Ultimately, Sashi Cheliah was crowned the winner of MasterChef.

"'I never thought this would happen," he told TV WEEK of his win.

"I was very happy that I was able to achieve something that I had been dreaming about, and doing it in front of my family, friends and other contestants… it was a very emotional moment for me. I was literally jumping up and down screaming and cheering. It's very hard to explain but it was a very beautiful feeling."
