Reuben Riffel replaces Andrew Atkinson as judge in M-Net's 3rd season of MasterChef South Africa.
Reuben Riffel is replacing Andrew Atkinson as the third judge in the third upcoming season of MasterChef South Africa on M-Net.
Andrew Atkinson who was a judge for the first two seasons of MasterChef South Africa took the job as executive chef in a Johannesburg hotel and will no longer work on the local version of the amateur chef seeking show on the pay-TV broadcaster.
M-Net says Andrew Atkinson "can no longer commit himself to the busy schedule of the filming of the series".
The Franchhoek chef Reuben Riffel who made a guest appearance during the first season of the show, will now take over Andrew Atkinson' spot, saying that he hopes "to make a positive contribution to the show".
