The 'MasterChef' Judges Close Out 11 Years On The Show With One Last Perfect Score

An absolute nail-biter of a finish, Gary, Matt and George's last scores in the 'MasterChef' kitchen were perfect.

We mean 'perfect' quite literally, too.

In an incredibly tense finale, Simon, Larissa and Tessa were battling it out to see who would become the 2019 'MasterChef'.

Each cooking three courses of their own design, after their mains were served there was just a single point putting Larry ahead of Tessa. It all came down to dessert.

Both desserts were well-received with the judges, with Tessa scoring a total score of 77 out of 90, meaning Larissa needed 23 points to secure her the top prize and the title of 'MasterChef'.

And for their final scores as the 'MasterChef' judges, Gary, Matt and George each delivered a perfect 10 out of 10.

Larry, who would have only been 11 when 'MasterChef' first went to air, was a little lost for words when it came to her win.

"I've got you three to thank for it honestly," she told the judges, "you've seen me -- how I've grown since I first came to this competition. You guys are like my three dads! You've kind of brought me up in this way," she said laughing.

Ahead of the finale, it was announced George, Matt and Gary would not be returning to the franchise after 11 years in the judging seats.

What a better way to round out 11 years of eating, using tweezers to serve plates and screaming about how many minutes are left in a cook than with 10s across the board.
