MasterChef Australia

Alumni at Crown was officially launched on Tuesday night. Callum, Khanh and Kishwar were there, as well as judges Poh, Andy and Sofia, former contestant Jess Liemantara, chef Guillaume Brahimi, and many others.

Here are the photos from Callum’s Instagram.

Nice promo just aired before tonight’s episode results have been revealed showing one of four who is going home Sunday night :roll_eyes:

I think it was a one-off, as the four contestants were spread across three losing teams in the relay challenge.

There was no one from the winning team in the promo.

Not only that, why are they showing only an option of four contestants when the the whole rest of the comp will be competing Sunday night?

Is there no masterclass this year??

Has that ever happened before where a contestant accidently uses another’s components to plate up their dish?

First time I’d reckon in MCAU history

It’s very rare, but I am sure it has happened before.

There was a sneak peek of this on MasterChef’s Instagram account this afternoon.

I don’t think there were any last year either? Given they’ve gone to 4 episodes a week I would say it’s unlikely that we get any. They have kind of incorporated some into the challenges anyway, like last night each judge showed a technique of how to make something in a microwave. Each dish then had to use one of these techniques. It looks like there might be a similar thing next week with the TikTok star on the show.

That was kind of hilarious. Lucky it wasn’t an elimination challenge.

I’ve often thought of mishaps that might happen that we never see; but I didn’t imagine that this would be a possibility. If it was an elimination challenge it would have meant some sort of disqualification.
