My Kitchen Rules – Kelly Is Now Working In A Restaurant

chloe and kelly

Even if you don’t like Kelly Ramsay on My Kitchen Rules, you have to give her kudos for now getting a proper job in a restaurant. It looks like she is prepared to do the hard yards to follow her food dream with news she is now working as a trainee at Perth restaurant The Trustee.

She told SMH that she expected her partner in My Kitchen Rules crime Chloe James to be starting front of house.

The pair plan on opening a cafe together.

Is “The Trustee” code word for Mcdonalds?

2 Georgie { 03.29.14 at 9:31 am }

The Trustee is cashing in on KfC’s 15 minutes.

3 brain dead dave { 03.29.14 at 9:43 am }

It’s more like The Krustee with Kelly there. She’ll have no trouble getting her teeth into it.

I thought she’d be like doing a trainee thing in Paris or New York ,baby. Wish her well if she and her horse headed henchwoman hadn’t been such bitches on MKR.

4 daisy { 03.29.14 at 11:34 am }

I could go to this but I don’t trustee myself not to smiiiiiile.

5 Ali { 03.29.14 at 12:22 pm }

That’s weird, because OK Magazine says she got work in a winery, which makes more sense as you’d have to be drunk or stoned to hire her.

From the SMH article: “Ramsay says she is finding the experience very different to cooking on My Kitchen Rules.”

Is that because the “paying” customers actually do pay?

6 Techhater { 03.29.14 at 1:26 pm }

No Ali its because “paying” customers expect more than deep fried mac’n’cheese. 😆

7 Littlepetal { 03.29.14 at 2:30 pm }

Look at her CV on Linkedin. Never lasted more than 2 years in one job.

8 PollyB { 03.29.14 at 5:24 pm }

Not that I like Kelly, but I don’t stay in a job longer than 2 years – get in, get it done, move onto the next challenge. I’d go insane doing the same job for any longer.

9 Georgie { 03.30.14 at 8:39 am }

My daughter does that too PollyB and she is usually poached from her workplace by associated companies.

10 Rosie { 03.30.14 at 3:49 pm }

I wonder what her excuse is going to be for not actually sticking it out?

I WILL give her kudos if she does put in the hard yards and does turn into a ruly truly chef.

But my God I am going to vomit if she and Chloe win this year’s MKR. Unfortunately it is well on the cards since the judges to be unreasonably partial to them. I’ll keep praying to my deity for a Paul and Blair win.

11 daisy { 03.30.14 at 4:04 pm }

Do you reckon? I think they will go the way of Ashlee and Sophia and get the boot before the end. The Tassie girls are consistently outperforming the others and would make much better media sweethearts. Sort of like the adorable Sammy and Bella.
I have got my seasons confused were Spohia and Ashlee in D&S’s season?

And Littlepeatal, how was lunch?

12 Rosie { 03.30.14 at 5:32 pm }

I was forgetting the sweet Tassie girls for the moment, Daisy. Of course I’d be just as happy for a win for them too. In fact a final face off from P and B and Thalia and Bianca would be perfect in my book.

13 BakerBoy { 03.30.14 at 6:08 pm }

Dear me, I hope that doesnt mean that Chloe & Kelly won MKR? That would surely be like MKR committing Reality TV Suicide, wouldn’t it?

The questions that come to mind are…. why is she not working in the lucrative Oil & Gas field any more? Did she lose her job /contract, or did she come into some big money… ergo win MKR?

Going from a large salary in a cushy job in the O&GI to the grind stone of a real kicthen, which pays much less, all points to one conclusion I am afraid?
I hope that I am wrong!

14 daisy { 03.30.14 at 6:17 pm }

I think it could be Paul and Blair and Tassies. Also Cathy and Anna might be around a bit longer, although after that ‘beef rendang’ I am not if they know how to do anything other than raw fish and raw meat.

