We all thought George Calombaris would get the flick but now all three MasterChef Australia judges will not be returning next year.
On the eve of the MasterChef grand final episode, Channel 10 says it could not come to a “commercial agreement” with George, Gary Mehigan and Matt Preston.
This is the biggest scandal to hit the show since John went rogue and cooked white chocolate veloute.
After 11 years with the trio at the helm, this could be the refresh the show needs.
I’m sorry to see Matt go but I am hoping for some female faces on the judging panel next year because, well, women work in the food industry, too.
Full story here.
And from the MC official Twitter account:
After 11 sensational seasons, we bid a fond farewell to our judges – Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris. Thank you for being a part of this remarkable #MasterChefAU legacy and helping make the culinary dreams of everyday home cooks come true! pic.twitter.com/uG0A3ec8jI
