Reynold Ran Out of Dessert Ideas on MasterChef!
Reynold Poernomo may not have won the title of MasterChef winner after being eliminated from the 2015 series on Thursday night's episode, but from early on he had already earned a different, super-sweet title: Dessert King. Judges Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris called the 20-year-old university student the best pastry amateur cook they've ever had on seven series of the show, and after reliving a montage of the 27 dessert creations he made, it's easy to see why!
Despite the high praise he got for his sweet treats, it wasn't a smooth ride for Reynold, who had issues with savoury dishes and struggled with fish in his last two cooks. Off the back of his elimination, which put Billie McKay, Georgia Barnes and Jessica Arnott in Sunday night's semi-final, we spoke to Reynold about lack of inspiration, MasterChef controversies, and why he missed the gym so much.
