My Kitchen Rules – The Jury Needs To Be Impartial
It was difficult not to tear up when David and Scott were eliminated. As Leigh said “The world would be a better place if there were more people like them in it”. Hopefully she learnt something from them about being a decent person. Hopefully this will not be the last time we see or hear of the boys. Their laconic sense of humour and their camaraderie was lovely to watch on screen.
David and Scott did more for promoting the Australian Defence Forces then any advertisements over the years. They were great guys. And hopefully Yumi Stynes (who I am a fan of) and George Negus have been watching the show and just realising how ridiculous their comments were THAT day on The Circle. I am not going to get into a debate about that furore here, however I will say one thing, it was the type a conversation a person would have at 19 at University whilst smoking joint – most people grow up.
David and Scott did deserve to be in the elimination challenge after they were rushed trying to finish their seafood mornay.
However it did appear tonight the jury were voting more on who they thought should be in the elimination cook off rather then what the food was like. You can see how they scored the teams here.
Meg thought it was time for some of the teams who had not been in an elimination challenge to be in one. Thomas said” We love Helen and Steve, anything they touch turns to gold”. Him and Carla gave out a few tens in their scoring on this episode, obviously wanting their favourites to get through.
Also Angela said she would like the South Australian girls do it tough.
The first challenge was to cook with cheese. The good news was they could pick any cheese they liked.
Leigh and Jen made Four Cheese Borak with Skordalia. The judges said they went well together. Peter criticised Leigh for taking so long to make the skordalia and just standing over the food process. This from a person who topped and tailed beans one at at time!
Steve and Helen made Spinach and Cheese Gozleme apparently they were superb.
David and Scott made a seafood mornay, and they were struggling with time. They were rushed in the end and only stuck it under the grill for ten seconds. This meant breadcrumbs were not toasted and the scallops were raw.
Megan and Andy making Cheese Arancini Balls with Tomato relish. Pete said they were cooked perfectly, and Manu said great blue cheese flavour, whereas Angela and Justine thought the blue cheese over powered it. They scored them a one.
Carly and Emily made Four Cheese Ravioli, and the judges said it was the best pasta they had had in the competition so far.
Nic and Rocco made Lemon Cheesecake the judges thought the mergingue was sloppy and the curd was not as good as it should be.
Jen and Leigh were sent to elimination by they jury. Peter as the jury’s foreman said it was laziness and one of them was not pulling their weight. Yes that side eye was at you Leigh.
Pete and Manu also sent David and Scott to the elimination.
David and Scott were cooking lobster with gnocchi and seafood sauce they got great scores but could not beat Leigh and Jennifer’s Mulloway with celeriac and beurre rouge.
With all the villains on My Kitchen Rules David and Scott proved you can be entertaining without being bitchy or machivellian.
