The show reached a new season high of 2.35m as viewers tuned in to see if they could put their money where there mouth is. That was higher than the 2.23m for Jessie and Biswa’s cook-off.
In the end they finished second on their leader board while newly-engaged South Australians Lisa and Stefano were sent packing.
That ensured yet another win for Seven, at the expense of the competition.
Seven network shares were 37.6%, Nine 26.2%, ABC 16.5%, TEN 15.2% and SBS 4.5%.
Next for Seven was Seven News (1.24m), Today Tonight (1.05m), Home and Away (1.00m), Last Resort lost more than a million of its lead-in (949,000 / 659,000) and Deal or No Deal (474,000).
Nine News (1.18m) was best for Nine then The Block (1.03m), A Current Affair (966,000), Hot Seat (610,000) and Movie: Life as we Know It (501,000).

Mr & Mrs. Murder dropped lightly from last week at 715,000 . It was still second in its slot and well up on its lead in -that’s as much as anybody can ask against the 70 minute MKR episode. Next for TEN were TEN News (701,000), The Project (469,000), Modern Family (2: 367,000 / 1: 357,000), The Simpsons (365,000) and The Good Wife (336,000).
