Sophie, Troy win Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars.

4 beverage products went head to head, but only two walked away with prizes in Nine reality finale.

Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars last night awarded NSW’s Sophie Hood and Victorian Troy Benjamin (Team Gordon) with $250,000 each and a year’s worth of business mentorship.

Troy Benjamin won chef Gordon Ramsay over with his Indigenous tea product Blak Brews, defeating finalist Aaron from South Australia who created cocktails in a bag, MXTology.

Sophie Hood convinced Janine Allis with her hangover relief Seoul Tonic, edging out WA stepfather Mason and his event-friendly health drinks Kommunity Brew.

All four finalists were beverage products despite the series choosing 14 products across food and drink.

The grand final saw the 4 finalists pitching their products and business plans to an audience at The Edge, Federation Square.

But after 10 episodes it was Sophie and Troy who convinced the show’s hosts to back them for 12 months.

“No words! I just think that this is going to be huge and there’s no better person to be able to take this to the next level with,” said Sophie Hood.

Troy Benjamin told Gordon Ramsay, “Super excited to work with you and, listen and learn. Tthat’s what our culture is about. So we’ll have a nice little campfire together.”
