George Calombaris didn't think it possible, but it turns out lawyers can indeed cook.

For those of us who have been avidly (or tragically) glued to our television sets for the past few months to see which amateur cook is going to take out the coveted title of the strangely addictive reality TV show MasterChef, the wait it almost over.

And chances are the winner will be a lawyer.

South Australian lawyer Adam Liaw has made it to the grand finale - at the expense of former Clayton Utz lawyer Claire Winton Burn, who was eliminated from the top three in last night's episode - and will face off against fellow South Australian Callum Hann, a mere engineering student.

But Liaw, who gave up his job as a media lawyer in Tokyo to compete on the show, is firm favourite to win the final, given his intelligence, creativity, technique and cool hair.

Liaw is the last of four lawyers who made it into the top 24 contestants, including loveable Melbourne property lawyer Peter Kritikides and Queensland law student Sharnee Rawson.

If Liaw wins, he'll prove that he can turn his hand to pretty much anything.

He was, after all, a child prodigy, entering university at age 16 and becoming a lawyer at age 21.

And considering the televised federal election debate was moved in order to avoid a timeslot clash with the hugely popular show's grand finale, maybe Liaw should consider entering politics too.
