She also expressed that she has learnt how much she can achieve in a limited amount of time.

“As an Instagram cook who loves sharing quick and easy meals, this show really tested my limits and taught me how much I can actually achieve in very little time, all while competing against the clock, against professional chefs, working with contestants to help bring three dishes to the table every time. It’s been laughs, tears, sprinting, spills, burnt bread and tasty meals all wrapped up in 20 minutes. So are you going to be rooting for the Red Tomatoes or the Green Peppers?” she said in the interview.
