MasterChef Australia is a competitive cooking game-show based on the original British MasterChef. The series has a different format from that of the original. Initial rounds consist of a large number of hopeful contestants from across Australia individually “auditioning” by presenting a food dish before the three judges in order to gain one of 50 semi-final places.
The semi-finalists compete in several challenges that test their food knowledge and preparation skills. The contestants are then whittled down through a number of individual and team-based cooking challenges and weekly elimination rounds until a winning MasterChef is crowned. The winner plays for a prize that includes chef training from leading professional chefs, the chance to have their own cookbook published, and $250,000 in cash.
