PS: Brent, I have a very serious question now. The press release says you’re a fan of Mariah Carey and Gossip Girl — what’s your favourite Mariah song and who’s your favourite Gossip Girl character?
Brent: Oh, I like the carols, so “All I Want For Christmas Is You” would be number one! [Laughs] And, Gossip Girl. Serena, Blair — all of them, really! I just liked everyone on the show, it was awesome. There was a moment in New York where Maddie was walking in Central Park, and it was where Chuck and Blair got married on the last episode, and she just started bawling her eyes out [laughs], because she was so involved in it.
PS: But you were also totally committed to the series as well, right?
Brent: She got me into it, and then we were obsessed. I’m like that with Offspring now.
PS: Did you see last week’s episode, with the twist at the end?
Brent: No, no, I am waiting to see. It’s on record, so don’t reveal any secrets yet!
PS: I won’t. The press release also says that Maddie made you audition for MasterChef and in return she’d audition for Australia’s Next Top Model — is that still happening?
Brent: It is! Auditions start in two weeks, so it’s her time to shine.
PS: She is stunning. On Twitter lots of people commented on how pretty she is.
Brent: I know. I hope it all works out for her.
PS: How did she react when you weren’t thrilled with the ingredients she picked for that mystery box of yours?
Brent: [Laughs] Well, it’s funny. She spent a lot of time with my sister to choose those ingredients, and she actually thought they were the ingredients I wanted to use for the dish for dad, because at the end of note, she said, “There’s always light at the end of the tunnel.” She knew about that dish, and she thought the ingredients I wanted. She over-thought the whole thing. It ended up working out well for me.
PS: Do you feel much more confident with your desserts now, since you managed to produce some pretty good ones?
Brent: Yeah, definitely. I actually love desserts now. You can be so creative with them.
PS: And the pressure tests in the grand finales are always desserts, so I guess you feel like you have to work towards being good at that, in a way.
Brent: Exactly. You get told to learn everything, and that was what I was weakest at, so that’s what I worked the most on.
PS: What is the food dream now? Has it changed from when you applied for MasterChef?
Brent: I think from the beginning of the show it was a bit cloudy; I didn’t have anything as a main pathway, but now it’s all sort of clearing up. I’ve got a few more things to filter through but it’s getting there, it’s looking positive. It’s really exciting.
PS: Which part of the prize are you most excited about? You won quite a bit.
Brent: I would say the reactions of my family and friends last night. That was all worth it, that’s what made it. Money aside, car aside, book aside, that was the most satisfying part for me.
