The MasterChef Australia winner for 2024 will take home a life-changing $250,000 and cement themselves in history as one of the very best home cooks in the country.

They’ll join the likes of judges Poh Ling Yeow and Andy Allen in the hall of fame, and pick up the mantle (and trophy) from season 15 winner Brent Draper.

Over the years, past winners have gone on to open their own restaurants, release best-selling cookbooks, and quit their day jobs to pursue their culinary careers, proving that the beloved reality cooking show can truly change lives – and we are certain season sixteen will be no exception!

And thanks to betting agencies such as Sportsbet and TAB, fans are certain they know who will emerge victorious. Scroll on, spoilers await!

Who will win MasterChef Australia in 2024?

With the cooking competition fast coming to a close, fans are certain they’ve seen enough of what each contestant is capable of to accurately guess who will win.

28-year-old Nat Thaipun is the front-runner to take home the crown, with Sportsbet odds currently listed at $1.37.

While sales manager Sumeet Saigal was following closely behind, her shock elimination has left seafood guru Harry Butterfield in second place to potentially win with odds of $7.00.

Tasmanian butcher Josh Perry is hot on his heels with odds of $10.00 while fan favourite Savindri Perera rounds out the top five with odds of $13.00 to take out the competition.

Mimi Wong, Darrsh Clarke, and Lachlan Whittle round out the top seven with odds of $17.00, $19.00, and $51.00 respectively.

According to eliminated contestant Gillian, she has full faith in either Darrsh or Harry to take out the crown: “They’ve both grown so much in the competition,” she recently shared with New Idea.

Out of the remaining three passionate home cooks vying for the crown, odds range from between $17.00 for Mimi Wong to $51.00 for Lachlan White.
