TORONTO, June 19, 2018 /CNW/ - Following an intense 12-episode culinary battle, judges Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung, and Claudio Aprile revealed tonight that 19-year-old Beccy Stables (@beccystables) from Sherwood Park, Alta., is the winner of MASTERCHEF CANADA Season 5. Cooking her way through an epic culinary showdown, Beccy was awarded the much sought-after title of MASTERCHEF CANADA and the $100,000 grand prize over runner-up Andy Hay (@andyseastcoastkitchen_), a small business owner from Dartmouth, N.S.
"I'm the new MASTERCHEF CANADA! This trophy is going to change every aspect of my life – I can finally pursue my dream of becoming a chef," said Stables. "I've realized that dreams are possible, they're not just dreams. I am not going back to tile setting; I just want to cook in a restaurant."
