Over two million Australians tuned in to watch as NSW sisters Sammy and Bella Jakubiak were announced the winners of My Kitchen Rules last night — not quite the 5.74 million who saw Adam Liaw take out the second MasterChef Australia title, but still an impressive result. Interestingly, MasterChef held the launch for their third series at the show’s Sydney headquarters at the same time as the MKR grand finale, where they were joined by some new and former contestants, as well as cooking talent involved in the series such as Maggie Beer and Adriano Zumbo. They also got to preview the third series, which judging by the clip above looks like it’ll be grander than ever (cameos include Nigella Lawson and Heston Blumenthal). Judge Gary Mehigan — who has commented on the stark similarities between his show and MKR — said last night, “You have to admit when you watch all the other shows on telly, the production values on this show are second to none. It’s the best-looking show on television.” The third series of MasterChef will premiere on May 1, the same night as the Logies. Are you excited for even more cooking?
