Will & Steve have won My Kitchen Rules for 2015.
They scored 52 points in the Grand Final, to win $250,000 cash.
They defeated Mt. Isa cousins Jac & Shaz who scored 50 points.
Teams served up 5 course meals for judges, families and former contestants tonight.
The judges were divided over the winning team. While Colin Fassnidge and Guy Grossi awarded the same score to both teams, Pete Evans thought Mt Isa cousins Jac and Shaz pipped the boys at the post, while Manu Feildel, Karen Martini and Liz Egan’s scores handed the title to the NSW boys.
“This is the start of something big for us,” said Steve. “We knew this journey was going to change our lives; we’re going to go out there and get it, we’re going to chase our food journey.”
Will added, “For me it’s been a massive journey and I’m really starting to believe in myself more than I’ve ever before. MKR has totally changed the direction of both of our lives.”
“We certainly put our hearts into it and went as hard as we could go,” said Shaz. “Not everything went according to plan but we’re as proud as punch. We will take away the belief that you are capable of anything.
“I can’t believe we’ve reached the end. I’ve been bossing her around for months and she’s handled it like a dream; I just love her to death. We love being together and we love cooking; we’ve had an absolute ball.”
Seven’s extensive 6th season has been the top-rating series on air this year, with ratings over 1.7m viewers and making life very tough for their competition.
Seven has snagged a string of weekly ratings wins under its belt as a result of the hit series.
But the Final has already attracted controversy with Jac & Shaz reportedly upset with the alternative endings filmed, believing they had won the big prize.
Seven is already casting for its 2016 season.
