It’s Time to Get Cookin’ Because My Kitchen Rules is Looking for Contestants for 2022!
Are you a wizard in the kitchen? Do your friends and family believe you have the potential to become a Michelin Star chef? Then your time to shine has come knocking on your door because My Kitchen Rules is looking for contestants for their 2022 season.
Returning to the head of the table on the popular cooking show is Manu Feildel, who will be accompanied by some of the world’s biggest food stars as they judge a new batch of passionate home cooks.
After taking a hiatus, the series will return back to its original format — state versus state. Contestants will cook real food in their own homes, serving their creations to not only the judges but their fellow opponents.
Thrilled to be back, Manu said: “I’m very excited to return to the head of the table and share my passion for food with you all. I can’t wait to be back in Australian homes again, meeting more incredible home cooks and sharing their food dreams. Bring on 2022!”
So if you’re an aspiring home cook and think you have what it takes to deliver a three-course menu and win the title of My Kitchen Rules Champion then apply here.
While Manu will be returning to MKR next year, his co-star Pete Evans will be noticeably absent, after being embroiled in a string of controversies.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Manu said: “Pete and I are great mates and nothing has changed there. We have worked together for a very long time and I love the guy. The fact he won’t be sitting next to me is not my choice.”
Pete parted ways with the show and the network after a decade, saying goodbye to his $800,000 contract in the process. After sharing anti-vax conspiracy theories and neo-Nazi memes on Facebook, he lost dozens of sponsorships and had his cookbooks removed from shelves.
“It just chased a certain direction in my personal view. I sort of came on board as the last two seasons were going to air, but it chased villains and gossip and bitchiness and all that kind of stuff. (It had) really extended dinner parties, we’d blown it up to 60 episodes so it was a massive commitment.
“(Next year) it’s back to what people like which is six couples, cooking in their own kitchens, intimate dinner parties like you’d have on a Saturday night and back to unbelievable food.”
