Quotes

Season 9

  • (About Shanika) "You know Shanika, this is not the Shanika show, this is MasterChef. Either get on board or you need to rethink maybe what team you chose to be on."
  • (After being eliminated) "Unfortunately, today is my day to go home, but coming from small town, Neenah Wisconsin, all the way to the Top 10 of MasterChef was a dream and it's something that I am gonna hold onto forever. This whole experience has only added to my passion for food. That's only gonna continue to grow, it's like one little snowball that starts the avalanche."

Season 12

  • "Last time I was here on Season 9, I made a mistake that sent me home. That moment is something that I do think about often. Let's just say if given the opportunity to save myself or try to send someone else home, I will be saving myself."
  • (After being eliminated) "I walked back in the MasterChef kitchen really not expecting the journey that I’ve had. This competition really pushes you outside of your comfort zone. I tried things that maybe I wouldn’t have tried, cooked things maybe I wouldn’t have cooked. Ultimately, my goal was to make it further than I did Season 9, and I’ve made the Top 5. So, I’m leaving the MasterChef kitchen with my head held high, and I am proud as hell."
