MasterChef
Last week's episode of MasterChef didn't go the way Ailsa Von Dobeneck would've liked it to, but the 27-year-old assistant railroad manager from Norfolk, Virginia left with her head held high. She spoke to Starpulse after her elimination to talk about her competitive cooking experience.

"I am so over the moon about the whole experience," she enthused. "As long as I keep doing my very best and trying new flavor combos and cooking techniques, I will feel more than accomplished. I moved by myself across the world - there’s nothing I can’t do!"

One thing that separated Ailsa from some of the ...

When Monte Porter shook things up at the end of last season, fans had a lot to say - and there's still more to come. We spoke with Annika to discuss what it's like to be in the middle of a buzzy storyline, and what makes tonight's episode so big for Monte.

When next we see Monte, it's going to be in a surprising situation. "Somebody from Stef and Lena's inner circle asks to be set up with Monte, and it just becomes very awkward, uncomfortable, odd for all of them," A...
