Leonidas Koutsopoulos, Panos Ioannidis and Sotiris Kontizas they wanted to know more about the chef who maintains his own youtube channel.
Thomas, describing the most intense moments of his life, left the judges speechless: “When I was 18 years old, I reached 230 kg and when I was 19 I had an incident, I had a seizure and for a few minutes I was off in the emergency room. They brought me back with adrenaline and electric shock,” said 31-year-old Thomas about the moment he came close to death.
On his battle with the pounds: “This resulted in me trying to enter the diet process for the first time in my life, because as many times – up to that time – I had tried, I didn’t succeed. After I found the will in myself, then I decided to go in and study it and help myself,” said the MasterChef contestant who then went into Dietetics.
