MasterChef Australia viewers are usually glued to challenges while the high-pressure cook-offs are airing on Channel Ten.
And now super-sleuth fans have revealed they have discovered the telltale signs which amateur chef will make it through to the next round.

‘You know when they get a whole backstory they getting in and that truth is stressful,’ one viewer wrote.
However, another fan believes it’s all down to the amount of ‘screen time’ given to individual contestants.
‘I’m just going to assume anyone who has less than 30 seconds screen time is getting eliminated tonight,’ they wrote.
Aaron Sanders, 34, was one of the contestants on the night whose childhood was featured on the show – which allayed many of his fan’s fears.

The MasterChef kitchen was filled with tense scenes on Tuesday’s episode.
