Ok time for last couple of @masterchefau
shoutouts. First it's @diana
.chan.au and @ben_ungermann
. Two amazing finalists you can ask for. Both of them worked there ass off and cooked amazing food week after week. They developed their own styles through the season and captured our imaginations. Just having 1 point difference in the end says a lot about them.
Disy is an amazing person. She cares about everyone else around her and always supporting others even in intense situations. We saw that in Semis when she was comforting @karlie_verkerk
. the way she has beautifully incorporated her heritage and story to her cooking, I can only dream of doing it one day. @makaa1985
you are a lucky man! She is so fast and precise in the kitchen and her tenacity always amazes me. A worthy champion!
Ben is probably the most humble and hard working person you will ever meet. He is immensely talented but he never takes it for granted. I think the judges @garymehigan @gcalombaris
mentioned several times him being the most improved cook in the competition. He is kind hearted and a family man. He really encouraged me a lot during the short time I was there. It must have been so tough for him to stay away from @aliciastarmiller
and his family for such a long time. With all these great attributes I as sure amazing things are on his way.
Congratulations to both of them #kitchenninja
for all their achievements and for making the standard so high this season. #Masterchef #MasterChefAU #champion
