Okay thank you due to Matildas game

Wonder why they don’t air these international MC on their multichannel

Synopses for this week’s episodes

Sunday 2 June
King of the sea, Rick Stein is here, and the contestants are excited cooking for such an icon. Over two rounds, seafood is on the menu but for one cook, it will be their last time in the kitchen.

Tuesday 4 June
Contestants face off in a team service challenge at the Cheeky Squire Hotel, Frankston, where they are tasked with elevating traditional pub food.

Wednesday 5 June (State of Origin game 1)
The losing team from the pub challenge must cook along with legendary chef Curtis Stone as he creates his Spice Rubbed Pork, Smoked Beetroot and Hasselback Potatoes.

Thursday 6 June
Today’s challenge is to combine two nations’ cuisines into a tasty dish. There is a huge prize on the line: the winning sauce will be made available to buy in Coles stores around the country. Curtis Stone returns as guest judge.

Or put it on Saturday’s 6.30 on the main channel.

I don’t think 10 would want to oversaturate one of their big formats. There is already Dessert Masters airing straight after this season which is more than enough MC in a year.


10 had to but some effort into advising MasterChef viewers about Monday’s pre-emption to assure them the show would be back on Tuesday with watermark running throughout as well as promos.


Looks like Tuesday’s team challenge was filmed at The Cheeky Squire Hotel in Frankston at the end of January this year, based on this notice on the pub’s Facebook page.


I like checking out what Poh and Sofia wear each episode

Tonight :slight_smile:


SBS Audio’s Punjabi program did an interview with Sumeet, which aired yesterday.

Seems that the producers loved the “cooking with the chef” format this season (Jamie Oliver did it in week 2) that they brought it back for tonight’s elimination. In this episode, the losing team from last night’s Frankston pub food challenge (Sue, Darrsh, Alex, Gillian, Josh Perry and Lachlan) had to keep up with Curtis Stone as he created his Spice Rubbed Pork, Smoked Beetroot and Hasselback Potatoes.

It’s my least favourite challenge. Throw Curtis into the mix, and I think i’ll sit tonight’s episode out.

A (Network 10) spokesperson confirmed the four judges will be returning for the 2025 series after they made a hugely successful debut this year, impressing the cast and viewers.

They said: ‘Judges Andy Allen, Poh Ling Yeow, Sofia Levin and Jean-Christophe Novelli will all be returning to the MasterChef Australia kitchen in 2025 to serve up another delicious season of Australia’s favourite cooking show.’

I think I’d prefer Andy, Poh and Sofia.

Me too. This type of challenge relies too much on being able to keep up with the chef on every aspect of the cook and if you fall behind on just one thing it can have a snowball effect. Whereas a pressure test you can divide your time up better and spend more on certain elements if you need too.


Andy, Poh & Jean-Christophe for me.


Sumeet’s InTALIAN Simmer Sauce Heats Up Coles Shelves.

Sumeet Saigal Wins MasterChef Australia Immunity Challenge With A Spicy Fusion Of Indian And Italian Flavours.

MasterChef Australia contestant Sumeet Saigal has introduced her InTALIAN Simmer Sauce, a unique blend of Indian and Italian flavours, now available at Coles. Saigal’s innovative sauce impressed the MasterChef judges and celebrity chef Curtis Stone, winning her the coveted immunity challenge and securing her spot in the top 10. The Immunity Challenge required contestants to create a fusion sauce, and Sumeet’s creation, featuring InTALIAN meatballs and naan with oregano chilli butter, stood out for its bold and harmonious flavours.

This collaboration with Paramount Brand Studio marks the second year of bringing a MasterChef contestant’s products to Coles shelves. Available for a limited time, Sumeet’s InTALIAN Simmer Sauce celebrates the fusion of two iconic cuisines, offering customers a taste of culinary creativity nationwide.

Sumeet said: “Indian and Italian foods share the same values of warmth and generosity, and I am so pleased that I get to bring the same to the everyday table with my InTALIAN Simmer Sauce. It has the aromatic spices of Indian food and also the warm herbs of Italian cooking. A perfect blend of two worlds that promises to be versatile and bring bursts of flavour to your family meals.

“To have my sauce available on the shelves of Coles is an absolute dream come true. I am so grateful to MasterChef, Network 10 and Coles for this life-changing opportunity. Winning this challenge is a great personal victory but also a celebration of the support and encouragement I have received from my family and friends. It’s a moment I will cherish forever!”

Tamar Hovagimian, Head of Partnerships - Paramount Brand Studio at Paramount Australia, said: “Building on the success of last year’s Coles BarbeRue Sauce, we’re thrilled to offer another MasterChef contestant this incredible opportunity, especially someone as deserving as Sumeet. MasterChef Australia and Coles set the standard for seamless brand integration, and this collaboration is a prime example. It’s not just about getting a product on shelves; it’s about empowering contestants to turn their culinary passion into a thriving career. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime chance that embodies the spirit of what the MasterChef and Coles partnership represents.”

Carmel Horvath, Head of Sponsorships and Events at Coles, said: “MasterChef Australia has been inspiring our customers to create delicious food since 2009. We’re excited to offer our customers a brand-new product from a MasterChef challenge, available at Coles stores nationally the very next day.”

Marty Benson, Director of Content, Melbourne at Endemol Shine Australia, said: “We wholeheartedly welcomed the opportunity to work with Coles on this collaboration for a second year running. To have such a tangible, real-world application for our contestants’ talents is not only life-changing for them, but exciting for the MasterChef Australia brand, and for our audience to sample the flavours of the MasterChef kitchen directly. We are thrilled to see Sumeet bringing her food dream to life.”
