Masterchef NZ’s final episode ends on a high note after the series suffers a ratings slump--UPDATED

But, as Auckland physiotherapist Tim Read was crowned as Masterchef NZ 2015 last night, the show’s final episode went out on a ratings high. PLUS: Seven weeks on, Story's ratings are no match for Seven Sharp's.
