"We are delighted that MasterChef has surpassed the 50 adaptation milestone," said Shine International CEO Nadine Nohr in a statement. "The scalable and adaptable nature of the format has obviously been a big part of its success; however, it's the essence of the show that is truly distinctive: the story of ordinary lives being changed through the realization of a dream via a unique combination of challenges and values." 

Next week,  MasterChef will land in Cannes for a MIPCOM showcase, where restaurateur and U.S. and Italian show judge Joe Bastianich will be joined on a panel by CEOs from across Shine's international outposts.
