“If you don’t put your all into it and try your best, you are not going to get anything out of it,” he told Parade.com in this exclusive interview. “That is definitely what I did in the finale. I went all out with what I cooked and how I did it. I do that a lot in my life. You’ve got to put your all into it. If you don’t, you won’t get the right results.”

Che said he hoped to open his own restaurant one day but being on the show opened another career option for him.
“I definitely want to have a restaurant at some point in my life, but being on the show, I realized how much I love cooking shows and being on TV, so I am thinking having my own cooking show one day would be a really cool thing to do.”
