Masterchef Australia – Why Some Contestant’s Decided Not To Come Back
One of the mysteries of this season’s Masterchef Australia for me was why so many of the contestant’s decided not to come back for a second shot at getting back into the competition.
Thankfully Woman’s Day decided to find out why:
Adele Fragnitio has now set up a cooking school for children with intellectual disabilities and decided to knock back a chance to return to the show as she had achieved her goal.
Fiona Inglis – Fiona realised her dream of being “able to combine my passion for working with children with food”, as part of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden National Program.
Dominic Corrigan – He took a job in the corporate world after the elimination. He says he felt it was too soon to return to the show.
Sarah Carmichael – Was she asked considering she walked out? Anyway she is now pregnant with her third child.
Joanne Zalm – She had only just returned to her two daughters when the call came to return to the show, and Joanne’s dedication to her kids proved too much. “I’m a mum first.”
Carrie Johnston – She did work experience at Sydney’s Quay restaurant, Carrie set up a catering company. She has been travelling in Europe and couldn’t bear to give up the trip for a second shot.
