The Winner of Ten Restaurant's 10-Course Tasting is...


Congratulations Nancy! =D Chef Nic Prong (@NicCanCook) of Ten Restaurant & Wine Bar (@tenrestaurant) will be in contact with you soon via Twitter with details on how to redeem you dinner. Congrats again and I hope you will enjoy your tasting at Ten Restaurant!

I also want to say a big THANKS to the 115 contestants who participated in the giveaway! 

To ensure my followers that I am 100% honest when I say the winner is picked RANDOMLY, I will always show you guys how I went about tracking each contest.

Here's a snapshot of the Excel spreadsheet where I tracked the #10courseatTEN stream from day one of the contest. The tracking was done using chronological order, as in, #1 was the first person who entered right the contest. To enter, the person has to tweet "I want to win a 10-COURSE TASTING MENU FOR TWO at @tenrestaurant! http://bit.ly/J48Zdv #10courseatTEN". Once the contest was over and everybody's entries were accounted for in my spreadsheet, I went to check if they actually followed me on Twitter (I also sent the below list of contestants to chef Nic Prong at Ten Restaurant to look over).

After weeding out the people that did not follow Ten Restaurant, Chef Nic Prong and I on Twitter, I was left with 101 contestants. I went to "True Random Number Generator" from random.org to randomly pick a winner for me from 1 to 101.
