MasterChef fans were left devastated following his elimination during Sunday’s semi-final episode of Back to Win.

And Reynold Poernomo has now spoken out about the tricky toffee apple challenge that sent him packing, explaining on Studio 10 on Monday that it was ‘ten times harder’ than anything he had tried to cook before.

The 26-year-old also revealed he was focusing his attention on his Sydney dessert restaurant, KOI, but admitted he was nervous about a potential second wave of COVID-19, which may force him to temporarily close the business once again.

Reynold revealed that he was ‘stoked’ to have made it to the top three, especially as he felt he was under ‘a lot of pressure’ and only had ‘two to three hours of sleep the night before.’

He was especially happy about his placing, given that he struggled with the toffee apple challenge, which he likened to a ‘massive marathon.’

When asked about how tough it was to run a food business in light of the coronavirus pandemic this year, Reynold explained: ‘Before COVID hit I was going back every weekend to visit KOI and manage everything from Melbourne. It was hard.

‘When COVID hit, we had to shut our doors for a few weeks, and then we readjusted, and tried to revive it back into our operational hours.

Reynold’s interview comes after MasterChef judge Melissa Leong shared a heartfelt tribute to him following his elimination.  

The 38-year-old judge revealed she was excited to see where the chef would be taking his blinding skills next.

Sharing a lengthy post to her Instagram account, Melissa began: ‘You embody so much of what it means to hold the weight of family history and sacrifice, personal pressure and expectation with such strength, focus and honour.’

She continued: ‘Your youthful defiance is at times maddening to your MC tiger mum (that’s me!), but I know you have a great heart, a quick mind, and an endless capacity to learn and beat your best, every single day.’

Melissa went on to say that she was very proud of Reynold and that the sky’s the limit for him.

Kind words for Reynold: '... you have a great heart, a quick mind, and an endless capacity to learn and beat your best, every single day. ⁣',' Melissa wrote

Reynold was sent home after failing to impress the judges with his toffee apple dessert.

Following the announcement, viewers were quick to vent on social media.

‘I for one put forward the motion that Reynold replaces Andy as a MasterChef judge for 2021,’ one fan wrote.

A second said: ‘I’m not tuning in tomorrow, my 13-year-old daughter is devastated. Just apologise and say Reynold is the winner.’ 

While a third announced it was ‘time to crowdfund a trophy for Reynold’, along with a crying face emoji.

‘I’ll be taking a trip down to Koi soon to witness Reynold’s genius creations and support a fellow Asian,’ wrote another.

The MasterChef Grand Finale airs Monday at 7.30pm on Channel Ten

Mother-of-two Amanda put on a very loved-up display with her husband Chris Hughes during the trip.

Cliveden house is a popular spot for celebs and has hosted an array of famous faces over the years including President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charlie Chaplin.

The property, once owned by William Waldorf Astor, was also the hotel where Meghan Markle stayed the night before her wedding to Price Harry in 2018.

ashley darby asks for post nuptial agreement in tense conversation with husband michael

A strip club scandal drove a wedge into their marriage.

Now Ashley Darby has asked her husband Michael Darby for a post-nuptial agreement.

A new preview for the upcoming episode of RHOP captures the tense moment Ashley makes the proposal.

Sitting across Michael while wearing her dazzling engagement ring, Ashley explains the agreement would be a protective measure for herself and their one-year-old son Dean in the event the transgression occurs again.

‘My idea that I did have and that I wanted to see how you felt about was doing a post-nuptial agreement. Something that would be protecting Dean and me in the event that this happens again,’ she explains.

Michael remains silent after her proposal, processing the heavy news.

‘Hmm,’ he manages before another brief pause.

‘We can look at that,’ he adds.

In a confessional, Ashley goes into further detail about her intention behind the post-nupt.

‘Michael and I had a pre-nuptial agreement that expired after five years of marriage,’ Ashley explains. ‘Now, in the event of a divorce, I will receive fifty percent of our assets. And now, I think it would be good for us to have a post-nuptial agreement because post-nup would outline things that are guaranteed to get, no arguing, no disputing, and essentially would speed up the process in the event of a divorce.’

Back with her husband, Ashley expresses her appreciation for his willingness to be open to the idea.

‘I don’t really know what it would say, but so glad you’re open to it,’ she says.

‘I want to make sure that you’re happy, and that I look after you in the right way. I think that’s important right now,’ he said.

‘I agree,’ Ashley replies.

Ashley explained while they had had romances in the past with other people, she no longer wanted to do that.

She also said if she found news about his other dalliances, it would be ‘catastrophic for our relationship.’

‘We’re not gonna stay together just for Dean,’ she told Michael. ‘If I find out anything else, it will be catastrophic for our relationship.’

The couple’s marriage has been in trouble after rumors of Michael’s alleged dalliances came to light.

Real Housewives Of Potomac stars Candiace Dillard Bassett and Gizelle Bryant came forth with text messages that alleged that Michael was with several strippers, telling people he had a wife and a boyfriend, and apparently trying to hook up, despite being married.

Michael explained to his wife that he and his friends had been talking to some women at a strip club, before one of the ladies offered to go to a hotel with him.

‘Michael said, “I was so drunk, I fell asleep, and when I woke up, she was laying in the bed next to me,”‘ Ashley recalled.

‘Then when Michael gets out of bed to check the time, she snapped a picture of him from behind at the dresser and gave it to a blog.’ 

Ashley and Michael are now expecting their second child together.   

The Real Housewives of Potomac air Sundays 9/8c on Bravo.

Forbes revealed in 2019 that Rihanna — who’s real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty — is the richest female musical artist.

The Diamonds singer’s $600 million net worth has eclipsed the fortunes earned by her peers Beyonce, Madonna and Celine Dion, according to the publication. 

In addition to her latest fashion ventures, Rihanna dipped into the world of cosmetics in 2017 with Fenty Beauty, a company which accrued nearly $570million in revenue in 2018.
