Kamini wins MasterChef SA

Kamini Pather

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.

Leandri vs Kamani, who will win MasterChef SA?

MCSAIt’s the big showdown, the moment millions have been waiting for. Who between Leandri van der Wat and Kamani Pather will be the new MasterChef SA winner? I cannot believe the season is just about done, but by this time tomorrow we’ll know who the new MasterChef winner will be.

I’d try and guess, but it’s too close to call. Do you have a favourite? Do you think you know who will walk off with the title? If so, sound off in the comment section below. Otherwise, I’ll bring you all the action tomorrow. Just follow me on Twitter: @JasonVonBerg, as I tweet up a storm for the finale tomorrow night. I’ll also be interviewing the winner on Thursday morning, so if you have questions holler!

Until then, may the best chef win 😉
