Pete Evans and Manu Fieldel may have witnessed fireworks on My Kitchen Rules, but this year they will boot one team off the show.
“It’s never happened before,” says Seven’s Director of Network Programming Angus Ross.
“Both of them will weigh in if they see something they don’t like it.
“It’s obvious from past years everybody loves instant restaurants, and we’ve also upped the stakes with them this year. You will see that the competitors will also be doing a little bit of cooking in Pete & Manu’s house as well.”
Ross is keeping silent on other changes to this year’s format, but says that while casting is crucial, food remains integral to the hit series.
“The great thing about all of these reality shows whether it is MKR or The Block, is you have total reset every year -a chance to refresh. The best way that you can do that is actually through the contestants. You get a great new set of personalities every year,” he continues.
“On a show like this if you don’t have good food it’s not going to work. I know there is a lot of good food this series. I know it sounds like it every year, but it has been described as the best food any of the series has ever had. So foodies will certainly get their fix in terms of amazing food and scores this year.
Begins 7:30pm tonight on Seven.
