Congratulations to Jennifer Behm on claiming the coveted title of MasterChef USA! It’s been a tough road, filled with incredible highs and disastrous-epic-kitchen-fails, but it’s all over now that the blonde real estate agent from Delaware claimed the $250,000 cash prize last night.
Jennifer beat out the highly talented — and humble – Adrien Nieto, whose chocolate torte (type of flourless “cake”) left something to be desired in the final cook off, which required each chef to compose a three course meal. While Adrien’s beer braised short ribs wowed all three of the judges, it was Jennifer’s flawlessly seared scallops, perfectly cooked stuffed quail, and poached pears that ultimately wooed the top chefs into declaring her the season two winner.
Reportedly, Jennifer has set up a catering company named Pink Martini since recording the final episode of MasterChef. I bet that 250-grand paycheck was a helpful chunk of change to get that business up and running.
And there you have it . . . another cooking competition down the drain. Ready for season three? So are we.

Think long and hard if you could potentially cope with the insane Gordon Ramsay and his #!@*$ mouth.
Did any of you watch the finale? If so, what did you think? Are you happy with the judge’s decision?
