The fifth series of the Australian cooking game show MasterChef Australia premiered Sunday 2 June on Network Ten with replays airing at 11am the following day. Graeme Stone replaced Nicholas McKay as narrator. Unlike seasons, the audition and preliminary stages were not broadcast; instead the season started with the Top 22 instead of ly used Top Other themes included Italian and Middle Eastern cuisine-focused weeks, a Kids week and weeks based on regions of the country such as the Barossa Valley and Western Australia. Along with the above changes, this season was also cast with contestant's personalities in mind above cooking ability in response to the success of the Seven Network 's rival cooking show My Kitchen Rules.
The changes were not well received by both critics and audiences, and led to disappointing ratings compared to seasons with the show sitting on an average ofBased on the of viewers and the nightly ratings, Season 5 of Masterchef was considered the worst season, with the finale being ranked only the 5th most viewed television show that night, compared to every other season of Masterchef ranking 1. It is also the only season of the show to have under 1 million viewers of the finale, and it has received the lowest nightly rankings with several episodes below the top 20 in terms of most viewed shows.
In total there were only half the of viewers from Season 4. As a result of the show's poor audience response Network Ten cancelled all spin-off versions of Masterchef Australia including: Junior Masterchef and Masterchef: The Professionals as well as live events such as Masterchef Live and Masterchef Dining in order to focus on "a new, fresh version in that will appeal to the loyal MasterChef fans as well as new viewers" according to Ten's chief programming officer, Beverley McGarvey. Contestants working Masterchef australia contestants dating pairs choosing the Heaven Masterchef australia contestants dating would have 90 minutes to create a dish from 9 heavenly ingredients as chosen by the judges, while those choosing 'Hell' would have three hours plus a recipe to create one of the hardest dishes from past seasons.
Four pairs chose 'Hell' and were Masterchef australia contestants dating with a Zumbo Macaroon Tower, featuring over a hundred macaroons flavoured with beetroot and olive. Liliana who had made a Macaron Tower for her sons birthday and Samira produced the dish of the day, and while Lynton's mistake of adding the wrong food coloring meant he and Neha only presented one type of macaroon for judging; they just avoided elimination for how perfect that one type were.
In the end, it was two teams who chose 'Heaven' that found themselves in elimination: Daniel and Kelty who overcomplicated a dish that could have taken 15 minutes to prepare, and Lucy and Pip who made the decision to serve their premium wagyu beef with chunks of butter overpowering the simple flavours of the dish.
The first round saw them recreating the Masterchef australia contestants dating dish of Steak Tartare with Pumpernickel Biscuit with a recipe given for the biscuit onlywith the best two dishes saving their contestants from the elimination round. Lucy's decision to add lemon juice early, and thus 'cooking' the raw beef for too long, and Pip's failure to plate up the biscuit paired with her overly minced meat dropped them into the bottom two.
Despite Lucy and Pip having varying experience with desserts, they were both on schedule and executed the elements of the dessert well. The difference in dishes came down to the meringue, Pip's over-aerated topping sealing a close elimination.
The remaining 13 contestants faced a seven-course service challenge based around the seven deadly sins. Cooking in two teams for 70 university students, they had to de and cook seven courses in two hours based around the same core ingredient ifying one of the sins envy, lust, sloth, etc. The Blue Team struggled under Neha's leadership with the strong personalities of Jules, Kelty and Noelene butting he with her over the menu's direction. The Red Team, with one less member, thrived under Rishi's leadership but faced some struggles with preparation and limited kitchen supplies. Ultimately, the judges were impressed with standout dishes from each team leading to a close decision.
The Red Team just made it over the line with a chilli dish that, while overly spicy, better embodied the feeling of wrath; Blue were again sent to elimination. The losing contestants from the challenge were given two hours to produce a dish that personified their position: a Last Supper showcasing their skills and beliefs about food. With no limits of ingredients or creativity, contestants thrived and each successive dish wowed the judges. In the end, Lilliana's Four Layer Birthday Cake was singled out for, though well made and Masterchef australia contestants dating the essence of the challenge, being not up to the same standard as the other contestants' dishes and she tearfully bid goodbye to the MasterChef kitchen.
