Sportsbet has made accurate predictions in the past, including for recent reality shows.

The 2024 winners of Australian Survivor and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! were correctly predicted, while winners of previous seasons of My Kitchen Rules, Big Brother Australia and The Masked Singer Australia have also been correct.

As we move further through the 2024 season each week, the rankings and odds will undoubtedly change, so watch this space for more updates.

The winner of MasterChef will be determined by the judges in the finale, with the final remaining cooks having to create difficult and intricate dishes.

Their dishes will be given scores out of ten from each judge and the contestant with the most points in the end will be given the title of this year’s MasterChef.
