Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Carl Fennessy says he’s thrilled to welcome the new trio to the family.


“Jock’s culinary resume across Australia and the United Kingdom puts him in the very elite of contemporary chefs.

“Melissa’s diverse palate and incredible food knowledge will test our contestants in every way, and Andy brings with him a wealth of experience as a MasterChef Australia winner who’s become one of Australia’s hottest chefs.

“We’re excited to welcome this new generation of judges to the MasterChef kitchen,” Mr Fennessy said.

MasterChef viewers can also look forward to return appearances from favourites over the last 11 seasons, in the ‘Back to Win’ season.