In this Masterchef australia contestants dating Box Challenge, contestants were tasked with re-inventing three fast food favourites: fried chicken, souvlaki and burger-with-the-lot. Working in groups of three, they had only as much time as it took Matt Preston to go out and buy all three items. With each contestant making one of the three dishes, they had varying success with some overly ambitious while others playing it overly safe.
The judges found fault with at least one dish in each team, and though Emma's burger lacked all the necessary elements and Daniel's souvlaki meat was poorly cooked, it was Jules' inedible Thai-style burger with a poorly realised bun made of rice and Samira's bland and under-thought souvlaki that left them plus teammate Rishi facing elimination.
In an Elimination Challenge with a twist, Rishi, Jules and Samira faced the first ever ingredients Masterchef australia contestants dating. With three lots of ingredients a protein, a dairy ingredient and a vegetable element to 'purchase', they could bid with their cooking time in five-minute increments.
With only 90 minutes of cooking time initially, they quickly bid away their time trying to win their preferred ingredients and ultimately, Rishi was left with 60 minutes, Samira 50 minutes and Jules only 30 minutes. Rishi with plenty of time and well-matched ingredients, wowed the judges with his rabbit dish. Samira and Jules both struggled with their oddly matched ingredients and limited time and both dishes came under scrutiny for their technical flaws.
And while Samira served some very under-cooked lamb, it was Jules' bland and mismatched dish of Buttered Crawfish with Vinaigrette and Yoghurt that sealed her elimination from the competition. With three hours on the clock they raced to three checkpoints and competed in mini challenges with the winner of each getting to pick from pairs of key ingredients.
At the first challenge, the Blue Team were first to crush six Masterchef australia contestants dating of grape juice and picked sourdough as their bread, leaving Red with multigrain. On the way to the second challenge the Red Team got repeatedly lost and Blue easily won the next two challenges making the perfect omelette and milking a goat choosing chicken and sebago potatoes Red left with turkey and kipfler potatoes and racing back to Red Hill Estate on the Mornington Peninsula with 90 minutes left to cook.
The Red Team's poor cost them valuable time with less than one hour left when they arrived, but they made up time fast in preparation and had their dish of Turkey Club with Roast Vegetable Crisps ready first. What looked like a simple dish at first had many contestants confounded at its actual difficulty, which included making brioche and sausages from scratch. The pressure of time and delicate nature of bringing together all the components got to most contestants, but Rishi again showed the judges his skill with the dish of the day.
In the end, it came down to Samira whose religious beliefs meant she couldn't taste most of her dish's elements and Kelty whilst his dish had many technical flaws, he had perfectly made the brioche. Kelty was saved and Samira eliminated. With the Top 10 safe from elimination for the week and an immunity pin up for grabs, the contestants first competed in a skills test: crushing a Chinese five-spice mix in a mortar and pestle.
Christina was the slowest to finish and lost her chance at immunity for the week. In the second round, nine of the twelve eliminated contestants returned to cook for their place back in the competition. The worst two dishes would lose their makers a shot at immunity for the Top 10 or a spot back in the competition. The remaining seven Masterchef australia contestants dating of two competed in a test of planning, synchronicity and communication: without seeing or tasting each other's food they had to produce exactly the same dish.
Dishes were judged on their similarities in taste and presentation, with the least identical losing their makers the chance at immunity or a place back in the competition. Being unable to work collaboratively with their partner caused some key missteps in a of teams, with the smallest difference in preparation such as the type of blender used leading to big differences in final product. Ultimately, Pip and Daniel paid the price for not using their planning time efficiently after disagreeing on their dish's initial direction and although the judges declared Pip's dish one of the best, Daniel's proved too dissimilar and they fell out of the running for the week's reward.
With pairs working together in teams of four, each member had 45 minutes plus changeover time to pass on information to prepare the various precise elements while working in a cold store at -2 degrees Celsius. The Blue Team, headed by Neha with Nicky, Vern and Xavier fell behind early but recovered brilliantly to almost perfectly replicate the dish, wowing the judges. But in the end it came down to taste and because Red's Kirsch Semifreddo had separated and their overall taste wasn't as good as Yellow's, Noelene, Dan, Kelty and Jules dropped out on the running for the week's prize.
