food fight: “We feared for our lives”

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

We’re told things got so heated be­tween sib­lings Jess and Emma and friends Roula and Rachael, the Syd­ney sis­ters de­manded they stay in a sep­a­rate ho­tel to the Mel­bourne girls dur­ing the MKR home vis­its round, to avoid the pos­si­bil­ity of a phys­i­cal con­fronta­tion with their com­pet­i­tive ri­vals.

“Jess and Emma really did fear for their lives,” a show in­sider tells us, adding things got really se­ri­ous when Rachel, 21, and Roula, 34, made on-screen jibes about the sis­ters’ weight, cos­metic surgery and in­tel­li­gence. In the end, Jess, 31, and Emma, 38, felt like an al­ter­ca­tion could erupt dur­ing the show.

“Jess was tex­ting me say­ing she was des­per­ate to leave the show,” the source says.

And de­spite Seven book­ing them into sep­a­rate ho­tels, the sis­ters still felt the clash was a risk. “They felt the net­work did noth­ing about the con­flict and con­tin­u­ally put them in the same vicin­ity dur­ing film­ing.”

While spec­u­la­tion is rife Jess and Emma got the boot – since Seven con­firmed an all-girl team leaves the show af­ter a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion with a male team – our source says it’s not them.

“Of course every­one is go­ing to as­sume it’s them be­cause they’ve had surgery and they’re not afraid to speak their minds, but it wasn’t them,” re­veals our source, adding the sis­ters are com­pletely dif­fer­ent in real life to how they’re be­ing por­trayed on the show. “They’re great girls and don’t de­serve what’s hap­pen­ing to them.”­ter Roula and Rachael dished out some nasty barbs.
