MasterChef judge’s ‘awesome’ move stuns

 

 

It may have been a cliffhanger moment on last night's MasterChef, but that didn't stop one of the judge's from fulfilling her "duty".

At the tail-end of the episode, the judges were preparing to announce the winning team in the Thai feast challenge, in which contestants split into two teams served 100 hungry diners at the restaurant Thai Ute in Melbourne.

And just as they were about to congratulate the winners, the restaurant's phone rang.

Melissa Leong took it upon herself to answer the call and personally logged a 5pm dinner reservation for the following evening.

"As for the mains," Melissa began … "And the phone's ringing so I'll just go take that now", she said as the contestants wore shocked looks on their faces.

"Hello, Thai Ute!" Mel answered. "For tomorrow, a reservation, right?" she asked, before gesturing a producer to bring her a pen.

"Thank you so much, not a problem, bye!" she said, as she returned to the waiting contestants who gave her a round of applause.

The contestants were very impressed.

Viewers joined in the chorus of cheers as they took to social media to praise the new judge.
