She can't see it!

Melissa Leong is currently on holiday with her partner Rob Mason, but it turns out quite a few people mistake him for her MasterChef co-star Jock Zonfrillo.
The host, who was nominated for the prestigious Gold Logie, penned a tribute dedicated to Rob on Instagram with a black-and-white picture of him on their hotel balcony.
"The amount of strangers who have voluntarily told me that @therobmason is "awesome", "hillarious" and has "good energy" this week on tour, is a bit ridiculous. I mean, he's OK," she joked.

"My work is weird, I walk fast for a small person, and I am extremely anxious about a lot, especially when the attention is on me."
Melissa then gushed: "You deal with all of it with kindness and empathy, even if you force me to be the lead in the conga line, against my will (only 70 people @lexusaustralia were involved, and they've all signed an NDA).
"Thank you for being the legend I need in my life and loving me for all the bits, not just the good ones."
After sharing her loved-up message, though, Melissa concluded her post by reacting to a reporter at the recent TV WEEK Logie Awards mistaking Rob for Jock.
"*Funny story, someone spoke to him for a full 5 minutes on the red carpet, thinking he was @zonfrillo," she joked.

Melissa then called out comedian Em Rusciano for starting the conversation about their likeness.
"But I blame that on @emrusciano and I SERIOUSLY don't see it!"

Even though Melissa may not see it, a fan commented, "Haha, Now that you've said that, I can't unsee it ☺️ 😝."
The 40-year-old made her relationship with the father-of-three public on Father's Day 2021 by sharing a picture of him on her Instagram.

"Gratuitous hot dad post, a day late," she wrote in her caption.
"Creator of world class cosmetics and the brains behind @morrismotley, brilliant father to a legendary babe squad and the best part of my day, nothing but love @therobmason 🖤."
