Second place was awarded to Levana Gogman, and third went to Leon Shwabsky. The other two contenders who made it to the season’s final episode were Dor Damari and Itay Wallach.

Rubel was considered a prominent contender from the season’s start, in much part due to her stormy countenance and the many squabbles that surrounded her- many of which were related to issues of race and identity. Earlier in the season, such tensions led to the eventual disqualification of two contestants, father and son Roni and Gili Miley.

The fifth season of the show received relatively low rating, in comparison with earlier ones- apparently due to its being broadcast in the summer.
