Many phrases have become synonymous with MasterChef Australia, and fans have scrounged them together to cook up a cheeky lil’ drinking game to play while watching the show.

Taking to the MasterChefAU page on Reddit, one user posted a thread titled “Drinking game” before launching into said game’s rules.

What are the fan-made rules of the MasterChef Australia drinking game?

“When Savi mentions Sri Lanka. When Lachlan mentions his daughter. When JC bangs the table. When Alex‘s laugh seems just a liiiittle bit scary. When you swear you heard Sofia lisping,” the Redditor highlighted the moments that should motivate players to drink.

It wasn’t long before other MasterChef fans began garnishing the game with their own prompts.

“When JC bangs the table, say superb AND fantastique in a single judging,” one viewer added.

Andy [Allen] struggles with something being spicy,” another suggested, before others piped up with common phrases from the judges.
