She always looks flawless while eating a snack in front of the camera.
And now MasterChef Australia judge Melissa Leong has addressed rumors that she’s sensually practicing eating different dishes on the popular show in front of the mirror.
On Tuesday, KIIS FM hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson said the way Melissa ate slowly on TV was ‘very sensual’ and wanted to know if she was doing it on purpose.
Is it true? MasterChef Australia Judge Melissa Leong (pictured) spoke of a long-standing rumor that she practiced sensual eating in front of a mirror during the show on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O show on Tuesday
“I heard you practiced in the mirror before going to the show,” Jackie asked the beauty during an interview on the radio show.
“It’s the best rumor around,” Melissa, 39, replied, laughing.
“Have you done it yet?” Jackie prodded, while Melissa replied, “I’ve been a professional eater for a long time, but it never hurts to see the way you look when you’re doing something in front of millions of people.”

‘I have trained myself even with food that I find difficult’: Melissa also said she has learned to maintain a poker face while assessing and tasting food, even if it is not attractive
Melissa also said she’s learned to maintain a poker face while judging and tasting food, even when it’s not appealing.
“ I’ve trained myself even with food.I find it hard to experience it in a more analytical way until at least it’s in battle, ” she said.
The TV judge previously revealed to The Daily Telegraph that during her first season on the show, she needed multiple takes to get the food shots perfect.
“I think anyone who has to eat in front of the camera learns pretty quickly not to take the bite they’d like,” Melissa said at the time.
‘I worked with some very nice producers’: the TV judge said earlier during her first season of MasterChef that she would need multiple shots to get the food shots perfect
“I worked early on with some very nice producers who said ‘you might want to try that one more time,'” she added.
Melissa added that ‘a montage of that would have been pretty funny’ if the footage ever surfaced.
Last year, she was widely regarded as the rescue of the revamped MasterChef franchise.
The new season started on Monday evening.
