the new edition of the cooking show premieres (probably) after Easter

RTVE has presented today, like every year at this time, the premiere of the new season of MasterChefwith the hook that it will be the show’s 10th anniversary. They have not specified the datebut they assure that it will be “very soon” and we assume that they will take over from ‘Masters of Sewing’ after Easter.

It’s actually nine years, since the first season premiered in April 2013, but it will be this the tenth edition the talent show culinary veteran and whose success seems far from exhausted, at least in terms of impact on networks and media interestand in economic benefits through the large catalog of derived products and services.

But this is the tenth anniversary, and, said Rey, “it is a very special season for us in which we have tried not to disappoint”.

In addition to being the edition of the reunions, Rey has baptized it as the one of “second chances” and “first times”, with a casting that already promises us the typical moments of embarrassment and even more tears: “a Guipozcoan who looks like the son of Karra Elejalde in ‘Ocho surnames vascos'”; a man from Madrid who has opened several restaurants with little success”; “a Belgian from Murcia who is a mega fan of Eurovision and Harry Potter who sings like angels”).
