LAST NIGHT – Three teams were eliminated over two rounds as the Semi-Final line-up was decided.

Victor & G were sent home when their stodgy risoni failed to impress the child critics or judges. Then, Andy & Ruby’s salmon in spicy broth had the edge over sophisticated offerings from Lisa & John and Josh & Austin. This means Ibby & Romel, Matt & Luke, Pat & Bianca and Andy & Ruby will battle it out in the Semi-Finals.


Three teams have already made it through to Semi-Finals; four teams are still fighting for a spot - this is their last chance to advance. In an MKR first, there will be a triple elimination! Their fate will be decided over two rounds.
