MasterChef Australia: Meet the spouses of the final six

MasterChef: Back to Win is down to its final six.

And while fans are already supporting their favourites, the chefs are no doubt getting a boost from their biggest cheerleaders – their loved ones.

Daily Mail Australia looks at the partners behind the remaining contenders, Laura Sharrad, Callum Hann, Reece Hignell, Emelia Jackson, Reynold Poernomo and Poh Ling Yeow.

Poh, who was MasterChef’s first runner-up way back in 2009, is married to actor Jono Bennett.

The 47-year-old met Jono while she was a contestant on the cooking series and he was working behind the scenes as a runner.

They started dating after the finale, and married five years later in 2014.

Laura, who was the runner-up in the 2014 season, is married to Max Sharrad. 

The chefs tied the knot in 2018 after working together in the kitchen at Orana, the restaurant owned by MasterChef judge Jock Zonfrillo.

Laura and Max now run their own business, NIDO Bar and Pasta.

Reece, 30, has been dating Dene Whitfield for almost six years.

Dene was by his partner’s side during the 2018 season of the show.

When asked in April if they planned to marry, Reece said: ‘Well, I would like to say an engagement is on the cards, however I still haven’t been asked! I am waiting.’

Reynold, who first appeared in the 2015 season, celebrated three years with his girlfriend, Chelia Dinata, in February.

The 26-year-old leads a lavish life when he’s not whipping up desserts, and has travelled to several exotic destinations with his partner.

Callum, the runner-up from the 2010 season, is a doting husband to wife Crystal Jagger, whom he married in 2018.

The couple welcomed their daughter, Elle Madeleine Hann, in October last year.

Little is known about Emelia’s relationship with Craig Gersbach, hence why MasterChef fans call him the ‘secret boyfriend’.

The 30-year-old, who was originally on season six in 2014, rarely posts pictures of Craig to Instagram, nor does she name or tag him when she does. 

Emelia first shared a selfie with her partner to Facebook in July 2018.

A total of 24 returning contestants joined the 2020 season in pursuit of redemption.

The winner of MasterChef: Back to Win will take home a $250,000 cash prize.
