MasterChef UK 2022 Contestants

MasterChef UK 2022 Contestants

The 18th series of the biggest cooking competition MasterChef UK premiered on 23 March 2022 on BBC One. Forty-five passionate and talented hopefuls – MasterChef UK 2022 contestants – start the competition with one goal in mind – to cook their way to the pinnacle of the 2022 trophy and join the outstanding MasterChef alumni who have gone on to stellar careers in food. This year’s judges are John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

Each week for five weeks, nine home cooks arrive with both their dreams and ingredients, making their MasterChef debut in the new Audition Round. The contestants must calm their nerves to focus on the food and deliver their standout Signature Dish – showing John and Gregg who they are as a cook and how good they could become. The judges don’t witness the action in the MasterChef kitchen, but are served each dish in the new Tasting Room. Just like diners in a restaurant, they judge each contestant’s food solely on the plate that is put in front of them. John and Gregg pick their three favourite dishes, giving those cooks a well-earned MasterChef apron and immunity from cooking in the next round.

The remaining six contestants will get another chance to impress the judges and win themselves that coveted apron – by cooking another of their Signature Dishes – a sweet dish if they delivered savoury in the first round and vice versa. This time, John and Gregg will be in the kitchen witnessing their every move. The pressure is set to intense and the stakes are high as for two cooks, their MasterChef dream is over.

Having made it through to the sharp end of the competition, the Semi Finalists will need to rise to some incredible challenges. They will cook for 20 returning MasterChef contestants who have gone on to have careers in the food industry since taking part in the series.
