Bravotv.com: Would it have meant more to you to win this challenge behind judged by Charlie?
It is an honor to win any challenge. The cooks are good here and much better than I expected. Winning with Charlie could be fun just to have some fun with Bryan, as Charlie is his biggest mentor. Also Charlie is an amazing chef with a very respected opinion.

Bravotv.com: How upset were you to see that the chefs did not make “the right decision,” as you guys put it?
I don't remember the context of the conversation. If it refers to Robin, then perhaps we were thinking that it was just time for her to go.

Bravotv.com: Who do you think your biggest competition is at this point?
Myself. I know that I'm the most rounded cook here, so sometimes I try to do too much and I lose to simplicity.
