Season Nine Winner of MASTERCHEF Announced
After some of the most difficult challenges ever, The MASTERCHEF Finale came down to three incredible home cooks: Ashley (28), Cesar (33) and Gerron (25).
Gerron took the top prize with the following menu:
Nashville Hot Quail with Fingerling Potato Salad, and Poached Quail Eggs
Carabinero Prawns with Heirloom Grits, Shellfish Au Jus, and Crispy Shallots
Amaretto Chess Pie with a Raspberry Coulis, and Popped Sorghum
Host/Executive Producer Gordon Ramsay and fellow judges Aarón Sánchez and Joe Bastianich declared Gerron Hurt, from Louisville, KY, Season Nine Winner.
"Once you can acknowledge that you're not the greatest at something, is when self-growth truly begins. Try, fail, try again and succeed," said Gerron. "Feedback has only made me better! DREAM BIG, THEN EXECUTE!"
Gerron was awarded a $250,000 grand prize and will be a part of CAMP MASTERCHEF.
