My Kitchen Rules – The Spice Girls Are Definitely Getting Media Coverage
You just know that tomorrow night’s episode of My Kitchen Rules is going get fantastic ratings as everyone wants to know how Jessie and Biswa aka the Spice Girls from NSW are going to cook. Will this series villains get their come uppence or will they get their perfect tens?
These girls have been getting a roasting on the social media and as commenter BDD predicted they have now received death threats, but they seem to be taking all the drama they are creating in their stride.
The Sunday Telegraph reports that they are not fazed by all the drama:
“We have had death threats. Someone said, ‘If we see them we are going to stab them’,” [Biswa] Kamila, 23, says.
“It feels like the whole of Australia hates us. We are just saying everything truthfully. We’re not trying to lie or backstab or anything.
“If we say, ‘We don’t like this’, we don’t personally mean I don’t like you, we mean we just don’t like your food. How hard is it to distinguish between those two? It’s a competition, it’s never a personal attack.”
The two have also been criticised for going on the show only for the fame.
Kamila denied this.
“For us, it was all about cooking the best food.
“We didn’t even care about the money … when Manu and Pete said, ‘There’s $250,000 involved’, we were like, ‘Really? We had better get to it.’ We just wanted to cook.”
The pair have endured vicious online comments.
Khan, 25, has come under fire for disliking foods such as capsicum, eggplant, tomato and chocolate.
“We are melodramatic and we are loud-mouthed, that’s all true. But I want people to know we do love food,” Khan says. “We are so passionate about it. That is the only thing we took to heart.”
They also hit back at claims they were bad mannered.
“We are not eating with our feet,” Kamila says. “What does that mean (that) we have no table manners? It means etiquette on the table; we didn’t burp or fart at the table. Come to our house, eat our food. I’ll prove to you we are nice people and we love food.”
Their boyfriends defended the pair, saying their cooking is fantastic. “I know them so I don’t really pay attention to the criticism,” Khan’s boyfriend, Simon Ameen, said. “At the end of the day it’s a character on TV, it’s not the real them.”
Kamila’s boyfriend, Fadi El-Sharoni, also said the pair were awesome cooks.
“Their food is fantastic. (Biswa) always says things without thinking. That’s what I love about her.”
However they also told the Herald Sun earlier this week that they had difficulty making friends:
“We don’t have many friends that are girls. We’ve always had problems with that, especially from within our community,” says Khan
“This is the in crowd,” Biswa said laughing and motioning to herself and Jessie. “Everybody wants to hang out with us.”
It is refreshing that Jessie and Biswa are taking their reality TV edit with good humour. They can always comfort themselves that they will be one team that the 1.6 million viewers will remember.
My Kitchen Rules on SEVEN at 7.30pm Monday through to Thursday.
