My Kitchen Rules competitor profiles
Ellee McClymont | On 07, Mar 2014
Things are heating up on My Kitchen Rules, but if you’re behind the times fear not â€“ weâ€™ve got you sorted with this profile of MKRâ€™s current competitors.Â
Cathy and Anna
Definitely the uptight country ladies of the competition, they back up their brutal criticisms with some very decent cooking. We used to hate them, and then Cathy went all â€˜cute mumâ€™ and cried when the judges frothed her apple pies. So now we love her.
Harry and Christo
Iâ€™m still not sure how theyâ€™re still in the competition. Going from stuff-up to stuff-up, Harry and Christo manage to get by in 2nd last place, usually due to the fact that they are shamelessly flirting with the female contestants. Everybody loves the underdog; so donâ€™t be surprised if they stick around for a while.
Josh and Danielle
When Josh and Danielle arenâ€™t getting it right with unique and wacky taste combos, theyâ€™re failing miserably. Theyâ€™re inconsistent in the kitchen and relatively boring as far as weird onscreen personalities go â€“ letâ€™s hope they do something interesting soon.
Thalia and Bianca
These two are bound to make every uni student cooking mi goreng with tuna for dinner feel like a failure. Theyâ€™re MKRâ€™s version of Lorde, in that they are young overachievers from a small island (Tasmania). Also, it was very awkward when Harry and Christo were hitting on them, and I would like to see a lot less of that.
Carly and Tresne
If Carly and Tresne were a font, theyâ€™d be Curlz MT for sure. Bubbly blondes who say things like â€˜compliment sandwichâ€™, these gate crashers were initially weird and annoying, but now theyâ€™re a crowd favourite. They are by far the nicest competitors, and they manage to juggle their liberal use of the word â€˜mateâ€™ with some top notch cooking skills.
Uel and Shannelle
If these guys werenâ€™t so adorable, Iâ€™d hate them. They are pretty shocking cooks to be honest, probably because they spend so much time getting lost in each others eyes and reminiscing about their honeymoon. Despite all this, I donâ€™t want them to get kicked out, because theyâ€™ll be really sad, and I donâ€™t want that strain on their marriage this early.
Annie and Jason
They make cheese, and Annie always wears pigtails. Therefore, theyâ€™re awesome and I hope they win. Last week, they made breakfast quesadillas which looked amazing. All signs point to the fact that Annie and Jason should be my friends and personal chefs.
Chloe and Kelly
Channel 7 marketed Chloe and Kelly as the â€˜team you love to hateâ€™ this season. However, a few weeks in and theyâ€™re starting to grow on everyone. Theyâ€™ve calmed down with the diva attitudes (or at least made it more hilarious), and in the shadow of the chaos that was David and Corrine, Chloe and Kelly have zenned out, and held their own in the food department. I hope they stick around for a bit of comic relief.
Helena and Vicki
These two are definitely the hipsters of MKR â€“ theyâ€™re fashionable, funny, got a bit of attitude, and they absolutely owned it in the dinner party competition round. Thereâ€™s a bit of antagonism between these twins and fellow young femmes Chloe and Kelly â€“ best-case scenario thereâ€™s a fight.
Bree and Jessica
Bree and Jessica flew under the radar as gate crashers, but make no mistake, theyâ€™re definitely here to stay. Keeping things close to their chest, theyâ€™re polite and donâ€™t really make for good trash TV, but their cooking speaks for itself.
Deb and Rick
While Debâ€™s eyebrows are a talking point in themselves, Deb and Rick are pretty adorable overall, and are a crowd favourite. They usually scrape by in the bottom half of the competition, and are most well known for their matching shirts and Debâ€™s serial flirting.
Paul and Blair
Paul and Blair are the team that everyone just wants to have a beer with. They can make breakfast pies seem gourmet, theyâ€™re down to earth and they know whatâ€™s up in the kitchen. Along with Helena and Vicki, they are predicted to make it all the way to the final.
My Kitchen Rules airs on Channel 7, every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm, and Sundays at 6:30pm.
