MasterChef sets out to find a nation’s best amateur cook. A cook whose talent and passion could transform their life. Thousands audition for the MasterChef Judges, but only the Top 50 are put through to boot-camp.

Here, their culinary skills will be pushed to the limit as only half of them will be awarded a place in the MasterChef Kitchen. This is where the competition really heats up as the amateurs are whittled down as they face their toughest challenges yet, only one will be crowned the nation’s MasterChef.

Produced in 60 countries and broadcast in over 200 territories, MasterChef is watched globally by over 250 million viewers and has transformed over 100 amateur cooks into professionals.
