Victorian sisters Tasia and Gracia have won My Kitchen Rules for 2016, defeating South Australian couple Carmine and Lauren.
They win $250,000 after judges Pete Evans, Manu Feildel, Colin Fassnidge, Guy Grossi, Karen Martini and Liz Egan scored them three perfect 10s and an overall score of 57 out of 60. Carmine and Lauren scored 51.
It was a marathon cook-off across five courses, before their former contestants.
“I think it’s the greatest achievement that we have ever accomplished and we did it together which makes it more special than anything else,” said Gracia.
“We did it and we did it without killing each other.”
Both were complimented on the spice in their dishes, especially the sauce.
“This is something I imagine coming straight from a hawker stall. It’s got the breath of the wok in it,” said Karen Martini.
“We definitely want to do street Indonesian food in Australia,” Tasia said later.
Carmine and Lauren, who stuck to an Italian cuisine, were gracious in defeat.
“There’s no other team we’d want to share this experience with…we love you guys,” said Lauren.
The win by the Indonesian-Australians contrasts wildly with previous MKR seasons in which the show was criticised for casting Asian-Australians as series villains.
The grand final also caps off yet another hit season for Seven, drawing ratings as high as 1.94m for Seven and creating headaches for Nine and TEN.
The show is already inviting applications for a 2017 season.
