Poh Ling Yeow may not have won MasterChef Australia, but she is already racking up its rewards.
As she told TV Tonight today, she’s just been given a major offer.
“I got another offer today from Luke Mangan to go to Tokyo and San Francisco to work in his restaurants. My head’s spinning!” she said.
Ling Yeow says at this stage the offer is very open-ended.
“To work it either or both, he said we can figure it out. His restaurants are absolutely stunning.”
It comes on the back of an offer from Curtis Stone to learn alongside him in Los Angeles in the near future.
“We have to finalise dates to work around his very busy schedule,” she said.
She is hoping to be able to accept both offers, given that one is only short-term offer.
Ling Yeow says she is still coming to terms with the popularity of the show which last night soared to 3.74m viewers.
“Kids are my biggest fans. I get stopped at supermarkets more than anywhere. It’s crazy,” she said.
Meanwhile, she hadn’t heard that one newspaper accidentally ran with her as the winner of the show last night.
“That is hilarious. I don’t keep up with any of it. I’m too scared.
“How funny. They got that one wrong didn’t they?”
Crikey has since published an article suggesting TEN gave the newspaper two interviews on Friday with both finalists, in order to keep the name of the winner under wraps. It follows previous media interviews in which eliminated contestants said nothing about re-appearing in the show.
