The 11th season of MasterChef Australia has kicked off on Network Ten with one of the country’s most popular reality TV shows back to serve up more delights to tickle our televisual taste buds. The format remains the same as previous seasons, with hosts Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris back to judge dishes cooked up by the contestants as they are eliminated one by one until only one is crowned this season’s MasterChef!
As like many reality TV shows, the best Australian sports betting sites offer novelty betting markets to allow you to wager on who you think will claim the crown. These bets are a lot of fun and can add a new level of enjoyment to any reality TV series!
According to Sportsbet, the favourite for the title is 33-year old toasted sandwich connoisseur, Tim Bone who won the first immunity pin of the season. He’s offered at odds of $3.25 at Sportsbet. That’s just ahead of 24-year old HR Associate Nicole Scott who is the second pick at $4.50 at Sportsbet.
Nicole was able to survive a “pressure test” in week one, along with 36-year old Pharmacist Yossra Abouelfadl who is now $6.00 at Sportsbet to win the season. Born and raised in Egypt, Yossra will bring her strengths in Middle Eastern cuisine to the competition.
One of the dark horses may be the entertaining Derek Lau who is $7.50 at Sportsbet, but as short as $5.00 at some other sports books. Derek is a Maths wizard with a double degree in Economics and Commerce from the University of Western Australia, but his natural flair for cooking should take him a long way.
The other contestants will have their work cut out for them to beat these contenders but if you can spot a Masterchef a mile away, then jump onto Sportsbet and have a nibble at some of these markets to add some spice to your reality TV viewing!
