Surreyite David Jorge earned the title of Canada’s latest "MasterChef" on the CTV show Sunday evening (May 24).
Jorge, 40, told reporters he will bank his $100,000 prize money as he looks to open a restaurant.
The husband and father of two has worked in the concrete business.
On the reality-TV show Sunday, Jorge battled for the contest title with Line Pelletier, a Canadian military veteran and computer specialist from New Brunswick. They each had to create an appetizer, entree and dessert.
"I set a goal, showed up in Toronto with 50 people. Seven weeks later I walked out of there myself and it was amazing, absolutely, truly amazing," a jubilant Jorge told the Canadian Press.
