All-In Elimination: Unusual Flavours — All contestants other than Emelia and Reynold, who had Weekly Immunity, faced a two-round elimination challenge. In the first round, the contestants were given 75 minutes to cook a dish incorporating two different flavours of ice cream, with the only requirement being that the flavour combinations were unusual and inventive. Tessa, Reece and Khanh received rave reviews, with Laura and Sarah T. also impressing. This left Brendan, Jess, Callum, Simon and Poh, who put up the least impressive ice creams, had to cook in the second round, where they were given 60 minutes to cook a dish highlighting one of five unusual flavour pairings (lamb and coffee, basil and peanut butter, dark chocolate and soy sauce, mustard and mint, and carrot and raspberry). Simon chose to do lamb and coffee, Brendan chose to cook with peanut butter and basil, Jess chose carrot and raspberry and both Poh and Callum picked mustard and mint. Poh’s mustard and mint dish, Callum’s mustard and mint dish, and Brendan’s basil and peanut butter dish were impressive, but Jess’ carrot and raspberry dessert and Simon’s lamb and coffee dish received mixed feedback. While Simon’s lamb was cooked perfectly, the other flavours were too far down except for the coffee which dominated too much and made his dish out of balance. On the other hand, Jess chose to feature what Jock thought was the most difficult pairing: carrots and raspberries, and while she received praise for the concept of her carrot and raspberry-inspired dessert, the dish tasted more of red wine and orange than carrot and raspberry. Ultimately, the judges felt that Jess had missed the brief, and she was eliminated.

MasterChef Australia Show Summary
MasterChef Australia has a different format from that of the original British MasterChef and MasterChef Goes Large formats. 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. Entrants must be over 18 years old and their main source of income cannot come from preparing and cooking fresh food in a professional environment.
The semi-finalists then compete in several challenges that test their food knowledge and preparation skills. In Season 1, the top 50 competed until 20 were left, with the final 20 progressing to the main stage of the show. From Season 2 onwards, 24 contestants progress. The contestants will then be 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 A$250,000 in cash.
