What Was the "Batting Merrins" Incident on MKR 2017?

Here's That MKR "Incident" Everyone Is Talking About

Oh, Matt. Sometimes you just wanna reach right into the TV and stop someone before the car crash unfolds, you know? That was the case on Monday night, when Queenslander Matt put his foot in it in a big way at the My Kitchen Rules instant dinner table.

Talking about competitor Josh's history as a model, Matt decided to use the Aussie term "batting Merrins" which — in reference to league player Trent Merrin's relationship with surfer Sally Fitzbibbons — means one person in the couple is hotter than the other. "Amy's batting Merrins," he said with a laugh, about Josh's wife. No one else really laughed though, 'cause it was just awkward and a little bit nasty.

Poor Amy (who's beautiful by the way, bloody hell) put on a brave face, but you could see the hurt and it wasn't fun. Let's hope that's it for the personal insults on national TV.
