Our Gourmet Survivor II outcome is unbelievable on two counts:
(1) We raised, in total, $4198 for the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. That’s unbelievable. I’m so wowed by this, you have no idea. So we’ve done a great thing here with Gourmet Survivor II!
(2) I have totaled up the results over and over and over again for this final round and I keep getting the same results:
Exactly the same. EXACTLY. Is this a tie? Is that our result? I think so! Do we have two Gourmet Survivor Champions? I believe that’s the case. So allow me to congratulate our winners:
Your work in this contest was exemplary. Honestly. I’d eat at your tables gladly anyday. Please e-mail me privately with your mailing addresses and a few cookbooks that you like and I’ll send something your way. Your greatest reward, though, is the knowledge that you helped raise over $4000 for victims of a devastating catastrophe. So thank you so much for doing all the work you did these past few weeks. I had so much fun running this and I was inspired by all your work. And on that note: thanks so so so so much to our coaches/hosts—David, Pim, Derrick, and Jeremy. Your cooperation surely contributed to the grand amount of money we raised. And of course to our eliminated contestants, Melissa and Kathy, and our scavenger hunt contributors—another big thanks. And finally to you, the readers, without your votes and generous pledges we’d never have gotten as far along as we did. So again, thank you thank you thank you. It’s been an extraordinary run.
Much congratulations Jason and William! You done well! Go celebrate!
And Gourmet Survivor II is now ended. Peace be with you all. [Dramatic music plays. Curtain.]
