It was not an easy task for the judges of the final at last night’s Northern Exposure held at the Great Northern Hotel in Byron Bay.

The event, which has been running since September 18, saw Tess Latu win the first semifinal two weeks ago and Chris Mallory win last week’s semi.

Last weekend saw Hailey-Marie announced as the wildcard to make up the finals trio.

Judges for last night’s event were Dean Kato, Garrett Kato, Ben Livermore and Scott Owen, and the contestants pretty much made their job hell by delivering three hours of awesome entertainment to the punters at the Northern – but, at the end of the day there has to be a winner and, after extended deliberation, Chris Mallory was announced as the 2013 winner.

Chris received $500 while runner-up Tess scored $250 and Hailey-Marie pocketed $150.

Organisers were very pleased with the event and there is a plan to stage more of the same at the hotel.