Baker boy, don’t you think if they won her aspirations would be a lot more ambitious than working in someone else’s restaurant. I mean she could be washing dishes.
Don’t the winners usually go crazy like Dan and Steph and think they are ready to open their own restaurants, or their own product range, or market themselves as a chef-team.
I can’t see those grinners beating the Tassie girls.

15 Littlepetal { 03.30.14 at 7:22 pm }

Daisy, no lunch today as we have a long drive to get to Milford Sound to get on the cruise.

16 Uel's cannons { 03.30.14 at 7:44 pm }

What is worse on this excruciating series?
1 Kelly’s gurning?
2 The viper Bree? Still operating at the level of a nasty 8 year old schoolyard bully.
3 The twins throwing so much food away?
4 Passive aggressive Josh sooking.
5 Back to Bree – that frigging voicebox.

17 Sandii { 03.30.14 at 8:29 pm }

Uels cannon, I agree with everything. You have missed number 6 Manu’s hair.

18 Techhater { 03.30.14 at 9:20 pm }

There was an ad on for NI and it says Chloe quits. Does anyone know what she quits? Desi’s hoping it’s MKR 😆

19 Sandii { 03.30.14 at 9:31 pm }

Probably no such luck TH.

20 Techhater { 03.30.14 at 9:35 pm }

Sandii We need BDD to pop down to the shops and have a look for us.

21 techhater { 03.30.14 at 10:08 pm }

I got it wrong it was Kelly.

RR Maybe you could find out more for us.I found this link which doesn’t say very much.

22 Sandii { 03.30.14 at 10:17 pm }

Yea we need BDD to go scope it out for us.

23 Techhater { 03.30.14 at 10:21 pm }

Sandii I wonder where everybody is tonight. For me this is groundbreaking news and you and i are the only ones here.

24 brain dead dave { 03.30.14 at 10:25 pm }

I don’t know if the latest No Idea will be in at the servo yet or if I can drag myself away from this Clint Eastwood movie. If it’s true about Kelly ,it’s great news.

25 Sandii { 03.30.14 at 10:26 pm }

Yea it’s a case of “hello, is there anyone out there”? Wasn’t Josh a moody pig tonight. Danielle looked embarrassed.

26 Techhater { 03.30.14 at 10:33 pm }

Hi BDD No, you enjoy your movie. You can’t beat a Clint Eastwood movie.

If it is true about Mush Mouth it will be worth the wait.

27 BakerBoy { 03.30.14 at 10:35 pm }

I hope you are right Daisy:-)!
The problem of-course is that the cheque will not be handed over until the show is finished & we all get to find out who won, so something sounds very strange?
O&G is a very lucrative industry. For her to leave that industry and work in a kitchen full time is eye brow raising. Something has happened. Much harder work for much less pay?
Rewarding if one is passionate and owns the business, otherwise, it is just treading water until the next job.

I know that it is old news now, but I agree with the sentiments of 90% of the people on here that I was very sad to see Uel & Shanelle go:-(. They were a lovely, lovely couple. It was such a pleasure to see how much love and respect they showed to each other.

Paul & Blair certainly are looking very strong. The Tassie Girls are also looking like they could be genuine contenders.
I am afraid that I find the twins a little underwhelming. The SA Mums seemed to have so much potential, but one of them is such an Alpha personality that she kills the partnership.
Anna is a prize cold fish who has very dodgy taste buds. She clearly enjoys the taste of raw meat. Let’s hope that bodes well for her future husband on their wedding night, but I’m afraid there is no room on my table for meat that is anything less than medium to well-done.
If a chef cannot cook a piece of meat that is well done, but still tender and melt in the mouth and full of flavour, then they have no business calling themselves a chef.

The WAB’s are simply nasty. I dont like them at all!

Carly & tresene are kooky, but lovely. They are both very gentle, sweet souls who have big hearts. As much as I like them, I think they will not survive this round of eliminations.

