MANILA, Philippines - Sonny Boy Tuazon dubbed as "Darak King" is back as one of the finalists of "MasterChef Pinoy Edition."
Tuazon, 24, is back in the hit reality cooking show after he won the challenges in the show's wildcard week.
"Mas kumportable na po ako ngayon gumalaw sa kusina lalo ngayon at may napatunayan na ako sa sarili ko. Mas gagalingan ko pa po at mas kumportable na ako ngayon," Tuazon said.
Tuazon, who is known for his "darak cookies", was the first finalist to leave the competition after he failed to impress host Judy Ann Santos and chef-judges Fern Aracama, Rolando Laudico and JP Anglo with his "Paksiw Na Hipon sa Ampalaya."
"MasterChef Pinoy Edition" with host Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo and judges Chef Ferns, Chef Lau, and Chef Jayps airs Mondays to Fridays, 10:30 a.m. before "Be Careful with My Heart" on ABS-CBN’s Umaganda block and on Saturdays, 10 a.m. before "Be Careful with My Heart Saturday Rewind."
