Reality Tidbits – Monday Wrap Up

 

Masterchef Australia continues its aim of global domination with the show premiering in Britain on UKTV on the 18 January. Will Matt Preston have an international career? Don’t be surprised if this show gains traction over there, and I am sure George Calombaris is already scoping for a restaurant site. (Source UKTV)

Poh Yeow-Ling the runner-up on Masterchef Australia will finally be going to work with Curtis Stone later this month in LA. Celebrity chef Curtis offered her this mentorship at the finale. While she is there Poh may be able to give him some tips on being on a reality TV show, as he is a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice. (Source Daily Telegraph)

Child Reality TV Star found dead in India. Apparently she suicided after her parents stopped her from going to dance class. Full story on Adelaide Now.

The Contender finalists will be Garth Wood and Kariz Kariuki. The final will be shown next Monday the 11 January. They winner will receive $25,000, a car, the title of “Contender Champion” and the opportunity to fight Anthony Mundine this year with a $250,000 prize purse.

Popular American Idol contestant Jason Castro at 22 years of age has married his girlfriend in Texas. He proposed on Halloween. No news yet on whether she is pregnant. (Source: RTE)

Britain’s Got Talent Runner Up, Susan Boyle, wants to date Simon Cowell. Unsurprising but disturbing nonetheless, doesn’t she know he would never date a 48 year old. (Source Hollyscoop) She also talks to Who Mag about her amazing year.

Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi may have slipped and told everyone she is having a girl in an interview with Jimmy Fallon. Padma who is pregnant with her first child has not revealed who the father is. Not that there is anything wrong with that. (Source Examiner)

 Nicole Ritchie will be a guest judge on the seventh season of Project Runway. No news yet on when Australia will be getting to see the sixth season of the show. (Source Digital Spy)

I love that the Herald-Sun is so desperate to snare readers keen on Masterchef that they ran a story yesterday on how MC is so influential that it’s even changing the way we name our babies. No, there hasn’t been an explosion of Poh at the Births, Deaths, and Marriages, but *gasp* apparently Australians are calling their kids George! Who’d’a thunk it? Must be an homage to Mr Calombaris because there haven’t been any other George’s in history, have there?

Speaking of MC, Gordon Ramsay is apparently starting a US Masterchef (can’t really see how that will work – either his personality or the format will need to be radically overhauled).

Wow. Jimmy Fallon. Just… wow. I mean, he’s as cute as a button, but… wow.

Seriously hoping a tv station buys the US version of Masterchef. I reckon Gordon is due for a hit, and this is going to be it.
