According to Sunday Telegraph, Masterchef All Stars may be the last time the show is filmed in Sydney. Masterchef is rumoured to be off to Melbourne for 2013. (Just made BJT's day).

It was reported earlier that the building in Alexandria housing the MC kitchen is on the market, so it is not surprising that the show has to move out if the new buyer says so. The problem is to find a new suitable spot in Melbourne, as well as a multi-level residence in the city for the contestants to live during the show.
And it looks like Justin North will not appear in MC again after his restaurant group was placed into liquidation earlier this month, owing employees just under $1 million in unpaid super: http://www.dailytele...9-1226437481568

Ten must be desperate for viewers. It has five prompts for Twitter on the bottom left of screen during tonight's episode of MasterChef All-Stars. During the recently finished season four it had only one Twitter prompt just after the start of the show, as contestants entered the kitchen.
And the contestants stayed in the same MC house. This suggested they moved in after the final three of season 4 (Audra, Andy and Julia) moved out. 2009 winner Julie Goodwin told today's The Sun-Herald that she and her fellow contestants had more privileges this time around, such as access to their mobiles and computers, and they could go home on weekends.

I watched a bit of it. All seems fairly pointless.

I don't think there is any eliminations in this series. They just cook for charity. I could be wrong though. I was wrong, there looks to be an elimination this week, most likely on Wednesday or Thursday.

The Herald Sun says today that MasterChef could move to Centennial Hall at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds by the end of this year, after the Royal Melbourne Show. I think the move could backfire. Since the series began in 2009, all seasons had been filmed in a building in a quiet street in the industrial suburb of Alexandria in Sydney's south (only dedicate fans know exactly where it is) and the location gave some sense of security and privacy. I am not sure if it is a good idea to give away the location for the next series.

...or maybe by giving the location away, MC might be planning to make next years series with a bit more 'live' feel. Would be cool....


...back on the All Stars topic, just thought I'd post this from news.com.au a few years back....

...3 seasons on and, as a bit of a Zumbo fan, I can't tell you how irritating it is to hear Chris and even the freaking judges still pronounce it 'MacarOOn' instead of 'MacaRON'. :banghead:

There will be two elimination episodes this week, on Monday (tomorrow) and Wednesday (August 8). In each episode two contestants will be eliminated.
And there will be a one-off MasterClass on Friday, August 17.

This is MasterChef overkill: Ten will show the US version of MasterChef (with Gordon Ramsay as one of three judges) on 7pm Fridays from August 24. Not sure which season will be aired here.

When will be the finale?

Sunday August 19, from 6.30pm to 8pm.

I was really looking forward to All Stars but they ruined it. I turn off after third episode.

The AS contestants need to learn to be a bit more subtle when doing the obligatory product placement...tonight Callum is in the house kitchen talking to Marion, who just happens to be waving around a copy of Callums book. Like really waving it about. ;)

The Shine "eggs" countdown can also be seen on episode videos at MC officials website and the TV section of The Age and SMH websites.

Loved all stars tonight. Really like the format and it's great seeing such great dishes by all contestants.

Could not believe the contestants were asked to chop up the mystery boxes as firewood! I hope the producers have spares for next season :tongue:
