Becky Reams came so close to apron glory on this season of “MasterChef” but was the third-to-last contestant to go. So what did this competitive homecook have to say in an exclusive interview with Reality TV Magazine about lasting so long in the competition and how she feels about going home?
“My friends peer pressured me to try out for the show. So I went to the open casting call and got brought to the top 100…then you’re surrounded by 99 other people who share the same passion for food.”
“My life was boring until this show,” she went on to say. “Everyday I was there was the greatest day of my life.”
“I loved the Marine challenge,” she said. “My brother is a marine and I was honored.”
Of course there can be only one MasterChef and it had to sting that she was sent home so close to the end.
“It was a big bummer…I knew I was going to get the frog legs. When I saw the choices, I knew I was going to get stuck with them…I still stand by the dish I put forward, changing my game plan at the last minute.”
And her plans for the future? Becky Reams was a food photographer, but having Gordon Ramsey, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot tell her that she should pursue her culinary dreams, she’s going to go for it. She’s doing an online series, “Foodie Next Door,” and just worked on a pop-up restaurant. She hopes to have a brick-and-mortar up in the next year. Good luck, Becky!
