Who will be Australia’s next MasterChef? Adelaide’s very own Jessie Spiby and Rose Adam made it into the Top 10 following last night’s elimination with a twist! All 14 of the previously eliminated contestants came back into the kitchen for a chance to cook their way back into the competition!
Having been eliminated following an imperfect pie in round one, Jessie Spiby watched on as an intense battle was fought for the right to compete against her for the Top 10’s final position. After narrowly beating Kha Nguyen and Kristina Short, recently eliminated Stephen Rooney went head-to-head with Jessie in the final round. In a tight race, Jessie’s flawless dish eventually saw her stay in the competition.
Having made it to the Top 10, Jessie said,“I couldn’t be more proud or more happy to have made it into the Top 10. I have been enjoying feeling myself grow as a cook and I keep surprising myself as the competition continues. It took a while to stop thinking of myself as number ‘twenty four’ but I have now and I am so pleased to be cooking well, and I am feeling much more myself and relaxed in the kitchen…”
She said, “My first goal was to not be the first to go home, the second was to not be the second person to go home, my third goal was to reach Top 10…! So ecstatic that I made it, I never thought that I would!”
Rose was lucky enough to make it through to the Top 10 with her tasty spicy beef and lentil pie! She said, “Making it to the top 10 is such a thrill. I hadn’t expected to make this far, especially in the first few weeks of the competition however I’m so glad I kept trying and made it to this huge milestone! Top 10… Can’t believe it!”
With some of the highest standards ever seen in MasterChef Australia, judges Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston have been wowed by the Class of 2015 and are excited about the rest of the season. Ten remarkable cooks now remain and, with the coveted title of MasterChef Australia up for grabs, the stage is now set for an intense competition.
