Unsurprisingly, Chan was trending on social media last night after her win but oddly enough, Ungermann’s name was nowhere to be seen.

Ungermann’s decision to make ice-cream for two out of three three dishes was not lost on Chan’s supporters, with many voicing their frustration and somewhat amusement at his choice to roll with what has become his signature dish in the final challenge. One user tweeted:  “This is the #masterchefau final and Ben Ungermann makes ice cream for the umpteenth time. So much growth”
