Whitney Miller may be young, but she's fierce in the kitchen.
The 22-year-old college student from Mississippi is the first winner of Fox's reality cooking show, "MasterChef." Her competitors were older, but the southern girl from the small town of Poplarville didn't back down. The finale brought her face to face with a 29-year-old lead software engineer from Massachusetts.
He prepared beef Wellington for his entrée while Whitney prepared a southern fried chicken breast over creamed collard greens. But when she was transferring the chicken to the plate, one of the worst things that could happen in a reality cooking competition did: The chicken fell to the floor.
Ringo Starr has a lot to celebrate. He has a new CD - "Live at the Greek Theatre 2008" - out July 27th, he's embarked on a new tour with his all-star band and the former Beatle celebrates his 70th birthday today.
When it comes to modern day musicians, Starr said he supports them all. "It could be Megadeth or Lady Gaga, and Elton John thrown in the middle, it's what we do," the music icon said.
Clearly, the music industry is vastly different today, with some musicians stumbling upon "instant success." Starr, on the other hand, joined bands, worked his butt off, "lived" in clubs and ended up in "the greatest band in the land." But, he said, modern technology like the Internet prevents musicians from having to go "crawling to record companies."
