This year 2016, it is the 8th seasons of Master Chef Australia with our favorite judges from previous series Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris, Matt Preston. The show has started with 24 contestants. This year it’s been quite interesting because this year a participant of season six names Cecilia Vuong was given chance because at the previous season she was withdrawal from the competitions due to her brain injury. Also, this is the first time two siblings Jimmy Wong and Theresa Visintin competing with each other. From all 24 contestants, some become already favorite like Nidhi Mahajan. She is an Indian by birth. But sadly she got eliminated on 4th week. Aggression and non-stop winning intention of Miles Pritchett, a park ranger, got the potential to win these competitions. Till date 14 participants are left, as the days are passing by, the level of competitions is becoming more challenging. The last season’s winner was Billie McKay. She won prize money of $250,000, a car and a regular column in a national food magazine. This year also prize money is as same as last time with a brand new car. Everyone is giving their hard-best to win this title.
