The 25-year-old wannabe chef, who came second to Kate Bracks in the final of the Australian version of the reality cooking show, said that he hopes to enjoy some romance after being single for four years.
Weldon told Woman's Day magazine: "Love is a lovely thing. I'm definitely looking for it and hopefully it isn't too far in the future. I hope there's someone soon, because I'd really like to have kids, but I need someone to marry me first. I haven't got any love letters yet!"
He said of MasterChef: "I can't say a bad word about the show and it's been the best experience of my life. But I'm a winner anyway. Sure, I was nervous, but winning isn't the be-all-and-end-all."
Weldon credited his mother Genevieve with keeping him "cool, calm and collected" throughout the MasterChef experience and said that he has now moved in with her because he likes her "encouraging" spirit.
Since the show ended, Weldon has been offered a paid apprenticeship in judge Gary Mehigan's Melbourne restaurant, while Bracks said that she dreams of opening a bed and breakfast in her hometown of Orange.
