  1. Very disappointed to see Emelia and Laura going to finals
    This is fudging
    Reynold is by far the best
    Sad the new 3 judges are cheats
    Emelia and Laura are very ordinary cooks shame

  2. after watching S12 MC AU i know its all a gimmick, there are no real winners, there is no way laura is anywhere near being a great chef, she cooked nothing but safe dishes, nothing extortionary, nothing exotic, always something a sou chef can cook blindfolded. her resturant will always be a 1-2 star nothing higher than that.
    as for reynolds i dont trust him at all after the reynolds homophobic scandal, once a hater always a hater, many world leaders proved that.
    The ones that should had been in the last leg of this fake competition should been brendan, callum, pho, and reece. I will not finish watching this fake stuff and not looking forward to any more seasons of masterchef, this is not masterchef more like dumbochef. one last thing why dont masterchef ever cook Native Indian food? like buffalo stew, Indian tacos, frybread with fresh berry jam, make some tasty jerky using elk, venison, buffalo. oh yea thats right they know nothing about Native Indian foods.

    • Yes Reynold must be the winner
      Emelia doesn’t deserve it
      I noticed that the results is fixed
      Sad to see Emrlia and Laura win
      Very mediocre cooks

  3. Reynold and Emilia were by far the 2 best in this Competition. I dare say Reynold the most talented of all. He has the potential of being a true Giant in his field. A Final between them would be a fitting one. Laura, who evidently rode on simple and safe dishes, was the party spoiler as far as a cracker of a Final goes. Po was the most over-rated and over pampered chef in this entire competition. The way the judges and the producers gave her soft comments and screen time, despite her mostly ‘ I am Clueless’ demeanor was the main flaw in an overall good season. Among the Judges, Jock was the best by far. Andy as too repetitive in his comments.

  4. Reynold was the most deserving contestant he was creative risk taker and would create magic ….Laura on the other hand always made simple dishes was not at all an efficient contender to be even in the top 5 ….Dnt know why judges praised Laura n emilias dishes Who always stuck with her strong side ie making pastry whereas other contestants like Callum ,Poh , Sarah ,Jess where the top 5 contenders …for us the real winner is Reynold !!!!

  5. Reynold eliminated!!! No way!! Laura might be a cook but doesn’t deserve to be in top5. She is not that creative , sticks to safe dishes! I was rooting for Reynold. Even Emelia, though a better cook than Emilia is not a risk taker like Reynold or Callum! I don’t want to watch d finals now.

  6. Devastated by the fact Reynold and Callum got eliminated, I was totally rooting for these two to be on top two.
    Anyway not so pumped with these two in the finale, I stopped watching right after Reece got eliminated.

    • Masterchef australia 12 is pre decided. They wanted to bring Laura to finale,so eliminated Callum & then now Reynold. Laura through our crying & making emotional judges has come to final. It’s injustice to Reynold whose comparision Laura n0thing. It’s like last year Larrisa ‘s win & this year Laura. Done for publicity. We all loosing interest in master Chef Australia. We are regular viewers from season 1.totally disappointing.

  7. Callum is an innovative & risk-taking contestant on MasterChef compared to Laura who plays safe with known dishes. Still, Callum eliminated. We expect fair, non-biased judgment in MasterChef Australia Finals. Reynold & Emelia both deserve to be winner. Thanks
