  1. Yeah I agree TVF and I was really enjoying it. After watching tonight; and following on Twitter, it’s clear this nasty, nasty behavior needs to go. People love this show because of Australian’s love for food, not cattiness.

  2. @tvf, starting to agree with you, its very hard to work out who the best cooks are when you have the talentless team vs the nasty team shoved in your face all the time.

  3. Finding it very hard to keep watching MKR. Every episode seems to be about the two teams that hate each other and it isn’t good viewing. There is a point where you take a situation too far and they are well past that point. Bring it back to the food and lets hear more from the other contestants.
