I don't know when the spice girls are coming back, but I can't bring myself to watch them.  Maybe other people find such rudeness and lack of manners entertaining but I don't.  They're being rewarded for their nastiness and I don't want to see it.

Just remembered that yesterday I got asked a marketing question 'Will you keep watching My Kitchen Rules now that the spice girls have been eliminated?'

I agree, and i can't see how they can make it seem fair that they get a second chance at it all.  I am curious to see how the other teams react when they realise they have been given a second chance.

I dont' get how MKR works??

This is my first MKR experience original.gif.

What happened to the old group?

Are there other groups?

Do the winners of each end up competing - how does the 'game' work?

Welcome to MKR. It's quite addictive original.gif

There are two teams from each state. They have one set of teams compete before bringing in the second lot of teams (this is where we are up to now). I guess it would be way to many people to do it all at the same time.

Eventually all the teams are brought together to compete against each other.

ohmy.gif Cannot believe I have to put up with the spite girls again. So disappointed that the produces are chasing ratings in this way.

The new group has no idea what they're in for. It will be interesting seeing how spite girls and miss cupcake interact.

I'm not looking forward to them returning at all and I can't see how it is at all fair on the other contestants.

Based on the preview of tomorrow night (which, it appears, is when the apparent "cheating" will happen), I'm guessing that they get disqualified, so they bring Jessie and Biswah back in for a second chance, to make up the numbers...

BOOOOO!!!!

I'm looking forward to a Spicey Cupcake explosion!!!
Their mutual sour expressions and comments should combine well as flavours explode and they tear each other apart!

Love the PT's comments that Jenna should have enjoyed her pork because it was pink and she LURVES pink!

If they hadn't sung and danced maybe they would have had more time to get things done. lol

Well then hopefully they cook again, fail again and get sent home AGAIN.

My recording cut out right before dessert!!!

Did the pumpkin pie work? At all?

How did the scoring go??

#18 Chocolate Addict

Posted 11 February 2013 - 10:44 PM

They didn't blind bake the pastry long enough so it was raw. they put banana essence in the cream so it tasted like "chemicals' said Pete. Apparently the pie filling was ok but the rest was not.

They got 57?? I think it was. Less than the Melbourne team and they were not happy with their low score.

I believe what they said was "It was worth AT LEAST a 64!!"

cupcake girl and her friend had some not very nice things to say "behind the scenes", a bit catty, but at least they are polite at the table, unlike the spice girls :|

I feel sorry for these guys if they are going to be subjected to them, and their spiteful "banter".

thank you.

I was BUSTING to know what happend - the daughter's eyes were freaking me out - would've liked to see them react to being bottomm, so far.

Do we all think the next (TAS, I think?) pair are the "cheaters"? Any guesses on the definition of "cheating", in this instance?

#21 -Moxie-

Posted 12 February 2013 - 12:09 AM

Reading through the FB posts it seems the Tas team use a jar of curry paste rather than blend their own.

DH has told me the WA ladies get eliminated. Apparently someone he works with knows them and they told. I would have thought they couldnt say anything, so not sure how true the information is.

This sounds about right. They blow it up to make it sound like they go and buy a whole cheesecake and serve it for dessert, or have a Nonna hiding in the butlers pantry making their pasta.

another team I won't be sad to see go ... what the hell was with the screeching and dancing - if they had of concentrated more on their food and less on the "entertainment" maybe they woudl have got a better score original.gif
Must say Cupcake and her partner are getting on my nerves a bit too


#24 emlis22

Posted 12 February 2013 - 08:33 AM

I missed last night, thanks for the update. So the cheating is tonight? I assumed they didn't make their own pastry or something, so the curry paste sounds about right.

#25 namie

Posted 12 February 2013 - 08:55 AM

I assumed it would be something like using pre-made stock from the supermarket, so curry paste from a jar fits for me.
