I just don't think they would have gone with an ex contestant
Yeah that seems a strange decision to me too.

These has to be quite a number of female Masterchefs out there that aren't tv personalities yet who could be perfect for the role.

I don't necessarily think the judges need to have a tv reputation. Having a female judge with the right personality who no one has really heard of before could create a lot of intrigue with viewers as they get to know the person.

The hardest thing they will battle with is the ability to be a presenter as well. But Gary wasn't always a gun at it.

But I agree, I'd like to see nothing but proper chefs.

I actually like Maggie. I edited her on Great Aussie bake off. Admittedly that probably suits her better as she's so pleasant. Although she is a MASTER at culinary business. So she might be good at those "this is what it's like in the real world" meltdown moments. I can see it working.

Fair enough. I just don't think she fits the role of a judge on the show. Guest chef, sure!

But when you look at her "pressure tests" like her picnic challenge this year, it's not at a Masterchef level.

So they're going with two 'celebrities' with an existing brand rather than new chefs whose public persona they have to build up. That's just lazy. It'll make the final product even more bland.

Agree with comments above, this year has been mediocre. There are two MC fanatics at my place, neither was interested enough to watch the final. Who won?

Larissa won but really they should have just made the final 2. Simon wasn’t final worthy how he was there is a disgraceful illustration on how bad this year was!

Curtis I don’t mind but the other two are a waste of time.

That Beetroot entree was very ordinary. I'd expect something like that in the first week, not a final!
