Julie Goodwin Revealed She Is Nervous For Masterchef

OG Masterchef queen Julie is a lil’ bit stressed about competing in the upcoming Foodies VS Favourites season.

13 years after her OG victory, the 51-year-old will step into the kitchen once again to battle it out against fellow MasterChef alums and a number of die-hard fans.

2012 winner (and current judge) Andy revealed that the ever-changing food scene has the Queen of the Kitchen rattled.

“[Julie] won 13 years ago and she’s very aware of how the food scene has changed over those 13 years, partly to do with the success of MasterChef and how it brings food into everyone’s lounge room on a nightly basis,” he told Yahoo! Lifestyle.

“But then also, Julie’s gone out into the industry, she’s really just stuck to cooking honest home food.”

If Julie is scared… BRB, binning my homemade spag bol as I wait for the MasterChef start date.
