[Update: Steven has a very gracious post about his win on his blog.]
The winner of Masterchef 2007 is Steven Wallis, a trend analyst from London. Here's how he looked when he was proclaimed the victor.
As with previous seasons the final three-course original menu test was the one deciding factor for determining the winner. While both Ben and Hannah tripped up a bit on at least one of their courses, Steven really excelled with all three of his dishes.
Unlike last season, where the perceived failings of eventual winner Peter in tasks leading up to that final three-course test lead to some dissatisfaction about his being declared the winner over crowd favorite (and hottie) Dean, this season's finalists were fairly even in the tasks during the final week. For me at least there was no clear favorite going into the final episode.
