George is obviously the most important man in the house! For most of his adult life George has been involved in the hospitality industry. As Master Chef he is in much demand and is frequently Chef at the V.I.P. Lounge at Telstra Stadium. The seminary is lucky to have George as its full-time chef. His speciality is turning the ordinary into the gourmet. Residents of the seminary are advised to undertake a daily workout!
