Fans lose it over Poh Ling Yeow’s 'naughty' shirt

Celebrity chef and MasterChef alumn Poh Ling Yeow has sparked a frenzy among her followers online by sharing a photo of herself that contains a very X-rated hidden detail.

“You might wanna zoom in on my top. There’s an incident happening on the right,” she captioned the selfie, adding a mushroom emoji. But can you spot the ‘naughty’ inclusion?

The photo of the cook, who returned to our TV screens on the most recent all-star season of MasterChef: Back to Win, has already gotten over 12K likes and nearly 400 comments.

Some initially thought the ‘incident’ might have been something relatively innocent like a food or drink mishap.

“Hahahahaha and here I thought it was going to be food, you are so funny,” one person commented.

While another wrote: “Omg I was looking for wine stain.”

But it didn’t take long for her followers to realise it was actually a more X-rated scene playing out on the colourful top.

“Looks naughty,” one person pointed out, adding one of many laughing and more mushroom emoji.


“That’s a ripper,” another said.

“Oops! Something’s happening alright,” was another comment.

While a fourth person wrote: “Oh Saucy! Pardon the pun.”

Poh did cause some controversy during her return to MasterChef, with some fans claiming the series had turned into ‘The Poh Show’.

But fellow contestant Khanh Ong denied Poh got any sort of preferential treatment on set, saying her cooking style just made good TV.

“I get that people are saying ‘oh there's a lot of Poh!’ but there's a lot of Poh because she finds herself in jeopardy a lot,” Khanh told New Idea.

As such many were eventually shocked when Poh Ling Yeow was eliminated ahead of the series finale.

Fans took to social media to share their sadness at Poh's elimination with many echoing judge Melissa Leong’s statement that she is a "national treasure".

One fan wrote, "As Poh’s #MasterchefAU campaign ends... so too does 2020’s last chance at redemption."

"Poh is a national treasure, it’s been such a joy watching her on TV and I’m going to miss her every single weeknight #MasterChefAU," another added.

However, some fans were happy to see the chef leave the show with one person writing, "Poh show - over. Finally."
