Welcoming a new judge along with blind taste testing for the first time, the biggest shock for audiences will be seeing who’s crashing the My Kitchen Rules dinner parties.
One thing is certain: there are plenty of surprises in store when My Kitchen Rules launches on Monday, January 28 at 7.30pm.
Manu Feildel and Pete Evans return to host and judge the ultimate home-cooking battle as they accept dinner party invites in each state across the country.
This series we welcome new guest judge Colin Fassnidge to the table alongside returning guest judges Guy Grossi, Karen Martini and Liz Egan.
Director of Network Productions Brad Lyons says: “We’re thrilled with the continuing success of such a well-executed local production.
“We’re sure audiences will love the home cooks we’ve found this year just as much as they’ll love all the new surprises we’re throwing at them in the kitchen. MKR really is the best way to start off the new television year.”
It’s state versus state, plate against plate, as 12 teams of two attempt to out-dine and out-wine each other to see whose kitchen rules. There will be triumphs, kitchen fires, laughter, tears and plenty of opinionated guests as they battle the clock and their nerves to plate up on time.
The home-grown Seven production has built a huge following since it premiered in 2010. It has grown year-on-year and when South Australia’s Leigh and Jennifer won the title in 2012, an audience of 2.89 million was watching. The third series averaged 1.8 million across its 37 episodes.
The top two teams will again battle it out in the grand final where they will present their ultimate dining menu to a full restaurant. With $250,000 in prize money on offer, the knives will definitely be out.
