Who would be the ideal judging team for MasterChef Australia? It’s the question on the lips of fans of the reality TV show this week in the wake of news that Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris are leaving the show.
The announcement, made just before the finale of the 11th season on Tuesday, came just days after Calombaris was found guilty of underpaying workers in his restaurant chains by nearly $8m. Network representatives, however, said that MasterChef’s original judges were leaving because parties had not been able to come to a mutually agreeable commercial arrangement.
This is excellent news. I vote for Poh Ling Yeow, Kylie Kwong and Maggie Beer. #masterchefau https://t.co/iEFtIkfWzE
