My Kitchen Rules – Why I Think Nic & Rocco Will Win
The final of My Kitchen Rules tonight on Channel 7 at 7.30pm, and tonight both teams will have to cook five courses of twenty plates each. Now that is pretty full on test.
After not knowing who I wanted to win I have settled on Jennifer and Leigh.
My rationale? I think they are the better cooks and have shown a wider range of skills and use of cuisines. Jennifer moved out of her Asian comfort zone more then Nic and Rocco did from their Italian roots.
Also Jen and Leigh were much better entertainment value then the boys, and this should be rewarded. As you know it is not just the cooking that draws us in but also the personalities of the contestants. Jen’s forthrightness, and Leigh’s quiet bitchiness gave me many more laughs then the boys. In fact I found them one of the blander teams, maybe their humour was so dry I missed it.
However who do I think will win? Nic and Rocco. In previous series the nice teams has taken out the title, last year Bella and Sammi, and the first season winners were Veronica and Shadi Abraham.
Nic and Rocco have put out some great dishes, but also they are very popular with the viewers, and I think Channel 7 will want to to leave their fans who have followed the show for the last two months satisfied.
Here are some links to interviews and articles that may be of interest to you:
- A great article on PopSugar with Carly and Emily which talks about THE romance and how they have no idea why Peter and Gary hate them so much.
- Jennifer and Leigh live chatted on Yahoo, I must say I did not find anything particularly riveting on it, however Leigh managed to get a nice plug for Coles in.
- Also the grand finalists are live blogging at the Daily Telegraph now, but you will be able to read the transcript. The article also talks about the opportunities they may have after the show. Jen would like to do a cookbook, Leigh is thinking of opening a cafe in her florist, and the boys are open to any media or cooking opportunities.
Below is the Sunrise interview with Carly and Emily, and Pete and Manu. Manu said he would hire Rocco but did not mention anyone else. Thanks for the link NanaLiz.
Who do you want to win tonight? Or do you just want the best cook of the night to win the $250,000 prize money.
