Somehow it seems to come with the territory every year, but this year MasterChef had been spared the Spoilers -until now.
Woman’s Day magazine has yesterday printed a two-page feature under the headline “MasterChef Top 5: Love Secrets and Scandals”.
The final five aren’t due to be revealed until Sunday night.
“Unfortunately Woman’s Day made a mistake and announced the top five MasterChef contestants one week early,” TEN’s head of publicity Jo’an Papadopoulos told the Daily Telegraph yesterday.
“We are extremely disappointed for our fans that this error occurred. However when and how the contestants are eliminated is still to be revealed and we are confident viewers will be enthralled with these episodes.”
Last year TEN’s own promos spoiled some of the show, when Immunity pins could be seen being worn. Matt Preston was also accused of tweeting a Spoiler, but it turned out to be a red herring. In the first year, one newspaper also printed the wrong winner results, following advance media interviews with both finalists.
Last night Wade was eliminated with all remaining contestants facing Elimination tonight.
