Watch: The Cheating Scandal That 'Rocked' MKR Last Night
We love high-octane drama in reality TV and large night we got an extra-large serving of it — in the form of curry paste in a jar. Hitting the My Kitchen Rules kitchen for the first time, couple Matt and Alyse — who have been rather, um, critical of their competitors so far — decided to cook their curry main with a jar of store-bought sauce.
Being a cooking competition, their move didn't go down heaps well, with chef Pete Evans springing them in the act (wonder if the ever-present camera crew had anything to do with that?) and then serving up some brutal scores as punishment. As a result, an otherwise on-form Matt and Alyse only scored 52 out of 110 for the night, placing them firmly in the bottom spot alongside rivals Josh and Amy. Tonight both couples will face a sudden-death cook-off and one pair will be out of the competition. Moral of the story? Don't cheat, kids.
