My Kitchen Rules – The Captain Sinks Alongside His Girlfriend
Corinne’s ex-husband dodged a bullet by her running off with David as he revealed in his interview with Woman’s Day that Corinne had wanted to go on the show with him. Though I doubt the ex would have been casting gold like the older David is. However the cuckold husband did reveal David can’t cook and he and Corinne once threw out a Spag Bol that he had brought over.
David looks like he was enjoying the television spotlight and if the constantly kissing couple are kicked off the show tonight lets hope they don’t try and extend their fifteen minutes of fame by leaking a sex tape. Even I would not press play on that one. The episode had enough Benny Hill type innuendoes anyway with Corinne saying to David “You’re doing a great job baby pounding that pork”.
Now that David is on the way out the My Kitchen Rules producers need someone else for the viewers to dislike and it looks like it is going to be Cathy. Cathy is being portrayed as the Lady of The Manor saying they [David and Corinne] are not the sort of people she would invite back to her house. Did they remind her too much of Upper Middle Bogan? She also said she would never go to an RSL. So her daughter Anna did not do her debutante ball in the country?
You wonder what she would think of Harry being a potential son-in-law? Probably she would cope as his family own land as well and he probably went to the right private school in Melbourne. However may not have the WASP look that Cathy would approve of.
Chloe is not a fan of Anna and Cathy’s either and wants them to go, but maybe she is just envious that the pair can pull more painful faces then she can.
Harry admits that he has been set up as the lothario of the series. In the latest TV WEEK he said every dinner he was the one sat beside the single girls and he just went with it. Apparently he is not as flirty in real life.
Anna was not interested and seem to think Harry was attempting to punch above his weight. She also revealed she was practically married.
After all that little side plot at the table it was the kitchen which was producing the main drama because Corinne and David revealed they actually cannot cook.
Their entree was Corn Soup with Avocado and Prawns. What is Corinne’s obsession with avocado? The avocado was plopped into the middle of the plate with the thick corn soup plated around it. David had cooked the prawns saying they were all perfect. They weren’t as Pete said to him he had put too many in the pan and they had braised. Manu said the soup had the same consistency as baby food.
Pete also scolded about the fact the corn was a puree not a soup. After the harsh criticism David came back into the kitchen and said “The intensity has just gone up a level”. Which resulted in him not upping the his game but just having another glass of red. Or maybe he meant it for Corinne to up her game as she appears to be the do everything woman including ironing his pants. No wonder she is fourth partner.
The main was Pork Medallions with Cauliflower Puree and Green Beans which Josh and Danielle thought it was boring and thought it was something to get in a RSL. Seriously that was an insult to RSL’s it was more like hospital food.
David seems to obsess over the stupid things like making the beans the same size and counting them so they all have the same amount. Instead he should have been trying to make a palatable mushroom sauce. It looked disgusting. Some mushrooms mixed with butter, cream, cheese and cornflour. It looked like something you would eat in the middle of winter not a dish that would suit tropical Cairns.
Kooky Carly who acts 21 years of age but is actually 32 revealed she does not like pork since she saw the movie Babe.Her reasoning is she does not like to eat an animal that talks. However she does eat bacon. Yes folks this person is teaching our children.
Manu did not hold back he said it looked horrible and the pork was not a medallion. Pete politely said “If you don’t know how to make a puree, if you don’t know how to do the most amazing mushroom sauce, then I don’t think this stage of the competition is where you should be putting together a dish like this”.
Chloe thought it was the worst dish in the competition.
The chocolate cake which was more in texture to a creme caramel looked like it was going to give the pair some redemption. It did not. Corinne had over cooked it and it was basically inedible. Also the cream looked over whipped but in hindsight that was the least of the dishes problems.
The upside of their night for both the diners and the cooks were they were on time and organised but that was not going to give them extra points.
The scores were:
Carly and Tresne – 7 (Carly needs to stop reading those positive thinking books)
Chloe and Kelly – 3
Josh and Danielle – 2
Cathy and Anna – 2
Harry and Christo – 1 (they must have really hated David’s yarns)
Pete gave a two for entree, a two for main, a two for dessert and Manu gave a one for entree, a three for main, a two for dessert.
For a grand total of 27 and at this stage is the lowest score in MKR history. Well it will at least give David something to boast about at his next dinner party.
Ironically it would have been smarter for the other contestants to collude to keep Josh and Danielle at the bottom of the table as they can actually cook whereas Corinne and David have no chance of taking the $250,000 prize.
Tonight Cathy and Anna cook it will be interesting to see if they can handle the pressure of the kitchen but don’t expect them to bring in the ratings like Corinne and David did. They should pay them a bonus with over 2 million viewers nationally and being the highest rating show of the night.
My Kitchen Rules on Monday to Wednesday at 7.30pm.
