Behind-The-Scenes Stories From The 'MasterChef' Franchise

Cooking and competing - on TV, anyway - go together like pancakes and syrup, or pasta and cheese, and the creators of the MasterChef franchise are indeed masters of this form of reality TV. Both MasterChef and MasterChef Junior have taken center stage as two of the top cooking competitions on television, and you might be curious about what happens behind the scenes in the making of MasterChef and how "real" the shows and their contestants are.

Is the final cut viewers see on television an accurate depiction of what the contestants actually go through, or is part of it staged? If you're a fan of reality TV, you probably already know that much of what you see is set up in advance, but how much of MasterChef fits that description? Behind-the-scenes stories offer a glimpse into a franchise fans have been sampling with relish for years.
