The 3rd Annual Global TV Demand Awards has announced MasterChef Australia as the most in-demand reality series of 2020.

Billed as the world’s first unbiased, data-driven TV award show, the Global TV Demand Awards recognise the world’s most in-demand TV series, with the winning series determined by audience demand around the world—without judges or voting committees.

Broken down into 16 categories, the awards saw Game of Thrones take out the ‘World’s Choice’ category as the most in-demand TV series in the world.

However, in the ‘Reality’ category, Network 10’s MasterChef Australia picked up the nod as the most popular reality series by audience demand in the world.

Rick Maier, Network 10 head of drama and executive production, said: “This is a thrilling reward and acknowledgement for a terrific series of MasterChef Australia. Its international appeal has always been a source of great pride for Marty Benson, his hard-working team at Endemol Shine Australia and Network 10—showcasing Australian produce, talent and inclusivity to the world.”

The news comes as MasterChef Australia also won the AACTA Award for Best Reality Program back in November, beating popular reality shows The Amazing Race Australia, The Real Dirty Dancing and The Block.

Furthermore, last year’s TV ratings showed the finale of MasterChef Australia attracted a combined metro and regional viewership of 2.084 million.

It follows the introduction of much loved new judges Melissa Leong, Andy Allen, and Jock Zonfrillo, who took over the spots of former judges Gary Mehigan, Matt Preston, and George Calombaris.

Speaking to B&T in October, Leong said the reason for the show’s success is its celebration of food.

“That’s the true hero of the MasterChef show,” she said. “Judges will come and go, but the heart and soul of the brand is that love and celebration of food.”

Viewers can catch up on all their favourite MasterChef Australia episodes on 10 Play.
