Melissa Leong announces new career move as she reflects on being dumped from MasterChef Australia

Melissa Leong’s career has been in full swing since she was dumped from MasterChef Australia last year.

The 42-year-old is now moving into a role outside of her usual brand as she takes on a commentary position at UFC 305 at the RAC Arena.

The former MasterChef judge will be flexing her muscles while broadcasting the mixed martial arts (MMA) event.

‘I’ve never really done much sports, but MMA really fascinates me. Who knows where it will take me next!’ she tells Perth Now.

Reflecting on her time as a judge on MasterChef Australia, Melissa says she has no regrets and will be watching the new season.

“I reflect on my past four years as host and judge of MasterChef with joy, gratitude and utmost respect,” she said.

“I look at it every day as something that was a big part of my life and still is a big part of my life.”

According to a new report, news comes that Melissa is ready for an international television career.

There have been ‘murmurs’ that she has ‘attracted the attention of other international MasterChef formats including MasterChef Asia and MasterChef Singapore’. Herald Sun reported earlier this year.

The publication further claimed that Melissa has attracted a growing fan base in Britain, South Africa and New Zealand thanks to episodes of MasterChef Australia airing around the world.

The Channel Ten star, who has taken on a new role as a judge on Dessert Masters, hinted at big career moves in an Instagram post posted in December.

“For those who supported me and believed in me; a big and heartfelt thank you. And for those who haven’t… you’re going to hate what happens next!’ she wrote in her caption.

The food critic was fired from MasterChef Australia last year amid rumors of a feud between herself and fellow judges Andy Allen and the late Jock Zonfrillo, which she has denied.

She then presented the MasterChef spin-off series Dessert Masters alongside Amaury Guichon, who is billed as the world’s most popular pastry chef.

“I reflect on the past four years as host and judge of MasterChef with joy, gratitude and maximum respect,” she said

Her excitement was palpable when she recently spoke to Ny Breaking Australia about her new hosting gig on Dessert Masters, describing it as a ‘dream come true’.

Melissa is also working on her upcoming SBS documentary series The Hospital: In The Deep End.

Additionally, she previously announced that she would be hosting UFC Fight Week on Kayo Sports and Foxtel.

Melissa is also one of the names in the running to replace Better Homes and Gardens star Ed Halmagyi after it was announced he would be leaving the show.

“I’m so focused on all the incredible projects,” she said.
