My Kitchen Rules – A Big Fan Account Turns On The Show

The My Kitchen Rules fan Twitter account @MKR_Au has turned on the show and probably shocked their 17,000 followers when he said he was watching The Block instead.

This is hilarious.

The story in news.com.au says:

THE viewer behind My Kitchen Rules biggest Twitter fan account has declared he now “can’t stand” the reality show and will be watching rival program, The Block from now on.

After updating his 17,000 dedicated followers with every kitchen thrill and spill since the program began on January 28, Grant Alexander says he has now lost all interest in the program and has slammed it as badly scripted, fake and no longer about the cooking.

Alexander has tweeted more than 1,700 times from the MKR_AU account, with thousands of viewers happily joining in the conversation each night.

But now, he says he’s had enough.

“Not interested in the show any more,” he told his army of loyal followers today. “As a fan I am not happy with the direction the show has gone this year. I’ve started watching #TheBlock”

“How funny would it be if I live tweeted @TheBlock9 tonight from this account? That would send a strong message!”

It wasn’t long before Channel Nine saw the opportunity and tweeted him saying: @MKR_AU You should! It’s our MASSIVE #GrandFinaleWeek on #TheBlock and it’s going to be a BLOCKbuster! Chat with you again at 7 o’BLOCK :)

We now have 9 teams and 2 will be eliminated before the desert challenge. The desert challenge is filmed around 20 Nov.

I thought Steph was in a khaki/greenish colour shirt dress.

bwahaha News Talk 4BC 1116 ‏…
My Kitchen Rules’ biggest fan account @MKR_AU is sick of the show & switching to The Block. We speak to the man behind the account next.

What a weirdo loser the ”biggest fan” must be to have all those dopey domain names.

Sounds like 7 aren”t interested in what he”s selling and now he”s a bitter dickhead – possibly from channel 9???

I don’t blame him if he’s annoyed at the bitchiness – majority of fans are and even I turned the show off for a few episodes cause it was doing my head in. It’s obviously targeted to female viewers, I mean do they expect men to sit through this bitch fest? No, hence why he turned it off. But as I said before, I thought he was a pretenious twat so I’m not suprised he’s gone and done this.

They’re milking this dilemma that’s supposely unfolding tonight. Pete was on the radio (an advert) telling everyone to tune in tonight.

If people that work for them are tuning out and running away… things must be ugly in the MKR camp.

Tuning out publicly I see as a protest…. people get fed up with getting abuse for thins that they cannot control.

May be next year the producers will take a hint….

6 layla { 03.19.13 at 5:38 pm }

Anna, he wasn’t affiliated with MKR or channel 7 though. He was just a fan.

The ratings aren’t dropping so the producers won’t listen. What they don’t understand is they’d still get the ratings they’re getting without the Big Brother like drama so whether they ease on it next series we don’t know.

7 Anna { 03.19.13 at 5:45 pm }

I thought he was affiliated with MKR, If he did it for nada and got abuse from fans it’s not worth it

8 Daisy { 03.19.13 at 5:55 pm }

Anna & Layla. Yes, many of us are still watching, albeit not enjoying it as much as in previous years. I know I am watching because of successful past seasons and because it gives me the background for my RR chats. I don’t know if I might lose interest if not for RR.

9 Anna { 03.19.13 at 7:52 pm }

Daisy, same here….

Josh cannot make pasta… seriously egg white down the drain and pasta is dry….

Time to go JOSH!!!

Bratz are back to their usual charming selves

10 Anna { 03.19.13 at 8:21 pm }

Josh cannot make pasta but he has integrity!!!

The judges cannot fault anything that Bratz do BUT always find something wrong with what Angela and Melina do…. very strange

11 Littlepetal { 03.19.13 at 8:26 pm }

Judges also can’t find faults with Bondi boys. That pasta looked yaky and also not MKR tested which means not so good

12 Anna { 03.19.13 at 8:55 pm }

This season leaves me speechless

Smiley served up dogs breakfast and he’s safe?

13 Littlepetal { 03.19.13 at 8:58 pm }

GRR……….. I am like you, Anna. I have lots to say and what bullsh*t show.

14 Anna { 03.19.13 at 9:26 pm }

Littlepetal feel free :-)

MKR cannot censor you lol

15 Littlepetal { 03.19.13 at 9:30 pm }

Yes, I can say what I like here but I don’t want to spoil WA viewers. I will have my rant later (if I am still awake) or tomorrow. What a joke with the Chocolate Gateau.

16 Anna { 03.19.13 at 10:07 pm }

Seems as if some teams are praised without reason & others marked harshly for the slightest mistake

Reality soap opera … At least with BB vievwers have a say & some pains in the posterior can be gotten rid off

17 layla { 03.19.13 at 10:18 pm }

I agree with you ladies. We’ll wait til the next blog is up to discuss!

18 Gabby { 03.19.13 at 10:21 pm }

Well our two favourite girls were at it again with their disgusting mouths again tonight.
That stinks what happened tonight on so many levels and Anna and Littlepetal you have mentioned them above. It is so frustrating.

19 Morgan { 03.19.13 at 10:21 pm }

Even if cooking the scallopine with 30 minutes to go was a silly move by Melina, but what Sam and Chris attempted to make wasn’t even a gateaux. A gateaux is an actual cake, not a ganache with a biscuit base! Taste may be important, but so should execution.

Pete and Manu also not taking into account that Josh and Andi didn’t make their own pasta is also just bizarre. As much I like Josh and Andi and dislike Kerrie and Craig, K&C deserved to be safe. Although it didn’t really matter as they were going to be safe anyway.

20 Littlepetal { 03.19.13 at 10:48 pm }

Imagine Ashlee commenting about Angela and Melina serving bistro food and all they served were street food.

Tomorrow night will be hard to watch with nasty comments from A&S

21 Gabby { 03.19.13 at 10:55 pm }

I agree with you wholeheartedly Morgan on the Josh/Andi, Kerrie/Craig debacle. I wrote about it on the other blog. Also what you wrote in your first paragraph, with the boys versus the Mummas, spot on.
Pete and Manu need to get a grip on things and show a bit of consistency in what they are talking about.

22 Littlepetal { 03.19.13 at 11:05 pm }

I think Bondi boys should have gone to the showdown instead of Kerrie and Craig. Their pasta doesn’t look appetising at all. If MKR Kitchen doesn’t test this recipe, it can’t be great.

The Chocolate Gateau is more like Chocolate sauce on a HARD biscuit. The boys failed big time but still safe.

23 Christina { 03.19.13 at 11:11 pm }

I can’t understand how the other teams weren’t upset. Not just from it being cheating/unfair but because if Josh & Andy were in the bottom 4, then who is to say K&C would have been the ones saved. One of the other teams may have been next best. I think K&C showed lots of character and integrity for not just giving them the pasta, but how they spoke about it afterwards with dignity (for want of a better word).

Also only 2-3 comments from S&A tonight…I didn’t mind it. Nice its toned down and now would be weird if there wasn’t any! But anyone else think the first comment by them appeared fake…like they a tually re-shot it last week? It was when she said something about A&M going to sudden death “then we’d see a real cookoff without the drama”. Seemed such a weird thing to say…I kept wishing I taken note of their hair and clothes to check it was shot at the same time. Paranoid much!!

24 Nick { 03.20.13 at 1:40 pm }

Ashlee and Sophia….hope its the editing beacuse I cant believe the nastiness in their comments and looks. Certainly agree with the comments about wanting to see them produce something apart from asian food (one trick ponies). If they win, guarantee mme not buying any product they spruke or watch any show they are on.
