I found that extremely unfair on Andy and Mindy.

Audra is well lucky, she sliced fish and made some dressings in 90 minutes: that's a fucking joke. She really grinds my gears something fierce too.

Having said that, if you plate a cooked fish dish up and you don't just undercook the fish, you leave a large chunk of it raw you are always going to fail. Still, if Julia and Audra weren't allowed to continue plating during service, like I thought the rules had been for the last 4 years, then I think Mindy would have survived having at least gone out of her comfort zone.

So, is tonight the ultimate final, or is that still going to be on Sunday like previous years?

I particularly liked when Matt goes "I like the idea of plating at the table" ....erm....what?

1. No-one else has been allowed to do that (apart from in challenges that required it, like when they replicated that chocolate thing from Quay)
2. It's bollocks. She ran out of time, she didnt have a dish.

Tonight is ultimate final as the Olympics starts on Friday so no-one will be watching Channel 10 for a while.

Next round Has to be Andy's. Seafood basket idea is win, and I'm sure it'll make the count even.

I'm nervous for him about that last dessert though...

so a seafood basket is inventive and lamb chops not? I'm confused... I guess they have to even it up before the final round

I would hate to work for Mindy.

He very pointedly said "a Zumbo kitchen" though, so maybe he meant somewhere other than Sydney? Is he opening shops elsewhere?

Anyway, yay for Andy! I think I might start using the term 'packing it' again!

Apparently 'Matt Meringue' is trending wildly on Twitter at present, lol.

Who would've thought a week ago that neither Mindy or Audra would be in the final 2! I was so glad that Audra was eliminated. She once again had the problem of not listening to the judges. They wanted a "hot" dish and an "entree". That was clearly a mostly cold dish salad and there was enough food on that plate for a main course. Based on that task she deserved to go out.

After the entree Julia seemed to struggle though and Andy excelled. Having won every challenge in finals week except for last night's entree, he was truly a deserving winner. Andy would have to be my favourite winner of all 4 seasons, I think that he is going to do very well and seems to be the most popular winner that the show has had too. I noticed that he mentioned the other night that he has never travelled and wants to travel to discover different foods and cultures. That could work well for a TV series.

Now into All Stars tonight!!

I think thats why everyone liked him.

Julia was the worst cook on the show and it was so clearly fixed that it was enough to make you vomit
Adam was fine but a bit arrogant and hard to warm to, also it was clear he was going to win
Kate was a good cook

But Andy actually improved, you could see him get better, his plating became really good, it was cool to finally see someone excel and not win because of a stroke of luck.

Julia wasn't a bad cook man, come on. It's just that she's a specialist and dessert is where her talent is. She'll learn a lot from the Pastry Chef apprenticeship with Zumbo.

This is the second time a 'dessert specialist' lost in the final cook-off in the grand finale in making a dessert (first one was the snowball dessert) LOL

Very happy Andy won instead of Julia...gotta give him a lot of credit in improving week-in and week-out throughout the season and doing it with honour...but hated Julia a bit less when her family came out...

Yeah good post and my thoughts too.

Julia should never have won the right to the title 'Masterchef' just by excelling in one particular area. Glad the judges made the right choice last night. Although some people may find it hard to believe also that Andy the 24 yr old sparky is now Australia's newest Masterchef, but that run home over the last few nights showed he thoroughly deserved it.

Julia with 15k and a paid internship with Zumbo must be stoked with that after losing, that's almost as good as a win for her in terms of the internship and will set up her career for the rest of her life.

Just saw The Grand Final just now as i missed it last night as i was working , i was amazed how Riggged Masterchef is, especially on the first round, Julia gets 9 from two of Judges WTF, that was scripted for sure, Then right at the end Fucked Julia Getting an apprenticeship WTF, she dosn't derserve that at all imo ,

i don't know how in hell Julia got through to this grrand final when she should've got kicked weeks ago , she was in 10 Eliminations yet she avoided all them all, i will say this again Masterchef australia is rigged, just like all the the rest of Australia's relality shows, no wonder i have more fun watching Us Masterchef Than Our Edition, the us edition has humour but they do it right Unlike our edition , next year i'm going to start watching Nz Editon,

them Channel 10 Produers really need to fix what they done to masterchef, plus they cut masterchef by few weeks because of Olympics, why could't they start their shows a little earlier,

Ps - sorry for my spelling mistakes i'm really annnoyed what they did in the masterchef Final

All the female contestants annoyed me to an extent this year.. seemed like some gigantic clucky superfriends womens support group

Glad Andy won, seemed a bit against the odds with how many bitches there were in the second half of the season.

guess from the following pattern we can predict next years winner will be a with vag:
s1 - female
s2 - male
s3 - female
s4 - male

What the fuck are you talking about?
Please give one legitimate reason why Masterchef would be rigged. Go.

I love how cheeky they are with the judges, quite funny.

I also noticed the lego-man necklace Dani was wearing, glad she's taking feedback from the show in good nature I really thought Yellow team was going to be dud but they don't seem too bad, just Kumar will hold them back.

Oh and funny too when Hayden said he trained with Vincent Gadan in front of Zumbo, waiting for him to turn and say 'why don't you put that in your promo?' haha

Was overseas from the Italy trip so finally just got to the end, already knew the winner. When I was away I msgd my dad tripping balls when I saw the headline that Andy'd won. But in that little time I missed he improved out of sight, really something to see. Hayden Quinn just lost his novelty factor as a mere place getter.

This year was a massive return to form after the last season which was its worst. I was happy with all the food in the top 10, last year I was shaking my head. Wonder how it'll go in Melbourne? Masterchef's golden years were in Sydney and everything the city offered helped make a huge part of the show from the beaches to the restaurants and the harbour. I'll watch season 5 and keep viewing till they can it, it's just easy viewing I'm so familiar with now.
