My Kitchen Rules New Zealand's First Elimination

My Kitchen Rules New Zealand's First Elimination
TUESDAY 2ND SEPTEMBER, 2014

Bogan Besties, June and Steph, are the first team eliminated from My Kitchen Rules New Zealand!

The third team to cook, June and Steph had viewers in stiches with their unique cooking techniques and unusual décor choices. But unfortunately their medieval-themed Instant Restaurant (dubbed ‘The Winchester Dungeon’) failed to impress judges Ben Bayly and Gareth Stewart, or their dinner party guests.

Tonight’s episode (Tuesday 2nd September) ventured to Orewa for the last Instant Restaurant of Group One. Tracey and Neil’s dinner proved to be a mixed bag, with Ben and Gareth slating the entrée, before the fashionable duo managed to turn things around for a stellar main.

Despite a few negative barbs, Tracey and Neil proved they had done enough to stay in the competition, scoring 57 points to June and Steph’s disappointing 47.

As the lowest scorers in Group One, June and Steph said they were ‘bummed’ to be going home, but were nevertheless looking forward to getting back to their families. Thanking them for opening their home, Ben noted that it would certainly be a lot quieter without these hilarious besties at the table.

June and Steph said of the result, “we are disappointed that we didn’t get to show our full potential as cooks, but we just wish all the other teams the best of luck.”

MKR NZ continues tomorrow evening (Wednesday 3rd September) with the introduction of the Group Two teams: Polynesian Cooks, Aaron and Heather, Ian and Sandie a.k.a The Fireman and his Flame, Christchurch Cuties, Jessie and Ricki, Corporate Dads, Josh and Aaron, and Hawkes Bay Sisters, Kelly and Megan.

Who has what it takes to be crowned the first My Kitchen Rules New Zealand champion?

#MKRNZ

Ends.

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
