TEN has now confirmed the premiere date of MasterChef Australia All Stars, its three week season of former MasterChef champs returning to the kitchen.
It premieres at 7pm Thursday July 26th.
This follows the 2 hour finale for MasterChef Australia at 7pm Wednesday July 25. This year there will be three fighting for the series title.
TEN has filmed all but the judging for the finale, which takes place on the day itself.
All your favourite MasterChef contestants from seasons past return to the MasterChef kitchen once more for the first ever, MasterChef All Stars! Julie, Kate, Marion, Hayden, Callum, Poh and more, step back into the kitchen in the name of charity. Eager to raise as much money as they can for their charity of choice, the All Star Top 12 battle with a smile as they take on the first challenge of the series, and what a challenge it is! A croquembouche no less!
The dish overwhelmingly nominated as the hardest in MasterChef history, first up? Surely not? Yes, it’s for charity, but we never said this was going to be easy. It’s All Stars!
Adriano Zumbo sets the challenge and there is a buzz of fun energy in the MasterChef kitchen. The contestants love being back, but they want to win. It’s all about friendly competition as the three teams [determined by seasons] bake and build their impressive croquembouche tower, with the winning team taking home $20k [$5k for each team member’s charity].
