Returning: My Kitchen Rules. Airdate: Please Marry My Boy

As expected, My Kitchen Rules returns to Seven next week from 7:30pm Monday.

Bolstered by its ratings success last year, this year the show will air four nights a week, from Monday – Thursday* as well as boosting the prize money from $100,000 to $250,000.

As previously reported, a NZ team also joins as part of the first of two cooking groups, with one Tassie team to join in Group Two.

New dating series Please Marry My Boy will premiere at 8:45pm Monday, hosted by Home and Away‘s Ada Nicodemou.

The series four mums joining their single sons for a series of speed dates with 10 female candidates.

The chosen girls will then move in with the son and his mother.

*NB: Previous programming advice that Better Homes and Gardens would return 7:30pm February 2nd will be amended by Seven with the show resuming on Friday February 3rd. Red herring anyone?



  1. Its good to see the the “White Australia Policy” is alive and well through the contestants on “Please Marry My Boy”. Well done Channel 7.

  2. I don’t think one NZ team is enough to make even NZ pay for this junk. For a start, the guy seems more of a Pom than a Kiwi, and then they would have to last through the series. Aren’t they a bit lacking in charisma, and/or cooking skills, for that?

    And as for ‘Please Marry My Boy’! If the reality is anything like as nauseating as the previews, I’ll be giving 7 a break for the next few months!

  3. Please Marry My Boy is Thursday night “light entertainment” at best, something trashy before the end of the week, surely not worthy of a prime Monday night slot, but are they just launching it off the return of MKR and then shift it to another night once viewers (Seven wishes) are hooked?

  4. please give the dating show a chance.I will(I normally watch the 7 mate Family Guy/American Dad Combination given the lack of anything decent elsewhere currently).

  5. @Mummy’s Boy. I don’t hate reality. I love MKR, Survivor and The Amazing Race. But I hate trashy shows which seem to be creeping more and more onto Aussie tv. It’s sad. And you’re right it will probably rate really well which is the other sad thing. Hope it bombs. Seven have the best list of shows, and they’re wasting a timeslot with this crap. Seven knew it was trash and probably saw the feedback of the initial promos, hence why they now have different promos making it out to be a heartwarming dating show.

  6. My Kitchen Rules was on Mon-Thurs nights last year as well. The report makes it sound liek it is something new to the show including it in the sentence with the new prize money value.

  7. I’.m glad they didn’t put Once Upon a Time or Downton Abbey on Monday at least so far. Hopefully reality TV will pay off for them although I’m watching Eleven at the moment. So it doesn’t cause any clashes which makes me happy. As I want to be able to watch the two shows mentioned above. I hope they schedule them well.

    There is a place for reality and scripted drama.

    You are writing off Please Marry My Boy without even seeing it.

    And probably more people will watch it than Homocide and Rush. Those shows, as good as they were (Rush at least) were just more in a long line of cop shows. All Networks seem to want to make are cop shows, or boring middle of the road Winners and Losers style drama.

    At least reality TV offers different genres.

    You obviously hate reality TV so naturally have a bias against it.

    At least watch something before you form an opinion.
