'MasterChef' Interviews: Which of the Final Three Contestants Has the Recipe for Success?

Okay, MasterChef fans -- did you call it? Did you bet your money on Stephen Lee, Claudia Sandoval, or Derrick Peltz to make the final three this season? In a tighter-than-usual contest, season 6 featured so many great home cooks that picking the top finishers was no cake walk.   With the finale, one of these three will walk away with a bundle of money and the "coveted MasterChef trophy." The others will have to settle for fond memories, a batch of embroidered aprons, and some lifelong friendships.   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/masterchef/masterchef-interviews-which-of-57496.aspx

'MasterChef' Interview: For Charlie and Ailsa, No Trophy but No Regrets

Imagine - you've out-cooked thousands of contenders and grabbed an apron for MasterChef season 6's Top 22. But it's still a competition, and someone gets the boot early. Some of us would be bitter at just missing out, but not Charlie Chapman or Ailsa Von Dobeneck.   Maybe it's the distance they've gained since filming ended several weeks ago. Or maybe it's just that these two upbeat Southerners realize one speed bump on the road to gastronomic glory can't hold them back. As we move closer to the season finale, I caught up with these gone-too-soon home cooks.   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/masterchef/masterchef-interview-for-charl-57396.aspx

'Masterchef' Interviews: Veronica, Jesse, and Brianna Find Life After the Apron

With six home cooks still battling it out on MasterChef, the kitchen couldn't be hotter. For the rest of the Top 22, however, the judges put their dreams of taking home the "covetedtrophy" on ice.   We're checking in on three of the season 6 contestants who left early. Guess what? They haven't put down their knives just yet. Hearing about their experiences, two things are clear. First, if you want to make friends for life, audition for MasterChef . Second, even without a trophy, you can walk away a winner. (Though, admittedly, not richer.)   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/masterchef/masterchef-interviews-veronica-57352.aspx

'MasterChef' Interview: Claudia Sandoval Throws Aside Excuses and Keeps Her Head in the Game

It takes a special kind of cook to find a whole pig's head on her stove - and laugh with delight. For Claudia Sandoval, the ability to fearlessly stare down her main ingredient is just another reason why she's made the MasterChef Top 7.   So far, her love of traditional Mexican cuisine has brought success -- and a spicy dance with Chef Graham Elliot. So it's not too surprising she was visiting her grandmother's house in San Diego when we spoke.   Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/masterchef/masterchef-interview-claudia-s-57290.aspx

'MasterChef' Interview: Olivia Crouppen on Her Turning Point and Wanting to Win

Not many ninjas do their thing in stilettos, except for Olivia Crouppen. She's sliced and diced her way into the MasterChef Top 10 and beyond -- without dramatics or sarcasm and always, always wearing black. And heels. One of her fellow contestants, Nick Nappi, calls her "the silent ninja" for her steady, no-nonsense performance on the show. Perhaps taking the "silent" thing to heart, Olivia was recovering from a bout of pneumonia when we spoke. Fortunately, her voice returned just in time.
