And the MasterChef SA season 3 winner is…

Johannesburg – Tensions were high when the last two chefs standing took to the kitchen for one last judgement at the MasterChef SA season 3 live finale held at Sandton Convention Centre.

For their final test the top two had to complete three separate challenges guided by culinary legend and MasterChef Professionals judge Marco Pierre White!

In what was a nail biting finale, Roxi Wardman was crowned SA’s third MasterChef winner. She walks away with R500 000 in cash from Robertson's, a brand new VW Tiguan, R100 000 worth in food from Woolworths, a trip to the French winelands for her and a partner, as well as a year's worth of wines from Nederburg, and a glamorous five night stay at the Maia Luxury Resort and Spa in the Seychelles, courtesy of Tsogo Sun.

As the runner-up, Sipho walks away with R100 000 in cash from Robertson's.
