As the new sea­son of MKR heats up, we ask cheeky besties Jaryd and Ben to make some tough choices!

Woman’s Day (NZ) - - Be Entertained! -

When Jaryd Gray heard Aussie hosts Pete Evans and Manu Feildel were open­ing au­di­tions for a new sea­son of My Kitchen Rules New Zealand, he knew im­me­di­ately that his flat­mate Ben Cliffe would be his per­fect part­ner in crime. The 26-year-old best friends are so close, they say it’s al­most like they’re a mar­ried cou­ple. Jaryd tells, “En­ter­ing this com­pe­ti­tion could be a big strain on some re­la­tion­ships, but Ben and I have known each other for 20 years, so noth­ing is go­ing to get in the way.” Be­fore they cook up a storm in the kitchen this week, we ask the Auck­land duo some tough ques­tions!

Eat only stuFf­ing or only gravy for din­ner?

Jaryd: I love gravy, so I’m go­ing to go gravy. Ben: It de­pends what the stuff­ing is. I’ll go stuff­ing, ac­tu­ally. It could be ba­con stuff­ing. Jaryd: It could be a beer can!

Never be able to use salt in your cook­ing or never be able to use pep­per?

Jaryd: I think you’ll have to wait and see the episode on Mon­day – it’s a very top­i­cal ques­tion. But I would pick pep­per. Ben: I’d never use salt – I love pep­per.

Eat only white choco­late or milk choco­late for the rest of your life?

Ben: I’ve al­ways been a white choco­late fan. Jaryd: I’m go­ing to go milk choco­late! Ben: This might be the turn­ing point in our re­la­tion­ship.

Eat ev­ery meal like a dog or with only your hands?

Ben: Hands be­cause dogs have to eat flick­ing their tongue. Jaryd: Hands, for sure!

Cook a meal with Pete Evans or Manu Feildel?

Ben: Manu with­out a doubt. He was such good fun in the kitchen on the show and he would be more will­ing to do cer­tain foods that Pete wouldn’t.

Mates for 20 years, Jaryd (far left) and Ben think they can out­cook the com­pe­ti­tion.
