[via press release from FOX]

A REALTOR, A STAY-AT-HOME DAD, A SERVER AND A NEURAL ENGINEER ARE THE "MASTERCHEF" TOP 4 FINALISTS

Amateur Cooks Jennifer Behm, Christian Collins, Adrien Nieto and Suzy Singh Vie for MASTERCHEF Title Monday, August 15, and Tuesday, August 16, on FOX

Jennifer Behm from Wilmington, DE; Christian Collins from Gloucester, MA; Adrien Nieto from Ventura, CA; and Suzy Singh from Chicago, IL, are the MASTERCHEF Top 4 finalists.

On Monday, Aug. 15 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top 4 enter into their last team challenge where they will present dishes for MASTERCHEF judges from around the globe, including France, India and Israel. The losing team will be forced to enter the pressure test, and one cook will be sent home. Then on a two-hour season finale, airing Tuesday, Aug. 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top 3 will compete head-to-head as judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot determine which hopeful truly has the passion, palate and potential to be named America's next MASTERCHEF and walk away with the $250,000 grand prize.

The Top 4 finalists reveal their favorite MASTERCHEF moments and what they learned from the show:

Jennifer Behm Age: 34 Occupation: Realtor Hometown: Wilmington, DE Mystery Box Challenges Won: 3 Team Challenges Won: 2

Favorite MASTERCHEF moment: "Making friendships and memories that were life-changing! Winning three mystery box challenges and cooking with Adrien for the international judges panel were all great moments for me!"

What she learned from the show: "I learned not to be afraid because they smell fear! With calculated risk comes great reward. I would taste things in my mind then would create from all the passion I have for cooking, and I think the belief in myself and my love for cooking showed through."

Christian Collins Age: 31 Occupation: Stay-at-Home Dad Hometown: Gloucester, MA Mystery Box Challenges Won: 1 Team Challenges Won: 4

Favorite MASTERCHEF moment: "Cooking for the mothers was my favorite moment. Converting Gordon's mother into a fish-eater was not only one of my greatest achievements on the show, but the greatest in my culinary career. I get excited every time I think no one else was able to prepare a piece of fish that she liked until me!"

What he learned from the show: "I learned so much from the experience. They put you in so many different situations, and you have to learn to adapt to the challenges and take risks - all under extreme pressure. We all poured our hearts and souls into this, and to make it to the Top 4 is really an unbelievable feeling and achievement."

Adrien Nieto Age: 28 Occupation: Server Hometown: Ventura, CA Mystery Box Challenges Won: 2 Team Challenges Won: 3

Favorite MASTERCHEF moment: "I coined a saying that we all used, 'retrospect and speculation,' because the competition seemed to take us out of the moment, but looking back we faced the competition as a group, so we were absolutely in every moment together! I was happy to be with such beautiful people every moment of MASTERCHEF, and now they're my awesome friends!"

What he learned from the show: "I learned all about perseverance and never to give up! Nothing is an obstacle you can't find a way around, and winning and losing are only temporary things. There is always something about your dream and if you go after it, you can get it!"

Suzy Singh Age: 27 Occupation: Neural Engineer Hometown: Chicago, IL Mystery Box Challenges Won: 0 Team Challenges Won: 4

Favorite MASTERCHEF moment: "Was definitely when I was challenged to make Gordon Ramsay's Michelin-starred dish. The anticipation to do something like this loomed over me all season. I felt very proud that I was at the top for making this dish and moved forward to the Top 4!"

What she learned from the show: "I learned a great deal from the show! The first is to stay humble and grounded through the challenges. Secondly, I found that I excelled under pressure, and the most important lesson I learned was to K.I.S.S.: Keep It Simple, Suzy. I have woven this thread of simplicity through other aspects in life, and it has created a great deal of clarity. All three judges were phenomenal mentors, and I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for them!"

MASTERCHEF is produced by Reveille and One Potato Two Potato and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Shine. Shine International handles distribution for the MASTERCHEF format. Elisabeth Murdoch, Howard T. Owens, Robin Ashbrook, Gordon Ramsay, Adeline Ramage Rooney, Pat Llewellyn, Ben Adler and Liz Cook serve as executive producers.