With 90 minutes on the clock, each pair had to produce one sweet and one savoury dish, the winners receiving either a ticket back into the competition or for the current contestant an immunity pin. With so much on the line, teams scrambled to develop dishes which championed butter as an ingredient. Lynton and Nicky struggled to produce the sweet dishes for their teams, and despite Lilliana's dish winning dish of the day and rave reviews from all three judges, Lynton's was judged as the worst and they, as well as Nicky and Vern were declared out of the running.
Samira won herself a place back in the competition while Rishi won immunity. The remaining eleven contestants faced an empty Mystery Box and were tasked with filling it with ingredients they loved, plus one 'hard to love' ingredient. In a further twist, they had to swap boxes with another contestant of their choice although Rishi was luckily left with his own ingredientsforcing some hasty re-evaluations.
This curve ball rattled some contestants, including Vern whose dessert Mystery Box put him out of his comfort zone and landed him in the bottom three. ing him were Neha whose Pavlova contained too much cornflour and Rishi, who despite having the advantage produced a mediocre overcooked pasta dish. With Rishi choosing to play his immunity pin only days after he won itNoelene as the fourth worst performer from the challenge ed Neha and Vern in a Pressure Test set by Kirsten Tibbles: the Lourous Cake.
With an extremely technical, five- recipe it was crucial to get each stage right. While a misstep with dessert landed him in elimination, Vern impressed with a near flawless dish. And while both Noelene and Neha had some problems in preparation they recovered well to also impress the judges and Tibbles. But it was an unfortunate piece of baking paper left in her cake that was enough to seal Neha's elimination. The Top 10 contestants faced a team challenge: to cook a main and a dessert for 50 couples on a first date.
Complicating matters, each contestant randomly chose an mystery ingredient that had to feature in their dishes, five desirable such as red wine and figs and five not usually associated with date night food such as garlic and sardines. Lucy's Blue Team luckily ended up with four of the five desirable ingredients, leaving Kelty's Red Team to get creative with their less typical date food. While the Blues faced some missteps in prep time a mistake in ordering their protein set them back ificantlyRed had disharmony as team members disagreed with the direction of their dishes.
In the end, both teams impressed with their mains and faced disappointment with melted ice cream desserts, but it was Red's shared Meze Platter which showed impressive technique and fit the challenge brief that won them the challenge, sending the entire Blue Team into elimination. After losing in the challenge, Lucy, Daniel, Christina, Lynton and Vern faced a breakfast service challenge in Gary Mehigan's restaurant the Maribyrnong Boathouse. Each contestant had to de a modern breakfast dish with 90 minutes of prep time before one hour of service.
With this being the first service challenge for most of them plus Lynton's first elimination challengethe time constraints and pressure of a commercial kitchen was a steep learning curve. Lynton had to think on his feet as his dish was re-imagined twice during prep, but he recovered well to have one of the most impressive dishes Daniel's Sweet Potato Croquettes getting dish of the dayand Lucy's muesli, while simple, was praised for being a cleverly chosen, delicious dish.
Both Christina and Vern had dishes sent back Christina both over- and under-cooked her baked eggs, while Vern's smoked trout pizza contained some bonesand found themselves in the bottom two, with Vern the one to leave in a close result. The teams were asked to re-create Heston's classic Royal truffle. Noelene and Emma struggled in the blue team. Blue team's base was too runny so it came down to the red and yellow teams.
Kelty misread the recipe and didn't add enough gelatine to the jellies. Finally yellow team won the challenge as all their components were perfect. The winning Masterchef australia contestants dating gets a shot at immunity. The winning team from last night's pressure test gets a shot at immunity. Each contestant gets 90 minutes to cook a starter Danielmain course Christina and dessert Rishi.
Heston gets 90 minutes to cook all the three courses. It was a blind tasting. Daniel had the entree and eggs, Christina had main and wine, and Rishi had dessert and milk. Daniel and Christina's course were on par with Heston's and it came to very tiny details. Rishi's dessert was a disaster. Heston's dish was declared a winner in all three courses, so none of the contestants won the immunity pin.
