Top Chef's Marjorie Meek-Bradley was sent packing last night on the show. And while viewers were definitely disappointed to see the departure of the last woman standing, Meek-Bradley was more understanding of the judges' decision.

We chatted with her to get her take on the season, including who she wants to win.

Marjorie Meek-Bradley: Jenn Carroll. She is an inspiration. I basically wanted to be her when I watched Season 6.
