As the title suggests, Back To Win will not see new wannabe chefs competing for the MasterChef title. Instead, season 12 is bringing back 18 of the most memorable contestants from the 11 previous shows plus 2 from MasterChef Junior (now all grown up). These 20 now accomplished and seasoned chefs will battle it out for a second chance to win the white apron as well as $250,000 and a brand new Viking kitchen.
With heaps of gained experience under their belt since competing on MasterChef, the returning (now mostly professional) contestants are expected to create some unseen magic in the season 12 kitchen. Get ready to be baffled by cooking standards we have not experienced on the show before. 781b155fdc
