The winner of the latest season of MasterChef Canada will be determined tonight—and the two finalists are from either end of the country.
Michael Griffiths, a mathematician from Richmond Hill, Ontario, was eliminated on the June 12 episode, which featured a pop-up restaurant challenge.
His departure from the show revealed the two finalists:
- 19-year-old tile-setter assistant Beccy Stables, from Sherwood Park, Alberta
- 31-year-old small-business owner Andy Hay, from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Stables, who is the youngest participant to compete on the show, had won the pop-up restaurant challenge on the June 12 episode.
The finale will feature the two home cooks going head-to-head in a competition that will require them to create a three-course meal within three hours.
Although the season began with four competitors from B.C., the last Vancouver home cook to remain in the competition was financial advisor and rowing coach Eugene Cheng (whose hometown is Victoria, B.C.).
He departed from the show alongside account executive Nadia Rehman, from Markham, Ontario, in a double-elimination episode on June 5.
The winner will receive $100,000 and the title of MasterChef Canada.
The finale will be aired tonight (June 19) at 6 p.m. PST. on CTV.More
