The odds that one of four apparently disillusioned lawyers cooking it out for the top spot on MasterChef will actually win the competition are beginning to narrow.

With only 15 contestants left on the reality show, there is more than a 25 per cent chance that a disgruntled lawyer - or a law student - will walk away with the title of Australia's next MasterChef.

And it seems that all of the legal eagle contestants are desperate to win and have the chance to ditch their legal careers to find "something better".

Adelaide lawyer Adam Liaw reveals on the show's website that he has left his job as a media lawyer in Tokyo to pursue his dream of opening a Japanese café.

"If you can turn your hobby into your job, why not?" says Liaw in his MasterChef bio.

"I've just left my job in Japan and I know that if something was to come from being on the show, I would move back to Australia."

Victorian construction and major projects lawyer Claire Winton Burn - one of the favourites to take out the title - also appears to have her sights set on changing careers.

"You're better off following a career you're absolutely passionate about, rather than doing something that you like but don't love. Life is too short," she says on the MasterChef website.

Lander & Rogers lawyer Peter Kritikides also seems to be using the show as a platform into a life as a celebrity chef, stating in his bio: "I've been plodding along in life and ... I haven't had that spark for a while. This is a journey for me, and it's helping me to realise what I want to do ... For the first time in my life, I've got a chance to think, breathe and consider that there might be a clean slate in front of me."

Last, but not least, is law student Sharnee Rawson, who didn't even make it into a courtroom before deciding she'd prefer to make a buck by slogging it out in the kitchen.

"I'm feeling a bit lost and I'm hoping that being on MasterChef will give me a better idea of what direction to go," says Rawson in her MasterChef bio

"I do enjoy law, but I love food."
