My Kitchen Rules – The Ring WAS On Before The Proposal!

It was an editing error that eagle eyed commenters spotted, Lisa was wearing the ring a scene that came before the actual proposal.

Mashing the potato at the 20 minute mark:

At the 23 minute mark:

Producers need to realize they can’t hide anything.

2 Tickled Pink { 02.27.13 at 3:59 pm }

Haha I knew I wasn’t going crazy & I did actually see it!

3 Erin { 02.27.13 at 4:00 pm }

i knew mum and i weren’t seeing things!!

we are also convinced that the door bell the contestants pushed on arrival was different to the one that pete and manu pressed…

4 Anna { 02.27.13 at 4:17 pm }

The ring was ON when they were in Tassie

I think HPM doorbells must be a sponsor again this year. Just wish they attached them to the wall more securely, have seen a couple get wobbles up when pressed by sausage fingers. Last time at rented house used by Lisa and Stefano could see high tech entry system next to front door.

The Rock Pool looks great and we’ll definitely try some of these recipes.

The entire production team behind this absolute farce of a “cooking” show deserves to be shot in the nuts.

What have we had so far? We’ve had racism, we’ve had rumours of contestants not even cooking in their own kitchens (which defeats the whole purpose of this show), and now we’re being lied to our faces with this so-called “shock” proposal thanks to some absolutely atrocious editing.

Time to pull MKR off the air and burn the tapes. Even The Renovators puts this crackpot of a show to shame.

8 Calm The Farm { 02.27.13 at 9:44 pm }

Golo, stop the whinging.
Pull MKR off the air? What have you been smoking?
MKR attracts 2 million viewers on a regular basis, an amazing success despite the flaws.

And who cares about a few oversights in the editing? We all know reality tv is far from reality but we still love it!

If stefano is 32 how od is Lisa?

10 nanaliz { 02.27.13 at 10:02 pm }

Not rumour Golo about not cooking in own kitchen, some houses don’t have enough room for camera crew, generators etc. It has been an accepted practice since start of show (other seasons as well) that some can’t use their kitchen. They are asked to offer friends, relos kitchen or rented one. Perfectly logical and no secret. The Greeks last season used a relos house and Mother and future daughter-in-law used rental. They go in knowing this and producers don’t hide it.

11 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 10:18 pm }

Lisa is 41.

12 Moonstruck { 02.27.13 at 10:58 pm }

Hi guys. VCR did not record tonight’s episode. How sit the scoring go?

13 A.P { 02.27.13 at 11:01 pm }

The other contestants scored 3s to 6s, except Lisa and Stephano who scored 1!
Judges scores announced tomorrow night.

14 Moonstruck { 02.27.13 at 11:03 pm }

Thank you AP. hopefully VCR works tomorrow.

15 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 11:03 pm }

A.P-Not sure you are kidding or you didn’t watch to the end. Braces score is 64 and Lisa got eliminated.

16 Moonstruck { 02.27.13 at 11:06 pm }

Thanks Little Petal.

Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler

The contestants gave Braces and Tatts 17. The judges scores have been announced and these were much more generous but I can’t remember. B&T are now in second place and Lisa and Stefano are dead meat(with polenta).

Oh, you’ve already figured it out ,babes.

18 Moonstruck { 02.27.13 at 11:13 pm }

So B&T can cook? If contestants have 17 then Judges must have given 44 out of possible 60.

19 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 11:14 pm }

Sure, babe.

20 A.P { 02.27.13 at 11:18 pm }

Littlepetal@15, sorry, now I am confused, I thought the judges said they weren’t announcing their scores until tomorrow night?
Maybe I’m mixed up concentrating on counting all the “babes” which was about 54 times.
I think I changed the channel.
Did they go to an ad break and then announce it in kitchen headquarters?
Anyway, I knew they would score better than Visa and Stuffano.

21 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 11:18 pm }

Dodgy scores from the judges. Pete gave a 10 for the mains which looked more like an entree.

22 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 11:21 pm }

Yes, AP. The babes must be doing your head in :-)

23 A.P { 02.27.13 at 11:27 pm }

I’m in the Twilight Zone again!

24 Daisy { 02.27.13 at 11:31 pm }

I want to tear my ears off! Babes!!!!!!

The ‘art’ of whining and turning every statement into a question first surfaced way back (as far as I know ) in the 90s with the Alicia Silverstone movie “Clueless”. It’s performed by lame-brained so called ‘cool girls’.
Stop speaking in questions, Babes!!!!!!!!
Joanna is more tolerable than these two little vipers.
Whiney chicks!!!!

25 brain dead dave { 02.27.13 at 11:31 pm }

The judges did actually say they were announcing the scores tomorrow night but then announced them tonight. I thought we’d be waiting til tomorrow to find out but it was just all done in a different place the following day where Lisa and Stuffano were culled. Hasta la vista.

Basically, the babes need to improve their blow torch technique on brulees and their sweet and sour sauce and they’re going to be a threat. Jesus thinks T&B are “Vietmanese”

26 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 11:37 pm }

So a good sauce will make babes great cook?

27 A.P { 02.27.13 at 11:39 pm }

Oh, thanks BDD, I thought I was going mad. I could have sworn they said that so that’s why I turned over the channel, serves me right for not checking, thanks Babe!

28 Daisy { 02.27.13 at 11:41 pm }

Bummer. It looks like we might have to endure the whiney Bratz dolls for awhile. Insufferable!
I’d take Lisa and Candy, J&B, and Joanna &co over those noxious Bratz.

29 brain dead dave { 02.27.13 at 11:42 pm }

Maybe not but I can see “Braces & Tatt’s Sweet & Sour Babes’ Sauce” in Coles next week.

30 Daisy { 02.27.13 at 11:45 pm }

Sour more than sweet.

31 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 11:47 pm }

I agree with you, Daisy. J and B are more fun to watch than those 2 babes

32 Daisy { 02.27.13 at 11:50 pm }

BTW They could have done with a bit of foliage in their back yard.

33 Littlepetal { 02.27.13 at 11:54 pm }

But it is a factory, babe. They have the cheek to critise the other teams decor.

34 brain dead dave { 02.27.13 at 11:58 pm }

Stuffano called it a “junk yard”.

35 LB { 02.28.13 at 12:02 am }

If Bangs & Braces thought that their setting was “bohemian, edgy or cool” as they stated then they are even more delusional than I originally thought. To call it The Factory as some kind of homage to Andy Warhol made me wish he would come back & haunt them for that sacrilege. Noticed there was only one shot of the exterior of the house.

Some things that really struck me tonight:
– Those two seem to have modeled their speech patterns on Valley Girls. Not exactly edgy.
– Neither of them drive? What is with that?
– Bangs is married? Who knew?
– They didn’t seem to set foot in a Coles for any produce. Unfair?
– Was waiting for fireworks when one of the Italian Mama’s broke the glass. Sadly none forthcoming.

There’s more, but that’s all that comes to mind.

Not sorry to see Lisa & Stefano go, as they were quite toxic. However they did seem to be popular with other contestants, so maybe there is something we didn’t get to see.

A.P. Like you, I nearly turned it over because I thought they were announcing the elimination on the next ep – sounded like it from what Pete said

36 Daisy { 02.28.13 at 12:02 am }

There was more vegetation on the pancake than in their garden.

37 Littlepetal { 02.28.13 at 12:09 am }

Tatts is married to an American. They said they applied to be on MKR was after screaming at DrEvil and KRudd in last series. Well, most people will think they are great cooks when compared to Dr Evil.

Just read an interview with Stuffano and he said he has never seen such rudeness from those girls. Well, they made their mamma proud.
