The contest is open to Singaporeans and permanent residents who have never worked as a professional chef.

At press time, Mediacorp did not say whether the judges from Season 1 — Bjorn Shen, the chef and owner of Artichoke; Damian D'Silva, the executive chef of Folklore; and Audra Morrice, MasterChef Australia series 4 finalist — would return.
The inaugural season of MasterChef Singapore premiered in September 2018, saw IT manager Zander Ng beating culinary student Genevieve Lee for the coveted title. Ng took home a $10,000 cash prize; a $2,000 Cold Storage shopping voucher; a book publishing deal; kitchen appliances (from Ariston, Whirlpool, Kitchenaid and Thermomix); and a three-month internship at D’Silva and Shen’s restaurants.
MasterChef Singapore Season 2 will be expanded to 10 episodes, up from last season’s eight, and is slated to premiere on meWATCH, Channel 5 and YouTube in February 2021.
