Producers of reality TV cooking series My Kitchen Rules must be spice rubbing their hands together in sheer delight.
On Sunday night Bek and Ash from Western Australia scored the lowest ever on MKR history with 26.
Then, the following night, Tim and Kyle from South Australia achieved the highest score ever on MKR history, at 100.
They were episodes seemingly made in TV promo heaven, and they happened to air one after the other.
I mean, who would have thought it? The worst team so far on the show would be followed by the best team on the show?
And that a member of each of those teams has been busy flirting with each other and are rumoured to be dating?
Be still my beating pork loins.

I mean, how could Bek and Ash have stuffed up so badly? The dishes they chose weren’t overly complicated and they were chosen to be on a reality TV cooking show.
Could it be that something fishy is going on, something far fishier than the Goldband Snapper they completely ruined?
Fishy is right, according to Steph Mulheron, one half of Steph and Dan who walked away with the competition in 2013.
She said that instead of being able to choose their own menu for their Instant Restaurants, the menus are chosen by producers.
The process starts with each team submitting dozens and dozens of recipes.
Bek and Ash, “flirty roommates” from WA receive the worst score in MRK history. Article continues…
“A lot of teams just copy and paste from the internet, and then submit them. Not knowing that they [producers] choose a three-course meal out of everything you’ve sent through. And then you get told about it at 6am on the day.”
