And the winner is ... Rhys wins the top prize worth $200,000.

Rhys Badcock has won MasterChef: The Professionals with his ability to replicate a Marco Pierre White dish from memory.

Badcock won $200,000 and the chance to work with some of the world's best chef's for taking out Network Ten reality cooking series.

Winner: Rhys.

Mind games ... Rhys Badock.

He scored a total 50 points from three challenges to defeat Rhett Willis and Sarah Knights, who tied for second place, by two points.

Badcock, who splits his time living in Byron Bay and Broome, set-up the win during the second challenge.

The trio had to make a dish made by judge and UK celebrity chef and judge Marco Pierre White.

White first prepared the leek and lobster terrine in front of the three finalists who then had to replicate the dish.

Badcock decided not to read the recipe on offer but make it from memory.

Amazingly he scored nine out of 10 from White and eight from MasterChef's resident critic Matt Preston.

Knights and Willis didn't fare as well which proved the difference on the evening.

Badcock almost came unstuck during the final round because of an entree blunder.

The three finalists had to prepare a three-course meal for 120 chefs for the final challenge.

Willis, Knights and Badcock each picked two chefs, who had been eliminated during the series, to help out.

That was nearly Badcock's downfall.

The 27-year-old asked one his lieutenants Kiah Blanco to Cryovac the black pudding before boiling it.

But the black pudding went in the pot without being Cryovaced, or vacuum wrapped in plastic before cooking, and it drew criticism from Preston during tasting.

It cost Badcock slightly but not enough to deny him first prize.

Willis and Knights both received $10,000 for finishing tied for second.
