Who win will MasterChef in 2020? The contestants tipped to take out the Back To Win title

The guessing game begins!

By Rebecca Sullivan
We're reaching the pointy end of the competition on the Back To Win season of MasterChef, with fans and bookies already placing bets on which talented contestants will take home the title this year.
Pasta queen Laura Sharrad and dessert king Reynold Poernomo are still in the competition, with some suspecting the nail-biting finale will come down to a stand-off between these two talented chefs.
But a dark horse contender has recently emerged as a possible winning chef - and she's been flying under the radar all season.
Pastry chef Emelia Jackson's odds at winning the entire season have recently increased.
According to betting agency Sportsbet, the semi finalist from the 2014 season has had her odds shaved from $8, to $3 and now they're down to just $1.37.
Back in May, the online bookmaker accepted $20,000 in bets on Emelia, raising suspicions that she could take home the title.
That means she is now the firm favourite to win behind Reynold, whose odds are at $3.50, followed by Laura Sharrad, whose odds are sitting at $4.75.

Nice guy Callum Hann is fourth in line to win at $15, followed by Reece Hignell at $34.
"Emelia has been simmering in the pack, but with the finals approaching she's been minced by punters," Sportsbet commentator Rich Hummerston said in a statement.
