Chris Forrest wins Celebrity MasterChef SA

Photo source: WINNER: Local comedian Chris Forest scoops up the title of the first South African Celebrity Masterchef winner.

The final two contestants, singer Patricia Lewis and Forrest, cooked up a storm for the last time on 10 May, where they had to whip up a seafood dish. After an intense finale, Forest won the title thanks to his two point lead on Lewis.

Forrest earned a fantastic R185 000 for his charity of choice, Villa of Hope in Soweto. Lewis didn’t leave empty handed, but collected a total of R175 000 for her charity, Food and Trees for Africa, which is based in Wendywood.

Forrest told News24 that the pressure of the competition was extreme. “Take what you see on TV and times it by 1 000 and that’s how you feel. Your nerves are completely shattered.”

When asked how it feels to have won the title, Forrest said, “It’s very surreal; I have no other way to describe it. I do realise that I was very lucky. There were some really great cooks in the kitchen with me and probably deserved it more than me. I’m glad that I entered.”
