Was I the only one who thought, after all the promotion, we’d be seeing a Chloe and Kelly vs Helena and Vikki finale?
So, Chloe and Kelly plus Bree and Jessica in the finale of My Kitchen Rules 2014….Who’d have thunk it? Some are calling the Perth girls win into the finale over Paul and Blair a farce and only done for ratings – there’s even a handful of ‘Boycott MKR 2014 finale‘ Facebook pages up and running and ousted contestants are less than impressed with how the two have acted throughout the season.
Don’t forget, they barely made it through the very first round of instant restaurants.
Remember the uproar when they went through and we all called foul on Manu’s scoring?
Call it what you will…there’s been more than enough ‘choice’ scores put up by judges throughout this season that has dramatically affected and thus created this final pairing we have in front of us tonight.
Needless to say, while the two were far from being anyone’s favorite team, the ‘well traveled foodies’ have, over the extended course of this season, worn me down with their cooking ability to a point, where I actually prefer these two over the inane Helena and Vikki – but that’s an entirely different post on it’s own.
Bree and Jess on the other hand looked set to have a breezy path into the finales until..you know…Jess’s complete breakdown during the MKR truck rounds and from then on, the mum’s have been on a rocky path that has been less in-your-face and less confrontational than Chloe and Kelly yet has seen them just scrape into the finale.
So while the final two teams in the finale are a surprise (I foresaw a Paul and Blair vs Cathy and Anna finale) both teams have had their fair share of wins and near misses to ensure that it’s going to be hard to pick an easy win.
Who’s your tip to win? Do you think Chloe and Kelly’s win was rigged for ratings?
My Kitchen Rules finale airs tonight, Channel 7 at 7:30pm
