Deena Naidoo favourite to win MasterChef SA

Deena Naidoo is leading the poll to take the title of South Africa’s first MasterChef.

The man from Durban just keeps on getting stronger and stronger in the competition and is quickly becoming the viewers choice to walk away with the title.

Deena has had some close encounters with elimination along the way but seems to perform to his best ability when his back is against the wall and his confidence drops.

He has won the last two episodes, with his Fondant in episode seventeen and Chicken Ballotine in episode sixteen in which Michel Roux Jr liked the combination of pistachio, truffle and artichoke.

But Deena does have an achilles heel, he is terrible at Taste Tests, having bombed out on two occasions, embarrassing himself on the first one where the contestants were identifying ingredients in a Beef Rendang and Deena was adamant that curry’s are prepared with ghee only to discover to his horror that the Rendang is prepared with peanut oil.

As long as there are no taste tests in the run in to the final he should be fine.
