For those who enjoy watching a dish being made, a cooking competition is a treat. Ingredients, sauces, meats mingle to form a perfect balanced dish, or atleast, that's the idea behind it.

But wonder not, for we have listened to you and put together a list of favourite contestants from the "MasterChef US" series so far and tracked their life after the show.
The only blind contestant to have participated and won the MasterChef trophy in season 3 is an inspiration.
