Series 3 of MasterChef Australia yet isn't done, but applications are already open for season 4 in 2012. That means thousands of Australians will sign up to try and fulfil their dreams of a career in food/TV stardom, but I'm thinking more broadly. What would you do if you had six months to pursue your dream and a basic salary to pursue it?

Successful contestants on MasterChef can be on the show for up to six months, during which they receive an allowance of $500 a week. That's below the minimum wage, but it is quite a lot to get paid while trying to change your career and develop your skills.
Not everyone wants to be a chef (or have to talk about "the journey" on camera for hours every week), but I suspect many of us would love the opportunity to take six months and transform our lives. What career path or dream project would you pursue? Tell us in the comments.
