Why Is Hayden Quinn Being Pimped As Masterchef’s Sex Symbol?
I am seriously not getting the Hayden Quinn being the pin-up boy of this year’s Masterchef Australia series. He gets a huge amount of camera time compared to the other contestants, except perhaps for Alex.
And today’s article in the Sunday Telegraph calling him a sex symbol just confirmed to me the publicity department is pimping him hard as the series hottie.
Quite frankly I am not feeling the love.
Ok I admit he may have a semi-six pack (always a positive thing), however when he speaks he does not sound very intelligent or articulate, and he is not THAT attractive.
The article says:
MASTERCHEF sex symbol Hayden Quinn is being tipped as the next contestant from the juggernaut series to cut it in the culinary industry.
The likeable 23-year-old lifeguard from Sydney’s northern beaches has displayed talents beyond his amateur classification – trumping top chef Alessandro Pavoni’s key apprentice from Mosman restaurant Ormeggio, in the program’s first immunity challenge.
Of his future, Quinn, who is already a firm favourite, said he was keen to turn his MasterChef experience into future television work, combining his passion for cooking with travel.
“For me, I love travel and culture and people, and what permeates through all that is food,” Quinn told The Sunday Telegraph. “If I could replicate what I’ve seen and experienced overseas and introduce people to those things through a small restaurant or a book, that would be cool.
“Or maybe if it could become a television show that combined travel, culture, the ocean and surfing, that would be incredible.”
Such aspirations may not be too far fetched, according to one television executive.
“He has the looks and poise, definitely some skills, women seem to like him … you could certainly expect to see more of him,” the executive said.
Regarding his concept for his cooking show, someone needs to inform it has already been done. It was called Surfing The Menu starring Ben O’Donoghue and Curtis Stone.
What do you think? Is he this series best looking guy?
