“Why was SHE not a judge?” Fans trick MasterChef host Andy Allen, calling for him to be replaced by eliminated contestant Poh Ling Yeow
While MasterChef Australia’s new hosts were largely praised by viewers, there was some criticism of Judge Andy Allen.
In recent weeks, fans have taken to social media to beat the 32-year-old for everything from his fashion to his feedback.
And since the elimination of Poh Ling Yeow in the Sunday night episode, there have been new calls for the 47-year-old cook to replace Andy on the panel.
