    MasterChef Australia 2024: Meet the contestants

    MasterChef Australia is ushering in a brand-new era in 2024 with twenty-two contestants who are ready to be put through their culinary paces by Andy Allen and three new judges.

    The home cooks will enter the competition hoping to be the last chef standing while competing with each other in new Pressure Tests, Elimination Challenges and all-in group tasks. 

    The three new judges joining the show include alumnus Poh Ling Yeow, food critic and journalist Sofia Levin, and multi-Michelin Star award-winning chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli.

    The new series promises a “fusion of familiarity and novelty as both fresh faces and beloved alumni come together, crafting a reimagined family steeped in gastronomic excellence.”
