Season 15 will introduce a brand-new batch of 18 culinary hopefuls all vying for the coveted title of Australia's MasterChef and the grand prize of $250 000. The series promises to be an absolute food-filled feast, packed with multiple competitive challenges, twists and turns, and other scrumptious surprises.

Professional chefs and judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong, and the late Jock Zonfrillo, return with their wealth of impressive culinary expertise to taste and deliver excellent criticism.

The competition wastes no time cranking up, with the one and only Jamie Oliver arriving on day one to kick-start the series, guiding the contestants through two very special episodes. Right from the get-go, there is a game-changing secret advantage up for grabs that will alter the path of the competition for one cook.
