12 year old Mario wins Masterchef Junior España

12 year old Mario from Logroño (La Rioja) has won the first MasterChef Junior España on TVE-1.

The young chef beat off the competition and won with a soft and delicious malagueña.

11 year old Ana Rosa came second.

Mario has won the prize of €12,000, although he admitted later that he really wanted to be an engineer when he grows up.

The finals were held during Spanish primetime TV: 10 minutes past midnight. Rather amazingly, 5.387.000 people tuned in to watch the winner being declared, 31.6% of the viewing public.
