Tuesday it was reported that Poh Ling Yeow, Maggie Beer and Curtis Stone will take over as three new jury members from MasterChef.
And while the focus has been put on stopping George Calombaris, Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan, it's easy to forget the original face of the show in 2009.
The former journalist, 45, only appeared in season 1, with Network Ten & # 39; s when head programmer David Mott announced her departure in September 2009.
Remember me? The forgotten host of MasterChef Australia Sarah Wilson [pictured with Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston], was the original face of the show in 2009
Prior to the show's debut in April 2009, David Mott described Sarah as a & # 39; natural host & # 39; for the cooking juggernaut.
& # 39; Sarah Wilson has an addictive passion for food and wine and a vibrant on-screen presence that makes her a natural host to MasterChef Australia, & # 39; he said at the time.
& # 39; We have no doubt that Australian viewers will hug her. & # 39;
However, it became clear during the season that the outgoing personalities of co-hosts George, Matt, and Gary insisted that there should not be a fourth co-host.
Short-term stint: the former journalist, 45, only appeared in season one, with Network Ten & # 39; s when head programmer David Mott announced her departure in September 2009
David Knox from industry website TV Tonight told News.com.au that while Sarah & # 39; perfectly beautiful & # 39; wash, she & # 39; cousins & # 39; became.
& # 39; Sarah Wilson was perfectly beautiful in what was essentially a role of traffic cop, but 10 thought it was supportive of the format, & # 39; he told the outlet.
& # 39; Wilson stayed behind to do little more than read the autocue. Much of the hosting fell into the hands of Gary Mehigan, something that would never have happened if other personalities had been in the role. & # 39;
By September 2009, prior to the debut of spin-off Celebrity MasterChef that month, Network 10 announced Sarah & # 39; s leaving the franchise.
& # 39; This decision was difficult to make, but it became clear that the correct role for Sarah was not feasible without drastically changing the format, & # 39; said David Mott at the time in a statement.
Not really good: David Knox of TV site Tonight told news.com.au that although Sarah & # 39; perfectly beautiful & # 39; was, she & # 39; supporting & # 39; became
& # 39; Her capacities weighed more than her duties in the show, & # 39; he added. & # 39; All parties agree that another series that limits its input and expertise was not the best outcome. & # 39;
In an excerpt from her book & # 39; first, we make the beeast beautiful & # 39; printed in the Australian Women & # 39; s Weekly in 2017, Sarah revealed what was happening behind the scenes.
Sarah told the magazine that she shared a dressing room for a shipping container with the three male jury members, and was & # 39; forced & # 39; in a corset dress making her bust bulky & # 39; bulging & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The producers came to the dressing room to announce another uncompromising series of instructions that would reduce me to an empty head, & # 39; she wrote in a chapter.

Before she let go of her frustrations on a physical issue, she said she shut up & # 39; with producers for what they saw as people & # 39; too far & # 39; pushing, saying that they are & # 39; a broom in a ridiculous dress with a wig & # 39; felt in a loud burst.
& # 39; Then – I remember seeing myself in slow motion – I hit the wall of the metal sea container. I broke two knuckles, & she said and noticed she left the show the next day.
Sarah later confessed that she was & # 39; narrowed & # 39; felt in her role, in an interview with Stellar magazine in April 2018.
& # 39; I'm almost turned inside out with creative boredom, to be honest, & # 39; she said. & # 39; By the time I stopped, the show was a hit and the people around me thought I was crazy, but it was not good for me to continue doing. & # 39;
After her time at MasterChef, Sarah launched the I Quit Sugar cookbook and health program. However, she closed the company in 2018.
