Who knew that WSOP bracelet winner David Williams could make it to the finale of the MasterChef Season 7 competition? British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay pointed out that it was the first time in MasterChef history that there will be a three-way battle for the coveted MasterChef title for this season.
However, on the finale episode that aired last Wednesday night, David missed out on the $250,000 grand prize, cookbook deal and the title of MasterChef. David faced off against Las Vegas DJ Shaun O'Neale and Kentucky school teacher Brandi Mudd.
David's cured salmon appetizer worked out well, but his main course with guinea hen didn't as the meat was undercooked. His dessert included gold popping candy which seemed to get overall strong reviews. However, it still wasn't enough as competitor Shaun's tart is "f***ing delicious" according to Ramsay.
In the end, Shaun O'Neale won, having had the best two (out of three) dishes overall.
David said, "I gave it everything I had, it just wasn't enough to win. I'm happy for my Vegas brother. He was the best on day 1.The best throughout the show and the best in the finale. Congrats."
He added, "Thank you Gordon Ramsay. It was an honor to cook for you and Christina Tosi and all the guest judges."
