Grab onto your aprons, because MasterChef Singapore is FINALLY happening.
Good things come to those who wait
With the incredible culinary talent in Singapore, it seems like the show’s producers have decided that our food paradise is worth an entire season.
You can check out the extremely tantalising teaser video here. More deets about the show and how you can apply after the jump.
When’s the show going to air?
As the show is still in its casting stages, we can only confirm that the MasterChef team will probably begin filming in end-April.
This means that MasterChef Singapore may only air sometime around late 2018 to early 2019.
There’s also no confirmation yet on who the judges are going to be.
We’re still crossing our fingers that fiery Gordon Ramsey will be involved somehow.
Big ol’ softie on the inside
Or you know, we’re totally fine with funny guy Gary Mehigan, long-time judge of MasterChef Australia too.
Don’t be salty if I’m not judging okay?
Well, there’s only one way to find out for sure right now. Attend the casting call and make the Top 20 as a show participant of course.
Criteria for entry
If your homemade lontong brings all the boys to your yard, you’ll probably want to answer this casting call.
Of course, you’ll have to fit the following criteria first:
- Singaporean citizen or Permanent Resident above 18.
- Cannot work as a professional chef.
- Have no previous professional or semi-professional kitchen experience.
- Have no formal tertiary or professional catering qualifications from the past 10 years.
- Main source of income cannot come from preparing and cooking fresh food professionally (restaurant, hotels, canteens, catering)
- You must be available for filming for up to 4 weeks, beginning 26 April 2018.
Though the criteria’s pretty strict, we’re extremely psyched that Singapore’s going to have the chance to crown her best home-cook.
Pro Tips for participants
MasterChef producers will be looking out for these qualities in their would-be participants:
- Love of food
- Desire to change your life
Applications will close at midnight on 25 March 2018. So get cracking on signing up now if you’re interested.
MasterChef’s close ties with Singapore
The first season of MasterChef Asia saw three Singaporeans participating — Sandrian Tan, Lennard Yeong and lawyer Woo Wai Leong who eventually bagged first place.
Let’s cook up another win for Singapore
Owner of 2AM Dessert Bar, Janice Wong is also a regular guest chef in MasterChef Australia and is famed for her mindblowing dessert art.
Here’s her classic Cassis Plum dessert that gave contestants a run for their money in Season 7 of MasterChef Australia.
Instead of a guest chef, why not make Ms Wong a judge already?
Hungry for victory?
All the best to the talented home cooks who are planning on applying.
We can’t wait to find out which one of your black aprons will remain till the very end.
For the rest of us ravenous MasterChef fans, get ready to devour the latest season of this nail-biting show hosted right here in Singapore.
