MasterChef is back. The best-known culinary talent show on television in Spain returns to the small screen and does so with news that will affect the viewers themselves. And all because, as TVE has announced, the test of dividing the program into two nights will be a reality from this 11th edition.
This is evidenced by Pepe Rodríguez himself to the contestants in the promotional video that the public channel has shared on social networks and that can already begin to be seen on television in which the jury warns: "Two programs will be broadcast every week and you will have to work very hard to keep your place in these kitchens”.
A variation that was already approved by the RTVE Board of Directors at the end of last year and that in turn will affect multiple aspects of the format's mechanics. The clearest is the duplication of MasterChef programming days on the public channel, but also double the number of participants.
In this way, the followers of this program will have a double portion in less time. Because that is another of the maxims that the public channel intends to apply in this 11th season, which will start its broadcasts with the aim of reducing complaints about the long hours that MasterChef occupies on the grill.
However, this is not synonymous with a good reception by audiences that continue to be declining on TVE, where, however, they have regularly focused on this format to be able to raise and scratch a few tenths that continue to resist on Prado. King.
“You have before you an opportunity to change your lives. It is now or never”, Jordi Cruz blurts out to the applicants in the promotional video, reminding that there have been many MasterChef applicants who have carved out a professional career as a result of their participation in the format.
