TEN has confirmed there will only be one series of the show next year, ditching all spin-offs involving professionals, all-stars, celebrities and kids.
“There has been a lot of MasterChef on in the past couple of years so really what this show needs is a break,” TEN program chief Beverly McGarvey told News Corp.
“It is definitely our intention to rebuild the brand – to grow the numbers next year. We think it is still a great show. We like what it represents. It is about dream fulfilment.
“We think the audience likes that too but they’re just a bit tired. We’re not going to do a variant this (next) year. When it has a break we think people will respond to it the way they used to.”
Good decision. We’ve had far too much of the show in recent years and this dilutes the brand.
Tonight Emma Dean, Samira El Khafir and Lynton Tapp will compete for the 2013 title.
