Richter’s “hard” criticism for the show winner

MasterChef: Professionals winner Alex Webb showed what Gregg Wallace really is like behind the scenes on the BBC show.

Away from the cameras, Alex told Entertainment Daily that Gregg was “brilliant”.

He did admit, however, that the MasterChef judge had recently “nudged” – and told a little about it behind the scenes.

What did Alex Webb say about MasterChef star Gregg Wallace?

Alex who just got together Coffee friendED Said !: “Gregg is brilliant behind the scenes.

“He always came to the set, even if it was around 7am, with the windows down and the music playing from his car.

“And I always wondered why he left his car half in the square and half on the sidewalk, even though there was plenty of parking space to park in, with the music still booming.

“He sure knows how to get in,” chuckled Alex.

“But it was great working with him on the show-off camera. He’s so fun and incredibly supportive too.”

And, he said, Gregg was always there to calm his nerves by “making a silly joke and making me feel good”.

However, he admitted talking a little about the MasterChef favorite.

“The judges were also critical.

“I remember struggling with Asian flavors and the judges took me aside and told me in simple terms what to work on in terms of flavor and depth.”

Alex added, “It was hard to hear and take, but it made me realize how flawless you have to be to get on your level when you are outside of your comfort zone.”

How did Gregg Wallace lose weight in assessing MasterChef?

Gregg has been showing off his six pack abs on social media lately, but how did he manage to shift the pounds with all that gourmet food he has to try?

Alex left ED! into a little secret.

“To be honest, the judges don’t really eat that much of the plates we present them – maybe no more than a small sip each time.

“Even though I know Gregg lost a lot of weight, it wasn’t my cooking!

“Though I got on set early sometimes and he was just finishing his long run around the canals in East London near the studio kitchen,” he said.

Are Alex and Gregg still in contact?

It seems Gregg is a little too busy to give Alex much time or attention after the show.

Alex said he reached out to Gregg recently but got a little nudge.

Alex revealed, “I text Gregg occasionally, but unfortunately he just turned down an invitation to do an Instagram Live with me – he’s still a very busy man!”

What advice would he give to the winner of this MasterChef series?

Alex said winning MasterChef: The pros last year have been a little “overwhelming” at times.

“It can be overwhelming,” he said.

“So my advice to the next MasterChef winner is to keep your feet on the ground and surround yourself with good people to advise you on your next steps, as this is an unknown world you are stepping into.”

A double bill from MasterChef will air on BBC One tonight (March 25th) at 8:30 p.m.
