Bravotv.com: You all seemed to form a real bond. Have you all kept in touch? We did have a fabulous time. The crew was ever so helpful; it made our job easy. And since we are so different, the synergy was really quite spontaneous and genuine. I think we have all been so busy, but Roy and I have been in touch because we work the same charity circuit.

What did they teach you?
Respect.

Bravotv.com: Anything else you’d like to add?
Frankly, it was quite different than I expected. I now have a tremendous respect for the Top Chef contestants, both past and present. They have an extremely hard job, with crazy, intense
challenges. Lastly, I always enjoy change and I relish new challenges. This really was a valuable experience.
