12 household names and 12 aspiring chefs are battling it out for the silver plate on MasterChef Australia 2022.

And as things reach boiling point in the kitchen, one-by-one contestants are being eliminated from the competition, ultimately leaving one cook standing.

While the winner of MasterChef Australia: Foodies vs Favourites may have already been leaked, it hasn’t stopped us from devouring the deliciousness that is this season.

We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve cheered on all of the contestants as they prepare some of the best food of their lives.

As with every year, there are way too many cooks in the kitchen, so we must say goodbye to some seriously talented chefs.
