The MasterChef winner 2010 made history last night. Whitney Miller was not only the MasterChef winner 2010, she was the first MasterChef winner for the American version. The show first made it big in Britain, but FOX brought it over to America this summer under the flag of Gordon Ramsey. For the first season finale, it had to compete with three other reality show finales airing last night. But Whitney Miller overcame the longest odds to become the MasterChef winner 2010.
The last four contestants for the two-hour finale were Whitney Miller, David Miller, Sheetal Bhagat and Lee Knaz. Before long, it was the two unrelated Millers who were facing off in the final meal. However, something nearly happened to end things early.
Whitney was the MasterChef winner 2010 in spite of her fried chicken falling to the floor after she had cooked it. She had to act fast to re-cook it and clean it up, yet it took her seven minutes to finish up again.
Once she did, she included it with a meal that featured a crispy corncake with turnip green pesto and a white chocolate bread pudding. This drew more raves from Ramsey and the judges than David Miller’s scallop ceviche, beef Wellington and nectarine crepe.
With that, the MasterChef winner 2010 choice went in favor of 22-year-old Whitney Miller. The college student won $250,000 and a publishing deal for her own cook book. In addition, she has the distinction of being the first American MasterChef.
Like many other reality shows in America, this one was taken from overseas. Britain’s own long running MasterChef empire spread to the U.S. this summer with FOX’s favorite chef, Ramsey, as host and co-producer. The show has already been renewed for a second season, at an undetermined date.
The selection of the MasterChef winner 2010 aired alongside an even bigger reality cooking show, as Top Chef also wrapped up its latest season. For that matter, America’s Got Talent and Big Brother 12 also ended their seasons last night.
It was a night filled with summer reality TV finales, as they had their last hurrah before the scripted shows — and fall reality shows — take their place. The MasterChef winner 2010 now joins Michael Grimm, Hayden Moss, and Kevin Sbranga as the new reality champions embarking on a new life.
