Fans may not have seen the last of the additional jury members from MasterChef Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan.
The former ten stars, who reportedly jumped the ship to rival network Seven, may stand in line to join Manu Feildel and Pete Evans in a new version of My Kitchen Rules next year.
According to The Australian on Monday, Matt and Gary will organize the second of two MKR seasons that will appear at the end of 2020 as part of a new & # 39; multi-year & # 39; contract with Seven.
Will Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan join MKR? The VERY convincing theory that two MasterChef judges join Manu Feildel and Pete Evans as the judges of Seven & # 39; s flagship cooking reality show
The publication claims that Matt and Gary saw seven bosses earlier this month and that, a few days later, seven boss Evan Wilkes had a & # 39; sudden briefing & # 39; called staff working on MKR for a & # 39; delay in filming & # 39; to announce.
During this meeting, Mr. Wilkes reportedly informed the MKR crew that series 12 filming was postponed from December 2019 to February next year.
This & # 39; delay & # 39; may have to do with the supposed acquisition of Matt and Gary, whose contracts with Ten they may have concluded until the end of this year.

Regarding the fate of current MKR judges Manu and Pete, the Australian reports that the couple will remain in the supporting role.
These reports reflect recent claims that Channel Seven bosses Matt and Gary have searched for a new cooking show – without their former co-star George Calombaris.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported earlier this month that the newly appointed Seven West Media chief executive, James Warburton, is only interested in signing two of the three Channel Ten stars for a mysterious new series to be launched next year.

Unnamed sources claimed that seven bosses were not interested in the fight against Chief George, who was hit with a $ 200,000 fine for underpaying 515 employees between 2011 and 2017, with nearly $ 8 million in July.
In response to the rumors, a representative for Gary told the Sydney Morning Herald last month: & (39) There is a lot of interest and discussion both within Australia and internationally, but no deals have been closed. & # 39;
A representative from Matt also claimed that he was not currently in discussion: & # 39; International opportunities are our priority and there are currently a number of major international opportunities on the table & # 39 ;.

It is amid reports that MKR is going to be overhauled next year, with many of the previous show participants having recently seen film scenes for the coming season.
According to a report from women's Day magazine, the new format will be inspired by other reality shows such as Married At First Sight, Survivor and Big Brother.
But Channel Seven has retained every change to the show's formula, it's all just & # 39; speculation & # 39; at this stage. & # 39;

& # 39; We haven't made any announcements about the new MKR season, it's all speculation & # 39 ;, a Seven spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia in response to the Woman & # 39; s Day article.
& # 39; I do not expect any statement to be made until our Upfronts in October. & # 39;
The rumor wake-up comes after MKR was ravaged in the ratings earlier this year by the direct competitor, Channel Nine & Married At First Sight.
According to TV Tonight in March, MKR drew at least only 662,000 metrophoto views compared to 1.41 million MAFS.
