'MasterChef' Finale: Who Won The Closest Finish Ever? (VIDEO)

After a hard-fought season it was down to two tough competitors on "MasterChef." Christine Ha is the first legally blind contestant in the history of the show, while Josh fought his way back into the game after getting eliminated in Week 12.

For their final competition, they were given a straightforward task: Create and cook a three course meal in two hours. Josh made some bold and creative choices with his cooking, while Christine kept it in her wheelhouse, with Asian comfort food.

In the end, Gordon Ramay declared it the closest finish in the history of the show. Then, Christine Ha was revealed as the new MasterChef.

"After all the obstacles I’ve been through," Ha said. "Going up against such awesome, amazing cooks …This has been the most amazing experience, seriously.”

Ha took home the top prize of $250,000 and an opportunity to publish her own cookbook.

"MasterChef" has been renewed for a fourth season, which will air Summer 2013 on Fox.
