MasterChef Australia's Brendan Pang Keen For Reece Hignell Spin-Off Show

One half of the show's favourite bromance has said he would "love" to continue appearing on screen with his best friend.

Since Brendan Pang’s emotional elimination on Sunday night, ‘MasterChef Australia’ viewers have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment that his bromance with Reece Hignell has come to an end on TV.

Some have even suggested the pair get their own show, an idea that Brendan has agreed could be a winner.

“It would just be us hanging out. I would definitely love that,” the 26-year-old told HuffPost Australia.

He said it’s “awesome” that fans have enjoyed his and Reece’s friendship blossom on the cooking show this year after they first met on ‘MasterChef’ in 2018.

“I think the best thing I love the most is that our friendship very naturally played out on TV,” he said. “Viewers have been able to see that and have responded really well to it.

“We’re both naturally quite sassy towards each other, we like to joke around and we’r like brothers. It’s awesome to see people loving it.”

Known for his delicious dumplings, Brendan made it to the top eight on the show and was eliminated on Sunday night.

There are 24 previous contestants including Poh Ling Yeow, Reynold Poernomo and Callum Hann who have returned to the series for another shot at victory, but we are now up to the final seven.

‘MasterChef Australia: Back To Win’ continues at 7:30pm on Channel 10.
