About the Show

2024 ushers in a new MasterChef Australia era, and there’s never been a season like this.

We've never seen creations like these, we've never met cooks like these and there have never been moments like these!

Andy Allen carries on Jock Zonfrillo’s legacy alongside three acclaimed new judges: MasterChef Australia alum Poh Ling Yeow, food critic and journalist Sofia Levin, and multi–Michelin Star and award-winning chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli.

The new judging panel will mentor this season’s crop of contenders through exciting challenges designed to test and develop them while honing their skills at every turn.

The competition will be fierce as 22 of Australia’s best home cooks assemble, vying for the coveted title of MasterChef Australia winner 2024 and $250,000 in prize money. This season will also see a money-can’t-buy prize on offer, with an opportunity of a lifetime in store for the winner.

In its 16th season, MasterChef Australia continues to be a magnet for the world’s biggest culinary icons.

Kicking things off, superstar UK chef Jamie Oliver joins the kitchen for two weeks. As well as sharing his culinary knowledge with the contestants, Jamie’s warmth has the home cooks at ease in the MasterChef kitchen from day one.

Week on week the competition will provide once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, featuring a who’s who of chefs from across the globe, and taking the competition on the road, winging it all the way to culinary hot spot Hong Kong, as well as visiting regional Aussie gems Bendigo and Ballarat.

Fan favourites Adriano Zumbo and Anna Polyviou, icons Curtis Stone and Rick Stein and social sensations Vincent Yeow Lim (AKA DimSimLim) and Mikiko Terasaki are just a handful of the local and international chefs who are welcomed into the MasterChef kitchen to share their delicious dishes.

MasterChef Australia is the country’s most successful cooking competition. In 2023, the much-loved series again took home the Most Popular Reality Program award at the TV Week Logie Awards, and more recently, scooped its seventh AACTA Award for Best Reality Program.

In 2024, the pressure is on to see who will rise to the top and claim the title.

The next chapter of MasterChef Australia is like nothing we’ve seen before.
