While details for season seventeen are scarce, the application does make note that filming will take place between October 2024 and April 2025 over 30 weeks, with a break over the holiday period. 

The rules of entry also make clear that applicants must be amateurs, and must not hold any professional cooking qualifications or have experience in a professional cooking environment. 

Applicants who also derive their main source of income from a professional environment (eg. restaurants, hotels, cafes, and catering) will also be disqualified.
