Manu Feildel Outs My Kitchen Rules Contestant

With the pre-publicity machine cranking for the popular My Kitchen Rules due to start Monday week, judge Manu Feildel outed one of the contestants on radio this morning according to

But really it wasn’t a very big deal as the article says:

The My Kitchen Rules judge was trying to explain the relationship between Victorian Kane Lillywhite and his housemate Lee Chan to Nova’s Hughesy and Kate yesterday.

“Kane is homosexual so they are not together,” Feildel said.

“He is out of the kitchen, or the closet,” he added.

But Lillywhite, a tennis umpire from Richmond, said he was not fussed.

“My family and friends know,” he said. “But I guess if anyone didn’t know, like all of the Australian public, then they do know (now).”

I mean who cares, reality TV has always been at the forefront of showing diversity on TV be it race, sexuality or a range of IQ’s.
This season on the show looks to  be a good one as long as Manu does not get into a polyester red tracksuit, his hottness rating drops dramatically when that occurs.
