Why does a reversible process do the most work?

A reversible process does the most work because all of the heat is converted into work, instead of the energy being lost as heat.

My TA told me that reversible processes do the most work because instead of the work being performed instantly and staying constant, the work is gradually done which should look like this. Then if we take the integral of the graph we can adds that reversible processes do the most work.

Reversible v Irreversible process
