Gabrielle Reyes: Why Gabrielle Reyes Is Glad She Lost Supermarket Stakeout – Exclusive

Gabrielle Reyes is a person full of sunshine and light. At least, that’s the impression you get from her TikTok page, One Great Vegan, which features popular videos of her singing the recipes for the colorful, tropical vegan dishes she creates. She seems like someone who wouldn’t want to deal with the intense competition of a TV cooking contest, but nevertheless, she appeared on Food Network’s “Supermarket Stakeout” (via YouTube). Her sunny disposition and propensity to break out into song survived the competition, but unfortunately, she didn’t: She was eliminated in the first round.
Despite impressing the judges with her vegan version of “tuna salad” made with lentils, she ultimately got the boot because she wasn’t able to find any bread, which was a serious disadvantage in a round where the competitors were tasked with making stacked sandwiches. Despite her early elimination, Reyes is happy she appeared on the show, which she called “the craziest thing I’ve ever done.” In fact, she wasn’t sad to be sent home at all. She revealed why in an exclusive interview with Mashed.

For Reyes, it was never really about the competition
