After weeks of chopping, frying, baking and basically every flavour of ice cream imaginable being made, MasterChef is done and dusted for another year.

On Tuesday night’s grand final, Justin Narayan, Pete Campbell, and Kishwar Chowdhury battled it out to take the MasterChef crown and whipped up a spectacular array of dishes.

But it was Justin who unanimously wowed judges Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen and emerged victorious.

“Find people that believe in you. Back yourself. Go hard and hopefully you’ll surprise yourself! Whoever’s reading this I love you,” Justina took to Instagram after his win.


Ahead of the finale, Justin was the bookies’ favourite to take out the competition. 

With odds at 1.10 and 1.15 on TAB and Sportsbet respectively, the Perth-based church relationship manager led the pack.

Justin proved he was a force to be reckoned with from the beginning when he whipped up his mum’s chicken curry.

“MasterChef means for me the chance to chase a dream…it has the ability to drastically change your life,” he told Ten.

Ahead of the premiere, judge Jock Zonfrillo spoke to WHO about the incredible talents of this year’s contestants.

“They serve up some of the best dishes that we’ve ever seen on any season of MasterChef,” he revealed.

“The show’s tagline ‘ordinary people, extraordinary food’ couldn’t be more true this year. We look at one another sometimes and can’t believe what we’re seeing and getting to eat. It’s a privilege to share this crazy experience with these guys.”
