It’s the feel-good cooking show that leaves us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, and the new star-studded version of MasterChef Australia has been no exception.

There may be famous faces in the kitchen this time around, instead of aspiring chefs, but all the love, support and good-natured fun still remains as Celebrity MasterChef premieres.

Stars like Back To The Rafters actor Rebecca Gibney and chef Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, Tilly Ramsay, are among the contestants who have been making their mark in the iconic MasterChef Kitchen this season.

Comedian and TV WEEK Logie Award-winning star Dilruk Jayasinha was an early favourite, having won the Immunity Pin in the premiere episode. Cooking up a tasty Sri Lankan Kiribath with Lunu Miris and an Indonesian Beef Rendang, he certainly impressed the judges, Melissa Leong, Andy Allen and Jock Zonfrillo.

But, he’s not the one currently rumoured to take out the competition, after being eliminated this week. The Top 3 now consists of Nick Riewoldt, Collette Dinnigan and Tilly Ramsay as we head towards the finale.

Former AFL player Nick Riewoldt is currently predicted to come in first place, with the winner reportedly being leaked as he’s ranked in the number one spot on SportsBet.

Betting odds place Nick as the winner, followed by Tilly Ramsay in second place and Collette Dinnigan in third place. The theory goes that the betting odds are based on ‘leaks’ and can be used by fans to ‘predict’ who will win the series.

And while a theory is just a theory – and someone in the Facebook comments will no doubt claim this story is ‘rubbish’ – it’s actually proven true for the winner of every single show from The Bachelor to The Masked Singer and The Voice Australia. So, do with that what you will friends.
