Christan Willis On Netflix’s Pressure Cooker
Christan Willis was one of the 11 contestants of Netflix’s Pressure Cooker. Like “Top Chef” on Bravo and “Hell’s Kitchen,” the cooks on “Pressure Cooker” live together and compete against one another. In contrast to these shows, there is a “Survivor”-style element where the contestants evaluate one another. Winning requires talent and a cunning strategy that makes use of alliances because the prize pool is $100,000.
Other than the pressure cooker space itself, the series doesn’t depict any other places. According to some stories, Pressure Cooker was filmed in Los Angeles, California; nevertheless, even the candidates themselves were kept in the dark about everything, including the series’ true nature and the filming site.
Robbie Jester, a contestant from Season 1 of Pressure Cooker, said in a conversation with the Delaware News Journal “It was completely secret. We didn’t know anybody. We didn’t know we weren’t being judged by celebrity chefs. Every day is a new day and a new set of challenges,” In his interview, he mentioned that he had been flown to Los Angeles for three weeks of filming.

At that time I felt as if I was pushed into a place that I never wanted to be in surprisingly learning how to pick up the pieces has left me feeling encouraged with the ones that have also lost a parent. The sense of connection with another person going through the same process has brought me to tears at some moments but also given me a safe place to laugh, relate, and momentum to keep pushing.”
