The results are in. The newest MasterChef winner is Luca Manfe, a
31-year-old restaurant manager. Luca, who is Italian-born, is the first
man to win the MasterChef title. The likeable Luca was slected to
audition for season three, but did not make it through, although he was
good enough to be told to “try again.” Try again he did and made it
through all the way to the end. But it was close. Competitior Natasha
Crnjac was such a close second that judge Gordan Ramsey wanted to call
it a tie.
Luca’s win not only gives up to future male “home cooks” on the show,
but also shows that immigrant hopes of attaing the American dream are
alive and well.
