Tonight on MasterChef was the season five finale of the hit cooking competition and it all came down to the wire. The top three cooks in America had throttled the competition and it was down to Courtney Lapresi, Leslie Gilliams and Elizabeth Cauvel. Who were you rooting for to win the MasterChef competition this season?

After Elizabeth impressed the judges with her delicious cooking, she was safe and able to move on to the show’s finale showdown. Safe upstairs, she provided some funny commentary on the happenings in the kitchen below. She noted how Courtney talked to herself to reassure herself that things were going her way — while Leslie was in a frantic panic over how things were progressing.
At the end of the baking challenge, it appeared that Leslie had the competition in the bag…. Until the judges got to his Boston creme pie. While it was better presented than Courtney’s version of the dish, he made a rookie mistake and used salt instead of sugar. Unfortunately for him, that was enough to send him packing back to Malibu. BOO!
Since, it was down to being between Courtney and Elizabeth and it was obvious from the start that the show’s producers were angling for the former
stripper dancer to win. Elizabeth’s poor husband passed out before the news was announced and still we were hoping that Gordon Ramsay would say her name instead of Courtney’s. Unfortunately, our new MasterChef winner is Courtney Lapresi and we are unimpressed with the results.
