On Wikipedia, a MasterChef contestant has been listed as “eliminated” on the online encyclopedia, despite still being part of the show.
According to the Wikipedia update, contestant Amina Elshafei is the next contestant to hang up her apron, and is believed to be heading home at the conclusion of Twist Week.
Amina first competed on MasterChef back in 2012 and in this year’s Back To Win season was hoping for a second shot at the crown.
Speaking to TV WEEK, Amina previously reflected on how difficult the show when she first took part.
"I think last time around, the challenges for the eliminations did wear me out a bit towards the end," she admitted.
"It was tiring – and, obviously, your self-expectations are the hardest to overcome."
Meanwhile, although MasterChef positions itself as wholesome family-friendly entertainment, tensions are said to be brewing behind the scenes.
“Don’t be fooled by the calm and collected judges and the smiling and supportive contestants,” a source tells New Idea.
“It’s up there with Married at First Sight for jaw-dropping antics.”
In what’s gearing up to be Australian television’s biggest cover-up, producers have been working around the clock to carefully edit the cooking show, ensuring that viewers and media alike are kept in the dark about what’s really happening.
In fact, according to the well-placed insider, much of the drama has stemmed directly from new judge Melissa Leong. While Melissa is certainly qualified for the role, having spent years as a food writer, consultant, TV and radio presenter and cookbook editor, New Idea’s spy says that her “ego is out of control”.
