GE­ORGE DUMPED FROM MASTERCHEF?

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Top Goss! -

After what can only be de­scribed as a year from h hell, things are set to get worse for re­al­ity TV judge Ge­orge Calom­baris, with Ten con­sid­er­ing dump­ing the celeb chef from the long-run­ning fran­chise. “Masterchef prides it­self on be­ing a feel­good fam­ily show,” tells an in­sider. “There’s no deny­ing Ge­orge’s neg­a­tive PR will im­pact the brand. They’re se­ri­ously weigh­ing up their op­tions.” Last week, Ge­orge, 38, was back in court plead­ing guilty to as­sault­ing a foot­ball fan in May. As if that wasn’t enough, posters show­ing Ge­orge’s face were cir­cu­lat­ing Mel­bourne’s CBD, ask­ing, “Does this guy owe you money?” and of­fer­ing ad­vice on how to re­coup wages after his restau­rants were caught un­der­pay­ing staff.

Un­der fire... The posters (right) of­fer le­gal ad­vice to Ge­orge’s 162 un­der­paid work­ers.