However, it was Masterchef australia contestants dating who was adjudged the best among the three contestants, so he gets to skip the next challenge and goes directly to the top 8. The challenge was to prepare a Medieval feast, which included a range of poultry and game birds along with Heston's garden herb garden with some garnishes. Masterchef australia contestants dating blue captured the essence of medieval theme when compared to the red team Masterchef australia contestants dating all their dishes were cooked to perfection; however blue team lost the challenge as their turkey was raw and the judges couldn't taste it.
Red team won the challenge and blue team was put into elimination. The Elimination Challenge required contestants to 'Hestonise' a dish of their choice with innovation in technique and use of ingredients. Drawing on their experiences during the week, all four managed to exceed expectations with their dishes. Rishi plated sweet Indian-Chinese dumplings with a soy sauce caramel and dry ice tea; Kelty offered up a deconstructed hot toddy with liquid nitrogen frozen ice-cream at the table; Samira changed her initial idea of a volcano to serve Znoud al-Sett sweet Middle-Eastern rolls with the flavours echoed in a rose and orange blossom scented dry ice sheesha prelude.
Noelene, who served curried fish he with clumsily frozen curry 'jellies', was eliminated. It was announced to the contestants that the following week, they would travel to Dubai for an international food experience, with Christina and Daniel earning business class tickets as a reward for their performances in Heston week. In a budget of dirhamMasterchef australia contestants dating teams sourced their ingredients from the local market and then travelled by camel to the cooksite at Al-Waha. All pairs overcame problems faced in the cooking process unfamiliar ovens, mistaken and 'misplaced' ingredients to plate up and impress the guests and judges, but Blue's chicken platter was declared the Masterchef australia contestants dating leader for its innovative and 'perfect' selection of dishes, including chicken cooked two ways, a pilaf, an array of dips, and rose-and- halva accented Masterchef australia contestants dating.
With the remaining three pairs facing elimination, Daniel and Emma won themselves first-class tickets to Paris for a culinary walking tour with Matt Preston. Masterchef australia contestants dating menu comprised a selection of high-quality entrees, mains and desserts, from which the contestants picked their dish in the order ased them after drawing coins from a 'treasure chest'.
Lynton picked the beef tenderloin main due to his familiarity with the ingredient, but struggled through prep and failed to prepare and serve the beef cheek croquette element of his dish. Christina, choosing the crab entree, also failed to use her prep time efficiently but recovered to plate up all the required components of her dish, but was faulted for having been too heavy-handed with her mashed potatoes.
Samira did well with her quail entree, and Kelty and Lucy, both having picked desserts, also received generous praise. Despite getting the last pick and the prep-heavy fish main, Rishi impressed the judges with his prep and execution of the dish.
Christina and Lynton were chosen as the worst of the best, but on of the general quality of the cooking and service from all contestants and the unprecedented degree of disagreement among the judges regarding the elimination, it was revealed that neither would be sent home. The Top 8 were tasked with cooking and delivering takeaway lunch orders to office workers scattered around Melbourne CBD. Each team had to cook one entree and two mains with accompanying sides. The teams and the cuisine they had to cook were determined by picking a flag at random, with the blues getting Mexican and the reds getting Chinese.
The first orders were to start calling in 90 minutes into the challenge leaving each team 2 hours to deliver the food. Once in the kitchen the blues nominated Christina to be captain while Emma captained the reds. Once preparation started, each team questioned the of people they must prep for and both estimated for This turned out to be a major challenge for both teams with the blue team needing to double their portions of their soft shell tacos with less than 10 minutes before the first orders came through and Masterchef australia contestants dating red team having to shrink their portions of prawn wontons from three to two in order to have time to finish them.
Once the first orders came through, both teams struggled to pack the food, manage the phone and prep for future orders. Upon returning for the second order the blue team decided to re-plate their tacos upon complaints from some of the customers, which turned out to be a success with the customers the second time round. Once the reds returned for their second order they realised Samira had added up the of wontons incorrectly for the second order and were forced to leave without them.Masterchef australia contestants dating