Oh,…. and then there is Joshua & his Danielle. She is so patient with him, almost to the point of being dominated. It is a bit sad. I often look at the dynamics of their relationship, and then at the dynamics of the relationship bewteen Uel & Shanelle, and there is no comparison. I want my relationship to be like U & S. Respect, Courtesy, Patience, Love are all excellent words that describe the relationship bewteen Uel & Shanelle perfectly.
The same cannot be said for Joshua & Danielle.
As far as their cooking ability goes, I am surprised that they have got this far,… but then we all know that the best candidate never wins on these reality shows.

28 Techhater { 03.30.14 at 10:36 pm }

Sandii There’s definitely problems in that marriage.

Hi BakerBoy SNAP You nailed it with J&D.

29 Sandii { 03.30.14 at 10:47 pm }

Are they married? I thought they were defactos. He seems very aggressive. I would like Porkchops thought on him. Danielle looked a bit wary when he was having his sooky la la.

30 Techhater { 03.30.14 at 10:51 pm }

Sandii I just assumed they were married. Yes she certainly was worried about his mood. I think he may have a very bad temper. 👿

31 daisy { 03.30.14 at 11:52 pm }

I’m done with the twins because they keep saying:
Shtrap, pashtry, moishtya, shtraight and even …..
“something wrong wiv it”. My ears have had enough of that and my eyes are done with their wide eyed head-bobbing.

Josh’s tantrum speaks for itself. Shame on you, Josh.
You’re a brat.

Kelly and Chloe know nothing about smiling. It should be a happy joyful thing, but they only use it to delight in someone else’s downfall. In fact there was more joy in Danielle’s tears tonight than we have ever see in the mirthless smiles of K&C.

And wouldn’t we all have been annoyed if Cathy and Anna lost after the twins kept opening the oven? Twice and they would have had to take it out and put it in their own oven if I had been C&A.

Now for the good news, apparently the next episode will be “the most nail-biting episode yet”. Wow!
Can you hear the scepticism in my voice?

32 Techhater { 03.31.14 at 12:02 am }

Hi Daisy I was getting lonely here all by myself. I knew you’d turn up. How was your dinner.

33 daisy { 03.31.14 at 12:26 am }

To be honest, not as good as usual. I was hoping for some non standard dishes. There was lasagne, a chicken pasta, a chicken and chorizo risoni, and the dishes of the day; (from Lotus) creamy, garlic mussels with spaghetti (yum, a light sauce, not thick) and oysters kilpatrick. No desserts because it was little Ninja’s birthday, so birthday cake instead.

34 Techhater { 03.31.14 at 12:30 am }

You won me with the mussels and oysters.

35 daisy { 03.31.14 at 12:33 am }

Yep, they were the clear winners this week.
Woolif has gone into Sudden Death. A first for him.

36 Techhater { 03.31.14 at 12:34 am }

There’s always a first time for everything. 😆

37 Rosie { 03.31.14 at 1:38 am }

Woolif will be in “SD”against me then, Daisy. We just had a plain ol’ blah beef (or could have been lamb – it had been in the freezer a fair while, but I’m pretty sure it was beef) casserole/stew for tea tonight. With lots of vegies. Can’t even call it dinner, it was so ordinary it was just “tea”, so I think I belong in Sudden Death.

38 daisy { 03.31.14 at 1:55 am }

I don’t know Rosie. It might come under the heading of simple fooddone well.
At least it wasn’t a shtew.
Rosie, I think ‘You got this’.

39 Andrea { 03.31.14 at 8:27 am }

Do Cathy and Anna ever cook anything apart from steak/lamb fried or put in the oven, and cover it with some sort of a sauce?
Its always raw as well.
What about all contestants doing a vegetarian dish, or something different to show versatility?
And Josh just scares me, Danielle seems to cover for him and laugh it off.
This saying from the twins We’ve got this! is driving me up the wall.
Daisy, your family dinner sounds like a feast to me, so many choices.

40 Anonymous { 04.29.14 at 9:19 pm }

Wow why watch if all you want to do is bitch about it! It’s a show people if everyone was so vanilla it would be as boring as bat shit!

41 LW { 04.29.14 at 9:25 pm }

LOL you’re a month late to this party, Anonymous!
