Pippa O'Connor will be putting herself in the firing line on TV3's The Restaurant tomorrow night as the pregnant blogger shows off her culinary skills.
However, the 31-year-old has admitted that she prefers being served her food rather than dishing it up herself - as cooking is not one of her many talents.
"I definitely prefer eating than cooking, but I do like cooking when I have time. But I'd much rather go out to eat," she told the Herald Diary.
"I love going to restaurants, it's my favourite thing in the world. I love eating nice food. I signed up to The Restaurant going, 'That will be good,' not really thinking, 'Okay, it's actually going to be hard work."
No stranger to long hours, given her modelling career, Pippa admitted that even she found it a gruelling experience.
"I was in at eight o'clock in the morning and was still in the kitchen at midnight. It was full-on.
"So I'm glad I got to do it before I became pregnant because it was a tiring, long day," she said.
"Now I know why the chefs wear those Croc shoes because your back is in bits after the day. But it was great, a nice experience, but I don't know if I'd be rushing to do it again."
The social media star is due her second baby with Brian Ormond in May. Their little boy, Ollie, will turn three next month.
