  1. 7 seems to have ramped up the drama on MKR this week, i don’t know if thats how it would’ve played out anyway or maybe some last minute editing in an attempt for better ratings…

  2. Love this idea! Add a simple twist of an on screen psychologist who is trying to lose weight whilst singing and the Seven bosses can take the rest of the year off for a job well done!

  3. What a great idea merging cooking, renovating and relationships, here is my idea: First date: cook a dish to share together, second date: renovate a room, third date hold a dinner party for family and exes, fourth date: revamp a garden space.

  4. Seven could merge MKR with House Rules. My House Kitchen Rules, where cooks have to prepare dishes while the kithchen is being renovated by a different team.

    Might even squeeze some dating in somewhere.
