RAT­INGS RISE

HOW did MasterChef go from zero to hero? Last year’s

MasterChef was a dud – cru­elled by a medi­ocre batch of con­tes­tants and a trio of judges who looked bored. This year, view­ers flocked back with rat­ings up about

dou­ble-dig­its on 2013. “MasterChef has got back to ba­sics and is no longer try­ing to ape My Kitchen Rules by ramp­ing up the per­son­al­i­ties and the clashes,” me­dia an­a­lyst

Steve Allen says. “This year’s con­tes­tants can re­ally cook and the judges are nur­tur­ing the talent in front of

them. It is very whole­some, warm and ap­proach­able – and

view­ers have re­sponded.”
