The mother-daughter duo joined forces for the latest TV Buzz interview, in which Louisa praises her mum about her bubbly personality on My Kitchen Rules. “What you see is what you get,” said the 31-year-old Sydney school teacher, to which Pat quipped, “It’s true.”
Even though they merely dipped their feet in what would have been an extraordinary yet controversial cooking series, Louisa explained that their inner confidence kept this duo going. “It was tough being the first team of the second group to be eliminated—felt like a gunshot went off during a race and you trip over your shoe laces.”
It didn’t take long for the women to begin cackling and reminiscing of the old times—figuratively speaking. We asked Louisa a question that’s been on many of her fans’ minds. “Unfortunately, nothing developed there with Henry (aka Truffle Hottie). It wasn’t meant to be I’m afraid.”
“Last week, a stranger grabbed onto my hand and calmly said, ‘Don’t worry dear, you’re going to get Henry,'” she adds.
Pat admitted that after years in the kitchen, she wanted to explore more of what life has to offer. “I believe that life is about doing. It’s about changing,” said the 61-year-old receptionist, adding a few stupid mistakes cost her and Louisa the competition.
“I know exactly what happened—it’s frustrating!” Pat tells us. “During the elimination round, I tried to bake small cakes when I usually make a large one at home, and it turns out perfect. I don’t know why I made them individually. It was a misjudgment of time, I suppose.”
She adds, “Small cakes tend to cook quicker than a large one. So, yes… It was a bad mistake.”
The Sydney mum also reflected on her unique, emoji personality, also known as ‘Peter-Pan syndrome’. She said she learned a lesson she would carry with her throughout her life. “Give something a shot, even if it seems unreachable. For me, being on the show is a big achievement. Unless you give something a try, you’ll never know.”
Louisa adds, “My friends tell me to find a guy who can cook, because obviously I can’t!”
