In case you missed it, Kamini Pather walked off with the title of MasterChef SA last night. The 29-year-old food blogger and radio personality from Cape Town beat out Leandri van der Wat and the other contestants to win the big prize… or should I say prizes. R400 000.00 in cash, a massive voucher from Woolworths, a new Golf7 courtesy of VW, a holiday to the Seychelles and a nice little hamper from Nederburg. Not too shabby huh?
A lot of people said it was predictable and a few others weren’t very happy with her winning, but bottom line is the judges thought she was slightly ahead of Leandri and therefore worthy of a win. Your thoughts?
Either way, I think both of them did really well and regardless of whether Leandri won or not, we haven’t seen the last of her. In fact, I was chatting to a few of the other contestants last night and they’re all doing very well for themselves. Sanet has opened a cooking school and she’s doing a lot of corporate cooking demos. Neil has opened his own consultancy firm, which I will tell you more about soon and the others have offers on the table that they can’t say too much about just yet… the famous celebrity statement 🙂 So it shows how big a platform like this is. Big up to them all.
I’m going to be interviewing Kamini in a bit, so if you have any questions, holler and I’ll try and squeeze them in.
