Jay Huxley: 'MasterChef judges prefer desserts'

Jay Huxley has accused the MasterChef judges of preferring sweet dishes.

The 31-year-old car sales manager, who was eliminated from the Australian version of the cooking reality TV show earlier this week, said that Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan's penchant for sugar affected his chances of winning the competition.

Huxley was asked to leave the show after failing to impress the judging panel with his interpretation of a Dan Hong pandan chiffon cake. Ellie Paxton-Hall and Dani Venn managed to retain their spots in the contest.

The eliminated contestant later told the Herald Sun: "Dessert, pork crackling and onion rings are the ingredients [the judges love]. If you could make a pork cake with onion rings on it, you would be set.

"[Desserts] are not something I'm particularly good at because I'm a type one diabetic so I can't eat desserts."

Huxley also revealed that he believes some of his fellow contestants will be pleased that he has left the show because he was such a strong competitor, saying: "There was certainly a vibe among the contestants that I had a strong chance of making it a fair way and I would think there's a sigh of relief from some of them now."

Shortly after his elimination, Huxley described MasterChef as a "massive commitment" but said that it was well worth the sacrifice as he had a "fantastic" time.

Last week, Andrew Henderson was eliminated from MasterChef. Since leaving, he has accused the judges of "borderline bullying".
