keep forgetting that. I was judging them like professional chefs. The contestants are just so good. And the atmosphere, the ambience, the emotion, the speed? It’s just on the next level.”

“We discovered that some people grew quicker than others and some took a longer time. But at the end of the day, everyone, and I mean every single one of them, they all achieved something in MasterChef Australia.”

Here’s a breakdown of everyone who has been sent home on the 2024 season of MasterChef Australia.
