MasterChef Australia 2021 has served up some of the most incredibly talented home chefs we’ve ever seen.
The contestants have all put their heart and soul into the competition, bringing plate after plate of delicious food and stealing our hearts with their stories in the process.
As co-host, Melissa Leong told the participants at the outset of the competition, “We want to see you grow and thrive and be the best that you can be. That’s what makes us so proud to be part of this family together.”
While these culinary hopefuls have undoubtedly grown and thrived during their time on the reality cooking show, there can unfortunately only be one chef who takes home the $250,000 prize and claims the title of MasterChef Australia 2021.
Leong and her co-hosts Andy Allen and Jock Zonfrillo may have the enviable job of eating all of the tasty things the contestants serve up, but they also have the very unenviable job of telling someone each week that their MasterChef dreams are over. Better them than us, sob!
