‘My Kitchen Rules’ Best Bits: Always in Control

The Russians dodged a cheating scandal but it wasn’t enough to avoid elimination and the girls were sent packing along with truffle farmers Henry and Anna. Meanwhile, besties Stella and Jazzey secured the last Semi-Final spot for 2018, impressing the judges with an inventive, fun and near perfect entrée and main.

THE CHALLENGE

Three teams have already made it through to Semi-Finals; three teams are still fighting for a spot – this is their last chance to advance. In an MKR first there will be a double elimination. Teams’ fate will be decided with a three course meal. Teams can choose the flavours and ingredients but judges choose the types of courses they served – a soup for entrée in 60mins, a roast for main in 90mins and a pastry for dessert in 30mins.

ELIMINATED TEAMS

Henry & Anna

Anna: “This experience has been unreal. Our whole lives Henry and I have had a bond that is pretty unbelievable to a lot of people  and it’s gotten even stronger which I didn’t think was possible.”

Henry: “I wouldn’t have been able to do it with anybody else and wouldn’t have gotten this far. We had the best time, honestly. We didn’t win My Kitchen Rules but I think we’ve done Tassie proud.”

Olga & Valeria

Valeria: “I don’t think you’ve seen our very best.”

Olga: “Our dishes were beyond excellent. We’ve introduced Australia to Russian food.”
