My Kitchen Rules – Carla and Tom Complain About The Editing Of The Show
Carla and Tom told the Herald Sun today that the editing of My Kitchen Rules is what has turned them into one of the shows villains and that they are actually saying nice things about the food.
The article states:
VICTORIAN My Kitchen Rules contenders Thomas Carr and Carla Mangion blame ruthless program editors for turning them into TV villains.
The pair, who failed to win over judges with their dinner and scored the lowest dessert score in MKR history for their blueberry and lavender cheesecake, said they felt they weren’t being shown fairly on the Channel 7 reality show.
“It’s really disappointing that Carla and I are being portrayed quite badly,” Carr said.
“Monday night was a fine example. We said beautiful things about (the soldiers’) desserts and their entrees, but the only time I was shown talking was my negative remark about the main course.
“I hope people acknowledge it is a TV show and the characters they’re building aren’t really us.”
Mangion said they were trying to stay positive. “Just being here is an achievement. No one’s dead. No one has cancer. It’s a television show. Our family and friends know who we are and hopefully that will shine through a bit more,” she said.
Maybe they need to pop into Chris Badenoch’s beer joint Josie Bones and commiserate over a few beers as he was edited as the bad boy in Masterchef Australia in Season One.
However it is not a negative to be cast as the villain as the Tassie Tiger Mel testify, as she now has a column in New Idea commenting on this series. In fact she is about the only one people can remember from last year. Who is on the front cover of magazines? Princess Jen.
Also the Executive producer of the show Rikkie Proost talked to Media Week Australia and he said “80% of the success of television is in the casting”. He had said they had chosen this year, and that “This is the best series yet.”. Well they always say it is the best series.
Casting is key but how they slice and dice is also crucial as we can see above Tom and Carla are feeling the effects of this.
Also we have not even got to the pair that may make Tom and Jen look like pussycats as tonight we get to see Peter and Gary on our screens.
My Kitchen Rules on Channel Seven Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm.
