Lovers of culinary TV shows are in for a real treat!
The highly anticipated arrival of My Kitchen Rules is now so close that we can almost taste it! For the first time, starting Sunday, February 2nd, five teams will be battling it out for the title in a challenge that includes Chef vs Chef and House vs House competitions.
The date for “My Kitchen Rules: The Rivals” was officially released just a short time before its impending arrival on Sunday, February 2nd.
The producers released a trailer and sneak-peak as well as the airing date, which shows just how high the stakes at hand are. The show will feature a fierce rivalry between renowned Chef-captains Manu Feidel and Colin Fassnidge. Their teams will battle it out for not only the winning title but a grand AU$100,000 prize too!
Ready for Battle
Long-term lovers of the My Kitchen Rules TV show are sure to be enticed by the promise of both more of their favourite kitchen antics, and a new set of never-seen-before challenges.
The updated version of the show will combine popular aspects of the My Kitchen Rules experience with thrilling new ideas, like head-to-head battles between five fantastic teams.
Colin will be leading a team of chef hopefuls who are brand-new to the MKR kitchen. On the other hand, Manu will be leading a team of past cast favourites who already have plenty of experience wowing audiences with their mouthwatering creations.
The two teams – the Champions vs the Challengers – are expected to thrill audiences, who are in for some genuinely sensational rivalry as they watch their favourite teams fight for supremacy.
All of the contestants will be living together in an updated mansion, which should allow for some pretty interesting onscreen interactions as the rivalry between the chefs and houses continues to grow.
Contestant teams are sure to create some of the most incredible dishes that we’ve ever seen on MKR. What’s more, everyone has their eye on that mouthwatering AU$100,000 prize.
