It’s time to preheat the oven and slip on your apron – MasterChef Australia is back for 2024. 

Guided by MasterChef alumni Andy Allen and Poh Ling Yeow and newcomers Sofia Levin and Jean-Christophe Novelli, 22 new contestants will showcase their culinary skills and test their capabilities in the kitchen in a series of rigorous mystery challenges. 

Kicking off the season in Hong Kong, the latest groups of contestants are sure to be cooking up a storm, and we can’t wait to see each of the delicious creations they present to the judges. 

While the chefs whisk their way to a life-changing $250,000 grand prize, MasterChef has also teased that this year’s top contestant will also receive a money-can’t-buy experience that will gift the winner with the opportunity of a lifetime. 

As this year’s chefs prepare to take part in their first tasty challenge, scroll down to meet the contestants of MasterChef Australia 2024.
