My Kitchen Rules – Manu Gets Flirty With A Contestant

My Kitchen Rules Season 2 kicks off tonight with new contestants, but with the same judges the delectable Manu Feildel, and the enigmatic Pete Evans.

Channel 7 kindly sent me a preview disc and I watched episode two. Not going to give anything away but this is what you can expect from the show.

  1. The format is the same, a cross between Come Dine With Me, and Masterchef Australia, except this time the second lot of teams is not a surprise.
  2. The first episodes are where they go to the teams “restaurant” and the other teams and judges score them.
  3. Then the top teams from the two groups go head to head in a Masterchef kitchen scenario.

 The highlights of the episode were: 

  1. It was about the food and the cooking;
  2. Manu and Stefania from Western Australia getting a bit flirty – you go girl.
  3. This year’s teams appear to be more animated then last years lot.

 What I would like to see:

  1. More dinner table conversation between the teams rather then just their opinion on the dishes served.
  2. More alcohol to elicit the above.
  3. A mixing up of the editing, a bit it felt a bit formulaic.
  4. When they hit the second half of the competition, make them cook outside their comfort zone, last year they chose the menus.

 My Kitchen Rules will be a nice entrée before the main course of Masterchef Australia arrives. It ticks a lot of the boxes that makes a good reality TV show, good topic, cast and contestants.

 My Kitchen Rules starts tonight on Channel Seven at 7.30pm, it will be screening Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Having watched Manu pick his nose and double dip on Ready,Steady ,Cook, I find it hard to see him as “delectable”….
