Fan Favourite Brendan Returns To MasterChef

What a twist!

In a major twist, Aldo was eliminated from MasterChef Australia while fan favourite Brendan made a triumphant return to the competition.

After Aldo failed to impress the judges with his butterfly prawn cooked in butter and chervil, he was essentially eliminated -- but the judges had something else in store for the contestants.

Revealing that Aldo would have one last chance to save his bacon, they brought back the 12 previously eliminated contestants, and all 13 eliminated chefs were given the chance to cook their best dish, with the winner re-joining the competition.

After battling every other eliminated contestant to reclaim his place in the kitchen, Brendan was back – and fans were ecstatic.
