My Kitchen Rules – Maybe Lisa Is Not As Posh As Thought
It is no secret that some teams in My Kitchen Rules are not cooking in their own home. One of the most memorable examples of this was in season three where Steve and Helen could not work out how to turn on the stove and it was revealed they had been cooking in their brothers house where the kitchen had only been just been finished being renovated the night before.
It has now been revealed the super sleek kitchen Lisa and Stefano were cooking in was not their own, but not a friend or family’s but one the production company hired for them.
Sometimes the kitchens of the contestants are inappropriate or impractical for size of camera crew.
In the Herald Sun the producers were being coy about which teams are cooking in their own houses.
In the article an academic from Western Australia thought it was dishonest.
Dr Rob Cover, associate professor at the University of WA’s School of Social and Cultural Studies, said TV shows had a duty to be honest with their audience.
“It is disrespectful to reality TV audiences not to be upfront about sets and scripted dialogue,” he said. “Audiences are made up of intelligent people who are aware that reality TV is no more real than an episodic drama.”
