Canadian native and Sydney Convicts rugby union club member Kevin Perry is the first contestant to make it through to the top 24 of this season of Channel Ten’s MasterChef.

Perry, whose partner is fellow Canadian Convict Erik Denison, made it through thanks to his signature cider chicken with maple syrup base dish.

Perry said his dream was to “improve the types and quality of food sold at sports stadiums in Australia,” but until then, you can see him on screens 7pm weeknights and 7.30pm Sundays doing battle for the MasterChef title.
