My Kitchen Rules Series 3 – The Contestants
Do Pete Evans and Manu Feildel have a clause in their contract that states no guys hotter then themselves can be contestants on the show? As I look over the contestants I am not seeing much eye candy for the over thirty woman.
Masterchef Australia learnt the hard way last year – don’t cast at least one straight hot male (ie. someone with a fuckability factor – yes that is a technical term) in the over thirty age demographic the female viewers in that age bracket are not happy. A person can only ogle Gary, George and Matt for so long. OK that is one of my many theories why Masterchef dropped in ratings and I am sticking by it.
Anyway unless you like the preppy look or men in army uniforms there is really not much in the My Kitchen Rules cast, and of course there are plenty of hot girls. There is even a MILF!
Anyway here is the list of contestants:
New South Wales – Steve & Helen (Siblings)
Western Australia – Angela & Justine (Teacher and Truckie)
South Australia – Leigh & Jennifer (Florist and Princess)
New Zealand – Simon & Meg (Kiwis)
Queensland – David & Scott (Soldier mates)
Victoria – Thomas & Carla (Just friends)
New South Wales – Sam & Jillian (Potential in-laws)
Western Australia – Emma & Andrew (Engaged scientists)
South Australia – Nic & Rocco (Childhood mates)
Tasmania – Megan & Andy (Sales Reps)
Queensland – Peter & Gary (Lawyer and Doctor)
Victoria – Carly & Emily (Competitive Sisters)
However the series does look like it will be an entertaining one. Manu Feildel and Pete Evans are back as host/judges. Also the same team is back to judge when they are all back in the kitchen – Guy Grossi, Tobie Puttock, Liz Egan and Karen Martini.
As I have written previously, I would like to see a critic around that table rather then all chefs. In fact I would flick Tobie as I find him lacking in charisma, but I am sure he has some fans.
Also the prize money has been increased to $250,000, I missed this but picked it up on TV Tonight blog, as he clearly sticks to the more important issues.
