Masterchef Australia – Former Contestant Claims It Made Him Fat
Craig Young from season three Masterchef Australia says the show made him fat.
Newsflash: If you are going to enter a cooking show, chances are you are going to put on weight!
Young told the Sunday Telegraph that wen he entered the Masterchef house he weighed 110kgs and after he left he was 125kgs and had to book into a weight loss clinic to get it off.
He told the Sunday Telegraph:
“The biggest problem was that you were not allowed to leave the house,” he said. “So I found it quite hard to exercise at all. There were some weights in the garage, but that was not a nice place at all to exercise.”
Young said the program’s producers were “paranoid” about people leaving the house because “they were worried about paparazzi”.
“But I never saw a photographer outside,” he said. “There were nine days where I had nothing scheduled and I was going stir crazy and it would have been so much easier to go for a walk or jog . . . but that’s the rules of the show.”
Young said other contestants also had problems with weight gain because MasterChef was “not a low-fat food show”.
Well it would appear the scene where Hayden comes jogging into the house was staged. No wonder there was no sweat on him.
I liked Craig but seriously I am not feeling much sympathy for him on this issue.
