My Kitchen Rules contestant Betty Banks cooked up a storm in the kitchen during Tuesday night’s episode, but it’s not her cooking that’s attracting criticism.
The 27-year-old last week felt forced to defend herself against an onslaught of unkind comments from people who slammed her for “showing too much skin”.

The self-described social media influencer has an Instagram account under the name Bettina Banks littered with shots of her active at the gym, at the beach, posing for model shots and just generally enjoying life.
Sick of people criticising her for flaunting the body she works hard for, Betty took to Instagram to call out the shamers with an empowering message to her followers.
“Here’s to the women who work so god damn hard for their bodies only to have society say that they still aren’t good enough and to cover it up,” she wrote.
“Woman, you are good enough. You are strong enough.”
Betty urged the women “who are out there hustling every day” to not allow themselves to be shamed by “what you worked hard for”, reminding them they get to decide what they do with their body.
“I get SLAMMED all the time for “showing too much skin”. But isn’t it my body? So, IT’S MY RULES,” she continued.
