MasterChef Australia BEATS Married At First Sight as the most-watched finale episode of the year after hitting 2 million viewers

This year’s revamped series of MasterChef Australia has proven itself a recipe for success. 

The reality TV cooking show finale was the highest-rating program on Monday night, reaching a whopping 2 million viewers nationally.  

MasterChef’s ratings were tallied in two parts, the first of which earned 1.523 million metro viewers and another 477,000 regional viewers.

The second part, which saw the winner announced, gleaned 1.261 million metro viewers and 383,000 regional viewers.

MasterChef’s season 12 premiere had reached more than 1.22 million viewers in April, and the series continued to maintain a top spot in the ratings thereafter. 

Making Ten’s ratings coup even sweeter, MasterChef has also overtaken Nine’s reality show Married At First Sight as the most-watched reality show finale of 2020.

Airing in April this year, Married At First Sight reached a comparatively lower national audience of 1.95 million. 

The Voice Australia had threatened to take out the title of this years’s most-watched finale, but it fell short in the ratings on Sunday with 1.24 million national viewers.   

My Kitchen Rules: The Rivals meanwhile earned a disappointing national average of 873,000 during its finale episode back in March.

Monday’s ratings victory also reflects the undeniable popularity of MasterChef’s new judging panel Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen. 

The trio replaced outgoing judges Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris, who had previously hosted MasterChef for 11 years before being dumped in July 2019 after reports of a pay dispute. 

Melissa, Jock and Andy recently confirmed they will return to the judging panel for MasterChef’s thirteenth season.
