Is the next challenge chosen by the winner if I got it right? What prevents him from preparing in advance his piece of work so he can (possibly) win again? This is quite paranoiac, but a legitimate question right?

Nothing prevents cheaters from cheating.
An artist without ethics is not creative and they know it.
Cheating is something you only do to yourself.

Hmm I always wondered... why we can't base ourselves on ethics rather than verification, tests, ect. I guess its part of humanity, as a built in function?
Though lets not fear it here shall we :)
