MasterChef Australia Season 9 Teaser

A month ago, MasterChef producers released a teaser giving an insight of the upcoming season. The teaser starts with an aerial view of the kitchen. We can see Gary Mehigan saying that MasterChef isn’t the end of a contestant’s journey. It is the beginning of their dreams.

The teaser proceeds with the shots of the former contestants sharing their success stories. Most of the former MasterChef contestants have turned their dreams into reality.

Julie Goodwin started her own cooking school and has written six cookbooks. She also co-hosts a breakfast radio show on the Central Coast.

Andy Allen is now a partner in a digital media entertainment company and has opened a new restaurant. He also opened the third Three Blue Ducks restaurant in Rosebery.

Callum Hann also started a cooking school, and Reynold Poernomo along with his brother have set up a dessert bar.

In the end, Matt Preston can be seen saying that 75% of the people who come on the show go on and change their lives.

MasterChef Australia Season 9 Will Be Mind-Blowing!

In season 9, the standard of cooking looks mind-blowing and should get better as the season goes on. The MasterChef Australia season 9 contestants have already wooed the judges with their cooking skills. Two such contestants are Callan Smith and Michelle Lukman.

Lukman stunned the judges with a mysterious-looking golden ball. The judges looked quizzical and were awestruck when they dug into the ball. They also admired the way 18-year-old Smith put his dish together and were overwhelmed by the flavors.

The judges make a tremendous effort, and there is also a lot of personal investment on their part to help the contestants achieve their dreams.

They have selected the best contestants after an extensive and tough MasterChef Australia audition process. The final contestants are selected based on their passion and genuineness.

Each one of the 24 season 9 contestants has surely impressed the judges with their cooking skills, creativity, and passion. Jess Butler and Pia Gava are another two contestants who made an effort to influence the judges. Butler presented a Japanese-inspired dessert called The Tea Ceremony, and Gava put together a simple, Italian gnocchi dish.

MasterChef Australia season 8 aired in 2016 with Elena Duggan emerging as the MasterChef winner. Matt Sinclair and Harry Foster got the first and second runner-up positions respectively.
