DH and I both love this show but were sat here wondering tonight whats happened to previous winners? Anybody know?

they keep going on about winning the competition changing their lives forever but I can't remember anyone thats won in previous years and I don't think there's been a what heppened next programme has there?!?

I'm not sure, but then again, I don't eat at top restaurants etc so presumably they are employed at one of those...?

And did you see the bloke who burnt the pork chop in the first week?!! Fab!!

I know bless him, there surely must be a qualifying period which he got through - his big break and he burnt his chop grin

dizzydixies Thu 15-Jan-09 21:45:54

DH thinks that was one of the restaurat kitchens that they went to this series too?

yes it was dizzy. they showed her in there I think

dizzydixies Thu 15-Jan-09 21:50:00

nope, might google her blush

dizzydixies Thu 15-Jan-09 21:53:26

here we are

dizzydixies Thu 15-Jan-09 21:54:14

so she won in 2005

who was 2006, 2007 and last year?!?

CantSleepWontSleep Thu 15-Jan-09 22:03:11

One of them (2007 I think) was that Peter bloke - oldish guy - was in final with Dean - young builder or something, and a lady who did lots of indian cookery.

beansprout Thu 15-Jan-09 22:06:58

That bloke with the curly hair (James?) won it last year.

beansprout Thu 15-Jan-09 22:07:53

What I loved about chop bloke was a) he just chucked some sauce on and b) he had only got through as he made pudding and Wallace is such a sucker for anything sweet!

CantSleepWontSleep Thu 15-Jan-09 22:10:37

Ah, 2007 was actually Steve. Remember him now I've googled.

Oh yes, James.

CantSleepWontSleep Thu 15-Jan-09 22:14:02

Here's the year I was remembering - 2006 it seems.

fishie Thu 15-Jan-09 22:22:25

i saw james on something recently. didn't like him either.

fishie Thu 15-Jan-09 22:25:18

2006 that boiled kumquat thing looks vile.

CantSleepWontSleep Thu 15-Jan-09 22:43:01

I didn't like Peter - was a snooty whatsit who thought he was so much better than the other contestants, when really he wasn't. I'd like to know what's happened to Dean since. He was very nice.

OllieWollieWoo Fri 16-Jan-09 12:31:46

I'm sure I saw Dean on some daytime show a few months ago doing a cookery section - remember thinking he was really good!

Molesworth Fri 16-Jan-09 12:34:39

I saw big round Steven (2007 winner) assisting Sophie Grigson on some cookery show whose name I forget.

I might have dreamed this, but I'm sure I saw a "Where are they now?" programme in which Digger Dean had set up his own dinner party catering service.

DP has eaten at Wahaca and says it's fab.
