Famous chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, aka Hilda Baci, has revealed that she auditioned for Big Brother Naija reality show five times but wasn’t selected.
She said she planned to go on the reality show and become famous before staging her cooking challenge.
The Guinness World Record holder disclosed this while appearing on Cool FM Nigeria’s programme, The Big Friday Show, hosted by reality star, Tacha.
She said, “I actually tried to get on Big Brother [Naija] for a while. I think I auditioned about four or five times.
“The plan for the cook-a-thorn was still in the pipeline, so my goal was to go to Big Brother and then come out and do the cook-a-thorn.”
It would be recalled that Guinness World Records certified Hilda Baci as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
