The production of Nova TV began with an audition for the popular MasterChef.
According to Nova TV, the new season will bring many surprises. MasterChef also introduced the new jury members, who will pass on their knowledge and love of cooking to the candidates, while also allowing them to face many challenges. These challenges started during the audition for the new season. Many people awakened their willingness to cook during this period, as can be seen from the 2000 applications received, but only 100 candidates had the opportunity to audition and show themselves and their talents.
Three different roles, the three chefs who will guide us through the new season of MasterChef are: Melkior Bašić, Damir Tomljanović and Stjepan Vukadin.
