Raised in the Mormon Church and working with two ex-husbands: The eventful life of Poh Ling Yeow.

Since the reality TV cooking show, Poh has been busy!

She’s had a successful career as a chef in the years following, with her own cooking show Poh’s Kitchen, series Poh & Co. and multiple cookbooks, televisions appearances and more.

Then in 2020, MasterChef die-hards rejoiced when it was announced the series was bringing back its fan favourites to compete against one another, aka the best of the best. 

Speaking about the return, Poh said to Mamamia: “I’ve been waiting for this moment for ten years and now I’m back. I have a little bit of unfinished business.”

Unfortunately for fans (and Poh), she was eliminated from the competition over some burnt butter and undercooked pasta in the show’s final weeks. 

In 2024, she’s set to return to the MasterChef Australia kitchen, except this time, she will co-host the cooking show. The opportunity came about after the death of late judge Jock Zonfrillo.

“I am very sensitive to the fact this opportunity came my way with the passing of Jock,” she told Good Food. “I am glad to push his legacy forward with a new beginning, and it’s been a joy to get to know the other hosts.”
