Contestants will be asked to “pimp up” some instant noodles, and while people from all walks of life are big fans of the two-minute treats, Asian Australians are particularly stoked.
Writer Benjamin Law said the episode is “a real Sophie’s Choice moment for every East Asian person”, asking his Twitter followers to pick their favourite type of instant noodles.
‘MasterChef’ judge Melissa Leong, who is proud of her Chinese Singaporean heritage, speaks about her fondness for noodles in a preview for the episode.
“Who doesn’t love these guys? I mean look, I’m obsessed with noodles. I think growing up in an Asian family, you know this.”
Competing in the immunity challenge is Poh Ling Yeow, Reece Hignell, Jess Liemantara and Simon Toohey.
