AS MASTERCHEF enters its final stretch, it is becoming increasingly likely this year's winner will be a woman.

The Top 10 was finalised tonight after the previously eliminated cooks returned to cook for a spot back in the competition.

After losing last night's high tea challenge, Sara, Jessie, Billie, Matthew and Rose faced elimination in the first round.

Billie used her immunity pin to opt out of the cook-off, meaning Sunshine Coast cook Ashleigh is the only cook in the Top 10 to still have a pin.

The remaining four cooks were asked to cook a delicious pie.

Jessie's undercooked pastry saw her face off against Stephen, who was the best of the returning cooks with his lobster bisque.

But Jessie held on to her position in the competition with a lobster dish of her own, which won out over Stephen's dessert that lacked the balance of acidity.

The gender balance is now four to one with only two male cooks - Matthew Hopcraft and Reynold Poernomo - remaining in the contest.

MasterChef airs Sundays to Thursdays at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
