MasterChef Australia is Going to Look a Little Different in 2022 — Here are All the Details
Channel 10 have announced a number of new shows for 2022 but one that stood out the most is one that’s been on the air for 13 years now. MasterChef Australia is set to return to our screens next year, but with a twist.
MasterChef Australia: Foodies vs Favourites will star 12 returning MasterChef stars alongside a dozen everyday home cooks. Alvin Quah, Sarah Todd, Michael Weldon and Julie Goodwin will return to the kitchen and have their creations judged by Melissa Leong, Jock Zonfrillo and Andy Allen.
“We are back for another action-packed season of thrills, chills and kitchen spills… we couldn’t be more pumped! Add to that a handful of new MasterChef foodies going head-to-head with beloved characters from the MasterChef universe over the years… and then of course there’s Julie Goodwin!” said Melissa.
Beverley McGarvey, chief content officer and executive Vice President at ViacomCBS Australia and New Zealand expects the new format to be welcomed by viewers, especially those who have been watching the show since its inception.
“We know people love to see their favourites – but also, they want to have their cake and eat it, and they want to see new people. I think that adds a new element to the show.”
MasterChef Australia is one of Channel 10’s most successful shows to date and has reached international success, with a massive fanbase in India and the UK.
The show has gone through an overhaul in recent years after the judging panel was replaced. Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston stepped down from a position they held for years, to make way for Jock, Melissa and Andy.
