Carly is a clothing store owner from Langley, B.C. A self-proclaimed fashion nut, she is continually adding to her collection of bomber jackets, and lists ‘dressing people’ as one of her favourite things to do. When it comes to relationships, Carly is “single and ready to mingle,” and heralds cooking as her first passion – which she’s been doing since she was 10. Although Carly’s friends are her main inspiration, it was her mom that she helped out around the kitchen as a child, and remains the biggest reason for her love of cooking. You can hear Iron Maiden blasting in Carly’s kitchen while she prepares canapés and hors d’oeuvres. Carly prefers to stay away from offal ingredients, especially intestine.

Carly loves MASTERCHEF and has always wanted to be on television. Taking the grand prize on MASTERCHEF CANADA would mean she could realize her goal of opening a new restaurant in her hometown. Her dream job would be to run a bed-and-breakfast that treats guests to an amazing holistic experience – everything from educating them about their host city to taking them on tours and bike rides.
