MasterChef: Behind the scenes, Andy and Ben on life after the show
Knowing that they would likely break the rule, given the proper time alone together, Ben and Leslie attempted to stay apart as best they could. Then Chris forced them to be together by sending them on a road trip to Indianapolis, and what ensued was was a heart-wrenching half hour of close calls, roadblocks and then, finally, mercifully, a first kiss. Especially when your relationship is secret, and could cost you your job. The first meeting between Ben and Marlene Griggs-Knope is incredible.

Leslie snaps and loses her sanity for a pivotal few seconds, telling Ben that Marlene is a Filipino woman of no relation to her, later having to backtrack that statement and tell Ben the truth. Naturally, with this new information sprung upon him, Ben is a complete wreck in the meeting. By the end of Season Three, Parks and Recreation was firing on all cylinders.
Parks and Recreation may be set in a nutty fictitious town, but when it came to relationships romantic and platonic it was always refreshingly honest, grounded in truth and with a sense of modernity.
But Ben and Leslie were always the centerpiece. The Season Four episodes in which the two were separated had some of the best, most honest discussion about relationships television has seen in a long time.

Lucky for Parks fans, creator Michael Schur is no slouch when it comes to penning big moments. Andy and Ben have continued to work together after MasterChef. It was amazing to learn from so many other people. Yep the list of unknowns is huge! I was more about having a good time with family and friends.

I had no idea what he was all about. I found out and felt like an idiot, but by the end of that show, Marco and I respected each other. He could see the enjoyment I was having cooking, and we were both enjoying what we were doing. Andy Allen won MasterChef Australia in They do create challenges that are just not meant to be achievable.

There were certain challenges where the food had to be served cold, but what no one saw on TV was that the judges are constantly going around and tasting food. They do get a pretty good idea from doing that about whether it will taste good or not. But I think very little down time is a good thing, because it distracts you from missing home.
You are literally always learning, always on. Those team challenges, and how you get through them, and the skills you gain are invaluable too.
I was never lonely, but I did miss the people on the outside. You just miss the people who would normally be popping in and out of your life every day. My sister just had a little baby boy when I went on the show, there was lots happening in the outside world. We spent every single day with them and all your normal support structures are gone, so you rely on the people in that house, and that top Some people did struggle, but we were very lucky we had each other.
