Sib­lings are siz­zling

Per­son­al­i­ties com­pete with cook­ing in new se­ries

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - FRIDAY EXTRA -

AMALE bal­let dancer and his sis­ter will com­pete for Queens­land in a new se­ries of Chan­nel 7’s TV hit My Kitchen Rules next year.

Dancer Jake and his sis­ter Ally were among con­tes­tants un­veiled dur­ing a spe­cial MKR in­tro­duc­tion that aired as part of the last in­stal­ment of Seven’s TV tal­ent show hit The X Fac­tor.

Jake, in par­tic­u­lar, looks set to di­vide view­ers when the show de­buts ear­lier rather than later in the 2013 rat­ings year.

He con­sid­ered he and his sis­ter, from Queens­land’s Sun­shine Coast, ‘‘knew more about cul­ture than most peo­ple their ages’’ and doubted there was much he ‘‘didn’t know about food’’.

Soon af­ter the sib­lings are filmed a dish they are cook­ing ex­plodes in flames. Jake won­ders if he’s singed his eye­brows. Ally calls for a fire ex­tin­guisher. Later, she at­tempts to si­lence Jake dur­ing his ad nau­seum rep­e­ti­tion of the phrase ‘‘nail it, nail it, nail it’’ when con­tes­tants are asked how they’ll fare.

The pair aren’t the only big per­son­al­i­ties to fea­ture on the up­com­ing se­ries.

Ri­vals who also drew com­ments in­cluded friends Jenna and Joanna from South Aus­tralia. One in­tro­duces her­self: ‘‘I am lit­tle Miss Cup­cake. Don’t I look like a cup­cake, all pink and frilly?’’

Oth­ers who com­pete in the se­ries are cousins Sam and Chris from Mel­bourne, mother and daugh­ter Lisa and Candice from Western Aus­tralia, fa­ther and son Mick and Matt from Tas­ma­nia and Jessie and Ve­soir from Sydney.
