Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Television -

SHE was crowned this year’s first re­al­ity TV vil­lain in the show about home cooks that has de­liv­ered cham­pagne rat­ings for South­ern Cross.

Now ‘‘ Princess’’ Jen­nifer Evans and her bestie, Leigh Sexton, have a real chance of win­ning the My Kitchen Rules crown.

As one of the final four duos left in the com­pe­ti­tion, the pair has sur­vived on­line jibes and at­tacks, the dis­cov­ery that Evans fell preg­nant while film­ing, and been suc­ceeded as res­i­dent vil­lains by the Gold Coast’s ‘‘ Dr Evil’’ Peter Hamil­ton and Vic­to­ria’s Thomas Carr – the bloke who wouldn’t eat, but cer­tainly could cook, hum­ble pie.

Evans and Sexton will take on Tas­ma­nia’s Me­gan Woodman and Andy Ap­pleby in the first semi- final tonight. A win will see them go into Tues­day night’s grand final cook- off against the win­ner of to­mor­row night’s chal­lenge, which pits South Aus­tralians Nic Maz­zone and Rocco La Bella against Vic­to­ria’s sib­lings Emily and Carly Che­ung.

For Evans and Sexton, it’s been a wild ride. Even if they don’t win the $ 250,000 prize, they have achieved per­sonal vic­to­ries money can’t buy.

De­spite a grow­ing aver­sion to scal­lops, Evans is bloom­ing in her preg­nancy, while Sexton, a florist, is plan­ning to add a cafe to the busi­ness she runs along­side her hus­band.
