My Kitchen Rules – The WA Girls Don’t Like What Is Written About Them On The Web
Tonight it was the WA girls turn to turn their parent’s home into an instant restaurant. Now these girls have been the polarising team of this second batch of contestants, and have been getting flack on this blog and other forums.
This week they told TV Week that they were hurt by being branded “bimbos” on the various forums.
In they article they said:
“Apparently Hol and I have come across as bimbos and giggly little girls,” Grace says. “I guess there’s nothing you can really do about that and I suppose when we get nervous we do come across as a bit silly, but we’re just ourselves. Obviously we’re not bimbos – we’re both doing degrees.
“If people have that much time to sit on message boards and write mean things about people, that reflects more on them than us,” she continues. “You have to take it with a grain of salt – and I think I’m not going to read the forums from now on!”
“Everyone is entitled to their opinion,” Holly adds. “People have only seen a small side of us on TV and I find it interesting that the average person automatically thinks of something negative about someone and can say hurtful things. When it comes to people’s personalities and their images, it can go a little bit too far.”
I just wish that before reality TV stars start getting sensitive about what is being written about them on the forums and get peeved with the viewers for giving their opinions on what/who they are seeing onscreen, that they should perhaps consider blaming the editing. Because how the viewers opinion is formed is mainly based on the editing of the program.
I do think if you read the forums you do have to take it with a grain of salt, and I am sure they also have a lot of fans out there.
Tonight the girls were relatively free of disasters and meltdowns, apart from some tears just at the beginning of preparation time.
Here are a few thoughts on the episode:
- I thought the menu they picked was fairly sensible for a dinner party, as it was easy to prepare, meant there were no one and a half hours between courses.
- Although strawberries in an entree, yuck, a pity it was not fig season as that would have been delicious;
- Ok it has got to be mentioned – it would have been great if Holly had worn a bra or a bikini top under her dress;
- However if I was 21 with perky boobs and Manu Feidel was coming over I would probably go sans underwear as well;
- I did notice Holly batting her eyelids at Manu when he came into the kitchen to check out the duck – she deserves an extra point for opportunism;
- They should have mixed the ragu and the pasta through together and served it up – I thought they had plenty of sauce;
- Also I thought points should have been deducted for them not serving up the palm sugar caramel with the coconut pannacotta it is what they had on their menu;
- Considering my IQ cut out before the end of the show, points may have been deducted;
- Again I thought they need to show us more conversation around the dinner table, as this could liven up the show a bit more, it is enjoyable, but the editing is a bit stilted;
- I thought the thongs idea was kind of cute but did not really see the point of it;
- I thought they were lucky to get 66 points, considering the only cooking in the entree was frying the haloumi, and the balsalmic glaze came out of a bottle;
- Why oh why is it so hard for the the teams to serve up vegetables, that main really needed a salad; and
- Props to the girls on the pannacotta, the wobble on it was perfect.
The NSW are going to have to hope the South Australian team serve up a dodgy oyster, because at this stage this is the only way they are going to be able to stay in the competition.
