MasterChef SPOILER: Producer reveals the ‘gut-wrenching’ moment a contestant is forced to stop cooking as they break down in tears during new season

The new season of MasterChef Australia is returning to screens on Monday night.

And ahead of its premiere, executive producer Marty Benson has revealed the ‘gut-wrenching’ moment a contestant was forced to stop cooking during a challenge.

In a teaser for the show, one participant breaks down in tears and says: ‘I can’t cook, I’ve just got nothing left.’

Mr Benson told news.com.au on Monday: ‘There’s a moment in the series, I would say it’s the seminal moment in the series, where something happens with a contestant that’s never happened in my time.’

‘It’s extremely gut-wrenching.’ 

He also explained that the contestants this year are less experienced and ‘find their way through the competition’.

‘Something that we experienced last season on ‘Back To Win’, the contestants were all brilliant but they all had their own brand. They knew what they were,’ he said.

‘That’s a big difference this year. Our contestants are really finding their way throughout the competition. I hate to use this term but they’re going on a journey.’

It comes after judge Jock Zonfrillo said the dishes that are served up on the new season are beyond restaurant quality.

‘While they may well be home cooks, as the season is progressing we’re seeing dishes that I’d be proud to have on my menu,’ he said in a trailer for the show.

Meanwhile, Andy Allen said: ‘2020 was a year where people have really gone, ‘What am I doing with my life?’ And I think that has brought these contestants to this place.’

‘People have decided and realised, if not now, when?’ added Melissa Leong.

In the video, Jock went on to reveal that the decision to join MasterChef was a make or break situation for many of the contestants.

‘They’re at a stage in their life where they know what they want to do. They’ve turned their life upside down to do this,’ he explained.

MasterChef Australia returns Monday at 7.30pm on Channel 10
