PLAY TELEVISION CELEBRITIES DON APRONS
Pierre White is no stranger to our screens. The intense stare of Britain’s godfather of modern cooking has rattled many MasterChef contestants.
Now he’s turning his attention to an eclectic mix of Australian and international celebrities in Hell’s Kitchen Australia.
“What’s special about Australia is the people. They are wonderful, truly kind and honest,” he says.
“But secondly, they serve good food and really good coffee. I’ll get on a plane for a really good coffee. I can’t say that about many countries.”
Ten celebrities ranging from athletes to actors, reality TV stars and a quiz show super nerd will be put through their paces in the kitchen, where they’ll compete in service challenges. The last star standing will win $ 50,000 for his or her chosen charity.
White says he has no expectations of his famous apprentices.
“I have zero expectations. Because if you step into that arena with expectations, then you’ll be let down,” he says.
“What’s important is allowing people to be themselves. I always lead from the front, and it’s up to them whether they wish to follow.”
Can any of the celebrities actually cook? Viewers will have to tune in to find out.
