In a statement last October, Andy said about his ascension to the MasterChef throne: “I participated in this competition in 2012 as a participant, somehow I won it, and then I entered the big, bad, wide world of hospitality.
‘Being asked to be a judge – and returning to MasterChef Australia – is really flattering and very special. I am happy because it means that I have done the hard work to be here. You don’t ask Joe Blow to become a judge at MasterChef Australia. “
